I've got my Mum's old Prestige pressure cooker F'edge. I use it without the lid, just as a big pan. 1987, scalding hot lentil thoup........explosion all over tongue-and-groove kitchen ceiling........that was the last time I used it as a pressure cooker!

Our clothes pulley was £25 about 32 years ago. Bought it in the ironmonger's shop slap bang next to Sid's Cafe in Holmfirth. It's in the boiler room, where the washer lives. Dries everything in 24 hours. Use it practically every day. Brilliant thing.
Glad you got the cream for the eczema, Chey.....but pursue free prescriptions because as a student, you should be entitled to them.
A good strong vindaloo might 'shift' things, Hazel!
Guitar night.....so I'll bid you nighty night now. Beanz fed and tucked up for the night, outdoorsers fed, indoorsers fed.....
Hope Sunny got Paul home, and sending them both my warmest thoughts. Thinking of all our poorlies and wishing them better, soonest.

Hi Pottie.....how are you? Alright, I hope....nice to see you . Yes, oats in a muslin bag....or even tied up in a big cotton hankie or a nylon pop-sock and hung over the hot tap when running the bathwater....very soothing for itchy skin conditions. Certainly worth trying, Chey...if you have a bath.....
Not seen T'bird for a while....hope she had a nice break in the campervan. Missing Debs and Trevor, too.

Thinking of Paul and Sunny today, hoping he gets back home where he needs to be and that they can spend time with each other in the peace of their own home.
Hope the news for your Firstborn isn't as bad as you fear, Yvie.
Hope Chey gets something to sort out this eczema flare-up.
Hope Pauline's feeling ok, and that your T2's exam results aren't as bad as she thinks, Kitty! Mrs. Norris made me smile. They do prefer rain water and mucky puddles to anything that ever came from a tap, don't they?
Good morning LB, Joyce, F'edge, PP, etc........right, I'd better go feed the Beanzter and open the window so he can come and go......sunshine here, at the moment....can it last?

Chey....get up early, ring doc's at 08.30 in the morning and ask for emergency apt and if they say no, demand a doc 'phone call....meanwhile slather some E45 on it if you've got some. You sound in need of hydrocortisone pronto.
Yep, Joyce, greenhouse neighbour......it's quite expensive, this greenhouse!

Oh if only I had the brass neck, Chey.......

Ah well......I've been over, managed to get him in, cleaned out his bowl and fed him, made sure he'd got water in his bowlie, picked him up, gave him a big cuddle.....he swivelled round and practically took my face off.......ouch. He's very unpredictable. But at least he's safely tucked up for the night, so even if he's bored, at least I can sleep.
Maybe I should start charging her..........................

Night Lants, night Runners......night, Billy-Bob.
I appear to be on neighbour's cat duty, again........sans pre-plan. Just a quick txt to say she'd be back on Friday night and could I keep an eye on him......well, no, actually....I'm not here, I'm not getting texts as my provider is 'down', I've dropped dead and am not available....and hey! Maybe I'm going away, too.......
Throw me a ceramic pot and call me a mug.

My sweet peas have blown over, again. Next year I'll shove a couple of bricks in the base of the pot......
Don't have a shredder. We have to burn all our old papers. Good job, Joyce!
Am away, now....watching the original 'Brideshead Revisited'......totally engrossing......

Soz Chey! Just sometimes I think lots of wimmin are a bit daft at 'driving' Chr****mas.......only got themselves to blame for all the kerfuffle....sucked into the hype.
I am allowed to say this, because I AM a woman and I don't believe in defending the indefensible. If I were a man and had said that, I'd have to kill myself, of course. Not that I would.
I think we have been instructed to cease all mention of the upcoming seasonal celebration by Colonel Tiny Tank....and I've not even pushed a vac or passed a duster all week.........

Oh gawd! What have we done NOW??

I'm rubbish at auctions, too. You've gotta be quick! I once bought a gorgeous raspberry red rhododendron at an auction and decapitated it on the way home. The only things I've ever managed to buy are a green tin trunk with a dent in it and a horrible little Utility table for my neighbour to put his telly on.......alas, neighbour now 'gone beyond' but table still doing duty in our shed.......
Buying early for the grandkids for Chr****as is the only way to go! I do think if the festive season was left to men it would die out within a few years. Sorry....was that sexist?

Probably because that's a quiet time of day to do it, Chey. Less traffic on the road, therefore less disruption, therefore a quicker job. S'done now, anyway. Sorted.

Have the roadworks chappies done what they were doing?

I'm not surprised! It'd feed an army, a trifle that size!

Crumbs, Chey!! That's one helluva trifle!!

Chey....our grinder/blender started out white and yep, it turned almost yellow! The motor broke last year so that was that! Bet your grandma's is the same make!
Here's my Grandma's bowl, Lants......
