Sauteed courgettes with onions, garlic, sliced cherry tomatoes and red pesto, topped with mozzarella and grana padano and placed under a hot grill. Served with buttery rice. Yum!!

Salad leaves with cucumber, tomatoes, avocado, olives and feta; with an olive oil, cider vinegar and balsamic glaze dressing. It was DELICIOUS!!!
Topic A Sex toy question
23 Jul 2014 08:25
The response has usually been delighted enthusiasm! Rather than feeling threatened, partners have felt that my toys have taken any performance pressure off them and made things more relaxed and playful.
Topic A Statement concerning Lushstories.com's Ownership

Thanks for posting this Nicola, as otherwise I wouldn't be aware of this situation. I'm absolutely horrified by what you have been put through! Stuff of nightmares. And am just writing to add my support xx
Topic Big bust up over 'gay cake' Who do you think is right?
15 Jul 2014 08:33
This actually happened locally to me. And has spiralled off in several directions in terms of local politics. I can't find the article in the local paper, but this is very similar to the reports I read.
Topic A question for the ladies who run.
11 Jul 2014 15:22
Although I don't run, with my 32/34GG's I need a decent bra for exercise. Hope shock absorber works for you (the combo of small back and ludicrous bosom means I don't find that brand very comfortable). Here's a useful link (with a current postage offer) if you do need any extra ideas! :)
Topic Moving On at Different Paces
11 Jul 2014 14:57
I am so sorry that you are suffering so horribly. It sucks. But as Mareoculus wisely commented, "moving on" does not necessarily mean to the next person. We all have different paces of recovering from a broken heart, some people need weeks, others months or much longer than that. You just take the time you personally need to heal and feel whole again. Your ex dating so soon does not necessarily mean she has moved on - and some people rush from relationship to relationship never really recovering or learning from any of them just because they are scared to be alone.
I'm sorry that I can't give much comfort. But it is totally normal to feel so bereft or alone after losing someone you loved so deeply. As the others say, give yourself time. Of course you are lonely and off-kilter but that is no reason to feel pressurised to get to on with a new girl before you are ready. You take care and hang on in there and in time and with the support of good friends you will feel better, and that's a promise.
Topic Well hung or swell tongue?

Why can't I be stranded on a desert island with them both? Sounds like the perfect combo, especially if one was good at constructing hammocks and the other could cook! *stretches lazily and makes another fresh coconut cocktail*
Topic Not scoring and commenting on stories.
31 May 2014 12:51
If I have enjoyed reading a story I always score and comment on it. Just seems courteous really. However I don't expect a reply from an author, and when this happens it's always a lovely surprise. Just really nice to know that any comments were helpful and encouraging really! :)
Topic British women - did you vote?
26 May 2014 13:16
Yep. Although so many of my friends were not voting and therefore trying to dissuade me. So I told them that my grandmother was a suffragette (true!) and if I didn't turn up to vote she'd come back to haunt me!! (probably true!;)
26 May 2014 13:08
I do see your point Danny, but having read your story I would add that the blue dress of the title is not just a strong visual image (almost filmic) but also a vivid symbol; of lost love and life. However I do like the idea of discussing McGuffins and other literary techniques!
Topic Is this a sign that I should back off?
16 Mar 2014 14:38
You're very wise to be wary! Especially as you've been hurt by lies before. By all means give him a fair hearing but trust your instincts on whether his story rings true or not.
If he doesn't get back to you then that says it all really...

Men's thongs?? hahahahahahaha! ;)
Topic Are Beards Sexy?
02 Feb 2014 13:41
Clean shaven is usually the look I find most attractive. But stubble comes a close second. But beards? Just waiting for that fashion to pass and for men to look sexy again... ;)
Topic Why aren't you telling your spouse that you frequent sites like Lush?
31 Jan 2014 15:03
I'm really struck by everyone's honesty in their replies, and how different all our circumstances are. The common thread seems to be how Lush provides such necessary mind-space for so many of us. I feel lucky that I've been able to tell any boyfriends about Lush; and I do understand that its not that simple for everyone.
