  1. Look how many people are already doing them. I have had small wooden scoops come with bath crystals over twenty years ago. A quick Google search brings all these wooden scoops and spoons up. https://www.google.com/search?q=wooden+scoops+wholesale&rlz=1C1CHBF_en-GBGB807GB807&oq=wooden+scoop&aqs=chrome.3.69i57j0l7.6362j0j15&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  2. Hiya. Not much difference in price between different sellers / suppliers once you have added delivery + VAT, not for horticultural grit or pea gravel.
  3. Bulk bags are usually around 850kg, we had around six of them last year. We tend to buy small horticultural grit, around 5mm. By the time you have added delivery and VAT there isn't much in it unless you are after something unusual. We found these reliable. https://www.gravelmaster.co.uk/search?searchphrase=pea+gravel
  4. Because you need soil in a plant pot, not a nest of ants. I had overwintered some tender plants then split and repotted them in early spring, ready to put them out after the last frost. I had a spare plant I was going to swap with a friend so I decided to check the roots before giving it to them. I knocked it out of the pot to inspect it and it was a mass of ants and eggs, hardly any soil; thats why you need to get rid of them. A few is manageable but if undisturbed they take over. I take it you have never had ants crawl up you and bite / nip or whatever they do?
  5. Get a small ant bait station. We have had to use one as they make homes in my potted plants.
  6. You can already get biodegradable cutlery so make sure someone hasn't already made a scoop. The existing cutlery is made from wood, corn starch or bamboo fibres.
  7. I'm on the borders of Rotherham and Sheffield. I have the pixie cut but my hairdresser is in Brinsworth, its not far from Meadowhall by car. I use Eleanor at ETTO.
  8. I would look on Etsy or Not on the high street or somewhere like that where all the hand made stuff is. I don't know if this lady could make something. https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/KatieBCeramics
  9. No, why would they be? Hairdresser and beautician confirmed all appointments stand once lockdown is over. The ones that missed out just as lockdown started will be first in the queue but i have mine booked every four weeks anyway.
  10. I always book ahead, no pun intended. I have mine booked in right through to September so I'm sorted.
  11. I'm female and have very short hair otherwise its very wavy, curly and uncontrollable. I have had a few snips a it it but its driving me mad. I give my hubby a hair cut on number one on a weekly basis. I wish I was brave enough to have shaved mine a month ago.
  12. See if anything on this link helps: https://www.coeliac.org.uk/information-and-support/living-gluten-free/the-gluten-free-diet/eating-out/gluten-free-takeaways/
  13. You must have seen inefficiency in Hospitals first hand? I can quote you several instances, two of which were very recent. My niece went in for pre op then phoned just before the six weeks were up to ask if they had a date for her op. They told her they had no record of her attending the Hospital or being in the system. She still lives in the Town she was born in. LOL. What a waste of money to go round the loop again. Mum in law had pre op with a rough date in mind for her op. They then kept telling her there were not beds but they set the pre op date with bed space in mind. That was earlier this year for both of them, before all the COVID issue arose.
  14. In the box where you are going to post there is a little down arrow and you can see the profile picture of admin or if you change it you will se your own picture. It appears in a different place on a mobile device to pc.
  15. It would be easier if you put where you are rather than your postcode, I would automatically know where you are talking about and the area. Marks & Spencer do sourdough and some other nice speciality bread in their Meadowhall store. You can park in the car park right by the doors that lead directly into M&S.
  16. I would like to be able to quote for any level of security for IT data cleansing or destruction / reuse / recycling as a comparison. I very much doubt they are getting value for money.
  17. Isn't that a euphemism for compost made from green bin waste? There can be contamination from herbicides. I would buy some soil (could still be contaminated) and mix it with lots of cheap compost. I usually look what compost Gardening Which? recommend as it changes each year. I had the magazine for thirty years but I stopped it at Christmas.
  18. Anyone know how to register with Tesco? My husband went yesterday to shop for us, his mum and my parents. He was allowed one loaf. There was no bread flour either.
  19. They are not the only company refrigerated doing delivery. I cant say how the vans vary but I know someone who used to work for a company who do subcontract work, refrigerated delivery on behalf of the big supermarkets, M&S etc. One such company is cool cube logistics.
  20. They could rent extra vehicles.
  21. If you are a new keeper I would recommend contacting and visiting a breeder, even if its common hybrids you want. I am a poultry keeper of twenty years having kept ducks, geese and chickens. I don't have any for sale as I didn't hatch last year.
  22. I thought passports asked what sex you were, not what gender you identify as, am I wrong? Gender seems to have become a meaning less term to me based on current 'arguments' I keep reading or hearing about. I know some people can be intersex or can be genotypically one thing while phenotypically another or they can be mosaic but it is more objective than subjective.
  23. I disagree. When you go on long haul holidays many people take a shuttle flight down to Gatwick or Heathrow if they live near Sheffield, Rotherham or further north. Many people from Scotland end up flying down. We prefer to drive down and stay overnight either on the way there or back. Taxis are very expensive and coaches take a long time, trains can be a bit hit and miss.
  24. I thought I heard on the news that FlyBe bought too many planes, that was part of the problem. I am aware most airlines lease them.
  25. Your money isn't lost if you buy on your credit card. I bought two holidays (flight only) directly from Thomas Cook. Flight only were not ATOL protected. I got my money back from the credit card company quite quickly, possibly around six weeks or less.
