Re: Favourite books?

I read cookery books, I know it's sad but I love looking through cookery books. I do a lot of cooking, never make puddings or sweets but I must have more than a hundred cookery books. My OH dreads me going in to Tesco because they have lots of cookery books.

Re: Sometimes it pays to wait.

We booked a holiday cottage for next September with the owner of the cottage (we stayed there last September) She put the price up by £15 from this year. We liked it so much we booked.

We are lucky that we have trees surrounding out whole allotment and we have found over 15 years we have been there that we are pretty well protected from the wind from the west. But when the wind from the east starts we are in bi...

Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

Geoff, we went for a walk this morning and the wind actually stopped us in our tracks. Then the rain came and it has been really dreadful. And our weather station battery gave up and we don't have a spare. So the interesting weather that we are having at the moment won't be registered. :x

Re: Over 60's hair cut rate:)

PP I have never looked at anything at all before so today was a bit of a suprise. I just thought that because I can't have my Pension until 2018 I can't claim anything else so I will now look into other stuff.
