Oh my!
limes are a staple in my house, I get a net of 5 limes for £1.20 or so, or 30p each in Tesco...........not sure what that is in $, but wayyyyyy cheaper than what you have to pay.

This isn't what you want to hear, but I'm doing "meatless March".....................so forgetting to defrost is not a problem, you just get more creative with the rest of the meal. Having said that I am sooooo looking forward to some roast lamb in April!

I don't own a dog, but I regularly look after a grande dame of a pure bred whippet, nearly 15, doesn't suffer fools and loves me!

I do feel blessed Miami Elaine, like when a child takes your hand

Vesta beef curry and chow mein. It was all dried, you added water and you got to fry the crunchy noodles for the chow mein.............my mum cooked from scratch for most meals and we had wonderful food, (West Indian house.....fried chickien, rice and peas, as well as spag bol etc), but the excitement from me and my 4 brothers and sisters when the Vesta box came out.....................simple pleasures!

This is slighlty off the track, but why don't you see many Black American women with cropped hair, she looks fantastic.
I'm of West Indian descent and have only ever had really short hair, getting a number 2 clipper cut always makes me feel perky!

Happy Christmas from the Highlands of Scotland

years ago when I shared a bedroom with my 2 sisters we would kick the end of the bed to see if the pillow cases were full. This was usually 3 o'clock in the morning, so there was lots of excited whispering and giggling. We would dig down to the bottom of the pillowcase to find the coxes orange pippen apples, hazelnuts and chocolate money, then when we heard movement from my parents bedroom we would pull our presents downstairs.
We would open pillow case presents and under the tree presents in with our brothers and parents before breakfast.

Nowadays,we open one present in the morning, (usually requested by me) with the rest, taking it in turns, after lunch/dinner.................I swear I could live until I was 101 and I'd still get sooooooo excited about opening up a present
