  1. What an awful thing to happen, would agree it is always best to let the phone, handbag etc go as they are replaceable and you aren't. Am glad you are ok and hope you get your new phone sorted quickly.
  2. Hi, Not sure how to do the linky thing but here is the apple page (sorry will need to copy and paste it) showing you the different types of iPod and comparing them to each other. http://www.apple.com/uk/ipod/compare-ipod-models/ If you do go for an iPod (I love mine ) I wouldn't go for the shuffle as it lacks a screen to go through the different songs you have. You can add your son's iPod to your current iTunes account so you can share music or you can create a separate account for your son then link it to your current account so you can share music between accounts I do this as we have separate laptops though I am not sure it would work if you are using the same computer as both accounts need to be open to share music and guessing as he is 7 he doesn't have his own computer (though now a days I could be wrong, I have heard some primary school children do have their own laptops for home work etc though my son is still a preschooler so not sure.
  3. I agree Terry Pratchett's discworld novels are great and could be worth a go to get him interested in books. The library should have them to save you spending money if he doesn't like them.
  4. Having just read over my last post I am not sure if omega eggs in the supermarket would be free range or not I only buy free range Hope to have my own some day
  5. Here's one of the bits I read about eggs I guess the problem about the internet is anyone can write anything so it is difficult to know what to believe... Omega-3 Eggs In traditional human diets eggs were a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Traditionally, hens were allowed to range free and peck on grasses, plants, and bugs in the soil. When hens had an adequate level of bugs and Omega-3 rich forage in their diets, they produced eggs with Omega-3 fatty acids as well. Most hens today live in hen houses to protect them from predators or in cages of commercial egg producers. Hens with these industrial lifestyles will not produce eggs with notable levels of Omega-3 fatty acids. An egg industry flier shows us that a commercial egg will have only about 40 milligrams of Omega-3 fatty acids per egg. But the eggs you find in the supermarket labeled “Omega-3 enriched” (or something along those lines) is a new type of egg. Hens producing these eggs live in the commercial operation but they receive flaxseed (or occasionally a fish-based supplement) as part of their daily ration. Hens typically receive a diet of about 10% flaxseed. An egg from a hen on such a diet will typically contain over 200 milligrams of Omega-3 fatty acids, including about 75 milligrams of DHA. The ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids will be about 2 to 1 – approaching the dietary ideal of 1 to 1. Commercial eggs have a ratio of about 20 to 1. I have also read that these omega ratios are wrong
  6. Hi does he use it in cooking or take it like a supplement by the spoonful? Yes it is amazing how many people automatically assume you must be lacking in something if you don't eat meat. Some people act like I must be a bad mum if I don't feed my son meat. I have to say I am very fussy about his diet and making sure he gets fed fresh healthy home cooked meals and that he is getting all the nutrition he needs but the comments still worry me.
  7. Hi, thanks for the responses and the link They look better than the supplements I'm taking so will be heading off to boots. My little one currently has milk with added omega 3 I'm just thinking ahead for when he is off the milk as the supplements all seem to only be suitable for over 12 year olds I am convinced you can have a very healthy diet and not eat meat or fish and am pretty happy that we get everything we need from our diet my only concern is the omega 3... Though I have read if you feed your chickens flaxseed they produce omega rich eggs, though I am not sure how true that is...?
  8. Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post this... I was wondering how the vegetarians on here make sure they are getting enough omega 3 ?
  9. Hope you get a better quote this time. Look forward to seeing pics of your new Kitchen

  11. I didn't even know you could change it I am trying the blue now and it is working for me
  12. Hi I have just had a look at their website and the Kitchens look amazing. I see they provide you with a painting guide and DVD. Did you receive this and do you think it was a good enough guide to enable you to paint the kitchen yourself?
  13. I am going off to the shops too Just checked my powder does have bleaching agents. I do wash clothes at 30 though so will up that to 40 now. Bedding and towels get washed hotter and tea towels get 95 Can't seem to win, be good to the environment or have hygienic clothes
  14. Thanks for the advice, I will make a bit less than the recipe says I still haven't tried it yet but will be giving it a go at the weekend as a practice run.
  15. Thanks for the suggestion, hadn't considered Veggie Haggis for Christmas I'm getting very excited about Christmas now, the post office still didn't have last post days for Christmas yesterday but I was told that the last post to Australia and similar would probably be end of October.
  16. It really is. Only problem I have with Lakeland is the amount I spend there lol
  17. Lakeland have already replied with the recipe
