SUPER CHICKEN!!! (16/19)



  1. Just had to reply to this thread All alive & well here. I do lurk from time to time but like with everyone else, my path has taken a different direction - working, busy Mummy to two boisterous fur-kids, travelling the country in our campervan. The help 6 years ago when we first joined from the forum was invaluable, made some great friends & I still do think this forum is very friendly & welcoming compared to others. I was a mod for just over a year or so and what a task it is, really opens your eyes what goes on behind the scenes - I couldn't keep up with it all in the end. So to those mods who still do it I applaud you!
  2. Like Cinnamon - big make up fan here. By far the best product I have ever used (my desert island product) is YSL Touché Éclat pen concealer. It's not a foundation but is fantastic at hiding dark circles and highlighting your face. When I first wore it my Sister said I looked younger (she didn't know I was wearing it). It is expensive but mine lasted me way over 12 months if you use it wisely. I use Max Factor foundation and mascara. Good stuff.
  3. Check out UKcampsite. They have a search facility. Nearest we've camped to the Helford River is near Porthscatho. Campsite called Trethem Mill (St Mawes area).
  4. I get about ten ear infections a year (due to psoriasis in the ear canal) and have Otomize ear spray on repeat prescription, so any little niggles I am in straight away with the spray to get onto the infection pronto. I would definitely go to the doctor, you have my sympathies. Ear ache is horrible.
  5. Oh, Sparkysmum - do you want my girls to come and give your girls a pep talk? Show them how it's done?! I think you are all right - it's the mild weather. Oh well, I best make the most of it then.
  6. You have my sympathies SC. Get well soon! x I have been suffering from something similar, had flu type bug (left me bedbound for days) in the first week of December, I had 3 days off work, went back to work for one day and then was off another week. Doctor said I had "infected airways, tonsilitis & ear infection" post the flu bug, 2 weeks of antibiotics and I am still suffering now - cannot shift the mucus off chest or a barking cough. I am convinced it's the weather's fault - we need a cold snap pronto!!!
  7. Awful ANH. Thank goodness no-one was there. Hope it's sorted really quickly for you all. x
  8. I never watch BB. Haven't watched it since Jade Goody was in it but this one is looking good purely for the barrel s"Ooops, word censored!"ing z listers they have put in it. I am sure that horrible WAG Nicola Mclean will stir up some trouble as she is acid tongued. The only decent ones in there are: Natalie Cassidy (seems warm & natural), Denise Welch (down to earth, normal!) and Michael Masden (who was once an amazing actor what happened?! Reservior Dogs, Species, Thelma & Louise - he must wonder what planet he is on).
  9. Great news!!!! If you like Cockers, why not go for one Christian? Just don't get the working strain type. The "show" ones are much more placid. A friend has a Cavalier KC and she is very quiet and docile and just the right size if you want a small dog. As you know I am dog mad and love all dogs but a MIL has a Jack Russell, and lets just say that dog would try the patience of a saint . Terriers make up for their size in personality and determination so if you are looking for a challenge get a "terror" but if you want a dog that behaves and listens to you - don't get one!! I shall be watching this thread with anticipated interest. *big grin*
  10. All my purebreeds are laying every day which is very odd . Normally they are broody all summer and then have an extended holiday from October to March. I have never known a Winter like it in 6 years of keeping hens. Is this normal? Anyone else getting this?
  11. Nothing sucks like a Dyson IMO. I have an animal upright downstairs (we have 2 very hairy dogs) and the smaller Dyson "city" which is very lightweight upstairs. The downside with the Dyson is the weight of them. I used to clean holiday cottages with a Henry and by far it is the worst vacuum I have ever used, after 4 hours of hoovering cottages I felt like tossing the thing out the cottage into the nearby lake!
  12. I would be happy to see James off the show. I can't stand him. Ola is ok though, it's a shame his antics affect her. The worrying thing is with Aleesha gone, Emma Bunton from DOI is in need of employment and that would really put me off the show! I really really want a proper judge to fill Aleesha's place and Karen would be a superb addition. Just hope the BBC listen to the fans.
  13. I am surprised you could get a car on finance at 80 (not meaning to be ageist) but yes I agree the salesman does need a stern talking too! You carry on ranting, it's good to let off steam!
  14. YES! Result! Aleesha has quit SCD to join Britain's Got Talent. This news has made my day!
  15. My Mum has the Fiat Doblo - very roomy in the back with sliding doors. (Hers is red and we call it the postman pat van ) I would imagine it is cheap to run as otherwise my Mum wouldn't have it. Another similar one to the Fiat is the Renault Kangoo - also plenty of room in the back. I like these car/van type cars with sliding doors, come in very handy if you have an eglu to get in the back!
