was thinking tonight after work and done my own gardening round,while stitting in the hot tub chilling out could the water be filtered in a SHTF case from the hot tub???we do have a few rain water barrels off the log sheds roofs and i do know of a fresh water spring within 10 minute walk of our place,but the gallons the hot tub holds could it be used for drinking water???
I don't know why but i was reminded of the joke about the man who gave his wife a bath in champagne for her birthday but being canny decided to but it back in the bottles afterwards only to find there was a pint more in the bath than he had put in.... :D

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine

I'm in the process of buying my first car at last. Shielding is slowly coming to an end, but I don't feel anywhere near safe with the idea of using public transport again. It looks like I could buy a car contact free and I've checked the one I want with someone I trust and they think its a good idea. From Monday I can form a support bubble with another household and that household will be my Mum. She's suffered a lot being on her own and I need to get round there. So I'm waiting on a reply from the dealership to find out what options I have to look at the car.

Mouse, thats really interesting - I'm starting to wonder about it, I must say. Its a really long time since I've driven, though :( Luckily the increase in the traffic won't be too much of a problem if I do go for it - I learned to drive in London, around Old Street and Bayswater :mrgreen: Please update what your decision will be.

Well I've put a deposit down :mrgreen: I can't go see it until the weird car chain is complete - the 'former' owner still has it and is waiting for their new car so they can be swapped. Lockdown played a complicated game on the dealership :lol:
I only passed my test the day before work decided to send us all home, so I'm a bit wary about getting in another car, but it's an automatic so at least there's that! I keep thinking about how much more freedom I'll have with a car. It'll make my life a whole lot easier.
