And I have heard of toilet paper being described as a 'valuable asset'! As was sanitizer and pasta! The world has gone crazy.Some people must have run out of toilet paper or be storing it as an assert.
There have been reports of fatbergs consisting of kitchen roll, shortage of cooking oils in the shops may contribute.
Thanks I will call them. Trouble is, they both have adult kids living at home and I worry they could be unwittingly passing the virus round their family and on to us.
That's something good to look forward too,I was a pessimist for many years but changed the way I looked at life only a few months ago as it ended up causing me more stress as everything looked bleak,I now look for the positives in life and feel much better for itThanks I will call them.

I've decided I will let them come - shame to deprive them of their income - and stay well away as much as possible, leaving their money in the hall to collect on their way out. I'm luckier than some and can take my husband out for a short drive till they've done the living room.
Oh well, I suppose it gives us as carers a lot more to think about than the mind-numbing daily grind. Not meaning to trivulise. It will be awful not seeing family, especially grandchildren, for the forseeable future. A new great- grandson is due in June so looks like our first meeting with him will be though the patio window. Just praying the pregnancy goes well for our grandaughter
After all my fretting, the cleaner called to cancel - her cousin has the virus and they'd been in contact with each other. Looks like a mucky house for a few weeks , though I can do enough myself to at least make it look like the cleaners have been!That's something good to look forward too,I was a pessimist for many years but changed the way I looked at life only a few months ago as it ended up causing me more stress as everything looked bleak,I now look for the positives in life and feel much better for it
That was good how long ago did you book the order?I am quite relieved, my Tesco order arrived this afternoon and although there were several substitutions I was very surprised that I received most of the things I ordered, the missing items were soap and hand wash. My nearest supermarket is 40 miles away so I rely on the delivery especially now when I can't take mum with me.
Who can remember?This morning I heard that people who bought multiple packages of toilet roll at Costco are now trying to return them - presumable because sanity returned - but Costco is refusing to allow the returns. Very unusual for Costco who have an extremely easy return policy. But I think in this case there are concerns of contamination. Plus, serves those people right
There is the video of the American man who figured out how long one pack of toilet roll from Costco would last. He's quite funny. I saw it on TV but couldn't find a link.
Ok thanks,I will have to look in to that,it would be nice for me to avoid people at the shops as I have type 2 diabetes,but we still have 8 carers entering our house each day so I can't do much about thatI usually book a slot each week but at the moment I am booking ahead to ensure a weekly slot.
