Re: What are we watching?

You’re right about the editing Hooped, there’s be no point to the programme if they were all nice, polite young people with good jobs and loving families would there?

Hooped, does that mean we have to swallow the toothpaste rather than spitting it out?

Re: Chat Thread

We’ve always had a water meter, in Reading and now here. We save our washing up and do it all after dinner in the evening, it’s only cereal dishes and cups so it’s not worth just doing that. Then the water is kept to be used on the garden. I don’t use my tumble drier now but when I did I even used t...

Re: Chat Thread

I decided to be very careful with water usage so I stopped running the tap while cleaning my teeth and just dipped my toothbrush into a glass of water, then I read about the huge salaries paid to the bosses of water companies and how much is wasted because they’re not doing the necessary maintenance...

Re: Chat Thread

My parents took me to WW when I was 4, we stayed in a caravan, there were earwigs in the caravan and I got a throat infection and spent most of the time in bed sucking Tyrosets and watching the earwigs worried they’d fall on me. Never been since.

I dislike books that are badly edited with typos and repetitions, I sometimes wonder whether they have proof readers any more.

Re: Chat Thread

As a little Forumite I lived in a newsagents run by my parents so I had access to all the comics, often one of them would have a free gift taped to the front, things like the ‘black’ soap was one of them. 3D glasses was another.

Yes I’ve done all that, it’s as bad on vinyl flooring too. One day we’ll have to take it to someone to see if it can be repaired, in the meantime I have a choice of a Vax or a Henry but I prefer the Panasonic.
