Deeps,I have one of those little LED jobs on my keys.Perfect for locking up and getting in the car at daft o' clock!
In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life: It goes on.

I got a 10 pack of them from China a while back. Gave a few away, have a few dotted around (including rucksack pockets). In my pockets I've got a few more robust options, plastic things tend to get broken sooner or later. The one I keep to hand on my laptop table has a wee 'rats tail' on the end, even if its pitch black I can feel down for it. For the price they're handy, here's a link, the cheapest I can see right now.

That time of night! It’s the start of the working day don’t you know? :lol:

Joking aside, a simple torch, to hand, is a blessing at the most unusual times.
I was thinking of you as I typed that :lol: I remember you writing about your work schedule!
Lidl last week

I had one a few years ago which was 2 led rows X 3 long they had both in last week for £5.99 or 2 for £10

Since they put led street lights up there is very little light in our front garden ..


Excuse the rough opsec blanking

If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

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

Well you already know the basics ...... food,water shelter

food you can sus out yourself , i've no idea what you like to eat.
water is easy in this country, bottle from the tap or rainwater collection.
you've a new shelter, workout the weak points and fix them.

after that its all padding to make it more comfortable.

good luck mate, wish you all the best.
Thanks, rainwater collection is on the list. Great to have and want to start planting my own veg next year

Welcome back. My brother was in your place a few years back,so I get it. Once you have some spare grub put by,an alternative way to cook,light a room up ,you will be well on the way.One advantage to your situation,is that you now know what NOT to waste money on. :lol:
For sure! I have learnt and learnt the hard way. Better organised and know what to get and not to get. Feels good to be back

Welcome back, I'm glad you're on your feet again.

At this time of year, as well as the basics of food, water and shelter, light, as jansman points out, is valuable. I have a few little torches scattered about the house, and I've used them at the oddest times. I had to leave the house at 4.30am recently, and without a torch, I couldn't have seen the keyhole to lock the door. I don't usually leave at that time of the night, so I hadn't realised :oops: :lol: Helps during powercuts, and many other emergencies/non-emergencies.
Great idea to have some around. Never know when you may need one. Power cuts are on the “reason I’m preparing” list

Thanks for sharing. They are handy to have and easy to store.

Welcome back, glad things are better for you. With the future uncertain for all of us, you couldn't have re-started at a better time. Medicines seem to be something the media has pegged as potentially difficult post brexit. Maybe check your painkiller, wound dressing supplies etc. You'll know what sort of meds you use and good luck
