    I might have a bit of a curmudge though.  To make room for a new mobile classroom in the grounds of the local FE college, someone has seen fit to fell the mature Liriodendron which I was admiring in the spring.   :s

    That's a bummer @Liriodendron
    There's an item on the morning news prog just now about wet wipes. How are there still folk who don't understand about not putting them down the loo? The info has been around for years about them. 
    Since most of them are so indestructible, they should try using them to fill potholes.  :D
    The guy's talking about how the blockages mean sewage backing up, potentially into people's homes.
    If only they could arrange for it to back up into the homes of the ones who flush them down the loo. Karma....  ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Ergates,I had forgotten about the pans boiling over on the gas,plus I found the flames burned the sauce pan handles. I had bought a set of sauce pans some years ago with a 25 year guarantee. Had been looking for some years for a pan just big enough to fry one egg. Last week while the grandkids were here,went into Town with my grandaughter to get wellies, went into a certain discount mainly clothing store,(darent mention the name on here!) She loves crepes,(other granny has an aga,NOT JEALOUS) she came across an iddy biddy iron frying pan just the right size. Message to self, this should be on the RTBC.Fairy,we watch programs about the London Underground, sewers,seen the disgusting "fat Burgs". A few years ago,our loo became blocked. The manhole is under the conservatory floor,traced to the numpty neighbours that you know about,fat and a cloth of some kind, down their manhole.The first 4 properties share a drainage system

    You still have a grandmother!   One of mine died when I was 6 weeks old, the other one, I did know but was too far away to just pop in to see her.

    Haha,Lyn,that was the pre-empt. I changed it quickly. It IS amazing considering I'm 71.

    Thank goodness you explained it. I’m easily confused before I’ve had my second coffee ☕️ ☕️

    Some time the pre empt is handy, sometimes it tells fibs!
