    Have to get the essentials. It is the end of the world after all!

    Just think back to snow days when everyone panic buys everything they can... For what is ALWAYS 2 days max of disruption... don't we all go for a week without shopping?!!!

    Its very strange - I could just about understand it years ago when all the shops really shut down for several days - but now its one day and a lot of smaller shops are open on Christmas Day itself

    Left work, no traffic. Got to Asda, parked in seconds. A bit of a wait in the queue, off to Morrisons, less of a queue. Just pickled shallots to find and some wheat free bread flour.

    Pickle the shallots yourself. They taste much nicer IMO

    I don't think they will be ready by tomorrow.

    I usually do though. Unfortunately there has been too much on these last few months. I did make my own Xmas cakes and puddings. Wheat & gluten free. We might even get the tree up tonight.
