Won't the neighbours be upset when they find the hutch door open and Snowball gone?
I went and bought my supplies this morning: dried pasta plus sauces; flour for the bread maker plus powdered yeast; tins of fruit, potatoes, peas, carrots, mushrooms, tomatoes, kidney beans; chicken pieces in the freezer; toilet rolls; plenty of onions and garlic.
It's a start.
If it is not needed over the next couple of months, it will roll over to help prepare for "no deal" at the end of the year.
Some very amusing answers here. Especially liking the Irn Bru as virus killer from @peakster, ‘husband-in-a-box’ from @BelleDuJour and the visual image of a freezer packed full of hand sanitiser from @LondonCanary
Well, it’ll keep him out of trouble!
Don't forget ammunition
Hmmm...eggs don’t keep....
If this turns out to be a zombie apocalypse type of virus, would one be justified in pinching next-door’s (live) chickens if anything happens to them?
Asking for a friend...
Be careful, the chickens may be infected too.
It has its advantages!
I was recently back in the UK and brought back with me a box of 12 Creme Eggs and four packets of Tunnocks Caramel Wafers so that's what's going into mine.
Wot, no cuddly toy?
A lady in one of our local shops yesterday told me in all seriousness that Dettol wipes 'kill the Coronavirus and everything else is a waste of time'. So now we know...
It won't be the coronavirus that kills us, it'll be the ignorance.
Really? At last a use for aduki beans! You can store fresh eggs in water glass solution, but you have to get the mix right.
She’s read the pack where it says....
Kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses**
Kills Cold and Flu viruses**
**Flu virus (Influenza - Type A H1N1), Cold viruses (Human Coronavirus and RSV)
Eggs keep for over a month. But hens are better. And you can eat the hens if you run out of feed. I've bought two bags of layers' pellets, and a bag of wheat, which is their treat, but I'm going to keep it for us to eat just in case. I'm certainly not eating pellets!
Yes! As well as being the best use of your otherwise unwanted aduki beans, it will also give you the reassurance that were this virus to make you breathe your last at least you’d have a lovely complexion!
*off to google storing eggs in a glass now*
You can hard boil and then pickle eggs, they form part of a balanced meal with a pint of Mackeson's stout.
Don't forget loo rolls and tissues!
I have enough flour (various types) to make bread, pasta and cakes to last several weeks. I just need to stock up on cereals and long-life milk ... and paracetemol. The latter is a faff as they only let you buy two packets at a time.
Sadly my negotiations with Christina Hendricks' agent have fallen through, so I'm off to buy a maxi pack of baked beans.
The usual food stuffs plus drinking water and pet food. Also added extra soap,shampoo, toothpaste and washing powder.bleach etc. If we're going to be quarantined at least we can keep clean.
