Re: Ready-seasoned wood?

Got the details of fixtures/fittings from the vendor today & they've offered the wood store & wood for £50 which seems fair to me, he mentioned when I viewed that the wood store contained about a winter's worth of wood. I won't push my luck but he might even end up leaving some of the unsplit wood t...

Re: Ready-seasoned wood?

Wow, I certainly won't be spending that sort of money for that sort of return so thanks for the heads-up!

The community group I was referring to probably isn't a million miles away from you either, Moira/Donnisthorpe I believe.

Re: Ready-seasoned wood?

Thanks all for the most sensible suggestions - I think my brain is too frazzled at the moment for some of them to have even occurred to me! I did hope that they'd leave at least some behind, I know they don't have a new property to purchase so yes, at the right time, I may well offer to save them th...

Ready-seasoned wood?

After much thought (I shall probably post another topic) I've decided that moving to another house with a new mortgage in a significantly better environment with MUCH more space both inside & out is worth far more to me/us mentally than a mortgage paid off on the current place which I was looking to...

Re: in need of

I did ask at Amy local bakers once, they only have the smaller buckets & tend to re-use them themselves, making scrapers out of the lids etc. apparently.

Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

I had a tidy at the weekend & pulled out a 6-pack of UHT that I already knew would be out of date but hadn't got around to shifting (we don't really use it but I'd rather have some & chuck it when out of date than get caught short, even though I have a bit of powdered as well. I think I'll open the ...

Re: 'manufactured' emergency food packs

I've bought some of their sample packs (individual servings in pouches with 7yr shelf life). So far I've tried the scrambled eggs & chilli concarne. The chilli was actually quite tasty though in future I'd send to under-fit the water & add more later if needs be, easier than the other way around. Th...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Worth me pointing out that I have a motorbike in the garage that I haven't had the chance to take out for 2yrs, decided to get it MOT'd just before winter and it started up (and ran) first time no problems on it's 2yr old tank of petrol (which was pretty full) so it isn't quite so cut & shut perhaps.

Re: Keeping unfrozen water in the car

I just remembered what it was that was on my mind about it in the first place - last winter I had a Water-to-Go bottle half-full in the cup holder & it froze, knackering the filter. Obviously a much smaller volume of water is easier to freeze but I knew there was a reason it was on my mind...
