Update;

Saturday; scale not powering up

Is this a scale for weighing things?
Could you not use a balance and weights?

It also labels them, which is the main issue. It looks like it'll need a more expensive new part, but if the problem doesn't present itself when the engineer is here, it's difficult to know if it's worth spending the money. Although now it's done it again it probably will be a case of replacing the next part in the chain.

Presumably, if I suggested a pen, then I'd get a slap...

No, you'd get a pen

I know a few of you sell foodstuffs. What do I need to do/know to get started?

You might know that Willow is 100% tubefed and has a blended diet, essentially whatever we have whizzed up with added good fats, oils, honey, seeds, all sorts. She requires extra calories because it takes so much more effort for every movement, even breathing is a chore to Willow.

I am contemplating a baby food style affair, organic pouches/jars with extra calories and nutrition that children like Willow need, a complete food but real food, not formula. Often various intolerences go hand in hand with neuro-disabilities, these could be carered for too.

It's a growing market, at an alarming rate.


Fee, worth a look at last weeks Dragon's Den, some very pertinent advice and comments about shelf life.

Quite possibly, totally out the loop on here, what do you do?

Further update, for those who don't use facebook, it went again so I called them out again and they replaced the next, expensive part. Fortunately, as the scale is out of warranty, it was a part that has been replaced before which is subject to it's own warranty.

Probably Virgin, cold pressed Rapeseed Oil. Made in Yorkshire from localish grown seed. I'm told it is healthier than olive oil.
