tip for today: do NOT let yourself be coerced into watching a crappy film just because you are too tired to object, yes you "might" like it... but you won't.

The best way to clean saucepans is to boil ruhbarb in them.

When drilling holes in walls, stick (with a post-it) a fully opened envelope just below the mark to catch all the waste. No hoovering of the floor needed after. :D

Don't eat that, you don't know where it's been.
Take my love, take my land, take me where I can not stand. I don't care, I'm still free, You can't take the sky from me.

Take me out to the black, tell them I ain't comin' back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.
