  1. I’m a no for this guys even if it goes ahead. Being self employed, and no care package given to me by the government, I’m on 0 a day for the foreseeable future. There’s a lot of other people out there in the same if not worse position. But here’s hoping this will only last until the end of April so we get some sort of summer.
  2. Not me. Almost out. And with the price that some butchers are charging I think I’ll go veggie for a bit. And that everyone is the true horror of this pandemic 😭😭😭😭
  3. I still have 30kg left but I know who to call when I’m running low.
  4. They shouldn’t have to restrict what people can buy. There would be no problem if people were idiots.
  5. I hate idiot shoppers 🙄🙄🙄
  6. Obviously to anyone on here who is worried financially or worried for their health, I wish you well.
  7. To jump on a bit of a rant (I know it’s not Tuesday) but I’m getting sick and tired of listening to people screaming that we should be on lockdown. I’m self employed and if they shut everything down I’ll have no work and it will cause a serious problem for me and my family. I was working at a school yesterday and the teachers were all complaining that they might get it if they stay open. They were all young healthy people so there would be no real harm. One of them was complaining that she wanted to visit her grandmother at the weekend and said she still was and it would be the school’s and government’s fault if she gave it to her grandmother for not shutting the school. They were all moaning they couldn’t have the school closed so they could be paid for working from home, not thinking about the ramifications for the parents that would have to find care for their children. Selfish people!
  8. I think the government has handled this pretty well (without making this too political). I know it’s frustrating that there isn’t much to go on, but the fact is if everyone just stayed hygienic it wouldn’t be too big a problem. Everyone that is demanding we all isolate for 2+ weeks is silly. There are more deaths from simple flu a year in the UK. I think the idea of not panicking is a good one. At a guess I think a lot of events in April will probably be cancelled as that’s roughly when they are guessing the UK will hit its peak. As self employed if they shut everything up then it will cause a huge problem for me financially. Ive also just come back from Butlins with the kid and it has been fine. They’ve kept the rides clean and plenty of places to clean hands, which is what I think we need.
  9. I was wondering why everyone was buying toilet roll 🤔🤔🤔. It makes sense now. It’s going to be used to light the charcoal. I think we need to let people know there are better firelighters, that way I won’t have to use newspaper to wipe my arse by the end of the week.

    Hi and welcome to the group.
  11. I remember speaking to a chef who was telling me that meat loses 70% of its flavour. I generally don’t worry about the loss of flavour as it still tastes great. He did say a good way to freeze the meat is to wrap in freezer paper then foil then in a zip lock bag. Hope that is helpful.
  12. Hi and welcome to the group. I managed a few cooks in jan n the beginning of feb but since the weather took a turn for the worse I’ve had the bbq’s cozy in the shed.
  13. We should change this from Tuesday Rant to just Day Rant 😂😂😂
  14. Most items like chargers and leads are made in China. Wherever you brought it, it would end up coming from there.

    I’ll give that dried herbs a try. Cheers mate
