  1. I am sorting through my late mum's stuff and have a range of knitting needles to go to a good home. I would like to keep some for my own use but I wondered if there is someone or perhaps a community group out there who would appreciate them. I have paired them up. A box of chocs or bottle of wine is all I ask. Any thoughts. Thanks. Greystones area.
  2. thanks his name before he changed it by deed poll was Jozef Kolataj. I was under the impression that the Polish club had now closed. He made a point of not mixing with the Polish community according to his family, presumably to try and forget some of the horror. have been reading around subject and apparently the national trade unions were not keen to welcome the 250,ooo who were in Uk after the war. Pity I did not talk to him when he was alive!
  3. my father in law was polish and settled here after WW2 working in the steel industry. ( interesting that this group were not welcomed by the national trade unions....) I have joined a family history group but having real problems tracking him down. I am ashamed to say that I did not question him closely when I knew him 1980 - 97. I only have his date of birth, his naturalisation certificate and army number and all my efforts so far have got me nowhere. Can anyone please help with a positive way forward?
  4. not driven for a while and could do with a confidence booster - live S11
  5. we are having our 7 year old gas boiler serviced soon what is the going rate for an independent job?
  6. am in the middle of sorting our policy renewable. Beginning to realise that there are wide discepancies between companies and feel ripped off. Seems to take ages to sort. any advice on most economical and user friendly companies? I find it a nightmare every year when our travel, car and house insurances are due. Is building insurance strictly necessary for example.

    Alcohol free beer

    thanks all especially the hint of ice. have erdington if choice as longer but don't get me started on price.......... have had a discussion at my SMART group about how some pubs do not sell any at all - i have walked out of 3 in a row when trying to get sober - have tried complaining to manager but stressful and takes time and energy we agreed that once it is law not to have ANY alcohol in your body pubs will be falling g over themselves to sell - the power of advertising..... still looking out for fruit beer as in original post - help still needed . happy new year to all. do miss Guinness which had when I was pregnant and breastfeeding many moons again. can cope with very low alcohol by the way

    Local book group

    for the new year I would like to join a local book group rather than just comment to myself. nothing up to date on here, so do you know of any in Greystones please? seasons greetings.
  13. my son is going to America on Januaury4th for a semester as part of his degree and then probably travel for about a month. the university do not seem to be much help on insurance. although he has to purchase medical through Flagstaff university - what this covers is still unclear - we are concerned parents about travel, possessions medical from the time he hits the country. does anyone have any advice please? - we are anxious enough....
  14. i have used the phrase 'it will be in my sublim' for many years in the context of a tune I do not realise I know until I hear it.in other words it is buried in the back of my mind. it is now beginning to annoy my other half as he thinks that people are bemused by this but dare not say. am I making this up - could it be a local saying from my childhood in Northamptonshire? I am just puzzled and google is no help. thanks

    Wills -tenants in common

    many thanks all. we have taken legal advice and have instructed a solicitor to draft papers at the same time as power of attorney. think that that this option will become more common in future. was advised that property trust is not a good idea. incidentally i am the wife instigating this as my dad was rather upset when I suggested this after his stroke at 80 ish but my sister was very grateful in the long run for her power of attorney as she lived near and I did not when my dad died and mum had to go into a home. i am now trying to think of my children well in advance.
