Re: Stupid, stupid people......

I can't help but think "at least she tried"

We live in a strange world where a huge proportion of the population of westernised world buys all their food in plastic and is discusted by the thought that dirt may have ever touched food....

at least some people try.... :dontknow:

Re: How can I make- err encourage them to lay?

I think you really need to leave them to it, make them comfortable and leave them to settle in again.... I don't know if a little cider vinegar in their water might give them a wee perk (wouldn't hurt anyway) Re you sure their not laying in a bush somewhere - It has happened to me before... one day ...

Re: Moon Pads

Re: any money saving advice

It might be an idea to have a family meeting about finances (we've done it and our 4YO seems to understand enough to make her stop asking for stuff) We have just stated as fact 'We just don't have the money" You might find out the kids are willing to meet you half way. If you have a supermarket...
