Which is a point - I must check my stock of rat poison. If it all goes belly up in January, the hungry beggars will be invading my garden en masse again.
Don't poison them: That renders them inedible :)

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

Wish I could order a load of energy pseud :mrgreen: Covid induced lethargy? With all the free time, pacing around the house, the only thing I can find the enthusiasm for is procrastinating. I second the suggestion of cooking in batches. A full stove cooks almost as quick as a small pan. Or with a b...

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

Just fine tuning my whittling in readiness for Xmas ;) ;) ;) LMAO. Love it. So miss not having a thank you button. Meanwhile, I just converted a joint of lamb into a HUGE batch of ready to eat casseroles in the freezer. I'm torn between the smaller freezer space just needed for the meat, compared t...

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

I'm researching on the internet and getting lost down rabbit holes. I need to make a list and stick to it. I'm still vac packing. More water under the bath. 25l container filled and in the wardrobe. So basically lots of flapping but not much action! To help you get on track... Just imagine, you wer...

Re: How many times can you use a disposable FFP3 mask?

Or....... Does reusing single use ppe contribute to the risk of contracting an infection? I wouldn't want to keep wearing some of these fashion accessory face masks for more than a day without machine washing. Nor would I even consider using a paper disposable one for anything more than a dash into...

Re: Storing pasta

I've put my dry pasta in brown paper bags and then vacuum sealed. I have checked today and a lot of them have failed seals as the pasta has poked through. This is penne and the twirls. How do you store yours? Twirls are hellishly sharp and happily burst vac packs. To be honest, I trust in the origi...

Re: What have we become?

In my mind the response was simple - if BOTH sets of families were absolutely *certain* that they'd isolated fully, taking ALL precautions (hand-washing when required etc.) for a *minimum* of two weeks, then in my books they would have been completely fine to mix families. However, it's those folks...
