  1. I live near an Army firing range where they regularly practice all day and there is another army base nearby that seem to practice with much larger noisier weapons that can be heard in the distance and no-one ever complains but let off a single firework and half the town hits Facebook to complain. Wish people would just live and let live

    What have you all been making...part two...

    Thanks Plum. Hope you are well. The fancy ones are lovely but I can’t always manage that level of concentration. They are nowhere near as pretty as the lovely quilts on here. Still struggling and have been told that I have a neurological disorder that won’t go away so just have to adjust to a different normal. Spending lots of time resting up and crocheting. Would like to get the stage where I can publish patterns for others to use as a way of keeping busy.

    Thank you both. The last one is my favourite too. It is so soft and snuggly. Will have trouble parting with it

    I’ve been busy making lots more blankets. I’ve a also made a FB page with the hope that it will keep me focused on a single project so I get stuff finished as projects seem to stall at the sewing on stage. If I get enough interest I might even invest in a real blog site with free patterns and stuff. The page as been a challenge as you’ve all seen how rubbish my typing gets when my eyes are bad. Here are a few of the projects that have kept me busy while I’be been away from the forum.

    We are hoping the storms stay away today as we are off to Oxford to see a Neurologist After I had another nasty relapse. Sorry I haven’t been on here much. Life got crazy for a while

    That’s amazing!
  9. Have you tried scouring power like cif or Bar keepers friend to remove that ingrained dirt? The pink stuff could also be worth a try. I have one of the original purple cubes and cleaned it with cif and a scrubbing brush as the start of the year as it had been unused since 2014. It looks like new. It takes a lot of rinsing to get every trace of the cleaner off

    Chicken Memorials

    Lost one of our young Bantams last night. She looked like she was sleeping when I found her. Curled up with her head resting near her wing. She was fine yesterday as she was out and about with the others, looked healthy and even laid an egg RIP Cookie. Just 7 months old

    Handling ex battery hens

    Late night cuddles work best when they are sleepy. Give them a while to settle in first. Also get them used to the idea that you bring treats and they soon come running. An egg cup full of corn late afternoon between the three of them would be plenty. They'll soon learn to peck it from your hands and will eventually crouch when they see you making it easier to scoop them up for cuddle time.

    Help rats!

    Are the worms in the poop alive! They will have dead worms in their droppings for a day or two.What are you using to worm them? Not all wormers are equal Can I suggest you change the title from tats to worms to get the right people to advise?

    Soundproofing a room?

    Can you get the plasterboard removed and add some form of insulation:lagging. It would be redundant in out house as the rest of the household refuse to close the flippin’ door 🤦‍♀️🤬 despite endless nagging from me
