There should be more of that in our media
Reality check for the sheeple please :ohmy:
There will be even less of it in mainstream media once Fairfax and News Ltd merge.
RW I thought the same thing about the braised steak and onions, it was mainly gravy without much substance at all. It tasted ok but I won’t buy it again.
Will try the other ones soon.
Name them and shame them I say.
I too didn’t go in this swap as I had too much on and wasn’t sure I could get it organised in a respectable time.
The other swaps I have joined have been wonderful. I must have been one of the lucky ones that didn’t have to wait too long.
Neata I would love to send you something to make up for your MIA swap, please pm me.
I made a wheat bag for my DIL this afternoon with some lavender from my garden. It smells divine.
I think I will make a few more for chrissy presents.:D
How’s your DH going Michelle? I hope it’s not too serious…although pneumonia always is.

I bought some of…[Read more]
It has been bought out by the Bowden family and will be turned into a motor museum. The developers won’t get their hands on it now and the grounds are going to be restored.
Oh Luvin you poor thing, you really have been through the works. I can only send you :hug: and hope you start feeling better very soon.
I have to agree with Alokin and say ditch the vegan diet, it sounds like your body is starving for some nutrition. I recently bought myself a cold press juicer and have never felt better since filling up on lots…[Read more]

Also heartburn tablets have been added to the list.

My SIL works in a coal mine and was told last week that if the aussie dollar hits $1.05 they will shut the mine down and they will all be out of work. They told him they are currently losing about $5 million a week.:confused:
There’s a few people now who’ve said their local coles doesn’t have these tin in stock.
I have tried two Coles without success and I can’t even find them in their online shop.:shrug:
I might get one although having 3 batteries in it makes me wonder how often the batteries would need to replace?
According to the instructions the batteries last about 2 years and are easily replaced.
I bought one of these solar lamps from Ikea the other day and am surprised by how good they are.
Just leave it near a window during the day and get 3 hours of lamp light at night. They give off enough light to read or cook by.
I thought they were good value for $20.
One of the things that web site Survival mom said was to grow roses and I thought WHY but when I reread the piece you grow them very close together to form a barrier but you don’t cut it back
Or if your in the sub-tropics grow bougainvillea, it is prolific, takes no maintenance and no-one is getting through that prickly little sucker.;)
WOW you guys!! Thanks for so much encouragement and advice, I really appreciate it.
I am going to take it easy for the next couple of weeks and write some sort of time plan for jobs I want to finish.
My veg garden has been pretty neglected lately and really needs completely reorganising. I started painting my back fence 3 years ago and got half…[Read more]

It took me four years to get used to it… only now finding my feet with it all
I’m glad you said that because if…[Read more]
(chips being one of the three essential human nutrients)
I think one of the things I find daunting is how to structure my days?
I think, like you say, I am so used to being busy, planning my life around work that I am worried I will fritter my time away.
I think I need a plan.;)
I am absolutely loving this book. It is so much more than I expected it to be. Hoping to find some answers to a few questions I have been asking myself lately.
Thanks for the recommendation Sonya.:tup:
