Effusive Egg Layer

Effusive Egg Layer (9/19)



  1. cool, but it's not just non bio washing powder ALL washing powder has irritants in. If she buys up a bulk load of bicarb and uses JUST that in her wash, really makes a difference. Hope she gets better soon B
  2. watch what her clothes are washed in as well, maybe your DIL could try just using bicarb in her machine for little ones clothes, and ditto the porridge oats in a cloth - I do that for me! It's lovely I don't know how old she is, she sounds quite young still so it's difficult really, sunshine (without sunburn) can be beneficial, as can bathing in mineral salts, but those will only treat the external symptoms which is fine if it's topical and down to an intolerance of something external. If it's something resulting from an inner imbalance there are different deocotions and teas that can help, but I wouldn't like to suggest those if she's really tiny. Chamomile oil can be really soothing, but don't put anything herbal etc on her skin if she's really tiny without checking with the dr.... Hope she grows out of it, my eldest had some behind her knees when she was little but luckily it disappeared by itself, I actually don't think anything the dr gave her helped really, just made us think we were doing something about it BeckyBoo
  3. I don't know how old she is but my eldest had repeated urine infections when she was about 4-6 ish and it turned out it was because she was "lazy" about going to the toilet. She would be so busy doing whatever it is 4-6 year old children were doing she couldn't be bothered to go, which made her bladder lazy and her urine built up and became, well, yukky I suppose. I had to make her a sticker chart and really encourage her to go to the loo ALL the time. She grew out of it eventually but it was a real worry then. Proper homemade lemon barley is supposed to be good for some urinary stuff I've just read, worth a go....anyway, hope all your littlies and not so littlies get well soon, my youngest has a croaky throat, the joys of "back to school"! BeckyBoo
  4. Not forgotten you missus, "Ooops, word censored!"ody on here has. Always here if you need a virtual shoulder to cry on, or to rant, or just to talk. Hang in there, still thinking of you BeckyBoo
  5. Terminal 5 is easier than the other terminals because it has it's own slip road in from the M25! The other terminals are off the A4 and can be quite confusing, especially with a million aggressive taxi drivers trying to get in the lane you want to get in!! But terminal 5 is signposted from the M25, has it's own slip road so you can't easily end up at Gatwick or terminal 2!! And yes, parking is a bloomin' rip off - collected a friend from terminal 3 last week and my dad from one of them a month or so ago - £6 for an hour and half or something with my dad!!! BUT, if it's a Sunday, you can always drive to Hatton Cross railway where you can park for NOTHING and catch the shuttle bus in!! I've taken the kids there before (sad I know) because the planes virtually skim the top of your head as they take off and land - you can almost read the menu sheets in first class BeckyBoo
  6. Hello Teabag, I don't know you and I don't get on here as much as I used to so I've only just seen this. But from one human being to another, lots of love. I hope love is keeping you going and the thoughts of everyone here can help to support you and your family at this terrible time. There isn't anything else to say except I am thinking of you and your family, all my love BeckyBoo
  7. it might be a horrible inquisition, but some of what they "allegedly" did isn't just immoral, or a bit below the belt. It's positively criminal. According to the papers (if you can believe anything any of them say) they hacked into Milly Dowlers phone after she went missing and deleted some messages. Her family thought she was still alive because her phone was being used. Presumable the Police ALSO thought she was still alive. Lets hope it didn't have an impact on the investigation..... Murdoch might be 82 and frail, but one of the privileges of being worth £5 billion is that the buck stops with you. No he can't be expected to know every little detail that goes on in his immense corporation, but if there is no one accountable in a position of seniority then he has to take the fall. As for Rebekah Brooks, don't get me started, never mind the convenient "suicide" or non-suspicious death of the former editor, Hoare or whatever his position was...... BeckyBoo
  8. I always thought that Madonna _ La Isla Bonita said - "young girl with eyes like potatoes...." And Kim Wilde sung about "view from a pig" instead of View from a Bridge.... BeckyBoo
  9. That made me laugh out loud!!! I shall be telling that one at work tomorrow BeckyBoo
  10. Why can't they strike on an inset day? We've had notice of inset days since the beginning of the school year and I've taken leave to cover them. Luckily my three are all at one school and there's no disruption there, but I would seriously object to having to take a precious days leave merely to cover for industrial action. We keep being told - "inset days aren't days off you know" - so strike on an inset day then? Or maybe part of the idea IS to inconvenience the customer so that they will put pressure on the government to capitulate? BeckyBoo
  11. (my personal favourite.... ) What's brown and sticky? A stick BeckyBoo
  12. I would LOVE pigs, a friend in Wales has a smallholding and had two BIG pigs which had piglets - she said it was like owning a yacht - you might as well stand there and tear up £50 notes!! So that rules me out then BeckyBoo
  13. Hmmmm, I think I agree with you Ziggy. We ARE by FAR the biggest "pest" that has ever inhabited this planet, if it weren't for us Mother Nature would arrange things as she saw fit and the fittest and most adaptable would survive. That, however, is how we came to be here, in the position we are now in and unfortunately there are a lot of things we now consider "pests" which are really just animals or plants being in a place in which we don't want thm. I'd go ahead with your allotment. Deer are only to be "discouraged" and I think that is fair enough - imagine getting to harvest only to find out they've been in and eaten everything you have sweated and toiled over. A high fence and good gates should solve that and, if there's a reserve next door, then they have plenty of other space to forage. As for rabbits, I am totally opposed on the one hand to culling creatures for our "convenience". BUT. Once again, if you are planting rows of lettuce and cabbages then you really DON'T want rabbits otherwise you might as well not bother. I've never had to explore humane rabbit deterrents, but if there are any and you're on the allotment committee or community, then at least you are there to promote it. Think of it another way, you wouldn't leave your chickens out all day and night free ranging and leave them to take their chances with the fox, you lock them away to protect them. Same with the allottment and deer. Hope you get a "lotty" I've been on a list for over two years - nothing BeckyBoo
  14. I know what you're saying Cinnamon, but taxi drivers don't just lose fares on a regular basis, they are very VERY often victims of assault and robbery themselves, he may well have thought Sadietoo's son had come back to have a go. It doesn't excuse it and yes, technically it could be considered robbery, it was certainly common assault. I wouldn't be a taxi driver on a Friday night or any OTHER night to be honest, there isn't enough money in the world. Hope your son is not too stressed by it, and hope his friends reconsider, they're probably all laughing it off as "one of those drunken pranks"......right up until the consequences catch up with them BeckyBoo
  15. Maybe you SHOULD hatch ostrich - that'd give you something cheerful to focus on!! (I was so excited when I read this, having seen our chicken perched on top of two goose eggs the image was TOO much ) Hope things pick up missus, in the mean time, like you say, you have to laugh otherwise you'd cry BeckyBoo
