    Cheeky question moot or wilderness

    The Moot is great for all ages, abilities, interests. We come as a family but frankly we all do our own things and meet up when it's time for food or else our teens go and 'forage' in my store cupboard, only evidence that they exist is the washing up left behind! There are a wide variety of...

    Fruits in alcohol, what are you busy concocting?

    Whitling Tools any Recomendations?

    I went with Flexcut, Carl and Lou had tools that I borrowed at the Moot which I found comfortable to hold and easy to use. I now have 6 micro tools, 5 larger tools with handles already fixed (so no having to change blades/handles each time) they also put in a sharpening block & compound. Now...

    I've got quite a bit of 'out of date' tea in a cupboard (frankly I don't think tea goes out of date). Happy to donate some. (I buy it, taller husband hides it in tall cupboard I can't reach, I buy more! 😂)

    Hello from sunny Kent!
