I have a vision in my head of us all around a fence with little swords having a jolly old time!
Mardatha the weather is rotten here today, I think Scotland is in for a rough few days, the weather is horrible. Just taken DD to work in Glasgow as she has a heavy cold and I felt sorry for her - and I have a new car!
Went to a panel discussion last night with a friend for International Women's Day, very interesting apart from one nutter in the audience who hogged the floor making very political statements. It was good to go to something different and it was free too.
My dad always says 'height for weight, I should be 7' 10" tall!!!

And I've been on the phone to a friend for ages too. Six months since last catch up. I thought I was bad posting on here infrequently, I'm even worse in RL. Good job we can just pick up where we left off.
Going to try and ring another old friend now, not quite so long since last chat, only 3 months.
Having a wardrobe clear out today and also need to inventory the garage freezers. Been tracking what I'm eating as part of the lose/shape up course I'm doing so would be good to be able to plan some healthier meals and know what I've got!
Hope everyone's having a good weekend.

I will get my caravan
Been giving this a bit of thought juliettet and being veggie myself, must admit I had never considered paleo, with its emphasis on protein. Having googled a bit it seems there are people out there doing it and even some vegans trying it :eek:. However, it looks as if it would be a step too far for me and that anyone embarking on a diet like this would have to be very careful to be sure to get all of the their vitamins and minerals each day. Good luck if do try and I for one would be very interested in how you get on with it.
Ivyleaf....We can get rabbits here for about £5. whole one at the butchers , but beings we are well and trully in the coun tryside alot of people shoot them on their own land and will give them to you for the price of a cartridge. ...I personally cant stand the smell of them , absolutely disgusting vile smell.......But each to their own.......

Weve had a super day here again today , had all the doors open and have had a good blow through , I ve been planning to change the flower borders a bit to lesson my work load, so where ive got perennial borders , ive decided to plant some hebe shrubs , at least once they have grown rounded there wont be any weeding to do , I will only have to shape the shrubs twice a year , ive just planted 6 different types of hebes around the pond , they are evergreen and bees and butterflies swarm to them ........Im trying to cut down on the amount of work is involved in the garden ........
Can anyone on here advise me on the calorie content on one scrambled egg please ?, I googled it but one web page said 33 calories each and the other said 70.......
Sorry Mardather that your weather is crap , weve got dafs , primroses out in the garden and the last couple days have been spring like......
All for now Sheila
Whilst we are on about different diets, I got sent a spiraliser to try, this is effectively a giant pencil sharpener style peeler in which carrots, courgettes and veg cut into cylindrical shapes can be prepared. The 'shavings' from the 'sharpener' can be kept in one piece to make vegetable spaghetti for stir fries. I've tried it with carrots and courgettes. Interesting way to make veggies look different on the plate.
The grey squirrel pies appeared on our local news. I was about to post my views at length but they probably wouldn't go down well! It's a good form of pest control in my view; they are, like wild rabbits, a pest in the wrong environment. Better for the pest to be removed, to be eaten and have the skin used too, than for them to die and then be wasted.
