Re: Household bygones

I miss the humble potato masher. The one with the small steel holes at the bottom and long handle, not the plastic ones with short handles, (Ive snapped a few), nor the completely steel ones with quiggly mash area. Excuse the description. :-)07 Maybe they are still produced?

Re: Pigs

Wow I had no idea that pigs would eat humans. Learn something every day. And that's put my favourite film, Babe, the pig, in a different light. πŸ™„ 😁

Looks like you have a budding percussionist! Should take on Britain's Got Talent!

Re: Pecking order

I'm not so sure why, but it's not food related. She just tip taps their beaks, or like the sunlounger or the shed door. I think it's something to do with sound and hard surface.

Re: Busy, busy!

LadyA, I think that we are probably at the opposite extreme. 😁 I just admit that I wear my walking boots most days, as I walk almost every night , just to keep active, as I am sat down all day in an office. I wear my dresses, skirts, high heels for work or on holiday. I'd rather be in my scruffs, in...
