    You just live too near to too many karnts!

    Btw, on a totally different subject, if anyone is struggling to find bottles of hand sanitiser, we've just been to Boots and obtained some, where I was reliably informed that they're getting huge deliveries of such in every morning, and which by 10.30am will be available to purchase at till points ONLY [restricted to two per person] until stocks last.

    So if you're able to get out and are near a Boots store, bear that in mind

    Yeah, but every village has an idiot, it's tradition. What, you don't know who your village idiot is? I don't know what to say

    Only kidding mate - given the choice I'd rather be with the village people.

    Yes, and it'd give you a chance to wear that bondage gear.

    Don't need a reason, this is Chorley after all.

There seems to be a friendlier atmosphere.

    Bloody awful experience a couple of days ago in a Supermarket in Ipswich though. I went out to get some fresh vegetables, milk etc (village farm shops have been emptied by people from town driving out here during the early stages of panic buying).
    In the supermarket there was a group of six women gossiping/having a laugh at the end of one of the aisles, I stopped to look at the chocolate and a woman (wearing face mask, so she was ok ) was impatient and bumped in to me as she stretched to get what she wanted.

    At the checkout queue (clearly marked with distance warnings) the woman in front of me was only a foot or so behind the chap in front - he turned and, very politely, told her to keep her distance and she seemed to be offended that he should be concerned.

    Lots of dumb f--ks in town, so glad that I live in a village.

    On the way home I was being driven to distraction by the urge to scratch/rub all these strange itches on my face, managed to resist though.
    As soon as I got in, clothes on hot wash and a very thorough shower.
    I won't be going in to town again for quite some time.
    Guy, try the Co-op in Capel, i've been twice in the last week or so, and they only let a few people in at one time and have everything apart from flour.

    Cheers - flour is one of the basics that I want to get (my wife is an excellent baker, I can just about manage a cheese scone ).

    I think that there must be a whole lot of people stockpiling flour who don't have the slightest idea what to do with it, let alone appreciate the there are different types

    Quite true - I have met a few on parent evenings

    Luckily (or through years of hard work), I live about eight miles outside of Ipswich and would normally only go in to town a couple of times per year - and then regret it

    We dont seem to have a shortage of anything at all in out stores apart from Pasta. I have always kept loads of pasta in anyway so could never be an issue for me.
