Re: Waste free week

I was just wondering the same thing. Do I do it on a regular basis because I only put the bin out every 3-4 weeks, when it's full.
Nice to get a bag though.

Re: 101 hot meals to prepare in less than five minutes

10) Croque monsieur - only for special occasions. 11) Sausage and tomatoes - cut sausages up into bite-size pieces, brown in pan, add chopped tomatoes - fresh or tinned and season. Cook through and serve with crusty bread. Mm mm. Can add other veg if available but not necessary, but good sausages ar...

Re: have we got any knitters with some spare time please

Hi Russian Doll Can't help with the knitting I'm afraid but saw the horse bit and wondered if you could use a fleecy blanket with a big horse on it. Single bed. My daughter loved it when she was little. Scares the hell out of me. I found it in the back of the airing cupboard only this weekend and wa...

Welcome xone.

Do you, by any chance, have any up to date knowledge re planning permission and wind turbines - especially in Scotland?

Re: Postponing the dream

I agree with Annpan the BF needs to have got another job before leaving - current situation being a bit unstable n'all. If you really want to move in with these people maybe you could get together with them first and discuss all your worries. Maybe they share some of them and will be glad of the opp...

Re: Liberal media resurgens

Don't know about sharper reporting Rod. I've only noticed over the last few years that the media seems to spend less time going out finding and reporting on news than creating it out of nothing more than speculation and rumour.

I spend a lot of time swearing at the TV.

Re: What's for dinner?

Me too Annpan.

Could you persuade my OH that this is absolutely crucial to our survival.

OK maybe overstated a little there, but desirable.

BTW - Butternut squash korma (mother only likes korma so we bung chillies in after serving hers) tonight.

Re: Fife diet anyone?

Looks really interesting. I didn't listen to it, just read about it on the web. Some of the comments were more interesting - aren't people odd? There was one about how it couldn't work because they couldn't grow coffee! For heavens sake do these people really only see things in black and white. Why ...

Re: A box of one's own

Oh me too Shirley. And unfortunately it's the English who seem to be the main culprits. Too much equity in property. Without being too harsh, with a bit of luck the current financial difficulties may curtail this practice, and drop prices sufficiently so that locals, on local incomes, can afford to ...

Re: advice please

In the garden in our new house we discovered it was full of rubble - ex MOD buildings and junk. We put in raised beds ~1m2 so we've only had to clear the stones from those areas. We dug them 1 spade depth, put cardboard in the bottom, backfilled and added compost to each one so we've got about 2 spa...
