Re: How are you preparing for Brexit?

Well , the Brexit med stash has come in handy. Mrs J has had to start taking ‘Flu’ capsules as she feels like ####. I will replace that with two more I think. Glad I got off my backside on that one. Reading the news now, about EU emphatically refusing further negotiations, emergency centres,haulage ...

Re: How are you preparing for Brexit?

Re: How are you preparing for Brexit?

Added a few extra bottles of wine and spirits to the emergency stores today.

Stocking up.

So the whole B##### thing has had me rounding out our stores.We are where we want to be right now.The issue has focused our needs,and made us realise what we may be short of.It also made us realise that we let our preps slip in general,and that had any event occurred,we were woefully under prepped.N...
