You are young at heart when...

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

Somewhere in the dark and nasty regions, where nobody goes, stands an ancient castle. Deep within this dank and uninviting place lives Berk...

My OH was delighted to find 2 conker trees in our garden this autumn, and spent a happy half-hour or so outside collecting conkers in a little bucket.
He then brought them back inside to show me.

Honestly, you'd think he was about 7!!

Nev - my total fave Trap door episode was the one where Rog escaped from the Trap door and Berk gets really annoyed with him and anounces - large club in hand "Its bonkin' time!! 1,2,3,4 can't remember the rest!!" Creases me up every time!!!


If you like Trap Door you'll probably also like "Stop It and Tidy Up". The classic there was that you must not touch a naughty or you'll catch naughty pox and the only cure is a good sit down!!!

Hhhmmmmm - think I may have a strange sense of humour as well as being a big kid at heart!!!

Including:
The Big Bad I Said No
Go and Play (with his favourite toy)
Bee-have and Bee-quiet
Brush Your Teeth

Oh no, I do that!! I got a lovely pink Miffy mug for my birthday from a friend (it was in a lovely tin and everything)

I haven't seen "stop and tidy up" but I LOVE the trap door. My favourite was when there was something coming out of the trap door and Burk looks around says "ahh little Drut", picks him up and flings him at it! :lol:

Cracks me up - never saw the bonking time one but sounds pretty good :mrgreen:

I'm with you M3.

These folks are nuts.

Are they being rude to folks from Berkshire?

I lost this thread completely by the end of page one. I've absolutley no idea what people are talking about here. I think I may have found the foreign language section of the forum - it looks like English, but...
