  1. Had a leaflet through my door today - bright yellow card - it appears to be hand written in sharpie - but isn't - saying "Hi, can you help me? I am looking to a buy a property in your street I have funds available to buy quickly if needed. If you are thinking of selling, or know someone who is, please call me to discuss. Thank you Karen Mobile number" Now after a quick search it seems the more middle class of us are using this as a technique to buy in areas where houses don't come up very often - a tip nicked off Location, Location, Location, HOWEVER - living in a council estate in the north of Sheffield I don't think Jacinta and Timothy are thinking of gentrifying my area just yet - which begs the question - what the hell? I like the way the ad is nicely ambiguous " a property in your street" - and surely if someone is selling they'd have a for sale sign and you'd contact their estate agents. I recall getting one of these I just binned a few years ago without much thought - but I'd love to know if anyone has had one in any other areas. I'm in Parson Cross. I think it may be these dodgy "we buy any house" lot. I would call the number but can't be arsed. Anyone had same?

    Laying a new drive

    It doesn't always. It your drives drains into grass or a border it can often not be needed. They'll tell you when you get the quote I'm sure.
  3. Hi all Can anyone recommend a good garage in North Sheffield? By good I mean - won't see I'm a woman and give me guff and overcharge. Thanks in advance.
  4. Hiya all I usually bump my previous post from last year but can't find it so apologies. It was just to make everyone aware that South Yorkshire Transport Executive off a Getabout pass for £6.50 per week for all 11-18 year olds with valid Mega Travel, Mega miCard or the 16-18 Student pass if at college or 6th form. I went to check that this was still running on the SYPTE site and had some right bother finding it - but it's still there and doesn't look like it's been affected by the rises. I hope this is useful.
  5. We have been paying for two separate weekly passes for our daughter to get to school and get about. I looked into whether there was a citywide type but couldn't find anything so ended up paying £5 to First and £5 to Stagecoach. Apologies to those aware - but for those not - Have a look at this £6.50 a week. Any bus or tram in South Yorkshire. £2.50 for a day - any bus or tram. £3.60 for any bus, tram or train (day only.) Thought I'd share.
  6. Hiya all One of my neighbours was washing the dishes this afternoon and found a young budgie in her garden. If anyone has lost a budgie could they PM me please? Thanks

    Found - Lost Budgie - Firth Park Area

    That's really useful to know - I didn't realise there were budgies in the wild in the UK. Consider myself a birder too!

    Hillarys Blinds

    Has anyone used this company? Are they v expensive compared to other companies? We're looking for wooden venetians for a small terrace (7 windows - 3 small) More to the point - when you get them round is it the hard sell and can you get rid easily? Your comments are appreciated.
  10. It's a pants job - the supermarkets don't want you to do it - but if I get good polite service I always tip em. If I get my regular driver at Xmas I also put a fiver in a card.
  11. Hiya Has anyone attended the SW group at the Church on the Corner where Lindsay meets Southey Green Road? I've never been to any of these groups before and just wondered what the people and the consultant were like as I've heard that some groups are better than others. Posts or PMs welcome.
  12. Can I have an egg mayo - salad - no onion please? Do you deliver to Shiregreen?

    Cupcakes, is it a waste of time ?

    Julie - I would mailshot/visit local pubs and WMCs that offer functions rooms for parties, weddings etc... People are specifically looking for that type of thing and you'd be right there. Maybe take some into local places and speak to the manager. Getting your face in is really important and they remember you. Good luck hun.

    Famous movie lines.

    "All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us? ":hihi:
  16. Why don't you ask them? Put it in writing and they will answer I'm sure.

    Can losing weight make you shorter?

    If you have fat feet yes. I lost a half inch in height. I also went from a size 5.5 to 4.5 in a shoe. I can hear your minds whirring... Don't. Bother. :0)
  22. Oh man. They censored my insult of the local nards sci fi- I'm gutted!!! Actually stunned I've not been banned but anyways....
  23. I really think that you are worrying unnecessarily chuck. I've just read and reread your post and have to say that when my daughter was in Y5 and 6 - she showed ALL of the above and more - and continues to at times. You haven't listed one thing that I would be remotely concerned about. Seriously. I think that it's great that you are obviously very involved in her education but as with most things - we're all different and have different rates and ways of learning. Please don't compare to others. We all want our kids to do well and with your love she will. She sounds like a happy, fun and extrovert girl and you've done a great job. It's also worth remembering that she is prepubescent so her hormones will be all over the shop too - with moods etc.. Getting upset is a daily occurrence over the slightest thing! - don't expect them to react the same way an adult might - they aren't that developed. I think sometimes we forget how old they are. I remember giving the news of our dad passing away to my brother and sister of 8 and 12 a few years ago. I was met with two kids jumping around the living room chanting "we've got the day off school!" I was utterly livid - but they just don't understand hunny - they are just beginning to learn who they are. By the way - my daughter never had a dummy and you can't shut her bloody up!!:0)

    Why is Facebook worth £104 billion

    Facebook makes approx $1Bn in advertising revenue annually. Generally companies that float - are only worth 2 or 3 times more than their annual profit. There are notable exceptions eg Apple. When Facebook floated - it's worth became $104 - that's over 100 times what it makes annually. Can anyone see a problem with longevity here?
