Anyone Been Shopping Lately?

Recommended Posts

😂😂

My other half texted me the other night, as she was stopping at Tesco and wanted to know what we actually needed.

"Just the essentials, love."

She came home with two punnets of grapes, some firelighters and a box of hair dye!

Did a big stock up at the end of January/beginning of February.

Bog paper, rice, pasta, curry and pasta sauces, beans, tinned meat and fish etc - all the stuff that was predictably going to run short.

Just been doing a normal shop since then and rotating the perishables like eggs, fresh onions and carrots.

My local supermarkets have pretty much been stripped bare but Asda did well with my weekly shop delivery yesterday - although there were a few absences and silly substitutions.

I managed to get out when the virus first broke, bought 1,500 rolls of bog paper and 150 bottles of hand sanitiser, thought I would be ok but my sister is coming to stay as she lives in a post office with her daughter’s family and it’s not a good environment for protecting her from infection, so I went out today to get some more bog roll and the shelves are empty, bloody idiot hoarders and panic buyers.

Well Elton, Grapes are good when visiting hospital, Fire lighters are good for pyromaniacs  & hair dye is good for changing one's Identity should one not want to be Identified as a "bloody idiot hoarder and panic buyer".

Not been out for 3 weeks (as in shopping in town) been trying to get solpadeine max online to no avail (about the only thing i can take) even my daughter cannot get it and she works in a chemist!

Apart from that can last for months its a great excuse to use up the freezer contents! i think when things are back to normal i may rethink repackaging the new stock as the original packaging allows the contents to get freezer burn ,a vacuumed sealed bag would be better!

Made a nice loaf out of cotswold crunch today very nice! just wish i had stockpiled butter! Plenty of frozen marge but its not the same

Just got back from a ‘pensioners only’ hour at a local supermarket. There are some young looking ‘pensioners’ in our town! 

The usual no bog roll, uht milk, pasta, tissues, etc. They are rationing some stuff though, only three bread items, 3 milk, and surprisingly only four tins  of vegetables  per customer. It seems that they have started rationing cigs. One poor chap had to make do with only buying 400. When I heard the price of over £200, I was glad I packed up five years ago. 

On a slightly lighter note, it seems that the research into covid19 has produced some interesting side results. Over the years we have had Hong Kong flu, Spanish flu, Asian flu, etc. Now it appears that the strange driving habits of some drivers of Audi’s, BMW’s, Merc’s, etc, is caused by a disease called German carowner virus.

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

It sewms people have gone onto a tissue paper diet!

The food situation would be as normal if people had sim

Ply carried on as normal, infact there would most likely be too much as when your no feeling well you don't exactly feel like eating!

The amount of food which is going to be wasted is criminal, although the shops won't be complaining!!
