    Default Good morning Wednesday

    What are we all up to today?

    We're making Mother's Day cards today so the stickers and glitter are all ready!

    I do need to try and get some bread this morning, or there'll be no toast and sandwiches for anyone. I did go to the supermarket last night, foolishly thinking I'd be able to get some, but there was none at all. I was quite surprised. I hadn't realised things were quite that bad

    Good morning!

    I have one off today as daddy has day off and another has come down with the pox, so just me and 2 good walkers, so we're heading for the woods ! We may camp out for a bit !!!!

    I have Mothers day cards to make as well.


    A friend said she went to local bakers mid morning, and they'd sold out of bread by 9am ! if i think too much about it, i will cry!

    stay safe everyone

    Think more outside play a good idea. So I’ll be out a lot more in the fresh air.

    We're finding that all supermarkets have 'something'. (Although no hand soap/sanitizer anywhere). DH is driving to several different supermarkets and managing to get the basics. I know some people don't have the ability to get to different supermarkets though.

    My friends in London are trying desperately to get eggs. Here in my part of the midlands eggs are not a problem.

    Could you make your own bread if they have any of those packets of bread mix anywhere?

    Lots of people are saying that small corner shops have stock of random things.

    My son & I managed a small trolley full between us last night, despite the shelves being almost empty.

    I had the last box of teabags on the shelf, some frozen garlic mushrooms (because they had no chips!), milk, cheese (not my usual, but it'll be OK), a box of Lego and some cakes. All a bit random and definitely not what I'd gone in for, but we can still eat. The meals just might be a bit different to normal

    That's what I said we will make dinners out of whatever we can buy, might not be quite what we are used to but never mind. We bought random things including instant hot chocolate so we can always have that as drink if we run out of teabags or milk. Trying to think out of the box !

    If I stay open I’m seriously considering asking parents to supply packed lunches. Just now I do all meals and snacks and I honestly don’t know if I will be able to keep doing all the meals. I often have 8 children for dinner , and that’s before I feed my own family.

    me too!

    I also have incredibly fussy eaters, that i can get round, but not with difficulties in getting food in the first place! its not as if we can pop out to the supermarket when it opens!

    When I was trying to find bread last night I said to my son that I might have to ask parents to start bringing packed lunches. It's not just that I can't buy the usual food, but anything I can find is a lot more expensive. I usually pay 65p for a store brand packet of pasta, but the only one I could get was an expensive brand at almost £2 a packet.

    I think you should be able to ask parents to supply own food. However, will they want a reduction in fees for doing so?
