Re: Crafty Corner

Wide awake in the middle of the night, so googled your virus stitch Kim. Looks straightforward to start with. Is it DK? How much did you use for your shawl? Of course I am going to finish the blanket first.... I used DK Danny (my go too; its cheap and beautiful colour choices) Would be great in cot...

Aww shame, my parents were old when they had me, I know what's it's like.
I'm very young at heart though, 61 not so bad, but I get it, I do <:)>

Re: Crafty Corner

Lovely lushy, I like the shawl the best, you should wear it and to hell with what other people think. Its warm surprisingly, but its my youngest girl, ( late surprise, only 19) She feels things like this underline her mums age ( makes her feel, dunno bit sad ) Anyhoo, mostly we laugh about this, I ...

Re: Crafty Corner

Love the toys Kim. I started a c2c blanket before Christmas. Whizzed through to half way and needed to learn how to decrease - so put it down over Christmas. It's been a battle of mind over mind, but I picked it up again this week. Just have to put your head down and churn out the stitches. It gets...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Oooooo a dream a dream! I believe any vehicle you are driving (or travelling in but not in charge of!) represents you, and the course of your life. So you’ve crashed, nearly hurt people and inside, all is revealed - the cause is the drink - revealed for all to see. Interesting that the wine inside ...

Re: Just want to share.

I wouldn't myself, but then I think Valentine's night is a disgusting heap of nauseatingly sentimental commercialised shite and have never engaged with it, so probably not the person to ask :lol: . Could you get him something slightly alternative or jokey? :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: Meal 4 one then . Hel...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

Morning just to briefly add that weight gain in sobriety is very common, initially I didn't mind this at all I had gotten very underweight due to drinking rather than eating. I'd say, if am honest i hovver between being One to two stone overweight, largely dependant on my cheese and crackers addicti...

Re: Beyond the 1 Year Milestone

I would go with butter + a little oil to prevent burning. If you're going to have tomatoes, they have to be fresh not tinned, and I halve grill them till charred on the cut side but still firm within. Rachel's quite right, brown sauce is important, although I prefer Stokes to HP. Mild grainy mustar...
