    'Why Mummy Drinks' by Gill Sims. Hilarious.

    No, she's not diabetic - she just has regular low sugar level (below 4 I think). I'll make sure her teachers are fully aware that she needs regular snacks to maintain safe levels.

    My grandaughter has hypoglycemia and has to have regular sweet snacks to boost her sugar levels. This is not easy as she's at school and is only 4 and a half. I've heard that from the age of 5 they can grow out of it. Has anyone any experience of this?
  4. No I didn't. The sign says that you are allowed 2 hours for local shopping - not just Aldi.
  5. I was unaware that, when using the local Aldi car park, my car was photographed when entering and when leaving. Two hours is free but I was 21 minutes over the limit, hence a postal demand from ParkingEye for 40 pounds. I thought that fine demands for parking on private lands were not legally binding. but apparently ParkingEye are able to access my car details and my name and address from DVLA records. So I guess I had better pay up. It wont happen again!

    We move on. 101 or more in 6 darts.
  7. Mick George was there also. Janet Flood went out with Dave White who played lead guitar in the Raiders who were on stage Saturday nights with me on Rhythm guitar. Every other Saturday night featured Joe Cocker as Vance Arnold and the Avengers. Dog Robson moved to America. Saw John Ridgeway a few years with his wife Janet Emery as was. Martin Simpson (Lyn's brother) played bass guitar with the Raiders. Those were the days.
  8. Remember the Raven well. Lawrence Flood was the landlord 1961. Daughter Janet.

    The Growth of Ranmoor, Hangingwater and Nether Green by Peter Warr.
  10. Visited Bradfield Brewery last Monday. Came out 52 quid poorer. Tried their Farmers Bitter at the Ranmoor Inn. Good stuff.

    Interesting program. My father worked with stainless steel on Shepcote Lane from 1947-1972. Now a housing estate.
  13. I've seen many adverts of late for compact, battery driven vacuums which come with attachments for furniture, cars etc. About 180 quid. Wondered if anyone has bought one and are they any good as our current cleaner is not easy to manoever in tight spaces especially.

    Tim West and Prunella Scales.

    I work as a volunteer lock-keeper on the Llangollen canal and I've met several boaters who have met them and they confirm that, they are indeed, a lovely couple. Some say that its being surrounded by so many cameramen that causes Timothy to steer into unseen obstacles from time to time. One couple claim to have met them by a lockside pub and had a glass of wine with them.
  15. When my father went anywhere for a meal, he took his digital aid out as he could hear everyone in the room apart from those sitting at his table.
