Re: 10 year olds purse

It's never too late to come in with ideas Munchh :) Well we are all in agreement about the torch, I think the parents can be convinced if I can get her to use it at the right time, like when her mother is carrying stuff down the steps. Some great ideas thanks everyone. Jamesey, I find the grenades t...

Re: 10 year olds purse

Wow a brilliant response Thank you all. I knew that I could rely on you all. To answer the two questions from Badger and Arzosah I don't know how mature your niece (without that sounding like I'm being mean - I'm not!!) Unfortunately not very although quite intelligent book wise she has little to no...

10 year olds purse

Following on from our few days away, my 10 year old niece is now after a purse sized kit to carry around. Her parents think I'm mad so they have to see the logic of every item. So far I've put together: A couple of quid in change List of useful phone numbers A couple of plasters Pencil and paper Rub...

Well it's been a mixed day today, we are having a short break in the lakes for the last couple of days the wife, 2 nieces and myself.

Re: Best/favorite EDC torch?

My EDC is the same as yours Forgecorvus but I took the pocket clips off, I also have a cheap one with the company logo on it on my house keys and a little cheap one the wife picked up while she was out and about on my car keys. What? No I haven't got a thing about torches...............................

Re: Ignorant Sheeple.

The really annoying thing is when it is family that behave like that. I know damn well that if the power was to go off for anything more than a couple of hours (for example). The O.H. would have me running around lending everyone in the family torches, or whatever may be needed. This is on top of he...
