I've never heard of these & on looking them up they're described as tasting a bit like pineapple. Would you agree with that?Finishing putting the feijoa jam and chutney in jars, as next door has given me loads of feijoas from his tree.
I'd like to give him some but he's diabetic and won't have anything that has sugar in it.
Braintree District Council have suspended the collection of waste from garden bins during the current pandemic as it is “non essential”.Half filling the garden bin( which gets collected tomorrow) with thistles which have sprouted everywhere.
The gardener usually comes this week but he's hurt his shoulder and didn't come.
Are you sure it's the Braintree District Council, not the Brainless District Council?Braintree District Council have suspended the collection of waste from garden bins during the current pandemic as it is “non essential”.
Our local message board is full of advice to bag it up and put it in the grey “non recyclable” bin which, I believe goes to landfill.

You say you can forget about it, but soon there'll be a letter saying you owe $47 trillion, and they owe you one shiny new brass penny (don't spend that penny all at once!)Not 5 minutes ago but something I did yesterday - my tax returns! Yay!
Everyone has to send in their own Self-assessment form here. The majority get a tax refund each year so you get a nice juicy little payout just before summer. It's usually an easy process which requires you to duóuble check the pre-printed figures on you tax form.You can confirm everything via text message now. But I've noticed that mine are getting more complex as I get older requiring more work from me. I have my own business accounts and VAT to declare whi take time. Plus this year I have to declare buying and selling shares and buying and selling a house which means much more paperwork and calculations.
But finally it's all done and submitted and I can forget all about it for another year.
Why does your fish food appear to have Mothra on the front of it?!Five minutes ago? Just receiving a package from Amazon, I decided to order some fish food to make sure my four terribly small fish don’t starve. My original pack of fish food which has lasted since the start of time is on the right, I think I should have paid more attention to the description!

I wish there was a different option to just a "like" button. Maybe a sort of "Solidarity" button? I always feel bad liking posts that are obviously not great news but when I do, I mean "I hear you and send my best regards".Laying in bed at 02.00 reading the forum as I can’t sleep. Gastroenterologist has put me on a liquid diet for three months. My Crohn’s inflammation markers were sky high last time I saw him, rather than inflict more suppression on my already compromised immune system with steroids during the current plague I am to abstain from real food and alcohol.
The prescribed drinks give me terrible indigestion and keep me awake most of the night.
