Good to hear Panther and see you back in UKP.
And Andy, I do not know what you mean re chocolate not lasting. Really I don't. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Hiya Panther, good to hear you're doing OK

As for chocolate, I believe it evaporates as there never seems to be any in the house even though I bought some just the other day :oops:

Welcome back, Panther :) really glad to hear you're doing so well.

Evaporating chocolate **nods sagely** ...

My huge great supermarket shop has been delivered, and I've ordered another slightly smaller one for the same time next week, with a different supermarket :mrgreen: not "grey man", not really, but tins of pulses and quite a few other things are way cheaper than at Sainsbo. Some Sainsbo flavours are preferable, grrr.

I've got another 2 boxes of coffee pods. Not proper prepper-style but I need the stuff to keep me sane & functioning. :mrgreen:

Partial to the coffee pods myself Lil, I had about a months worth until we had builders round and it turned into a weeks worth. :shock:
Will be steadily building the pods back up. I've never tried but there must be a way of getting a decent cup of coffee out of them if the lecky goes off.

Prioritys in order !

Moved my stuff around in the workshop today generator serviced just needs topping up with fuel ready for winter (run it down on the allotment so it's got fresh fuel for winter)

Just back off our holidays. Put a bit of off road driving under my belt in the car to see how it handled on legal green lanes very sure footed even on wet mud

Added a few more gas cartridges to my stockpile too...

Still awaiting a visit from the fire service a year after the chip Pan fire so shed is tidy incase they want a good look (all stocks are within legal maximum capacitys but they won't like the tumble drier in there ;). Least it's a old UK made white knight not a indicit / whirlpool / Hotpoint incendiary device :/

It's up on a stand and the bottom removed so I can remove fluff from the working parts
If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

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

First mistake offering builders the good stuff... Cheap coffee and tea or they get Sod all done :o

I'm an egalitarian provider of wets Andy, although the bloody prols take it with sugar. :roll:

Funny you should say that , when i go to someone's house for the first time to do a job i'm often asked " tea , two sugars? " as if it's obligatory for builders to have sugar in their tea .
We did one job a fair few years ago where the clients wife brought us cake on an almost daily basis , but then they were very happy with the work.

I've not taken sugar in my tea or coffee since I was about 10, a throw away comment from my dad about "kids" needing sugar was enough for me to feel the need to be a big boy about not taking sugar in my tea.

We've been providing bickies too from time to time, despite them saying they weren't bothered, they've made a dent in them. :lol: I'm the same in fairness, would never buy them myself but from time to time if I see them winking at me in the cupboard I'll tan half a packet. :o

Tea or coffee, white, two is considered 'NATO standard' so maybe no surprise that some see it as the 'go to'.
