    just catching up on the posts whilst i grab a quick cuppa :D

    bigbird ....yep the teacakes freeze fine....i just let them cool for about an hour under a tea towel so they don't go crusty, then put 'em in a freezer bag, and bung 'em in the freezer. then i can just take out 1 as and when i need it, and put it on defrost in the m/wave for about 40 seconds. i don't like mine toasted, and they're always lovely and soft :D

    thanks dink1 and herbaholic for the hugs. i'm feeling a lot more positive at the mo. i'm already on the highest dose of my anti-depressants so they can't help me anymore :rolleyes: i think i've got a bit of OCD as well, cos i find i can never sit still for long, i always have to be busy cleaning. my doctor just makes a joke of it, and asks if i can come and do his housework when i'm having a bad day.....not exactly helpful when he treats it like a joke, but there you go.....sorry for going off topic a bit there

    hope the teacakes were a success dink and you've left some for the freezer!! :p

    doesn't look like i'll be going out with the dogs today, they hate the rain as much as me!!

    Afternoon everyone :D

    Im home at last :j .... just wanted to pop in and say a HUGE thankyou for all the PMs i have had off various folks whilst i have been away... it has meant so much..thankyou .... its been a difficult few weeks to say the least but at least neither my mama or sis are suffering now-which is the main thing.

    I have the attention span of a gnat at the moment -but im hopping that getting back into my routine here and on the weightloss thread will soon sort me out ;)

    Im not going to declare a budget for the bit of this month that is left..but i will be popping in and out (whilst trying to catch up with the thread :rotfl: ) then i will be raring to get back into the swing of things as soon as August starts.... have 3 new health/cook books to work through as i do my meal plan -have decided that i need to alter my eating further -hopefully to reduce the risks of suffering as sis did.... will share any reipes i think may be wanted :D
    Still won't be spending much as i have a freezer/cupboards full and have just been out and topped up my fruit n veg...and look what i have fetched out of the garden this morning :T

    Not bad to say it has been left to its own devices for 3 weeks..loads more still out there and once they start ripening -enough tomatoes to feed the town :p
    right - i had better get on..have a great day everyone :D

    Good to see you back MrsM, we've missed you. Hope you and your family are coping.

  • Hi all,
    herbaholic, I love the sound of the rose geranium face water - would you use that like a toner? And any suggestions where I would get the leaves?
