    Pets Mum - I am going to have a go at drying herbs etc thank you.
    Glad yours are better stocked now do you have the queuing to get in? Our little shops are very empty, no fresh food, and our big ones always seem to have queues to get in (long ones) we keep driving by at different times, but it never seems any different, Idk if its worse because of where I live etc. I managed to get some fresh food yesterday in lidl but that was about it.

    I would pick up two bags, so you have them in stock. There are enough other things to worry about without additional concerns

    No I just went straight in, this was aldi at lunchtime, there was a notice saying one person one trolley. Some of the products had notices saying only of this product. No fuss getting anything I wanted. Lots of fresh. I was on a large industrial estate in Blackburn, so a few miles from home (I was at work) it is usually heaving on a Sunday. The B&M was open too and was selling gardening produce including fence panels and compost - my colleague got those during her break as well as her veg etc.

    Would you believe a couple of boxes of Fibafirst (cue claims of stockpiling) and CD added to get free delivery. Everything was in stock

    Lidl have a garden thing on at the moment: I've picked up loads of little blocks of coconut compost which you just add water to to make 'normal' compost. All of ours have medium-size bags on the foyer too.

    We've got a few month's supply of herb robert in the garden, and we can still forage easily enough on our walks.

    We're eating more fresh food so more leftovers for the bunnies.

    I've got enough hay for a month or more, depending on how the weather is (warm=less hay eaten as other plants grow). I've got enough pellets for about 6m or so. Only having two rabbits who we don't really spoil is paying off right now ;P
    The geeky one...



    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.

    That's really weird, we've had some things take a couple extra days, but not that long! Unless you did subscribe and save? I did one earlier and had to edit when the first order would arrive.

    Its annoying with the whole stock piling thing, I really wanted peach ice tea earlier, and my boyfriend went out and got some bits, picked up 4 small bottles, but was told everything was limited to 3 per person so even though he wasn't stock piling we are limited same with baby wipes, I could only get two packs on amazon of the ones we wanted, but normally I'd have bought maybe 6 packs? Don't wanna have to be ordering them afterwards tbh I don't normally buy baby wipes, but figured I should have some here, need to get some nappies in too, but they're sold out everywhere I've looked. Even in lidl yesterday they had no newborn sized ones everything is so nuts rn

    Glad you're okay for stuff

    We could only get one bag of litter yesterday and one carefresh (for Pepper the hamster) as pet bedding in pets at home is limited to two... Not easy with 6 animals atm

    Went to PAH to get 2 bags of rabbit food and they only had 2 x 2kg bags which were no good for me. I got the guinea food and 2 bags of hamster food so Bella should be ok. Ho pefully they will be getting some in soon. I normally buy it on line but it says out of stock.
