In a house like that they'd be better off keeping the food in an attic. especially apples or potatoes etc - they prefer dry not damp.

Maybe it rains through the roof.

Letting in a guy with a gun who doesn't give any straight answers - haven't they not yet learned their lesson?

I trust no one. Is it cos they are all middle class?


Abby is not middle class - she's definitely upper class. She had servants!

Upper, middle, precious few oiks about.


did she have servants? i thought it was just a cleaning type lady. I'd say she's lower upper (if that makes sense) definitely not 'old money'.


Well, she was married to Peter Bowles, and he was always super posh Grin

If he had written in 2020, they would have a lorry full of loo paper.

you can grow pinapples & citrus here in the south - but you'd need a nice warm orangery & the petrol to grow it (plus seed) I think he's right there. tea we can grow here, but again you'd need the plants.

I'd be alright - Fawley refinery is about 30 miles from me - I'd go pinch a tanker or two from there *LOL*

Hmmm, maybe I should get some tea and cocoa before the next pandemic strikes.

Problem is, I haven't got any green fingers. I even managed to kill a tillandsia...
 
Nixxie
Why are they not siphoning the petrol out already? they must have summat to put it into, even if it's buckets & bathtubs!!
 
Nixxie
Ohh God... ate the kids going to tattle yet again??
 
Nixxie
Ohh no thank goodness - they've drummed a bit of sense into him.

I have really green fingers! I'd have gone round all the shops & stockpiled seeds & fertilizer etc first thing - it's not something that other folks would think about until it was too late.

They are all bombing about at top speed... if there is no petrol you'd want to go slow & stead to conserve it all.
 
Nixxie
Ohhh noo... this time it is cookie monster tattling... lordy!!

He is fighting for his life and the community's life. Those 3 could have thrown in with them. So yes he is better
