I've just read on the side of my YORKIE MANSIZE BUTTONS that the suggested serving is THREE buttons.


Pft. Its almost as laughable as calling it  a SHARING bag. 

(Oh. Had hoped for more jazzy smilies since the forum has gone the way of simpliest style that makes me think it aimed at either the much younger than I ... or the very old.)

Why are the adverts so loud in comparison to the rest of the forum? This muted purple is reminding me of the colour of grandmas bathroom.

Awful new format for forum

Oh dear! It feels as though I am using my mothers computer to come on here

I'm all for taking advantage of something that costs me nothing but is it just me that thinks you can clearly see more of the adverts that what you are trying to post?

Planting strawberries now

I have elsanta in hanging baskets; I usually get a really good long season with them (they're already flowering and last year I was having to cut the flowers off in October to try and encourage them to rest ready for winter) and they have a nice taste.

Get them in the ground they'll have plenty of time to catch up in this confusing weather.

Walked 11 miles yesterday, feeling a little tired today!

Hostafan; did you know you can buy a speaker inside a pillow? As a chronic pain sufferer (who regularly used to spend far too many nights wide awake letting my imagination take me to all levels of hell) I find it brilliant to have so I can listen to recorded bbc radio programmes and have them playing all night without disturbing anyone. It means your attention is taken away from the pain and on to the daft daftness of the news quiz or goon show or whatever suits your style.

It might be worth investing in if you continue to struggle and don't want to consider a little medicated help xx

That's good to know. I was brought some from B&Q yesterday "voted best by Which" and it absolutely reeks of chemicals.

Morning all. Did you feel the sonic boom last night?

I'm off work AND IT'S SUNNY!! I don't know what to do with myself. I had planned lots of wet weather paperwork.

Have a great day everyone!

Full Sunday roast and all the trimmings consumed.

Star: I watched the A Word. Not normally an emotional person I was in tears at times (long day hadn't helped!) 

Last of sea holy roots potted up, cake in the oven, now to decide what to do with this joint of pork.

Small triangular garden design. Advice required for hosting please.

I have to agree with others, a small lawn is a right royal pain! IF you want green you can consider artificial grass or (in my eyes better) a chamomile lawn. Others I love the idea of chippings that you can put pots on to create ever changing displays of colour.
