    Looks good to me, BK. Pleased you've mastered the 'art' of posting pictures on here. Look forward to seeing more of your work... The other reason you need to keep posting is that - if you're like me - you'll forget how you managed to post the photos!!!

    I wouldn't worry about weight if he could dance like this!
  3. Col, I hope they'll have wifi on the alien craft when you've been abducted over the Bermuda Triangle, then you'll be able to tell us all about it! .....

    Col, reading your post reminded me that my mum always referred to our coal shed as 'the coal hole'. I haven't thought about/remembered that for over 60 years!

    Musing on "Making ends meet"......

    Our house in Nottingham had a brick built coal shed which was at the end of a path in the garden. A greenhouse was built on to the side of it. I've just remembered the distinctive smell when dad was growing tomatoes in the greenhouse. He tied up the tomato plants as they grew taller on to string hanging from the roof of the greenhouse. One of philmayfield' s relatives delivered our coal (but I didn't know that then!)

    How's your day?

    I'm continuing with my 'spring cleaning/sorting stuff out, so I've been wallowing in nostalgia once more. I've been slowly reading letters sent to me from my mum and (occasionally) my dad from when I left home in the 1960s. There was a lot I'd forgotten about and I SO wish they were still here so we could read through them together. It was quite difficult to read them because of my eyesight - I think that may be the last time I'll look at them.... Anyway, nearly everything is in bags and labelled so it will make things easier for the kids to look at when the time comes..... (before a lot of it gets chucked in a skip! )

    Mum mixed the butter ration with milk to make it go further when spreading. She also cut off the toe end tops of my sandals so they would last a bit longer before having to buy new ones. (I actually still did this with my daughter's sandals when she was little in the mid 1970s)

    Does everyone automatically get a blurred face? I've seen people with non-blurred faces round here...

    You're right, Brew... I'm sure it is made of the same - or similar - ingredients. The main difference I remember was that Kali had larger crystals and was available in bright colours.
  14. If your fall has caused a flare-up of existing osteo-arthritis in your shoulder joint, it might settle down again in 2 or 3 months. Let's hope so. Poor you - as if you haven't enough to cope with! I hope all will go well when you have your procedure next week xxx
  15. So sorry about your shoulder, Carni. I agree with Brew that exercise causing severe pain probably isn't very good thing! Gentle exercise only up to the point of pain is possibly a better idea. Are they SURE it's arthritis in your shoulder joint or could it just be inflammation of a tendon? Worth a look but obviously talk to your health professional about it
