Twice I’ve had to have the oven fixed..both times it was the clock, if that stops working it shuts down the gas supply to the ovens and rings... how stupid is that!..hope yours lasts the festive season.

WARNING!!  Grumpy Old Woman Post!!!   :devil:

This what bugs me about the whole Christmas thing, that we "have to" buy people something, even though there's nothing they want or need.

Sorry, I'll go away now and carry on trying to ignore Christmas, not difficult given everything that's going on with this house!

I don’t.. I’ve given up buying gifts for folks( mainly relatives) I spent a lot of time and thought on choosing things and just  got so sick of getting crap back ( and I mean crap not just something I didn’t like ) that went straight to the charity was a waste  of money all round.

Not a music fan so don’t really have any favourites, if I had to choose it would be Greg Lake.

Could it be one of these... hand embroidery, nothing to do with the machine.
