Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

:biggrin2: Sucking pennies didn't do Stanley any harm! You wouldn't be able to see much from a penny hole these days, a 50 pence coin might do the trick .....dipped in bleach first of course! :smile:

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

I'm glad I am not the only one reading things and chanting my mantra "I must not say anything"! My mouth tends to trip over my resolve at times, and I tend to say things that prove unpopular. Stanley tends to get a bit cross with me on occasion ....( but he worships YOU Wendy, so you are safe). Min...

We got the barbecue out last night and had chicken kebabs with salad and guacamole.
Stanley you might as well get the sugar bowl and spoon it in. :notthatway:

I took that as a suggestion to a newcomer that the recipe would be more relevant to the "tea" topic, not that it was off topic where it was. :extrawink:

My history society pal Margaret and I took some friends to see the vaccary walls in Wycoller. One is a archaeologist from Harrogate and the other a historian with a particular interest in monastic granges and neither had heard of Wycoller before and both were amazed by the walls. It was a lovely day...

No not at all gullible, I actually posted a welcome message myself soon after you but being slightly suspicious of the "nice to meet ya" decided to check the ip address.

My brother has just managed to sell his house in York after a long 18 months on the market, probably because it is leasehold. The terms and conditions are very clearly set out and it isn't an onerous lease but people have been staying away without checking out the details.

I normally would China, but as you had already commented I left it out of respect for you. I didn't want you wondering what had happened to your post! There was no link included in the original post so no apparent threat!

Over the last two or three years since Karen from Barlick Library took over as manager it has been a well organised, efficient, clean and happy place for staff and customers, increasing the all important footfall and getting it upgraded ...

Try and make sure your yoghurt is full fat Stanley, the Greek or Greek Style ones are lowest in carbs, or use double cream. :smile:

There are a few swallows around here but they haven't started nesting in the barn. We had a lot of frogspawn in the pond but nowhere near as many tadpoles as last year when the pond was overrun with them!

Don't be surprised to get a 4 am visit from the anti-carb squad. And then there's the sausages! You'll be lucky to get away with two years on lettuce.

Dennis and Sparky need some breeze to be happy! Sparky is wearing his fly rug which protects him but he is still moving around restlessly trying to escape the (possibly imaginary) midges. I bring them inside when the breeze drops in the evening and put them back out when the sun goes down, hopefully...
