Rumours of a second lockdown seem to be growing, and the way things are going it wouldn't surprise me if we get it fairly soon. It might be helpful to share how we're prepping.

I'm making sure everything in the house is working ok, eg essential appliances, getting in a few consumer durables that might become scarce.

I'm keeping the food stocks from pre-Lockdown One topped up.

I'm getting a few financial/family things done that involve visits to solicitors, accountants etc.

Planning an English holiday for the autumn but not putting any money down for it.

How about the rest of the Dosbodderers?

I've done a big Tesco shop and will be going to the pub whenever possible. 

Made sure to visit family over the past month or so too.

Second lockdown = second furlough. Groooovy.

I've been rotating the stash all Summer, it's stuff that gets used anyway. That's it, no weight to lose, no fitness to gain.

Family wedding coming up in a few months, can't even send invites yet.

Gently building my stocks up, learned a few lessons from last time, oatcakes were one example as they go horribly soft near their best before date which can be quite short.

Is this the lockdown where they lock us in our homes, except when we are a) spending money or b) working?

Don't worry, it's only infectious when you're not being a productive drone. Work, spend and clap, you'll be safe.

This country is becoming like some third world communist state. Hmmm. Like the one who set this virus upon the world. Done a bloody good job so far of converting the Rotw.

They wont do another national lockdown.

The first one was designed to piss everybody off so they would sell their fellow countrymen down the river during the subsequent 3 years of local lockdowns.

That was always the gameplan. 

And sell out their countrymen they have because "im alright jack"

"First they came for the people of Leicester and i didnt speak out"

"Just sat and said "oh well serves em right bloody foreign sweatshops" etc etc 

You got local lockdown measures up the ass until 2023.

The local quay, which is normally fully booked as a winter hard stand for boats has loads of capacity this winter and ins advertising storage - this is unheard of. Last winter the lockdown buggered people putting their boats in the water for spring/summer, so I think quite a few people aren't lifting their boats out this winter in case.

Try recooking them, on a tray, in the oven.

Better yet, just buy lots of oatmeal, butter, make sure you've some bicarb & salt, and make 'em fresh during lockdown.

My old boy isn't.  But it's more because he usually has it in from March to October, but they weren't allowed to launch/crane in until late July, so he's hoping for some nice winter days.

My freezer always stocked. A long time with cellar stores.

Need some more wood. Useful stuff.

Note the blank out on Vit D is working. Always. Plenty on shelf.

Need order some meds..supermarket gear..from states. Got collared last year by post office VAT regulators pre x mas.

Otherwise business as usual. Natural hoarder so I have most things I would need in stock.

Bar cash.

That last episode was a massive side swipe at cash users. Time for a hands on fightback in this area.
