  1. Bought this in Poundland "where else" anyone tried it yet, not a great fan of raspberry so will wait till someone tries it.
  2. No idea !!!! My daughter saw it on Facebook said it reminded her of them both and said I wasn't to tell them.
  3. I have just been disinherited....mum said if I dared say this is her and my aunt !!! It really isn't.
  4. Your mention on Mary Baker cake mixes brought to mind when mum tried one.... tasteless was her comment her first and last box. I never did get to sleep I waited till it started to get light went for the dogs and said "walkies" one was ready the other just looked at me and closed his eyes. I found it quite eerie walking over the beck and down to the harbour never saw a soul no lights anywhere don't think I will do that again.
  5. When I worked as an SNT with older pupils I was often asked to mentor the girls who were pregnant during exams. I agree with you Margie in saying that schools realise whatever the circumstances pupils must be allowed to continue with their education.
  6. I am not sleeping very well at the moment (must be Brexit) LOL. I am watching Boon also have some episodes recorded, The Chase is also on my list why through the night is everything so boring. We could start a group of non sleepers and bore each other to sleep......the time is 2.42 not that I am clock watching.
  7. Hope you manage to find one Beekay, unfortunately I had had no luck (just as I thought). We visited a farm shop who had painted some green with ears of corn others with cows and chickens.
  8. Mine is the three letters of my name reversed. I was supposed to be Megan, my grandmother wanted her name to be carried on but Dad thought she was an interfering old bugger so just registered me as Meg.
  9. I love to read but it has to be a 'real' book I can't get any pleasure from staring at a screen. I was encouraged from a very young age to read, a visit to the library was a treat for me. My grandmother used to say I would read the label from a jam jar !!!.
  10. Brew, definitely more in hope than expectation.
  11. The loss of a pet can be traumatic all of us who have lost a friend will be feeling your pain. A few extra cuddles from your other dog will hopefully give you some comfort.
  12. Why is it that most councils think it's a good idea to demolish beautiful old buildings and replace them with grotesque buildings which then lie empty for years. Newcastle in particular seems to follow this trait then these buildings in turn are demolished to build..........yes you guessed it student accommodation !!
  13. Not been reading many posts lately....but what happened to the "new teacher" who seems to have disappeared !.
  14. Finished ones I think Beekay, might get ideas for my pieces, they are dolls house scale so you can't really get a lot of detail on them. Saying that I have see some lovely work in 12th scale from America.
  15. Beekay, thank you for offering to send your pictures I have sent you my email. I have some small pieces of brass one of which I have tried to paint 'disaster' but will keep trying. Gem
  16. Unfortunately Nonna it's true I am a terrible general cook, I can make lovely pastry but it stops there. I will use oat flour instead of spelt and large biscuits or they will be swallowed whole.
  17. Thank you Nonna all copied and a list of ingredients made, Mum says she hopes they turn out better than my usual offerings.
  18. Nonna, I would appreciate the recipe my greyhound is a fussy eater I think homemade biscuits would be perfect. Hope you don't mind me asking. Gem
  19. Unless I have black lines to colour in I am a rubbish artist, like to see the pictures of your barge wear Beekay.
  20. Sorry should have said only use the peanut butter that is made for dogs, it is low in salt and fat.
  21. This is hot weather treat for your dog but only if they like peanut butter, put in a tray freeze it cut into pieces give them to your "babies" helps cool them down. Apologies if you knew already but it's new to me.
  22. Tut tut FLY was thinking of asking Mum but don't think I'll bother now.
  23. Makes you wonder how they knew that fur coat wearers didn't wear knickers ?
  24. Loved my Grandma's expression 'fur coat and no knickers' I remember asking what she meant, all I got was a change of subject.
  25. I had one of the first skateboards .....a book fixed onto one of the old type metal skates, great going straight down a bank try to turn a corner and you didn't sit down for a while. Not comfortably anyway.
