No Loo Rolls.
« on: Oct 09, 2019, 12:12:29 PM »

Hmmmmmm, Well I'm not sure how true this is, OR, if it's another scare story. But I'm glad I did as I said several months ago and built up a stock of toilet rolls. Did anyone else? ???
I was at Tesco this morning for a few things and noticed the shelf that holds them was looking a bit low of stock. :o
I'm also building up a stock of dog food, I can't explain to the hairy one why he's got no dinner, so I'm making sure he has.. 8)

Yes I wondered that too Sparky But, what if it's not? Anyways I just bought a pack every time I was in Tesco, same with the dog food. None of it will go to waste, all will be used up.

The Remainer businesses are relying on panic-buyers to make their ridiculous predictions happen.

Well if it comes to it, having lived  in poorest London during the war, I don't think I saw  a loo roll till was about 14, so I will enjoy the nostalgic experience of  reading cut up sheets of the Daily Mirror, before using them.

I wouldn't call what I do panic buying, just an extra pack of toilet rolls and an extra packet of dog biscuits a week for the last few months. No harm in taking a few precautions just incase. As you say Butterpuff, we aren't the only ones. Personally I hope it does turn out to be all scare stories then I won't be buying dog food or toilet rolls for a wee while. ;D

We buy ours in bulk from Amazon.

The only downside is that they can't be delivered very discreetly.

Still, they keep us going for a bit.  ;D ;D ;D

Yes, that's the main point of buying the Guardian.

There is a cafe in New Brighton, Wirral called 'Remember When'.  It is full of old photographs which brought back happy memories and old china teacups etc.  When I went to the loo I just burst out laughing.  There were old potties and squares of newspaper hanging from a piece of string next to the toilet.
Everything I can't find is in a totally secure place.

Never mind if we run out of loo rolls, Aldi will come to the rescue.
I'm looking forward to summer, the rain gets warmer.
