Re: Will we end up in lockdown again?

My wife and I are wearing masks when we go out. Hand hygiene is second nature to me,being in the food game. It isn’t difficult. One of my more senior customers bitched and moaned every time he had to queue,and about wearing a mask. Yesterday he was back wearing one,and it turns out that his wife is...

Re: Will we end up in lockdown again?

I'm guessing yes the data is going the wrong way....

But to what extent

My personal guess is going to be the plan B

Then vaccine passport no jab no playing out

Probably tell the at high risk to shield

Probably shut down / limit movement in pubs / restaurants.

Re: given the news over the past few weeks

I don't think I have enough fuel for any of the stoves that I have - I can collect twigs etc for the insulated rocket stove, sure, but I haven't been taking the fuel situation seriously enough. Can't check on that before Sunday ... I'll see. Check out home bargains / b&m just got 4 bottles of kerro...

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

Got my rear brakes done this morning. My service in August had said they would need replacing within 6 months, and I wanted them done before the worst of winter arrives. The health check afterwards suggests I need new front tires in the not too distant future. Might have to wait till after Christma...

Re: Rising energy prices mitigation

I think decorators' caulk is what I've got, Andy - I'm just used to calling it sealant. I've got an old piece of ceramic tile to practice making a line of the stuff, but I won't be able to use masking tape, not really - the pipes for the radiator on that wall are in the way. But of course, they'll ...

Re: Rising energy prices mitigation

- I've been watching youtube videos about how to use a sealant gun - there are big gaps in a couple of rooms between the top of the skirting board and the wall. Most of the prep work now done, I'll see how it goes today. Use decorators caulk... It's water based so if you make a mess it scrapes up a...
