Liri  - that's a beautiful scene


BL - when Christmas is approaching I accumulate cardboard boxes and corrugated paper in the garage.  It's easier to wrap awkward shaped presents if they're in a box

Absolutely nothing to do with gardening too too

Aym - have you tried this recipe for Cardamom Cake? It's delicious and a bit favourite in this house.

I think that's Fusarium -as far as I'm aware there's not a lot you can do at this time of year - it should recover in the spring

You have to check the scores on the doors regularly. I used to use a takeaway that had four stars. One time I got sick after rating their food and checked again only to find that it now had one star.


The strange thing is that restaurants etc are not compelled to display their rating.


See original post

 No - that's why it's best to check on the site I linked to - or go straight to your Local Authority website - most have details of how to check.


Vishu, that's interesting information - thanks.

Aaargh!  I have problems on my laptop - it's not well -  I think I'm going to have to take it to Wonky's Lovely Hub over the Christmas hols!!! 


In the meantime OH says I can borrow his laptop 'when he's not using it' and otherwise I can pop in on my phone .... good job I've got 'stuff to do' over the next few days.


Right, wreath making here we come .............

If you want to get a takeaway or visit a restaurant and have any concerns re the food safety standards, go the the site below, put in the details and check it out.  All takeaways, restaurants and food shops are regularly inspected.

If you're not happy with what you see when you visit the venue, or have an upset stomach afterwards, notify the authorities.
