    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    We dont bother with proper butter, its too hard to spread. Lurpak is ridiculously expensive. On top of that i think its pretty flavourless. I dont know why its so popular. I like flora buttery, its only £1 in asda at the moment.

    Lurpak or any other butter ingredients

    Milk, salt

    I know what I prefer to put in my body

    Spreadables are not butter

    Butter is sold in block and has two ingredients, milk and salt. Spreadables have oils and emulsifiers and all sorts added

    After reading through last night's discussion on butter ....



    For what it's worth, I enjoy real butter - beats spreadables in both health and taste in my opinion.

    I switched back to butter a while back.

    I got fed up with putting all this highly refined stuff into me.


    The spreadable problem can be overcome by not keeping it in the fridge.. I just keep the butter dish on the worktop.

    Ok, sometimes it is still a bit hard to spread so it might need a bit of forward planning!

    I prefer unsalted butter, myself.

    I don't do any butter or spreads at all. Do I miss it? No.

    Busy day at work so I'm watching a program called Sun, Sea and Houses in order to see where I may wish to live in a few years.

    Not only are the main persons brummies with that annoying accent, but one of them is a lump yet talks and acts really rather effeminately. I turned it off.

    I really must become more tolerant again.

    Well I would say Trump and his comment about countries, mostly Countries which have coloured people in them being "shithole Countries". The guy is now not even trying to hide the fact the he is a racist and only likes white people, amazing it is the President of the USA saying these things. It has been interesting to watch news organisations like CNN and the BBC drop there usual rules on saying such things on the air. I see Trump has actually denied saying now even though it was witnessed by many at the meeting and the White House did not deny it at the time, apparently he would be happy with those nice white immigrants from Countries like Norway. Why would someone from a Country like Norway which has free health care want to move to the US
