  2. And we are extremely grateful, thank you . Still haven't figured out how she escaped, the garden is still fully secure
  3. Went missing around tea time today. She is tan and white, chipped but with the wrong details. Please let me know if you see her or hear anything. Thanks
  4. Having a wheat intolerance, I find the cost of eating wheat free way too high. I would prefer to make my own bread, Yorkshire puddings, pies etc but they never seem to turn out right by changing the flour. Has anyone had any success with making their own wheat free foods?
  5. Do go and check with your doctor. Gluten is a possibility but wheat intolerance is also on the up so that might be worth considering too.
  6. Have you looked through Google, twitter or Facebook? Even if he isn't on their personally, he may look in or someone who knows may do so it might be worth leaving a comment, sending a message etc.
  7. Then at least make him do that and paint it up so it isn't as noticeable. Apart from the safety aspect I can't imagine that's going to be very warm in winter! As for insurance, I can't imagine they will be happy to insure a property that isn't secure but each company may be different so you may have to ask them.
  8. Does the landlord visit? I'd change the door, put his in storage and then put it back on when you move! I'm sorry it doesn't really answer your question but isn't there something you can do about the landlord not replacing it? Surely that isn't safe?
  9. 2 was certainly my favourite and I really didn't fancy the look of Journey although I may be tempted if it turns up cheap. I'm just not sure Legends is going to be worth the expense.
  10. There is a radio mast over that way somewhere, could it be that?
  11. Due out next year apparently, is anyone going to bother? I have all the Fables apart from Journey as I didn't really like the demo, however there is no way I'm paying out for the Xbox One just to be able to play Legends.
  12. Do the job center advisor's no longer sit down with people and work out exactly how many hours they need to work to be able to live? I know they used to do this but you had to make an appointment. You would take down all your financial outgoing details ( what your full rent etc would be) and they would calculate it all for you making it easier for you to know what to apply for. I know this is a pretty emotional subject for some but cut him some slack. He is actively seeking work, many don't bother, but where is the point in working 8 hours a week if he can't even afford the clothes, travel to get to that job or afford a meal when he gets home. Those who are actively seeking work should be encouraged and supported, not told to accept anything even if it means drowning in debt and being thrown out of their home.
  13. I assumed he was paying for both? Either way, £3 each = £6. £2.80 bus = £8.80 Take a drink with them? (many do). Still not bad for 2 kids to get plenty of exercise, socialise and meet new people in a relatively safe environment.
  14. It wasn't just one child though, it was 2 children. I think the prices are pretty fair to be honest, some of the sessions are just £3 (if you have a lifecard). There are no longer many places where kids can take part in activities completely free of charge unfortunately and I'd much prefer to spend £10 knowing that two children were pretty much safe and know where they are for 2 hours than them hanging around on the street.
  15. Mine have a chore chart, one simple thing to do 6 days a week. Of those 6 things half is revision. If the chores and revision are done they get £2.50 paid into their bank accounts every Friday and £2.50 cash. The idea is that they save the £2.50 each week so that they can afford more expensive items and teaches them to put money away. My daughter has Ice skating lessons which can get pretty pricey so for all the extras she wants, own boots, skate jacket, dress etc, I'm making her save her spending money and pay half towards each item. Children have to learn about money from an early age I think and having a bank account in which they can save is a good thing too.
  16. Have you tried doing your shopping online? I found that my shopping bill shrank by around £30 a week shopping online as, although we pay delivery, we aren't walking around chucking everything we don't need in a trolley! It helps you make better choices too. Plus they often offer free delivery or money off your next shop, which is always a good bonus and they still have all the offers like bogof etc.
  17. 7 miles - 20-25 minutes, 15mph approx. AA Route planner says 16 minutes.
  18. I'll not post it all again - http://www.sheffieldforum.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1125721

  20. Yup that's right and I don't blame them for doing it either. My daughter loves this little cafe, the food is good, prices good and the staff are really friendly.
  21. Last night the met office said heavy snow from 6pm today, it now says light snow at 6pm, getting heavy for 9pm. It also says that it's not going to snow in Sheffield just yet, not until 6pm. Erm....have they looked outside this morning do you think?
  22. Personally I think SATS should be scrapped. Too much pressure piled onto children at too young an age and the results aren't always paid attention to anyway. If a school requires a true indication of a child's level then all they have to do is look at their assesment results or class work over a couple of years. For anyone who does want to help their year 6 children to prepare for these tests and can't afford the private tuition, there are plenty of FREE resources online. Free to print and free to use. My advice, find and print out the tests from previous years (available free also) and sit with your child and go through them until YOUR CHILD gets bored, then leave it, don't push them. Work through the papers together putting a small star next to anything that they appear to struggle with but don't make a big deal out of it. Doing this will boost your child's confidence, get them used to seeing the tests and how they are written and worded and be able to see that you are there to support them (very important). When you have identified areas where they struggle there are thousands of resources online to help you to help them learn, worksheets (with answer sheets), full explanations on current methods taught in schools, games to play (which do help them learn) and there are also the CGP books which schools themselves use. Most of all keep calm, don't force them and be encouraging. Praise for effort and giving it a go not just for getting something right. Reward them for sitting down with you, 'well done you did great with that, let's get a jigsaw out.' http://www.primaryresources.co.uk http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks2/ http://www.coolmath.com/ Just to give you a start .
  23. Admin Note, When posting links please ensure that they are suitable for a family friendly forum, such as SF. Any links which are found to be unsuitable will have to be removed. Thanks.
  24. Is there not a list of suppliers on the website? I know British Gas usually list the closest to you from your postcode, maybe they do too? Failing that, a lot of paypoint shops do them, such as Mace, if there's one near to you.
  25. They've been changing the forcast all evening, they haven't got a clue.
