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: So what have we learnt?

Me and mine are far from unique,and we are better placed than many.None of us like uncertainty though,do we? Much how I feel.

Re: Lockdown?

Your offers are most kind Bosworth, but thankfully not necessary. Just got to be careful with the tooth. Supply- wise we are absolutely fine. It was just fresh stuff that concerned me ( a little).
