Sorry to hear you have been housebound for quite some time Elliementary. At least you are ahead of us all in dealing with it as best you can. I hope things improve for you.I've been housebound for quite some time, so, apart from worrying about running out of pot noodle (who said that?!) and caviar, life is much the same. That is, if you don't watch the news, or read the papers. Then I get on my soapbox, and have a good rant about the behaviour of the idiot masses.
Mr E has been cutting my hair for over a year, now, which is great, as I can't sit for long periods (nor stand, so I'm mostly propped up in bed, with a shed-load of pillows), so he does the back one day, and the top and sides, another. I keep it very short on the back, with a bit more length, top and sides. No longer have to blow-dry: hooray!
I've had a series of emails from Wool Warehouse, advising customers about shipping delays, as they have staff off, and a mountain of orders. People keeping busy, in their self-isolation. I already have a good stash, so plenty to keep me going.
Uncertain times ahead, but Twilight said, we will get through this.
that cat is just too cute for words! A perfect example of cats loving small protected spaces.
how did he know the perfect name for the show? It sums up both Q fashion and Q presenter.Haven't had much to smile about lately but I just got back from my alleged keyworker work (cleaning an empty school!) and Mr CC said "Hey, you're missing Morning Vile with Kathy Tayler". Spilt my coffee
Don't be silly...they all have breadmaker machines.I’ve been amazed at the sell out of flour from a nation whose idea of cooking is either pot noodle or heating up a microwave meal.
You won't stay on my list of favourite men.
I agree in a way Strato, I said to the husband rationing people to two or three items will make them have to go back the shop more often, but if people just bought what they normally buy then they’d probably only need to go every week or every other week like they normally would where as now I think the people are going the shop more often to see if they can get that milk, tea bags or bread in the shop because it’s sold out on line.It seems to me that if you only buy the things you really need and don't stockpile, then you will have to go shopping much more often, going directly against the govt's advice to stay at home.
As I've said on here several times, there is no joined up thinking by the gov't.
I haven't done any stockpiling, but as I don't have a car I've always kept a reasonable stock of food at home in case of illness etc. Also I can't do a big weekly shop without a car as I can't carry it home.
As an example, I use about a dozen cartons of milk a week, as I have it on cereal and make 1 litre yogurt every day. So if I am limited to 3 cartons, I will have to go shopping nearly every day, when I am told to go as little as possible. BTW I have always bought a box of 12 cartons at a time, which I can get into my "granny trolley" and will last the week.
Five years ago I developed yeast intolerance, which was horrible because I love carbs & bread's my favourite, so gave my bread maker to our son in law. One of my gifts to my Mr T for his 60th was a bread making course, he's very good if messy, & last night he said he's going to attempt croissants!Don't be silly...they all have breadmaker machines.
Yep, that was where I bought mine. It's in our daughter's garage & they do use it, only issue being that the recipes need dried milk powder & that's an endangered species.QVC used to sell bread makers just think of all those who bought never used and have them dust-covered in the garage and years of watching Mary Berry now have the chance to actually use them.
