    I’m going round @Doitforfree’s house for the alcohol and chocolate.

    Jaffa Cakes.

    Saves space having the biscuit part of the box in the same box as the cake part of the box, iyswim?

    Or, to put it another way, an argument about whether they’re biscuits or cakes* will distract from the impending doom of the virus.

    Up until the point at which I’ve eaten them all at least! :D

    *They’re biscuits.

    I think this covers all the essential requirements for an emergency.

    You're very welcome. Always masses of both here! I've just ordered two cases of wine to keep my supplies healthy.

    I bought a pack of dried milk the other day but I can't imagine ever using it. It's rather drink black tea and coffee but it felt like I should have some. In six months I'll be searching for recipes to use it up.

    We used powdered milk for several years when we were on our uppers in the early 80s, with a toddler. We qualified for a milk token per day for our son, so he got fresh milk. We were earning just slightly too much to get any cash help under Family Income Supplement.

    I intend to get out as much as possible and enjoy the quiet roads.

    As I'm 50 and have survived numerous apocalyptic scares over the years I consider myself to be living proof (literally) that the prophets of doom have a slight tendency to exaggerate.

    It's possible that I'm immortal I suppose, but how can you safely test this?
