Re: Bollocks to Brexit

I was so confused 😕 after googling, trying to understand why boris was considering raising half a million to make a bong in the shape of Big Ben, and how everyone would get a toke, and anyway, isn't dope still illegal?

Yup, I seem to have missed the news for a day or 2.

Sorry, that's a serious thing? OMG.

Do you pay him £25 or does he pay you?

Re: Movies

At the weekend we saw Current Wars, loud music, mumbled difficult to understand dialogue-disappointing I am sad you didn't enjoy your cinema experience, but I wasn't aware of this, so googled it...producer Harvey Weinstein. So your post made me a little happy. I have put too much money in his pocke...

Re: Movies

Anyone got a clue how they came up with this as the 100th anniversary of cinema? Cinema was well established by 1920, with the first feature film released in 1906, and the oldest surviving cinema opened in 1908. I searched the Wikipedia History of Film, and Movie Theatre pages and neither mentions a...

Re: Meanwhile...

I have to eat something in the morning, cannot start the day without. The working week is usually a mug of tea with cereal and milk thrown in a bowl, not capeable of doing much else first thing. That's the joy of overnight oats. Just mix it in a bowl the day before, and in the morning, get it out o...

Re: Bollocks to Brexit

Ah yes, the conundrum. How, or even if, to chat with total strangers and "friends" that have so gleefully ripped away the opportunities and future that was there for you and this country. I cheer myself up by remembering how much worse things are going get. Actually it's worse than that. She did no...

Re: Intermittent Fasting

F' me! I started recording my weight in October, and partially logging my food. As of this morning I have lost 10.1kg since then. 🤯 And the old belt I got out because my jeans wouldn't stay up are now done up on the tightest hole. That means they are sitting way too high, mum-jeans style, but I am n...

Re: Bollocks to Brexit

My hair has gone grey. That means I keep ending up in discussions with women who also have grey hair. My soul is 17 years old. I am the opposite of an old soul. I am going to have to dye my hair. But I in the meantime, I am talking with old - much older - women. The lady in Richmond waitrose (yeah, ...

Re: Meanwhile...

Perfect. That's why I listed so many options, so you could see the possibilities. It's a great breakfast IMHO, has become very trendy recently ("overnight oats"). I don't like the claggy, wallpaper-paste quality of cooked porridge, so it's nearly the only way I can eat oats. Well, that and ANZAC bis...

Re: Meanwhile...

We bought some museli and it suggested apple juice, neither of us are keen so just wondered if it was necessary. Ah! No, it's not. I keep it really simple, just mix some oatmeal and yoghurt together. Wait at least 10 minutes, or overnight or longer. In the morning I add more yoghurt to get it to th...
