Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Preps this week are seeing what I'm currently using out of physical stored preps so they can be replaced and financial prepping due to hubby and probably myself being furloughed. Staying in has proved that you can save money on fuel, eating out and generally the buying of stuff you don't need! So ho...

Re: So what have we learnt?

I've learnt that I don't fancy soup now the weather is warming 😂 but I'll be greatfull for the cans I'd I get desperate. I've had my knowledge of mental health highlighted.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Bought 2 tomato grow bags and 3 more bags of veg compost. Started the lettuce seeds in the propagator. Parsnips started off in kitchen roll tubes or 2 loo roll tubes on top of each other so hopefully I don't spoil the roots when I plant them out unlike last year when they all balled and twisted up. ...

Re: Lockdown?

Actually, yes lockdown is more than have u got enough food/pet food. There's only so much binge watching you can do :lol: If education establishments were shut so my job is shut down, that means I'd have to stay at home, well, my allotment would certainly be dragged up to optimum operating capacity....

Re: Kids prepping bag

That's quite a broad question. How old is the child in question? Do they have any pre existing medical issues and most importantly what sort of emergencies are you foreseeing. You don't want to freak your child out by giving them additional worries. Mental health reports have cited that even primary...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Preps this week involve getting a Costco card again. Not had one for a number of years now but hubby muttered to me about getting one and going shopping again. We also spoke about water supplies. He's always been happy that I prep and we talk about what if situations but he's not actively gone in fo...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Just doing a basic stock check and making sure my lists are up to date as I used up a few things from the back of the garage over the winter. Need to replace some coffee for example! Just want to make sure that I have a good month's worth of dried and tinned food just in case this virus does get out...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

I'm *so* regretting booking that dratted holiday. If I get smacked by Covid 19, or La Cumbre Vieja, or a Saharan sandstorm, can I ask you all to intone "we told you so" at an appropriate moment? :mrgreen: :roll: Enjoy your holiday either way - what'll be will be :D You have preps at home so when yo...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

The recent talk of folks having to leave the house in a hurry due to floods and storm damage, prompted me to check through my grab bag. Date check the antihistamines, check the torch batteries and check the spare set of clothes. Realised I only had 1 tissue in the pocket pack so that needed refillin...
