Ooooh, which thread?

We too have activity when we do alterations. Not in the garden though, it seems weeding and planting are permitted!
Poltergeist thread:

https://forums.forteana.org/index.php?threads/poltergeists.20701/page-5

What my husband has had all his life isn't classic poltergeist as he also has been aware of a being, a woman, who has been with him ever since he can remember. She is 'distant' now, but much of the paranormal stuff in the past was mediated through her, somehow.

The complete para handy by Neil Munro. Loved it as a teen and I still love it as a sensible mature adult.

Para Handy is terrific. I read it down in Campeltown as lots of mentions there and I was feeling left out.

But, -you will need to read it out loud to understand him. (Like `Oor Wullie`)

I bought a handheld steamer from K Mart on Thursday and spent part of yesterday cleaning parts of the bathroom.
It's very good on the grouting in the shower, I didn't realise how much dirt would come off.
I had seen someone recommend it online and remembered that I used to have a steamer years ago.
I found the box with the accessories but not the machine so it probably broke and was thrown away.
This one was about a quarter the price of the next cheapest one so I figured if it didn't work it wouldn't matter as much.

One of our Mordaunt Short speakers in the dining room is missing its badge – it annoys me whenever I see it. So today I purchased these little beauties from the USA for $9.99 plus $2 p&p. I'll take off the one that's in situ so that the two are identical. Result!

Our next purchase is likely to be a bit bigger and more expensive – an iPad to replace my Dad's 2012 model that's on its last legs. He's used to Macs as the first computer he had was a second-hand Mac from my employer, and I'm not going to introduce him to Windows at the age of 86! He'll be paying for it. He might act like a miser (correct that, he does) but he's got more money than he'll ever spend...

For the past week my wife and I have been away in Canberra and have had the chance to visit a number of rather lovely country towns that we've not had the chance to visit for some years. As such, we've ended up buying countless jars and bottles of locally produced jams, chutneys, pickles, mustards and sauces. I'm looking forward to trying them all once back home tomorrow.
We also discovered and bought a wonderful antique framed map of part of the coast of New South Wales in perfect condition.

No, I'm not jealous at all, don't know what you're talking about...

Bought a couple of CDs this week after reminiscing about some of the stuff I used to listen to years ago and realising that I no longer had any copies of them.
Island Life - Grace Jones
Signing Off - UB40.
I bought a 5 CD set of Fairport Convention last week for the same reasons. How could it have been 40 years since I played 'Time will Show the Wiser' ? - especially since its significance on a Cornwall trip when I was 16.

I bought a 5CD set of Sandy Denny this week and have been loving it. I first heard Sandy's solo work in my early twenties and, although I loved her voice, wasn't mad on the music. Now, two decades on, I'm really enjoying discovering all these fantastic songs that I now appreciate much more.
