Re: buying these items

The only thing I would say is buying boots without trying them on is not always wise. :D :lol: For the last five years I have had to buy safety work boots on line. I literally live in them, and am on my feet ten hours a day. I use the same eBay trader, same brand, and I have no problems. The three ...

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

Its all too easy to suffer from prepper fatigue folks. IT ( Insert your preferred flavour of SHTF here ) has been building up for quite a while now and the suspense is literally killing some people. It can be hard to switch off and chill out sometimes. I have no problem switching off. You get up in...

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

We noticed a spike in what I call “freezer filling” internet orders today at work. The actual footfall was a lot lower too - and proper social distancing was more evident. Thanks for the heads up.

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

I did a definitely final Aldi shop yesterday. Glad I did, they've got bread flour in again. I'll be going to Tesco later this evening and stocking up for me and Mum and then dropping her shopping off.
