  2. PH I thought it was Millfold we were using but it was ASTON. They work all over the UK. Took about 2 hours all in all. Just watch for the brick dust outside, it went everywhere!! Keep windows and doors closed (obviously) Christian x x x

  4. Hi Kaz I used to live in Farnborough, but moved out here a few months ago. M and D are still around that way. Where do you get all your bulk stuff from?? Many Thanks Christian x x x
  5. Finally made them courtesy of 'Good housekeeping'. 3 large-ish and two small. Next door had a small one yesterday and said it was delish!!! Ihave eaten 1/2 the other and it was nice! Quick question, how long do they keep for??? I'm hoping a fair few weeks or will have to bake more before Christmas . Christian x x x
  6. Another fab (new) book i can recommend is INKHEART and INKSPELL by Cornelia Funke. They are Childrens books, a bit harry Potter ish, but very dark. Perhaps older kids? They are about a Man and his daughter who can 'read' people and things out of books. Sounds a bit strange i know but well worth reading. The 3rd and final book has not been released yet! Waiting patiently!! they are 3 for 2 in Ottakars and Waterstones at the mo Christian x x x
  7. Sorry to hijack your thread Debs but couldn't resist - 'The Faraway Tree is inhabited by people who include Moonface, the elf Silky, the Saucepan Man, Dame Washalot, Mr. Whatsisname and the Angry Pixie. The lands at the top were sometimes extremely unpleasant (the Land of Dame Slap) or sometimes fantastically enjoyable (the Land of Birthdays, the Land of Take-What-You-Want)'. C x x x

  12. we have millfold coming tomorrow to do ours. £230 for a our house (3 bedrooms). The council pay £270 towards it.
