  1. Anyone know where to get simit - those Turkish bagels? Ozmen got us addicted then stopped carrying them.
  2. Second for this. Chris doesn't have a garage, he does the work in your driveway. Been using him for years. If you prefer a garage, https://www.carrepairsheffield.co.uk has a good reputtion. John Bee on Abbeydale Road.
  3. If you want a handmade cake, I can recommend https://en-gb.facebook.com/ibakeabit/ Terriffic custom designs, and she really listens to what you want.
  4. Help! Newbie gardener here, wants fresh tomatoes in winter. Anyone have experience they can share? Googled around but all the advice is either for people who have a lot more experience than me, or for people who want to grow cannabis. 😂 Thanks!
  5. THANK YOU. You all are pick of the litter.
  6. Annie's right about this. For anyone who has shoulder problems that can be helped with physio, try Val at City Physio. She has deep academic knowledge, and is also very pleasant to work with.
  7. Is there anyone in Sheffield who can repair/restore broken ceramics?
  8. Has anyone found a good firm to do Crittall windows? I see KJA from Barnsley pop up on Google, has anyone used them?
  9. My dentist open too. Had a filling come out, and they got dressed up in these space suits to do the work. With the space suits and the bright lights, it's good if you want to pretend you're being beamed up to a UFO for some probing.
  10. And sedith wins Sheffield Forum today 🤣
  11. While we're on the topic of libraries, just wanted to say thanks to the staff who, although I think they were on furlough, still helped me set up an online account so I could read ebooks and listen to audio books. Great customer service, efficient and friendly. And nothing like laughing along with a Bill Bryson book to aid mental health. You librarians are the best.
  12. Basset One, thanks for pointing out the reality of collateral damage. Plus it makes people afraid to go out, and empty streets aren't safe. One more thought, and I know this might be an unpopular opinion, but I'd rather no one was getting shot, not even the drug dealers. They all have parents and loved ones and they are human beings too. Not saying anything more than we shouldn't celebrate these deaths, although to be fair, I don't think that's what anyone here is saying.
  13. When we moved to Sheffield in the 90s, his was the only shop we could find "exotic" ingredients like fresh chillies. Lovely man. Shop is now an upscale boozer. How things change!
  14. For me, it was almost a ten years ago. I was randomly Googling about different neighbourhoods we were thinking about moving to and noticed a thread about the Woodseats Bridge. The thread had already been running for four years, but it was getting exciting as they were about to lift the new prefab bridge into place. It was a huge mix of whinging, traffic nerds, engineering expertise, and the usual amount of taking the ****. It was love at first sight. Highlights Bus Man giving advice on how it affected bus routes and posting photos Andy C providing expert commentary Jeffery Shaw saying, when the bridge was halfway completed "Woodseats Road- the unabridged version?" muddycoffee giving regular eyewitness updates Final status: 21 pages. 5 years, 4 months, 26 days Geoff and Mods: Thanks for a great forum, long may it wave.
  15. Brilliant! But don't underestimate the value of smug satisfaction.
  16. Thank you all! A neighbour just told me St Vincent's is open and they are taking LPs.
  17. Doing a clearout, figure it's finally time to get rid of 100+ old vinyl LP albums. Do I just put them in the black bin (after recycling the cardboard covers)? Or is there a charity shop that would take them? Anyone else go through this? Feels terrible getting rid of these old friends, but truth is I don't think I'll ever play them again.
  18. I wish Ikea and other popular shops would install queue-cams. Could see what the queue is like and pick your time. And could be a whole new form of reality TV. "Oh I see Marsha up the road has nowt better to do than queue for 3 hours at Aldi."
  19. We moved to Sheffield for professional reasons 25 years ago, and found it very welcoming. I'm in a different field entirely, so can't speak to your requirements, but wanted to wish you good luck. Do you know the city already -- did you go to school here? What made you choose Sheffield? --Dozer
  20. Hi - any advice on booking click-n-collect slots at Sainsbury Archer Road or Tesco on Abbeydale? We look and look but never see an open slot. Is there a predictable time when they open new slots? Or are they all pretty much taken by vulnerable people, in which case fair enough.
  21. In anticipation of this time, I went bald about 10 years ago.
  22. Longy67 -- thank you for your work. Like most of the people on here, we are in awe of how much you accomplish in good times, and in bad. I hope nothing on here sounded like a criticism. Wish we had a way of buying you a pint or a cappuccino. Or a face mask and some gloves.
  23. .... Just called and got through. They were brilliant, grateful that I called. What an amazing thing the NHS is.
  24. Thank you for the advice! I also sent a letter, but I'll try again now.
