Gary -  I can see Bob Flowerdew really going for your idea, but he wouldn't bother with compost.

bjay, I'll have a good look through my books before I let them go, but I don't think I've got any 1st editions I really just need the space and to declutter. I've got enough drinking glasses of all type to set up a pub, where have they all come from. Things have really got out of hand, I've got tablecloths for the oval table we got rid of a few years ago and they no longer fit my larger table.

.No, I've just got to bite the bullet and get rid of them.I WILL be strong.

Geoff. I use polystyrene in the bottom of large pots, it helps to fill some space with weight, but I expect you know that.

We cleared our loft out a couple of years ago before  the ceiling had chance to fall in, and said we would not let it get as bad again, well.......

Geoff, you made me blush, could do with more clothes on! The house is freezing, door and windows open to help dry out plaster. I have now got to get rid of loads of books. Will be going to charity shop in near future.

What's for tea?

Variety is the spice of life so they say. I like to read about how people cook. It gives you different ideas, so if you feel like starting a new thread Frank, go ahead, though I can't see anything wrong with what is posted here. I'll visit both.


Wartime Farm

Well that's it then, the end of the Wartime Farm series.

Funnily enough although it tended to be a bit weak in places, I shall miss it.

Didn't fancy that potato pie, we really are very luck today to have anything in the food line we fancy provided we have the money to pay for it. I was only 2 when the war ended but can remember rationing, although I never remember going without anything. We always seem to have plenty to eat, my mother was obviously a good manager, but then it's like they say, what you've never had you've never missed.

I have still got my dentity card along with quite a lot of bits and bobs from that time that my mother kept.

Do you think they have gone as far as they can go with this type of programme or will they come up with a spin off.? We will have to wait and see

I've just taken a load of old videos to the tip, it's just no worth the effort of trying to get rid of them. Still holding on to Starwars, though, don't know why, just can't bare to part with them. I think we still have a video player somewhere in the loft

I don't eny you the boiler job Jo. We are upsidedown at the moment, you just don't know what to do with everything, but it will be worth it when it's done, so I keep telling myself.

I won't be cooking tea this evening, we are having fish and chips from the chippie.( needs must, we are having some plastering done)

I buy whatever I can from the independent shops, but use supermarkets as well especially if they have things that are close to their sell by date. It doesn't matter how much money you have it makes sense to buy good quality at the lowest price. Well that's what I was taught. Surely there is room for everyones opinion?

Sorry if anyone is offended


What's the weather like in your area?

Good morning folk.

Hope all are well

The plasterer arrived prompt at 8 this morning, so it's all go at the moment, should be finished in one day. We have to go out the front door, round the front and in the back door to get to the kitchen, good job it isn't raining, but at least we have got a small sitting room to use.

There is fungi appearing all over our garden at the moment, some from the compost used to pot up plants before planting out and some from wood we have used to edge veg garden beds. They are all different and interesting in their own way.

I seems a bit quiet here today, where is everyone? are you still in bed Geoff

See you all later, cyberly speaking...

We have got our polling cards too. There is a website you can look at.

Another government initiative to complicate matters now doubt.

Just been to look for polling cards, but as we are upside down decorating, can't find them
