How daft is that?
« on: January 05, 2022, 11:07:26 pm »
I felt a tad chilly and wondered if maybe some radiators needed bleeding. Now I must have half a dozen or more rad keys of various types - die cast ones, brass ones with wings, brass ones with a bar through. They are in various places. Draws of accumulated detritus. Decorative pots that may as well serve at least one useful purpose. A couple of toolboxes.

Except they aren't. I've checked everywhere. The rad key fairy has struck. I turned the thermostat up and the rads  all got hot and from feeling the tops I reckon they are all OK. I've still ordered 4 off eBay though. Nutty.

My radiator key (ONE) is in a little tin with key that opens meter boxes.. It has been in the same drawer for years.. I never have any trouble finding it because I know where it is.. :halo:
My knickers are in a drawer all together as are my bras..  My tea towels are in a kitchen drawer.. Saucepans/ baking and roasting tins have their place too..
So no problem.. Where the hell are my glasses..!! They were on my head just now.. :hmm:
Don’t ask me.. I know nuffink..

Talking of bras, I'm a 'bra hoarder' whenever I buy a new one, I never throw the old ones away - no idea why, any amateur psychologists on here ?  :cool:

Scrumpy mentioned her glasses and that reminded me of the other night when I had trouble putting on my reading glasses.  I was already wearing my other pair!

I thought I'd seen a picture of a robin nesting in one but unfortunately didn't find it,

Does that mean you still have your trainer bra..?

I have just thrown away my last comfy BHS bra because it was falling to bits.  When I heard BHS was closing I went round all the shops in the area buying my size.

I just can't find another comfy make.  The lady in M&S told me I was wearing the wrong size but the one she sold me seems too tight.  Baggy tops and no bra is the answer at the moment!

Surely the factory that made the BHS bras must still be making them?

M&S do have an online store and I think will deliver by post as well as just into a store for pickup.

Fellas this is girl talk.

Shelia, You have my sympathy, good old M & S have discontinued the bra I have been been wearing for years (not the same one!!).  The one they say is the same isn't, and I tried another one, which although the same size isn't.   So what do you do? you can't go round the High Street, what's left of it taking your clothes off and trying on bras.  You could probably send online for 20 and none of them fit, its a nightmare.  I expect the factory who made your bra does still exist but its finding it.  Why do these bloody shops keep changing their styles? I don't want something different every six months.  My bra had been going for years, they must have sold a load, if it 'ant broken why fix it?
