Re: north east england

Welcome to the forum - I'm glad you got by so well with the effects from Storm Arwen, good for you. As you're a nanna, you're probably not the "run away to the hills" type dreamer, especially with 3 kids, and you sound like you're already doing really well. But there's probably lots still to learn o...

Re: Self Care

Interesting article in The Guardian today about non-covid general health issues during the pandemic https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/dec/02/the-pandemic-body-how-the-covid-era-changed-us-from-hair-loss-to-weight-gain Only a few action points there, just an awareness that all these things are...

... perhaps you should try to remember how to give link to something that backs up what you are saying as frankly the claim that over 45's are off work appears to be nonsense. I don't know anyone that age who isn't working if they can.
+1, for sure.

Good stuff, Mouse!

In the interests of fairness, I should point out that the proper Lloyds discount code, for the full website, arrived today, so I'll be looking at that tomorrow.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

Just ordered my first set of FFP2 masks, sadly from Amazon - Lloyds Pharmacy website didn't want to give me the 10% discount they offered me off their own bat. Also got some steri strips, and then a little tub of Vaseline to get me over the free delivery limit (Martin Lewis has a link to a bit of so...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

I just harvested the last of, and bulk of my beetroots and I'm pleased as punch! :D ... This is the biggest crop of anything I've ever grown. I know. Pathetic*, aren't I, but I feel like a proper gardener now. Have carefully rinsed them and set aside in a basket to let them dry out. *Took a photo, ...

Two really good points there, GillyBee. This is the NHS page about how to keep an exclusion diet: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/food-intolerance/ Plus the one that belongs to WebMD https://www.webmd.com/allergies/allergies-elimination-diet Paul Lam has a free tai chi lesson on you tube https://www.y...

Re: Self Care

Continuing the honey theme, I found an article today in the Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/nov/28/bee-aware-do-you-know-what-is-in-that-cheap-jar-of-honey telling consumers to be wary of the very cheapest brands available. It implied there might be a problem with supermarket own ...

Thank you so much, Jenny, I'll work on that as soon as I've done another 20 minutes in the garden.

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

This is an old thread! But still relevant. I mentioned on here about buying some N95 masks - went on to Amazon just now, and I find they're actually FFP2. Mentioned it all to my sister this morning - she already has 40 x N95 masks. I'm not the only prepper in the family :lol: I'll get some of those,...
