Re: Self Isolation

I have a motorcycle in the garage that needs stripping, the frame repainting and then reassembling carefully - that'll keep me busy for however long this goes on!

Yes. After all this is over, I can see supply chains being analysed in a very different light...

You got a good spade and fork?
Yep, a few of each that we inherited with the house.

Re: Emptying the supermarket shelves

I think it's a "confidence" thing. The Government say the supply chain is up to it to ease panic buying, regardless of whether the supply chain is actually up to it - but what's the alternative?

Allotment the 2nd

After a bit of nagging about how I'm not getting out to meet people (which is true, I work at home and so haven't met a huge amount of people since moving to the Midlands) and the encroachment on my allotment to the rear of the house for more "gardenish" things, I've killed two bird with one stone a...

Re: Emptying the supermarket shelves

Crazy isn't it - we buy loo roll in bulk by mail order so have been very well stocked for a while, but the local Morrisons was looking like a war zone last week. Unfortunately, as a home worker, I don't actually get time off work by being home! Ah well, at least there's the allotment out the back :)...

No group hugs for sure!

Mrs. Viper works for a University and has seemingly brought it home.

Re: Emptying the supermarket shelves

I'm in self-quarantine as of today!

Don't feel too bad - definitely up to some digging and hoeing.

Re: Emptying the supermarket shelves

Madness isn't it - M and I thought it was a joke until we went to (a particular Northern supermarket) last night and there was barely a toilet roll in the place. We order our rolls 50 at a time from a company called "Who Gives a Crap" so we're well sorted, but it was still something of a surprise! I...

However, I have not yet found a purpose or role for the highly invasive little naked ape that now dominates the earth.
That's because there isn't one - but here we are, I guess.

Re: Self sufficientish 2020

Well, it's a glorious morning here and it's reminding me why we live here. :iconbiggrin: After my last post, during the 2 hour trip down the road we did some serious talking and have come up with a short term plan. It won't resolve most of our issues and, longer term, we're still moving but it will...

Re: Karen and Pete's allotment

The Parish Council around here have just started recommissioning loads of dilapidated allotments and offering them up at £15PA for a half plot or £30 for a full plot. I'm considering moving some of the lower-attention stuff down there and freeing up a bit more space out back for veggies :)
