Hellosoop and all - haven’t been to the kitchen for a while but thought I’d cheer those who need it and drop in with a freshly baked banana bread and some Welsh butter for the slathering of....

Let me know if you need some more folks - just save your overripe bananas for me, the blacker the better!

Hi Purplepixie, I'm new here too and really enjoying the kitchen.

A thread's been started asking if we need a Nice Nansnet so I seconded morethan's recommendation for the kitchen; doesn't get much nicer than thissmile.

Hello ... I've never been in the kitchen before but I've just seen it mentioned. Can I come in?

Smileless2012 Fri 06-Mar-20 19:52:41

I saw you on the thread I've just mentioned Sparklefizz. It's lovely to see you heresmile

A cosy new kitchen soop. I'm pleased to find it has warmed up nicely as it looks like being another cold night. This morning my back door thermometer registerd -3. Luckily the sun came round before I had to scrape the car.
Having taken a wrong turning this morning, I found myself passing Lidl, so I didn't pass. I did see some very loaded trolleys but there were plenty of loo rolls. However, it's obvious that the place to go for those is a certain loft in a small corner of Kintyre.

That Pompeii picture used to be kept in a sort of locked cupboard that was only opened for men to view.
I suspect that was so that women couldn’t make comparisons!

Another new kitchen already! I’d only just figured out where the biscuit tin was in the last one 🤔

Please don’t be put off posting how you feel no matter how bad things are. I think you did exactly the right thing in contacting the MacMillan nurses and I hope they can do something to help in this dire situation. flowers and (hugs)

Typical of you kitty. Telling us to behave when you are off somewhere gallivanting 😊.

galen he could poke someone’s eye out with that. No wonder they wanted to keep it locked up 😀

Welcome to all new comers especially those with cupcake or wine

The kitchen is a lovely place to be.

Here's a lovely cupcake. I've got a lot of food allergies and intolerances but have invented a cake I can actually eat with some weird ingredients but it tastes nice and "cakey". Try a piece cupcake xx

Yummy sparklefizz. Was that an element of hawthorn and almonds with tones of beetroot and cloves I detect in the icing? 😊

Marydoll Fri 06-Mar-20 20:27:49

Just popped in, so I can find you all, when I need to.
I went into the garage and found a load of toilet rolls, DH had been shopping. wink

I wanted to send my prayers and best wishes to Morethan and her family. What an inspirational lady. 💐

Welcome to this madhouse Purplepixie and SparklefizI am so glad that the cakes etc are all calorie free, My apologies, I cannot bake= no point- I live on my own and would end up eating it.

Nice to see you Purplepixie, and welcome. People in here are very friendly and if you like cake,there’s always lots of it.
