Re: Jeans

Marigold: you've confused me. Jeans that don't need ironing: is there any other kind??? And who was it who found loose fit jeans, & where? I've been looking for a new pair of jeans, but being a size 16, "skinny" jeans & "jeggings" are out of the question. IMHO it should be illegal to make such thing...

Re: Recipes

For a lazy weekend brunch, I can recommend the exotically named "eggy bread with cheese & mushrooms". For 1 person:- Wipe & slice a handful of mushrooms. Fry gently in butter. Meanwhile crack 2 - 3 eggs into a wide, shallow dish (the lid of a pyrex casserole dish is ideal). Add a handful of grated c...

To hatch or not to hatch...

I'm debating whether to let my Light Sussex have some hatching eggs when she goes broody this summer. I've never reared chicks before, & am weighing up the pros & cons. Pros: We get to experience rearing (well, watching Hope rearing) a family of chicks. If I get good hatching eggs, we hopefully end ...

Re: Bats

The problem, sadly, is that moths, beetles & butterflies don't pay council tax, whereas the people who buy (or rent) new houses will do. That's one of the reasons why councils grant planning permission for our precious green spaces :-(

Re: Household bygones

It's not exactly household, but my C reg Vauxhall Nova had a great feature that I've never seen since. You could blow warmed air at your body & hands while blowing cool air at your face at the same time. Great for keeping you alert on long journeys. Also the head rest had a gap in the middle of it, ...

Re: Squirrel Lasagne

Durian is truly revolting IMHO. It smells like a gas leak. Ugghh. Cuttlefish is something else that I can't recommend. It's like eating refrigerated cartilidge, as far as the texture goes. I've also suffered a particular Chinese variety of fermented tofu that smells & tastes of horse manure; the sme...

Re: Time to say goodbye to this batch. :(

When I first decided to keep ex-batts, my plan was to keep them until they stopped laying, then let them "fully free range" & let nature take its course. Once I'd been given advice on the forum as to how the latter would mean their dying in terror in the jaws of a fox, & once we'd adopted our first ...

Re: Weather

I had to wait years for my chainsaw; my husband wouldn't let me have one until I stopped having PMT, as it made me accident prone! I'm much happier using it around the garden since having proper training, though it should never be used above shoulder height (even if you climb with one- which I don't...
