    The spiderlings are back. I have decided to contact my housing association about these spiderlings. I think they are dangerous and don’t want them infesting my flat. They could spread if they’re allowed to. I shall do this tonight.

    Thank you for your reply, SpinningJen.

  • Kat: I replied to this  in another thread. It does take a certain amount of foot strength to walk in stiletto heels. You can build this strength by walking around  barefoot but on tippytoes This will strengthen your arches. Then of course try lower heels and gradually work your way taller. Think of the wonderful shoe wardrobe you will build in t…[Read more]

  • as I said we don’t have Halloween but we do have Saint Martin on the 11th of November when children come to the door with their lanterns and sing.

    That is when we hand out candy or treats,  this year I won’t be opening the door. Most children walk with their parents so the risk is too high, but if children are going to walk I am going to put a…[Read more]

  • I haven’t worn a Halloween costume for a few years now.  I used to dress up (the dogs, too) when handing out candy to trick-or-treaters.

    Although they would shake off their headwear as soon as they heard the children outside, the dogs happily greeted them at the door, tails wagging furiously and hats dangling from their necks.  LOL

    Up until l…[Read more]

    They can get a bit ‘over the top’ if left to their own devices. I tend to leave them but the webs can ge irritating. I think the big ones sort out the little though and they don’t seem to build webs.

    I have had similar earlier in the year around my ankles only. I put it down to wearing turned down socks over the top of my leggings when I go out walking chafing and obstructing the blood supply. I did not go to the doctor but no cream seemed to make any difference. I stopped wearing the socks, for the most part, and wore skirts with bare legs…[Read more]

  • I like witchcraft and the occult too although don’t really celebrate Halloween. I think it was less celebrated when I was little so is less inground in my memory. Perhaps only really The Great Pumpkin film with Charlie Brown, Yes it really reminds me more of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, or even The Addams Family.

  • Well done from me too 🙂

    My start in maths was very hit and miss and I was put into the lower set at school but then managed to find things fairly easy. I think it was the change in work and approach. I have ended up with a technical background with fairly advanced maths but it was not always easy. On one course though a friend relaxed me no end…[Read more]
