    When in doubt about what to do, take time out to have a cuppa!

    If you acquire some chaga, and use a grater, then make tea from it, let it steep [its long been recognised as a superfood, to fight numerous ailments, including cancers] and then dry out the chaga gratings, on tin foil on the radiator, it will still work perfectly well as a firelighter.

    Don't bring stuff you can make when you're there.

    If you're going to put a can of beans on the fire, TAKE THE WRAPPER OFF FIRST. Nobody likes ashy beans. Also take the lid off.....

    Nicely put. I'd have issues contacting my mum though unless there is a course on mediumship.

    I'd replace that one with 'If you're not enjoying it you're doing it wrong'.

    And me but the spirit of the comment is to remember to keep those who care for you informed that you're safe and well....

    Always pack an extra pair of dry socks.
