Yeah, we looked like nutters in the supermarket the other day, our trolley almost spilling over with stuff, but as a family of six it was more or less a normal shopping trip.
I guess we bought a bit more than usual, but even with cupboards and freezers full, it won’t take us long to get through it all if (when) we’re stuck inside for weeks on end. Stuff like toilet roll, pasta and rice were all gone anyway.
I remember, the morning after eating the wrong thing in Damascus, rushing into the youth hostel’s toilet only to find, too late, that the bogroll had run out. I really really didn’t want to sacrifice a sock, so I managed to field strip the cardboard inner. Like a Snowdonian artisan cutting a piece of slate, you can get a surprising number of very thin strips of functional material from one of those tubes.
Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that…
