With all the dust, I can see why you may want to go grey, but I think white all the way.. It just looks cleaner and neater..and it goes well with the yellow brick... I walked up the road recently and someone had painted their doorframe and windowsill's a mustard cream colour- my goodness it looked s...

They are really good in the british weather...You can use covers, but even if you d...

Re: HELP- hair falling out in clumps!

I can imagine how you are feeling... Check your thyroid and other hormone levels.. Should you be on HRT or a different HRT? (Sorry not sure of your age?) You could look at Scalp Micro-pigmentation - many of these procedures have come on a long way..The practitioner can paint dark fine hairs onto you...

Re: Puppy Prep!

No replies?? Here's a quick brain dump - hope it helps: Buy a crate and cover it with a blanket- crates are safe places for dogs and they need a place they can relax and sleep Be consistent with your training, the whole family needs to be on board Don't over handle the pup - e.g especially if you ha...

Re: Sell your home cooked food on Humbsum

Great idea! I am not a chef but a potential customer! I think your website needs a section on "how it works" or FAQs?

I would have to say cash all the way.. And a week's wage is generous if she works full time for you, but if it's part time, I would up the amount to perhaps 2 week's pay..  Not sure how often your cleaner comes, but I would definitely give her as much as you can afford, as often they are struggling ...
