no tarts tonight FG. but just found a packet of club orange bics
I made a tray of flapjacks.I am sending OH off in the morning with emergency supplies of flapjacks and bananas.
I hope nothing big comes down. I dont play with the chainsaw, and OH is away until Wednesday.
I'm impressed Bob! It will be a bonny sight to cheer you up on dull days!
Not got all of mine in yet but the weather has held me back a little. Getting the beds built for them was the priority but got lots into pots. Hope to get some more in the beds soon.
Aren't some companies hopeless though? Quick enough to take your hard earned cash though
Have you carved the pumpkins yet, Stacey?
You might need them tonight for candle holders.
No pumpkins carved yet fidget lol I tend to do it 2 days before as they rot pretty quick once hollowed out and some of the carvings hang by a thread so need the integrity to keep!!!! But yeah the rain has just started if we loose electricity I will cry hubby is attached to his Xbox and gets grumpy if he can't have a go!!!!
Got a few tealights around the house. Seems still here at the mo' but who knows. H has a couple of films on tablet "just in case"..of what I don't know. I'm more concerned if I get up in the morning and no electricity for kettle.
That is a major concern KEF, no kettle
got my old trangia camping stove in the porch up at 4-30 am could not go out with no brew
No kettle would be disastrous and I don't have a gas hob either to do a pan of water
and what would be the chances of finding two dry sticks to rub together...
Any mint ones archie? They're my favourite.
do they still do mint ones ???
I hope OH knows where the camping petrol stove is
We have a gas hob (phew) as the camping equipment that would work (trangia/Kelly kettle) are at my parents Would recommend the Kelly Kettle for quick heating of water. Doesn't take much fuel, just whatever is burnable
Oh yes archie! Have to fight my youngest daughter for them! Asda sells them and Morrisons I think.
Panda - I've a lot of wood here - hope I don't have to start using it
you could fill a flask with boiling water for your brew tomorrow
I've got a rangemaster cooker, part gas, part electric. But the gas won't come thro' if the electric is off. I'll just have to use the microwave, Maybe I'll make a flask of tea just in case..I am joking.
I have some old metal coat hangers, so if I make a triangle and put them over an open fire I can make toast & drink cold water. How did they manage without my wisdom in the war? Plus I don't have an open fire.
Have a good night all, see you tomoz.
I'm hoping it won't come to that up here archie! I have metal flasks and they don't keep the water overly hot either
I've got a fabulous image of people remembering skills from Scouts/Guides (I assume some of us were - and I still am of course!!)
4th Panda I used to self cater in Greece in the early '80s.
