Re: I'm Back Too - and I have LAND!!!

Congratulations, how fabulous. I do hope everything goes smoothly and you can get in quickly. Is the land all nice and neatly ploughed and ready just to be planted?

Re: Not buying new

Hi Flo, Sorry I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. Are you saying that it's a bad thing to donate unwanted goods to charity or sell them secondhand? What should we do with them? If you're saying that we must keep everything until it wears out (apart from unwanted gifts) what happens if our ...

Re: Chickens in the trees...

Lol. I think different breeds have different jumping/flying abilities. I had a white (something, can't remember) bantam that flew up on my roof the moment the run door was opened but the Pekins would have to walk around a matchstick.

Re: Good Easter weekend everyone?

Sounds like everyone had a good weekend. I too did housework and indoor chores on Friday. Saturday was a trip to the seaside with my mum but on Sunday and Monday, I spent all day in the garden :-)

Cheers

Re: Planning for being self sufficientish in 2015

My jeans always wear through between the thighs and I can't bring myself to throw them out because the rest is fine. My plan is to combine several pairs of old jeans into one (or more, if successful) pair of patchwork jeans. I was looking at a pair of jeans in exactly the same way earlier. Do let m...

Re: 101 uses for little bits of string

In the shop we use little bits of string like that for bundling up invoices etc, and also clothes hangers... (yes, it's that kind of shop where lots of miculs lie about - love that word, why have I never come across it before?) Lol - cos I made it up. I used it first on this forum a few years ago. ...

101 uses for little bits of string

I can't believe we haven't had this one... Each week I get a box of organic wonderfulness from Abel & Cole that is tied up with two short pieces of string (about 18 inches long). Of course being the horder that I am, I can't possibly throw them away so they get stored along with all the other mi...

Re: Planning for being self sufficientish in 2015

I'm really excited, I'm buying an extra plot of land from next door. An allotment would have been a lot cheaper but there's more chance of my tending it if it's just outside the back door. I've also found someone nearby who helps out with the garden in exchange for a share of the produce :-) Looking...

Hi - It's a form of controlled doodling. Much easier to illustrate than explain. There are loads of examples on google images or Pinterest.
