If you're interested in cooking etc, you may like to have a look at this forum

Lots of friendly people interested in food, trying stuff out etc, and lots of experienced cooks to help with queries.

As long as you're not a caterpillar Chicky

Lesley, hope son is feeling better soon.

The source of the smell is thought to be the tray under the drain in the fridge - it seemed to be full of unidentifiable smelly gunk!  It was almost impossible to get at, but OH worked miracles with long BBQ skewers, J cloths and kitchen roll, then antibac liquid.  Only the slightest whiff this morning after the kitchen had been shut up all night so hopefully some Neutradol will sort that out.  If it comes back I think we'll need a kitchen fitter to come and deconstruct the kitchen   Talk about a design flaw

.... Snow disappeared fairly quickly yesterday but it snowed on and off all morning at work. ...


It's been trying to snow here this morning   but I think we've seen the last of it for the time being - there are blue patches of sky and the sun's trying to shine.

HOSTA - you have a PM

Good morning all  G'day Pat

I'm a bit late on board this morning - instead of waking first as usual I was still sound asleep when OH brought me my first mug of coffee!   So instead of coming down in my dressing gown and noodling with you lot I had my shower and dressed and now I'm on the sofa with my second mug of coffee. 

It's probably a good day to have a change of routine as we've a friend coming for the weekend and there's housework and cooking to be done now so that I can relax and natter when she's here.

BL - I hope the lady was reassured that her much loved family home will be much loved and enjoyed by its new family - I'm sure that will make leaving it a little easier to bear

Hosta - glad she's making a referral (particularly with waiting lists being what they are for psych support).  It's good to take action asap rather than when the wrong pattern has become entrenched.  Hope it all works for you.   Don't worry, we won't keep you up late when we visit

I did get out into the garden today, but only to feed the birds, hang the washing out and get it back in again ...... but it was good and dry when I got it in

Hello everyone

I'm back from tennis and the supermarket.  Loadsa shopping to put away but I'm going to have a sit down first.

The mouse was in Tootles' cooker

Think a cooker man sorted it out. 

Sweet dreams Pat ((hugs)).

DD - I hate getting a puncture - I can change a wheel, but now I've got a car that doesn't have a spare so I have to call the Green Flag Man and get towed to a garage

Wonder how Hosta's Sleep Survey went.

Yes, it reminded me of that too Hosta ... what did happen?

OH thinks our smell may be due to a blockage in the fridge drain thingy - the side of the unit is about to be removed too ....... 


Posted: 24/02/2016 at 09:22

Hosta  that sounds like a big improvement

Hello the rest of you

OH has removed the kickboard of the units by the oven and is investigating - there's been a faint but strange smell for a couple of days - we've eliminated absolutely everything -  my guess is that it'll disappear and we'll never find out what it was but we've got a friend staying for the weekend so I'm going to buy some Neutradol after I've been to tennis.

...  Dove I expect I'll be providing lots of cake at the beginning of each month

I don't suppose anyone will turn up their noses at a regular supply

Jimmy - hope little one is better soon ((hugs))
