I know it’s selfish, but having this place to ourselves is bliss. I was dreading Easter weekend and the summer holidays. Now it’s just eight or ten of us, no screaming kids, no queue for the showers and as a bonus the washing machine is free @nitram
Funny you should say that @nitram, I decided on an experiment this afternoon and took out a chair, some cushions and a fleece and then sat out in an open space. First one lady came out and I called her over, then another. We sat well apart and chatted. I said it seemed like a good thing to do and wouId also mean we can ask if anyone has anything spare if one of us is short. I’ve offered shampoo, conditioner and soap as I had rather a stockpile (thanks to mums love of buying) and I’m still working my way through it all a year later. I’ve seen two others later today and told them we will be meeting tomorrow at 15.30. It’s a “bring your own” coffee / tea / whatever you fancy meet up lolGiven that good weather continues is a site BBQ with vino/CM/? possible , social distancing could make this somewhat unusual!
Hmm - got quite a bit left - there are 4 of us in the house as wellWith the amount of times we are told we should wash our hands nowadays you should get through the remainder in double quick time!
With a nurse for a mother, hand washing was and is a “normal” activity in my home. I’m still astounded at the apparent novelty it is to some. Hence my offering my excess to those around meWith the amount of times we are told we should wash our hands nowadays you should get through the remainder in double quick time!
Perhaps we don't use a lot of soap - most of what has been used was for pre washing muddy cycling kit (cyclo cross) the only way to get mud out. I have fancy soap from body shop/lush/xmas markets from kids for baths/showers, kids use shower gel for shower, OH has used it for daily shave, and it is by ensuite sink. Downstairs toilet has mini body shop soaps or hotel acquired ones.Oh please ... I don't think I can bear to be carting it around for that long. I gave a few bags away and I still have boxes left ...
