Re: What preps for next year ?

Def want to improve the veg garden, grow more fruit, want chickens, want to menu plan and cut down food costs & waste. Need to take more exercise (when the snow goes away) and get fitter. :mrgreen:

Re: Calor Bottles

Mine is £30 delivered for the 19kg one - but next time I'm getting the 47kg size, much better value plus it will last me around 8months.

I do a small loaf on the timer in the BM every night - then we wake up to a lovely smell of new bread & a nice fresh loaf every day. :mrgreen:

Re: Dream Home/Retreat/BOL

...But what when things get tougher, and the inhabitants decide to drive out the incomers...? Like the islanders on Fair Isle and the sailors from the Spanish armada.. Would apply to NZ as well as Scotland.

I'll tell you - if this is Lanarkshire then I believe anything of the cops there. Hard-faced sods who wouldnt give you a drink of water if you were dying.
