Hate Tramadol. Made me feel so ill. Will never take it again! horrid stuff!  Sympathy to all who are trying to do without whatever medication or stuff you've been taking. Difficult times but it will get better ((hugs)) xx

Morning all   You grumpy lot 

At least you're not out there in the dark getting your cows in to be milked or walking to school on pavement less country lanes in the dark (do any children walk more than a few hundred yards to school nowadays?).

those of you who aren't at the coal face today - put Radio Three on at 9am. There'll be 12 hours of continuous music - no spoken words at all - a river of music to mark 70 years of R3

Yes you should never use chilli powder to deter animals. It can cause awful burns and ulcerated eye tissue as cats, squirrels, hedgehogs, fieldmice and others try to wipe it from their paws and/ or mouths.

Dove those are probably the same people that think good berries in autumn predict a hard winter.

Cooking potatoes

Posted: 29/10/2016 at 12:06

This sometimes happens if you put potatoes into hot water - put them in cold salted water and bring to the boil.

If that doesn't improve things, cut your potatoes into smaller chunks and steam them in a steamer or covered colander over the saucepan of boiling water.  

Hope that helps.

Enjoy the weekend DD - take advantage of the quiet to do little things just for you ((hugs)) and try not to worry 

I've got the venison cooking gently in the oven and some rough puff pastry resting in the fridge.  Later on I will combine the two 

Interestingly the venison cost about the same as the shin of beef I used for a casserole last week.
