Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

A mid day sleep is needed when you are writing on oneguy at 3.21am :surprised: Today is art, and Friday lunch with friends. Bob is at the model engineers this evening so my evening to potter. I have fabric left over from my ‘mock’ knitted dress (now finished and very pleased I am with it too) so I t...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Its good for the mind to feel good about oneself. One of the best ways to lift your mood I think. My dress is almost finished, just have the hem to do. I bought the fabric months ago. It looks like its knitted but it isn’t its double-jersey fabric. I always like knitted dresses but they don't suit m...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We walked to Matalan, about 2-3 miles on the opposite side of Rochdale to us. We found a suitable suit not excessive in price, obviously aimed at those who have to wear suits on a daily basis. Jacket and trousers sold separately. I shall have to shorten the trousers, even though they are described a...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

I dont think I will be going with the LibDems, they still bundle in some things I cannot agree with in their policies, If their is a GE soon I dont think there is a radical socialist option going in my bit of Stockport so I might waste a vote on the Greens. I have always been LibDem but like you th...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

I read this forum occasionally, as you generally make sense, although I don’t always agree with the party analyses. Today I wanted to find a glimmer of hope in your words but I read the same as I think. Its a big MESS. Its obvious that our leader had and has no new ideas. I liked the comment from th...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Back in the 70's we had a favourite pork and beans recipe using belly pork.....it was always cheap, wonderful and warming. Taken from one of the self sufficiency books that I also devoured with enthusiasm! 20190914_181644.jpg 20190914_181616.jpg We had one too. I loved the flavour but spent ages cu...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Did you get the shirts from where I suggested Stanley or somewhere else. As for the meat, I often see slow roasted belly pork on a rotisserie at the market in France, it looks and smells delicious and I would eat that but it really is a bit too fatty . Today, this morning, we are going to our daught...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Trippy...kindred spirits...can't pay that much for a meal (considering I can only eat a main course). I never have "before's" or "afters". Can hardly do justice to a main course any more. (And I HATE wasting money!) You didn’t have to eat three courses. Everything was priced separately. I usually o...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

You won’t change my mind Stanley, i would spend so long sorting the meat from the fat the meal would be cold.I really don’t like fatty meat, nothing to do with diet or health just plain don’t like it. Bob and my son in law do bbq spareribs, cooked for hours. Delicious but again very fatty. I know th...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Anyway they are both too fatty for me, I do eat cheap cuts with a long slow cook but not those two Dentist this morning, just a check up then craft. I shall just be sitting nattering whilst I do my...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

It was a ‘different ‘ restaurant Tripps but not extraordinarily expensive by present day standards other than pub grub, Harvester ( which I hate) etc. We pay that in France for a run of the mill ordinary menu that is not plat de jour. Many ordinary places these days have main courses at £14. 99 plus...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I like looking at the menus of these restaurants. I'd say this one was bit 'toppy' - or am I hopelessly out of touch? I didn't know codfish had cheeks, and truffle oil on the skinny chips would not be my first choice. :smile: Out of touch I am afraid. Cods cheeks feature in many ordinary restaurant...
