  1. Hillsborough at one time had 3 wool shops...Matthew's and Fernees facing each other on Middlewood road just below Minto road...and one at the bottom of Dixon Road run by Margaret Hawley.
  2. Harry knows that he is not needed as part of 'the firm'. He is 6th in line to the throne so can afford to say enough...he was originally the spare heir but with the birth of William's children he no longer fulfils that role. The media have been vile to him and Meghan and on top of that he has endured the continued stories about what his mother was supposed to have done or not done. When the whole Prince Andrew debacle erupted I think it was the straw that broke the camels back. I wish him, Meghan and Archie a happy future away from the straight jacket that being a senior royal imposes. His mother was a beautiful woman who died before she got a chance of happiness so he should seize this chance with both hands.
  3. My late partner's pet peeve was what we nicknamed the lane changers waltz where on motorways or approaching roundabouts a driver tries every lane to get that 10 seconds ahead
  4. They would have had to protect him from me too! Crass disrespect and ignorance.
  5. Fireworks can be fun....they can be pretty and enjoyable but the fact is that they are explosives. They have to ban the sale to the general public before areas of cities become no go areas at this time of year due to mindless idiots using them as dangerous weapons. Animals, pets farm animals and wildlife are frightened by them as are vulnerable people e.g. people with autism, PTSD and the elderly. I am not a kill joy but as a child bonfire night was just that...it was one night when families got together for food and fun and fireworks. Now it goes on for weeks and turns areas into virtual war zones.
  6. New nightwear and depending on age a new story book or a DVD and hot chocolate sachets or similar....it is a lovely way for a family to start Christmas
  7. Not a fish person but the mention of Arapaimas made me shudder...I saw them on river monsters and they get huge!
  8. I tried serene um which helped a little but this is Zylkene
  9. October 16th and the fireworks have begun. My dog is terrified of fireworks and round November 5th I only walk him in daylight and I have medication for him for when they start going off. Out for his night walk tonight with 3 weeks to go to bonfire night I had to dash back with him because someone had decided tonight was a good night for fireworks. On hearing the fireworks he panicked and I just thank heavens he is always on a lead. He is now on his bed having been given a dose of his medication to calm him down but getting him out of the house at all in the next few days will be difficult.
  10. Before my partner died we used to go at least once a month often more for a coffee and a cake or a meal in pleasant clean surroundings with lovely staff. It is what it is...it gets very busy hence the need for an extension but it is somewhere that all ages can have a pleasant hour or two.
  11. My son and his partner visited from America last month and we went round the city centre with them....I am Sheffield through and through but found myself embarrassed by the state of my own city. Few buildings with any history, historic buildings being demolished and soulless glass and concrete in their place.
  12. I second Swifties on Abbeydale road....fascinating place just to look round and if they cant help then no one can
