    Nothing, as I will be forced finally to empty the freezer of all its lurking horrors. I might even get round to soaking and using the aduki beans that I bought in an ill-judged fit of enthusiasm.

    I just relabelled my 'No Deal Brexit' stockpile as my 'Coronavirus Quarantine' stockpile. Job done.

    That's an idea, I shall mentally consider all the dull-but-worthy foodstuffs with exceedingly long shelf life and great resilience to being used to be my "emergency stash". That was tiring, I'll have a cup of tea and a bit of a rest now.

    No virus could survive in Irn Bru

    ....and if it did - it wouldn't sleep for a week.

    Use them as a face scrub, just grind them in a food processor or coffee grinder.

    If you are of a certain (middle) age, you may remember the Body Shop’s Japanese Washing Grains. These were simply very finely ground aduki beans!*

    *ok, possibly with some ground rice mixed in - but plain ground beans works fine and great as a hand exfoliator and softener!

    I don't need a quarantine box. I have my SAS manual which tells me how to skin a rabbit and how to forage for leaves and how to produce water from the atmosphere using a plastic bag and a bucket.

    A big bar of chocolate and a lot of alcohol. That virus won't stand a chance.

    Same here plus we have stocked up on hand gels and both freezers are full.

    I hear that shares in Dettol are soaring.

    I think it's OK to keep all those the hand gels at room temperature.
