Takes my breath away,
Just saw the scans for my mate at works first baby last week and I got tears in my eyes... amazing

yummm banana toastie... yummm carrot soup
I really like Glastonbury but have to balance it with Big Green Gathering as it's a little hedonistic..
It upset me to see all the trash people left all over but it was so great to see so many bands and chill out at the stones all night.
I've registered and will be on the edge of my seat til the 1st of April!
Me and boyf have booked tickets, I got a student discount on my ticket this year too, only £70 wahey!!
Would offer lifts again but not going in my car this year, no driving for me! wahey!
funny to find this thread as I saw an advert for fostering at work a few weeks ago and have seriousley been thinking about it for the future.
Twas good... who went in the end? I didn't see any familiar faces from here
I'm going to the BGG, so is Danny and hopefully Gary. Just got my tickets through.
If anyone needs a lift from Huddersfield or surrounding area let me know

To be straight I tend to buy in bulk dried peas / lentils / beans and grow herbs myself these days. Get fresh veggies from the coop and make my own burgers / curries etc.
But have been veggie for 15 years and haven't always been as good with food / diet!
Can't beat TESCO's for price but dead unethical
My local supermarkets tend to get rid of low selling ranges so yeh, it's hit and miss... best to learn how to make your own stuff... freeze it in advance if you're stuck for time maybe?
I'll be there if that's ok?
I dunno why omni's seem to need to make there presence known / justify themselves on veggie / vegan forums?
I'm sure they don't mean harm, probably don't realise they're doing it
But it gets tedious, soz my omni friends, seriousley
You eat meat, ok, cool... we know!... so let's move on
I wouldn't like this forum to go private though, cos I think it'd put up too many walls, but I see both sides... so I go with whatever the majority veggie decision is *cheesy blairite grin *

why do you guys find it ok to have second hand leather but not new leather?
it's not particularily ok, but it's not funding the industry and it is environmentally sound to reuse products
surely that's just like buying last seasons clothing? you're still buying the stuff just a year out and from someone else?
ha ha ha :wiggle:

Awww that's really cool, I hope things work our for everyone
Well the biggest loser is him, he wants his kids with him every minute of every day, but men arent alowed that by law...
Stability for the girls (his children) is the most important thing in the world.. it's all odd right now:(
It'll be ok though, yes

Just to drag this thread off topic.......is this the married guy you were having issues with? Are you together now? TELL US!!!!!
He's living seperate from his family now, we're best friends pending him being a single man
We love each other a lot, and i love his kids. His wife is quite happy to let him go, cos they havent got on for years, so we'll see what happens over the next few months

I cant see that second hand leather is more user friendly than new leather so i'm unsure of where youre Q is going...
hmm, maybe whether it's "user friendly" isn't quite the issue
I'd urge people to not buy "new" leather... but the movement to respect animal life is far bigger than one individual issue...
If the products weren't there in the first place... we wouldn't have to double check all the ingredients in everything we consume / wear.
I often think that we (me included at times, sorry) pick on consumers / individuals... when really the issue is much larger..
OK, the odd person buying leather builds up in number... but it's the industry specifically that needs targetting in my humble opinion
I think the majority of people, even meateaters would, choose poducts that didnt hurt animals given a real broad choice.
We don't have that much of a broad accessable choice in todays market.
I reakon this'll be the best yet!
I'm not Christian but I find this time of year enchanting
Went out last night and the atmosphere was electric, everyones in such good spirits!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll be spending lots of time with my family. My old boyfriend is back from the Faulklands, my best friend is back home and has just got back with his boyf and my fella's spending much of the holidays with me
It's gonna be a good one!!!
There's magic in the air!!
Blue Magoe?... come out with us Xmas eve! Ya grumpy bugger
I have quite a lot of second hand / vintage leather clothes and an old 60's leather and fur patchwork poof.
I wouldn't buy new leather goods, but second hand I'm not that bothered about... it kinda freaks me out that it's dead skin, but ethically I see no problem recycling old goods.
What you doing this year?
Are you going to be in the UK at a party, or are you gonna be further a-field?
U2?... must be some weird time warp thing... I'm sure they never sounded like U2 at the time
and another thing... where's my cocoa?
Green and Blacks Maya Gold yummy
You look more you, goodo

At aproximately 7.30pm the bastard thing was taken out.. not a very enjoyable procedure.. and I wont know how bad the scar will be till the bandage is off.. but YEEEEEEEY its out and I feel better already!
They gave a good fight though trying to keep it in me.. offering many other drugs to stop the symptoms etc.. but nuh uh.. I wouldnt have any of it!!
Offering you more drugs to counter balance the symptons?...hmmm sounds all very awful.
Glad it's over for you...

Bet you say that to all the boys.
Hope you are well, doing another ?
Yup def, there's the Leeds 1/2 Marathon next year. I'd love to do the New York Marathon for Get Kids Going but that may have to wait til 2007.
My company sponsored me £325 this time so hopefully they'll keep being a major sponsor *fingers crossed*
The people are so great and it's brilliant doing something that makes a difference immediately to peoples lives.
Plus training means I've given up smoking... bargain!
