Re: My Cycle tour (Bristol to Scotland) can I stay at yours?

Hello Bristol, this is King's Lynn calling..... over!

Hot meal, bath, sofa, maybe bed available!

I know your route doesn't go through here, but you can never tell what will happen on these journeys.

Take care, and God speed,

Sarah

Re: Birth-to-potty or sized nappies?

I used Motherease from about 3 weeks as that was what we were given from Freecycle by someone! They were great. He was not the worlds biggest baby, but they were not bulky on him at all. We also had a range of ages of nappy, i,e, some had been through a couple of babies, some had been just on my son...

Climbing back on the ish wagon.

Good evening, my name is Sarah and I fell off the -ish wagon about 8 months ago. In that time I have bought plastic. I have lazily put stuff in the kitchen bin and not the compost. I have thrown away plastic bags. I have bought non fairtrade because it was cheaper. I have used washing powder. Oh the...

Thats great.......as long as it works for you thats all that matters. I must admit that it's great being able to make a cup o' tea/coffee without having to wait for the kettle to boil. There's no denying that they do save a lot of electricity too. That was it's main selling point to us. Even when w...

Defending my onecup! (LOL!)

Well Trivet wise, we'd have to run a real kettle on the gas cooker as we don't have a real fire anywhere, nor yet a wood burning stove. We're terrible suburbanites! Yes, it filters, yes we can run it without filters, but we're in East Anglia and choose not to. We like our water to be vaguely liquid,...

Hot water maker!

Woo! WE have just bought a new hot water maker called a Tefal Quick Cup. 1 cup of hot water in 3 seconds. Seriously. Hot filtered water, whenever I want it! Or just filtered water. And the bonus for us, being the way we are, is that there is no boil the kettle, forget, boil the kettle, get the cups ...

Placenta recipes

Halfway through my labour the midwife (lovely chap named Paul) and I were having a discussion about how consumption of it can really encourage hormones which aid in relaxation and well being, thus helping with PND, breastfeeding letdown (which I have been told is also canablistic!), and the contract...

Dwarf bread for the small person

I made my own bread because I was cutting out as many outside influences on his diet as I could. The short story is that from when he was born until he was 6 months, he slept from about 7-7 with a 0300 feed. No problemo. I was alert and bouncy, he was alert and bouncy. At 10 weeks he seemed to fit. ...

Dwarf bread

It was supposed to be sourdough bread, but right now it looks like something that the Dwarf Bread Museum of Whirlygig Alley, Ankmorpok, would be proud to have. The starter is over a week old, fed every day and kept in the kitchen. It went bubbly and frothy when the flour and water was added to make ...

Thankyou for all the replies - I am going to plant more seeds and grow them on the window sills, and some of the stuff which was due for the school garden can be tried again at school and some seedlings taken up to there whilst I plant more seeds here. We planted potatoes in the school garden on Mon...

Greenhouse/wind interface disaster.

well, maybe disaster is a bit strong, it's not as if the produce was to be our only source of nourishment, but the strong winds that we had today managed to pull over the little plastic greenhouse that we have. I think I've managed to save some stuff, and my kitchen is now covered in compost, but I'...

Wow.

I am well sorry to hear that, because I am with Milims on the impressions in my life and the way stuff I do has changed, as a direct result of the info on his blog and the way the thinking was.

Ah well.

It's the mix of teacher/counsellor/psychologist that gets me. And their need to tell me about their other children/state of the marriage/ colour of the kitchen and so on. Oh now I sound miserable. I'm not. really I'm not........ Sarah p.s. has David seen topicbox.org.uk? Ideal for Primary teachers.

Very happy to find he is alive and kicking! Please send my best wishes, and so forth, and I hope whatever is wrong is resolved quickly, whether that means his blog comes back up or not is irrelevant, if you see what I mean. I explained that really badly. Parents Evening does my entire (organic) root...
