  1. broke my dang toe today

    Ooh, toes and fingers!! Don't they get in the way! I have recently hooked my thumb in the handle of a fire door at work as I opened it to let a group of Managers from head office through, the door swung shut faster than I could move and crushed my thumb (I didn't make a sound, not with half of head office within earshot!!) It's still hurting, I have damaged the tendons and now it keeps partially dislocating, (it's really slowing up the building of my sf) I'll think twice before I open a door for anyone in future!!
  2. Fireworks for regular folks

    We now have fireworks here practically all year round (though it used to be just 5th November and New Year). There is an age restriction for buying them (over 18 only) and shops have to be licensed to sell them, but there is always a huge problem with kids getting hold of them and throwing them at other people/each other! If I had my way there would be a total ban on sales to the general public and it should be organised diplays only that have to be fully licensed!
  3. Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

    It will be a few more weeks before we have any produce, we're only just starting to get warmer weather over here, but we're doing quite well for our first attempt, all the plants are thriving. So far we have tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes, rhubarb, melons, strawberries, peppers, butternut squash, pumpkins, marrows, peas, leeks and carrots. Next year we're planning to add some fruit bushes and trees!

    Saxby All Saints, Lincolnshire. The old outbuildings where we kept our goat and chickens (and had a resident snowy owl in the roof!).

  10. :o I'm currently working in retail (I really don't like it, never have, but at least it's a job!). In the past I've been a nanny, worked in a knicker factory and a food factory, in a post office, trained as a theatre costume designer, did a year as a seamstress in a designer Wedding Dress shop, waitress and yet more retail. I still do some sewing and design dolls and quilts and the occasional costume (mostly ballroom dresses and theatrical stuff).
  11. 6/21/08 Which are you?

    I'm definitely introvert! I much prefer my own space...my son is turning out like me too, quite shy , but once he gets started there's no stopping him, though my daughter is a true extrovert - she hates being on her own, is a singer/dancer/actress and loves being the centre of attention, just like her father!!
  12. Households that have cats and dogs together

    We have to feed ours seperately, our older shih tzu will barge the cat out of the way to steal his dinner and he also does that with the puppy (he lives to eat!!!).
  13. Advice please

    You could make an aisle of hearts using flower heads/petals (use a piece of string to make the shape of each heart, follow round it with a sprinkle of petals and remove the string to leave the heart shape).
  14. shipping costs

    I don't know where some of these sellers get their prices from! The last doll I shipped to the US was a 22" primitive and it cost about £4 (that's around $8). I don't charge for handling as I think that should be part of the service if you offer mail order. Now, if I'm buying mail order I add the shipping cost to the product before I decide if I will buy and if a company tries to add extra shipping I cancel, rather than encouraging them in this practice!! (the only time I paid high shipping was to get the sf, but it was worth it!)
