Well done old bean!

The crafts page background is a bit hectic, makes the info quite tricky to read. ONLY MY OPINION but it's meant to be constructive critism. :flower:

A very nice website indeed.

I wouldn't find it hard as I don't go out shopping on a Saturday anyway. Too busy! I think most of the folks here on SSF wouldn't find it a challenge next Saturday. I shall however stay in, cook and spend a little money on gas. I go shopping once or twice a week for food. I may trawl the charity sho...

When I was in Aus, I went to a local farmers CO~OP and bought a Drizabone full length coat. I put it on, ju...

There's nothing wrong with cats, I am just not a cat person really. I tolerate them and I am kind to them, but I don't go all gooey over them. I don't have a problem with moggies, apart from the 20 over the fence who are full of mange, worms, fleas, not neutered and have bad tummies. (evidence all o...

Stoney, I wouldn't ...

Someone told me and don't hold me to this, that the recycle your plakky bag bins in the entrance of the store are emptied into the skip and dumped! Do you think this could be true? I mean...

42. My Gran. Well, actually, shes nearly 85. She was trained to be a killer of the enemy! This was during the war as part of the Home Front. She only told us this year about it...as it was a secret.
