Sorry but unless I go into the city, we don't have a a lot of selection here. I can't exclude supermarkets as we don't have anything else near.!
And I do buy a lot of clothes from George at As*a, I get 10% off cos son works there, and they do have a good range.. Moda for the over 45's.
I don't see the point in paying high St prices when you can get something equally as good for less than half the price. Fred and Florence at Tes*s is very good too.

Do you have discount cards for various shops..?


Anne Report 16 Sep 2010 13:39

We have a mobile hairdresser who visits every 6 weeks, cheaper than the town and much more convenient.

What is your favourite High Street shop [excluding supermarkets] ?

I cant cook roasties !! I fail miserably. I otherwise am a good cook.
I buy Aunt Bessies:)

Do you go to the hairdressers regularly ..?
(Speaks someone that never went for 30 yrs .lol )

Vegetable Lasagne and Moussaka, I'm Vegetarian, these two dishes can be cooked in so many different ways using different veg,pulses, herbs and with Lasagne, different pasta.

What oil do you use to cook your Roast Potatoes?


Anne Report 15 Sep 2010 13:31

It depends but at least once a week, I have an authentic Italian cook book which has some great recipes, I don't make my own pasta but do all the sauces from scratch.

What is your favourite main dish apart from the traditional roast ?

*$parkling $andie* Report 15 Sep 2010 00:28

We grow our own, so when they are in season about 4 /5 times a week.
They taste so much better fresh out of the ground :))

Do you like Pasta.? If so do you have it often.?


Haribo Report 14 Sep 2010 23:11

It would have to Come Dine With Me.

How many times a week do you eat Potatoes?

I like Emmerdale,QI, and a mix of all sorts.There's no decent comedies any more and seems to be an overload of game shows .

If you could appear on any tv programme which would you choose?

*$parkling $andie*

*$parkling $andie* Report 12 Sep 2010 19:31

A local station Red Dragon, or if I loose the signal in the car Real Radio.

What programmes do you prefer to watch on TV.?
Documentaries, drama , films ,soaps or something else.?


Haribo Report 12 Sep 2010 16:13

I like going out for a meal followed by a Concert/Show at my local Theatre. I also enjoy going to see a West End Show about 2 or 3 times a year.

What radio station do you most often listen to?


Anne Report 12 Sep 2010 11:16

No, I prefer to be spontaneous as it's more enjoyable, there are often free tickets for staff where I work, if the Theatres or Cinema aren't fully booked on the night but if its a popular performance I will pay for us to go anyway.

When you go out for the evening where is your favourite place to visit?

*$parkling $andie*

*$parkling $andie* Report 10 Sep 2010 22:26

Yes Betnovate cream which I had on prescription, my face swelled up like a balloon and my eyes were almost closed, frightening !!

Is there a certain evening in the week on which you regularly go out .?


Anne Report 8 Sep 2010 20:07

Yes and sometimes a bruise will appear and I don't recall knocking myself. I have more of a problem with small cuts as I'm allergic to plasters

Have you ever had an allergic reaction to anything ?

*$parkling $andie*

*$parkling $andie* Report 7 Sep 2010 23:38

Haven't used my hand mixer for ages, just because I don't do cakes !

Do you bruise easily..? ....I do

just the fridge freezer which occasionally makes a sort of growling noise.
It unnerved our old dog who used to glare at it and I'm sure she was ready to have a scrap with it a couple of times.
Do you have any appliances/gadgets that you bought a while ago thinking they were brilliant only to have them relegated to the back of a cupboard gathering dust?


AmazingGrace08 Report 7 Sep 2010 04:33

Yes I do...

Does a great job of going off when I forget to deactivate it and walk through the door!!!!

Have you ever had a household appliance start to behave oddly when you least expected it to?

Well not really a problem, but a very unreasonable and awkward one.

She told my husband many yrs ago he was being selfish by replacing our front wall( on it's original foundations ) because it wasn't in line with hers ( which wasn't on it's original foundations cos they wanted to put new gates on it to make a 2nd drive,so her hubby had told us that's why they put the wall up in a straight line rather than curved ours is )

Hubby and her and her one 40yr old son (lives at home ) have never spoken since. But one of my friends , her ex best friend Rita with whom she used to go to chapel says she has fallen out with many 'good' friends and Rita says she has only seen her twice since Graham her husband died in 2003!
Don't need 'friends' like that do you. I speak to her out of politeness !

Do you have a security alarm?... One is going off in our street right now!

no,we were approached by the police to see if we were interested but it never got off the ground.I know less than half a dozen neighbours here now.The other houses have all been bought and rented out by private landlords and the tenants change all the time.Tend to keep myself to myself.

have you ever had a problem neighbour?

Mum had a stroke at 65 followed by a few heart attacks and further strokes.
It was worrying every day. Dad looked after her at home, bless him until she eventually had to go into nursing care.
Initially I was childless and could help him as much as possible, but I didn't drive then:(
My dau was born 5 yrs after mum had her first stroke and I passed my driving test when I was pregnant so altho I had a baby was able to help more.
It was a very worrying 10 yrs.(,that's when she died )-- as it would be be for any one who loved their parents.
My beloved Dad 3 yrs her senior lived until 2 weeks off his 91st birthday.

Do you belong to a neighbourhood watch formally, or do you just keep a neighbourly eye about what is going on ..?
