Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

The hot wash cycle doesn't get used much in my house, most of it goes through at 30 degrees. I did wash 3 pairs of cotton overalls at 40 degrees earlier in the week but they were particularly dirty. I wash everything at 40C. There is a view that this isn't high enough to get any thermal sterilisati...

He is definitely cheeky, he will be 5 this month and will no doubt get 'cheekier'. Starting school a couple of weeks ago will probably contribute to this :laugh5:

Re: Where Have You Just Been?

My son lives just around the corner from Gawthorpe Hall, it's a lovely place but I've never been inside. It has always been closed when I've been, I must go again.

He's been bolted back together and is 'full of beans' this morning. He wasn't impressed by the anesthesia process, it took 3 of them to wrestle a cannula into the back of his hand. 20190915_091240.jpg Latest report is that he escaped his room this morning and has been for a walk around the rest of t...

Small boys are normally quite robust but youngest grandson proved that theory wrong today, he jumped off a chair and landed wrong. He's managed to break his left elbow in 4 places and is currently in theatre being wired back together.

I wonder how many kids eat at a table today.
All 3 of mine ate at the dining table, it is still the case at my house.

There is a table in the kitchen for breakfast and one in the dining room for dinner and tea.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

You would almost certainly find a replacement at Boundary Mill. I'm fairly sure you will also find something in Ilkley at a price. :extrawink: Pendle Village Mill (jct 12 M65, behind B&Q) is another option, not as big as Boundary but they do have a line of 'countrywear' at reasonable prices.

I have a vague recollection of inputting the wifi password into the TV last time...

If it was hard wired it would have just reconnected. If it uses wifi, new router, new password.

Is it just the satellite box that uses powerlines or does the TV use the wifi?
