  1. I'm in need of a dentist who specialises in veneers / cosmetic dentistry and wonder if anyone can recommend one, preferably in North Sheffield. Thanks
  2. Hi. Does any one know any pet shops in or around sheffield who stock Burgess Supa Rabbit Natural or similar rabbit food that is pellet free? My bunny will not eat pellets and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to find the Burgess Natural that he loves
  3. Can anyone recommend a roofer please for replacement of an entire pitched roof . S35 area.
  4. I've used the ladies members locker rooms 3 times a week for the last 2 years and never had anything stolen but I have been in the numerous times when there were women just sat in there not doing anything at all. I particularly noticed the same woman on a few occasions who just looked totally out of place. She was at least 60, was in full religious dress (inc headscarf etc) and had no belongings with her. She didn't look capable of walking very far unaided, never mind hitting the gym!! She was literally just sat there seemingly doing nothing for the entire time it took me to shower, dress and get ready for work. Perhaps wrongly I just assumed she was a cleaner slacking off but I have noticed since that the cleaners all wear a uniform. I will certainly be keeping my stuff with me in future!!
  5. Good grief.... the things people complain about. If you've ever been to Wagamamas, Wasabisabi or any other Japanese-type restaurant you know that they like to dish things up as they are ready, rather than waiting til it's all ready (ie keeping some of it 'warm' while the rest is cooking). They cook most of the noodle type stuff on a hotplate type thing and if you look at the open plan kitchen in Wagamamas you will see that they don't have masses of space for dozens of unnecessary warming ovens/lamps. If you don't like that style of service don't go there! Go somewhere where some meals are dried out because they have been left under hot lamps while the rest of the order is cooked.... oooooh or even better, somewhere where everything is straight from freezer to microwave to table in less than 10 minutes. Yummy!
  6. Has anyone had a nail bed tattoo'd - or tattoo'd someone else's?? I had ingrowing toenails removed 15 years ago and they look awful. I've got other tattoos and don't usually get bothered by the 'pain' but I realise that it's probably gonna hurt like hell as they are extremely sensitive. So I wondered if anyone had any experience of this. If numbing cream isn't sufficient to dull the pain, is there anywhere that would do it as a cosmetic/medical procedure with local anaesthetic??
  7. Picking up an old thread..... does anyone one know if any supermarkets (or anywhere else) still takes in coat hangers for recycling? I must have 200+ that need rehoming. They are all in tact. If anyone knows where I can take them for recycling then please let me know.... or PM me if you want any of them!
  8. I moved my sofa today and noticed that there are funny scorch marks on the radiator behind where the sofa was. The radiator is modern and was only installed about 5 years ago. The other radiators are all ok. The marks cover an area about 15cm x 15cm right in the middle of the radiator and will not clean off. I tried to google such a problem but just got loads of stuff about discolouration of radiator fluid and leak problems. Anyone know why the front surface of the radiator would appear scorched?
  9. Did have to smile at all the people who decided to try and beat the roadworks by cutting through the bottom end of Grenoside only to find that the junction between Cinder Hill and A16 has been blocked off (been like that for over 20 years). Saw 5 cars pull up to the concrete bollards and turn back there in about 2 minutes
  10. All the lights in my house have been flickering intermittently for the past 3 or 4 nights. My parents live nearby and have had a similar issue. We live in Grenoside - anyone know why this is happening?
  11. I really feel for you. I am one of the people who had to move house to save my own sanity from the clutches of the neighbour from hell. There are a few things that might determine how you deal with this. Are you a homeowner or a tenant? If tenant, council or private? Are they a homeowner or a tenant? If tenant, council or private? If you both own your properties then it is pretty hard to get anywhere by reporting them, calling 101, keeping diaries. The council will help 'advise' you and lend you a noise recorder but they do not get involved with court procedings unless you/they are council tenants. You would have to arrange that side of things and stump up the fees etc. All of that is only going to cause more strain and bad feeling. Also, from the minute you officially start proceedings, you would have to declare it if you decide to sell. I lived with it for 6 years and was literally driven mad. My advice would be move and never look back
  12. It is unfortunate that the way First run their company always seems to result in the drivers being blamed. Maybe some drivers were advised that OAP passes are vaild before 9am this week but there is a huge possibility that not all drivers were told this. The morning drivers start work at the depot. The admin staff are no longer based there so there is every likelyhood that the message did not get through to all drivers. Bus radios don't always work either. I'd be miserable too if I was constantly under attack because I worked for a crap company.
  13. After 2 days working from home I was glad to get back to work today. Bus on time, no traffic and no students. Quite a few people turned in, largely because they were also fed up working from home. My work are quite good, as we have the ability to work from home. We were thanked for making the effort to get in to the office and told we could slope off after 4 but we were busy so most people actually worked over by about 30 minutes to get stuff finished off. Probably made up for the fact that we'd been less productive at home earlier in the week Its a bit of give and take
