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.

27/10/2013 at 20:15

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.

27/10/2013 at 20:25

That is a major concern KEF, no kettle

27/10/2013 at 20:26

got  my old trangia camping stove  in the porch up at 4-30 am could not go out with no brew

27/10/2013 at 20:28

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.

27/10/2013 at 20:32

do they still  do mint ones ???

27/10/2013 at 20:32

I hope OH knows where the camping petrol stove is

27/10/2013 at 20:34

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 

27/10/2013 at 20:44

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.

27/10/2013 at 20:47

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 

27/10/2013 at 20:52

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!!)
