I've been giggling here, thinking about being reported.  So funny!  Big_Laugh   


I don't buy things for my kitchen, there is simply no room in there.  When I was a housewife though, things were different...Roll_Eyes

I'll try that again!

Definitely, a yogurt maker is a good thing. I am glad I got mine, and can make soy yogurt easily and reasonably cheaply. (Soy only because I am allergic to milk.)

Aw heck, I vowed I wasn't going to spend any more money on gadgets.  But you know I am trying to lose weight and eat yoghurt for breakfast every day and it is a 40 mile round trip to the supermarket.  I'm talking myself into it aren't I?    Whistle    Whistle     Whistle

Yep!

Join the Club, Danuta! Cry

F was offered a Kitchen Aid (at least, that's what I think it is called - N. American version of the Kenwood Chef, but in a very sexy dark red coloir) for a donation to charity. So I had to cough up £50 as half said donation. It was a bargain, no doubt, but it is gathering dust. Angry

Ahem, just go easy on the Medicineplease Danny, I know it's Saturday but...

Did Fiona get any attachments for the Kitchen Aid?  I know there are lots, mincer, sausage maker, etc.  I used to have a Kenwood Chef when I made and decorated cakes for a living but I don't think I could make use of one now.

I'll try that again!

Goodness me, TA - you decorated cakes for a living?

Then again, we have an acquaintance who makes fitted kitchens. The recession hit his business hard so his OH came up with the idea of making really fancy fairy cakes and selling them to food outlets. It really took off.

Read the story here

Re the Guinness Drinker Emoticon (GDE), TA - isn't it a bit like synchronised swimming?

Superb! Cheers Ok Wine Medicine

Sorry, TA - to answer your question regarding attachments:

No.

But we have bought attachments for our Kenwood Chef, such as the sausage making device.

Synchronised swimming, what an apt analogy, especially when two posts are showing the same thing at one time.  Such fun.


Yes, I used to do that.  I think that having an artistic skill make it easy for me...  I read the article about your acquaintance, I see that she started off with £100.00, I started with £15.00.  I was trying to attach a photo of some of my cakes but can't remember how to do it, never mind, it was all so long ago.  I've made stained glass windows too, oh and made knitted goods on my machines  and did calligraphy...Roll_Eyes  you get the picture?


If you use the Kenwood but not the Kitchen-aid, why not put the latter on e-bay and  get your money back? 


I'll try that again!

Mmmmm TA, maybe that is why we get on so well, You sound like a grafter, just like us.

Fiona used to be a high earning 3D animator on London's Wardour St. in Soho, working 80 hours every week. The business dropped like a stone when popular animation software became available. People felt that they could DIY, and they could but not as well as a pro.

Anyhow, getting back on track, this thread is for lost souls who cannot possibly part with any piece of kitchen equipment.

I dare not suggest selling the Kitchen Aid on eBay. Perhaps you could email F and suggest it? Doh

And her e-mail addy is....?


I used to be a grafter but the little bod has almost disintegrated so can't stay up for long now.  'Tis a bugger because my greatest pleasure was walking.  Ne'er mind, I've enjoyed all that I've done, learned much on the way and made wonderful friends.

'working 80 hours every week.'  Was that allowed even then?  Outrageous!

I'll try that again!

oh poor you!! TA I love walking too but due to a medical issue I also find it difficult to walk far and if I overdo it as I did today, I am wrecked!!! 

I am now curled up on the sofa, wondering why i felt the need to go into the garden, despite being already in pain this morning, and hurting!! Angry  

Still lovely daughter cooked me tea and has made some very yummy looking banana cakes, so I am a very lucky person!!!! Big_HugBig_Hug  (me hugging her!!)

I think the world needs a new self-help group, along the lines of AA (as in booze).

GAG

Gadgets Are Good. Ok

Goodness me, so many people on here are suffering from one form of illness / disability or other. You poor people. Makes me realise how lucky I am, personally

We learn to live with what live gives us Danny.  It is no big deal, there are always people to help and that is wonderful.  Just be happy.  Don't worry, be happy.Roll_Eyes
