  1. Oh, thank you, that will be reason. I am now looking round house with an appraising eye. I have a stack of Action men that are cluttering up the toy room that are next. Do you use the printed labels that eBay ask you to print or do your own postage .
  2. Hi all, having seen some posts about EBay on here I decided to post some unwanted items. Success,both sold. However I got a message from PayPal saying eBay have requested funds be placed on hold for 21 days. Is that the norm, the lower priced item monies were immediate. Is this normal?
  3. We had no eggs for months which was very annoying especially after we got 5 new ex batts. Sadly one died about a month ago and since then from our 10 remaining girls we are getting 6 per day. I am guessing she was an egg eater although we checked for eggshells and damp nesting sawdust and never found any. So back to quiches, buns , frittata and cake.
  4. Reminds me of aChristmas when I heated the M and S gravy pouch,thankfully I don’t like gravy. Everyone saturated their dinner with it and commented on its unusual/ sweet taste. It turned out to be the pouch of salted caramel sauce. They ate on regardless. Glasses are a must after a certain age 😀
  5. That looks yummy RHC, I do love aubergines. I do a lot of veggie recipes much to my OH disgust. I have just made limoncello cake, after finding a bottle of the stuff we brought back from holiday 2 years ago. Just wIting to slice it. I get all my recipes online and this was one of those cup ones. I much prefer grams, I always think end product is not right and blame my conversions.
  6. Thinking lice as red mite tend not to stay on birds, but hide in coop and go on to birds to feed.
  7. 6es was just reading this out to OH, we never bothered checking before bu5 as we were in early twenties when we got our first mortgage am sure we maybe did have it added in and were too naive to notice. Definitely will print some MSE forms and send them out. I think claims finish this year.
  8. When I get Marriages with Flubenvet I just keep going until bag is empty,usually a few days over. 😟 Perhaps I shouldn’t be doing that.
  9. I was feeling pretty smug that we had outsmarted the rats ......until yesterday. A bit like you ajm we moved rabbit hutch and found multiple tunnels. Our wiremeld WIR is on large paving slabs that must be good 18 inches across and still they tunnelled under. OH filled in tunnels with post concrete and another is there this am. Grrrrr,we are going to slab whole run which poor chooks will have no scratch area when in run. Will rethink in better weather wire meld then earth. I am afraid to check them as I have vivid picture which was created in my mind by someone in forum posting about her poor girls having their feet chewed off while roosting. 😓
  10. I have an old one so if I can find it will say renewal. As N Ireland’s residents we can hold either and at one stage I had both. I needed to send one for visa and needed to be out of the country at same time . Mine is due this month so I hope it doesn’t take forever. Although will be interesting travelling with foster children as 3 have British and 1 Irish and we all have Irish. Will customs let us all through in EU queue, I think not.
  11. I have a British passport but am definitely getting an Irish one, they are also slightly cheaper. Very annoying re pet passports as my dogs have theirs. I wonder if we went to vet across border and got them Irish pet passports would they not need titre levels tested?
  12. Also M and S do sculpt and lift leggings or jeggings. It’s quite a feat to pull them on but they keep the muffin top and everything down. My daughter said are you wearing maternity leggings because it looks elasticated. 😃
  13. A bit late to this topic, I guessed it was an American gimmick although I appreciate it is also European tradition to open gifts on Christmas Eve. I think the box is extra presents as there is also Christmas Day presents. We won’t be doing that, it’s enough work with that silly elf on the shelf malarkey ( also American???) As to paper in stockings, a few years ago we bought our ones a type of fair isle stockings. They are a nightmare to pack and unpack with strands of wool everywhere.
  14. I relit on top of old ashes, and put ash that is fallen through in chickens dust bath. I think I read somewhere it was good for suffocating lice, mites etc. Didn’t know that about plants,will definitely have a google.
  15. Congratulations PL.......any names yet. I love hearing baby names. Did you see recent article about airline staff making fun of child whose first name was Abcde pronounced Ab-city.
  16. Aw, that’s lovely Cats Tails. I was just thinking of my mum today. Christmas as you get older changes, too many empty seats.
  17. Just back from cinema,loved the KFC Christmas ad 😀🐓
  18. I wonder what the user statistics are since the upgrade. I still hanker after the old layout and I am fairly new to Forum. I don’t think there as many posts. I loved browsing in all things nice and just preferred the whole feel of the community. What does anyone else think?
  19. Wish I could do the clicky link business. The best I have seen is the tear jerking £50 Christmas ad. Big retails take note, you don’t need to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds. If you google it,it will come up.
  20. Ha Andy did you have decent boxers? 😀 When we were in baths there were lots of young lads, looked like stag dos in what were definitely underwear. Obviously going commando on way home. Also you can hire swimsuits in baths. Though not sure I would fancy that.
  21. Hi Harrison OH. I have 4 implants in different parts of my mouth. All at different times. Two settled in perfectly and feel no different to my own teeth. One in my lower jaw never really settled, the gum never settled and a little pocket/ fissure developed which was always getting infected. I was back and forth to dentist very often. In the end I left that dentist,for other reasons, my new dentist didn’t do implants and referred me on. The implant specialist took either MRI or CT scan and said the implant should have been imbedded in a different spot and would never settle. Result removal of implant,6 months to allow gum to heal. Implant inserted and allowed to settle for 3 months before crown fitting and to be honest that one is still painful off and on. Therefore for all the fuss I have had I would not travel to Budapest as you may not get follow up care here. I also would not do a remove tooth,stick in the implant at the same time which I know often happens as that I think is why that one went wrong. Though I am sure there are lots of people that have had no problem. I do know chap who went to Budapest and got tooth veneers at fraction of cost here.
  22. Yes I am loving it Andy and will definitely come back in the spring with my OH.
  23. Budapest lovely,atmosphere good and great selection of food. Had a lovely day yesterday on walking tour, then went to the Holocaust museum. In the evening we did a Danube river dinner cruise. Today we went to the thermal baths and markets. The Christmas lights are lovely.
  24. Loving all the pics. Did you escape the deli belly RHC. All of my group got it one by one. Thankfully I got it when I was almost home. One poor girl spent the whole of a 4 hour train journey on the European loo.
