Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

The smoke may be from me. I couldn't work out why the new kitchen sponge looked so daggy. Turns out hubby used it to clean the bird shit off the van windscreen this morning. He has been spoken to. A new sponge has come out the packet. The old one is his to treasure. I "vented my spleen" about my kit...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Speaking of grumpy...hubby started on Metformin quite recently. I don't think it agrees with him at all. He had his first hypo yesterday ( after being in a contrary mood all day). At first I didn't recognise the signs...then it did cross my mind, but I dismissed it almost immediately when I recalled...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

So, did Col have a go with the mower, Wendy? I can't use our mower because it doesn't turn off when you are finished. hubby can turn it off by sticking his hand in somewhere, but I am not getting up that close and personal with the beastie. I would just have to let it chug away until it ran out of f...

Re: FORGOTTEN CORNERS

I can remember people taking their aprons off to answer the door (remembering that "friends" came to the back door and "strangers" came to the front door). Women "put their lippy on" to go to the shops/doctor etc. I must say, I hate the trend of people (young people) shopping for groceries in their ...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We don't understand that here. You put in an offer, offer is accepted, papers are signed immediately (the day you make/accept offer) Two day cooling off period for both buyer and seller. After that, it is rock solid. Done Deal!
If the buyer backs out, seller keeps the deposit and moves on.

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

"Cook's Nips"....is something I believe in. If I have to cook a major meal for people, a small glass of wine, sipped slowly, does help the process! (It often means I have to go without in any pre-dinner drinks because I need to make sure dinner is perfect). But once it is all underway, within 15 min...

Fish Finger/Cheese/Mayo Sandwiches tonight...easy. These are Jamie Oliver Fish Fingers. I had vowed not to buy them again because I can never seem to get them crunchy ( Birdseye ones go lovely and crunchy). I shall try them in the Air Fryer tonight instead. If they won't go crunchy in there, I'm not...

Darn. It means you will have to wash your feet two days in a row! The last of the packing is done. Just the fridge stuff to pack tomorrow. I've turned the fridge/freezer on in the van. I always put a container of water in the freezer overnight to check everything is working. I've checked that since ...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Is your internet fibre optic, or does it run off a telephone connection/router? (Ours is fibre optic cable, high speed). I don't get any charge for FaceTime. My son does not have fibre optic cable yet, as it hasn't been rolled out in his area yet. So it eats into his data allowance on his mobile pho...

I have worn my wee self out today, cleaning. (And yes, I did the stairs too, Stanley. Now that is a job that gets harder with age!) The birds are annoying me again, pecking away in the borders and making an awful mess, so I have had to sweep as well. Must take it easy this afternoon I think, or I sh...

Never heard of Pan Yan Pickle, Rajah's Pickle or Hoe's Brown Sauce. ( there is a recipe for Pan Yan Pickle on food.com) I cooked up all the Veg in my fridge into a French Style Chicken Casserole. Half for tonight, and half saved for a night in the van. Our green waste gets collected tomorrow, so I w...

I thought it was cold yesterday. We apparently had SNOW just 20 mins up the road. Cold again here by 4pm. Heater on, and teeth have now stopped chattering.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Yes, she was using your internet. Do you have a limit? Most of my FaceTime calls last 10 -15 mins ( once a week). I could call him more than that, but he works shift work, and I have to check his shifts so I know what suits us both.

The more meals I can just shove in the oven, the better. Leaves us free to sip a glass of wine until t...
