Fireworks. I hate seeing my Dog being scared. I will get medication from the Vet but idiots set off fireworks from the end of September right through until the New Year.

Agree totally. I would ban them from public sale. It's madness to hand this stuff out freely to morons. I know a guy with cerebral palsy who has more than once had utter ****s throw fireworks at him in his wheelchair. I'm sorry if my suggestion makes me a killjoy, but tough. Go to a licensed public display.

Couldn't agree more.I once lived. @Northolt on the canal. Our mooring backed on to some temple or other. From early Sept till after New Year was like living in a war zone.

Its a yes from me. Ban them from public sale.

99% of the bellends that think its fun to let them off in public probably don't even know the history behind Bonfire/Guy Fawkes night.

It is definitely time to ban the sale of fireworks to the general public. I'm amazed it still happens at all, given how sensitive we've become over here about the sale of anything potentially dangerous.

Special licenses should be made available to anyone wanting to put on a display, because trusting people to use them responsibly has never worked. Deeply antisocial.

I do this but then I use one of those gun things at Tesco so you can scan everything on the way round.
If all goes well and it doesn't ask for a service check, I am out in less time than someone with 10 items.

Anyone who lets them off other than the allotted times on 5/11 or closet Saturday night should be punished with a rocket up the arse.

I like fireworks, especially going to a container on the A127 and doing a ton on things that go bang.

Three things really. Two I despise and one I love

First one is letting myself get out of shape. I hate that I've gotten comfortable with someone and consequently put on a bout 10kg. Have made a promise to myself that I will be in decent shape again by Christmas.

2nd is how hard it is getting back into shape, utterly hate the process of losing it. So much easier to keep in shape than regain it.

3rd one is I love when I feel like I'm getting somewhere, feel so much better over the past couple of weeks as a result of eating healthier and working out again

I hear you, tubby.

I know that everyone will have a view, or advice, or counter advice, and you're going to get bored hearing it. But......

I had put on a bit of extra timber over the last few years, and about 3 months ago I started on the 5:2 diet. I love food more than life itself, but I actually found it a piece of cake :)

I've lost about a stone and a half, and now I'm totally awesome.
