Re: So what have we learnt?

... Tired and emotionally drained if I am honest. And a little anxious for the future. I think you have got to be one heartless S.O.B. to not feel that way On the flip- side,it's nice to be home with my wife,getting stuff done etc. Me and mine are far from unique,and we are better placed than many....

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

I'm very late trying to organise the veg garden and I cannot get seeds at all, unless at silly prices. Sellers on ebay asking £4 postage for a pkt of seeds :shock: All the sites I usually go to like Realseeds are closed until they catch up. Everything is out of stock. Starting to panic now because ...

Re: So what have we learnt?

The altruism/ruthlessness thing is interesting. The details are too boring to go into, but I learnt (on the cruise, of all places) that the cutting off caring about other people to my own detriment has gone, completely: I would be able to be ruthless, if there were a collapse. I also think that bec...

Re: So what have we learnt?

My house is in continual uproar - every storage area is temporary and subject to change. I knew this, and I was hoping that this year I'd have the time to sort it, and do a centralised stocktake that I could keep up to date. Yep, got the time now :( The altruism/ruthlessness thing is interesting. Th...

Re: Lockdown?

That *is* worrying about dentists ... I have clove oil, I have a pack of those cheap little instruments, which contain a rubber thing to give your teeth an extra clean ... I'll carry on being careful. Last year, the dentist said my X rays are identical to 3 years ago, so thats good. I'm over the age...

Re: Lockdown?

First person in my town to die of coronavirus was two days ago, an 82 year old man with complications. And yesterday, when I was out for my single walk, I saw an ambulance drawn up outside a house two streets away from me. Nothing in the local paper's website today, and it could be many things, of c...

Re: Disposal of waste....

Yep, I'd say thats about it. Keeping the lid on your bin with a couple (or more) of bricks is a good idea too. If "everything else" also includes rags (stained t shirts, threadbare sheets, etc etc) they can go to any charity shop that takes rags - I'm wearing things to destruction at the moment, and...

Re: Exercising at Home

This lady is a pilates instructor a couple of towns over from me, and the video is her solution to all the classes being cancelled. I've yet to do everything :oops: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6eNMAtEpxQ
