    Yep, the market price for milk and a lot of meat has basically crashed. Lamb isn't even worth selling at the moment. It's interesting because industry is basically feeling the shock of 'no deal' Brexit.
    Struggled to find lamb at all yesterday. Went to Tesco and Morrisons. That explains it.

    Bout to make my first trip to a shop in 21 days.... click and collect so not the full fat experience. Excited, nervous and very very aroused. Will they have the salted caramel éclairs we ordered? Find out later.

    Local Morrison’s has an abundance of everything. TP, soap, flour, eggs etc. Not much of a queue either at 10am.

    I just used my debit card to make a contactless payment of more than £30.

    It felt strange, transgressive and vagely erotic.

    In response to all the DMs I've had on the subject the collection was a success. Everything disinfected in the garden and transferred inside other than a few items I'll leave in the garage for 72 hours to detox.

    No chocolate exclairs (replaced with profiteroles - result!) and managed not to cum until after I left the supermarket carpark.

    Could be the social distancing making queues a lot longer.

    Flour seems to be the hard thing to come by these days.

    @mrpon

    I've discovered an amazing local wholesale trade supplier who now sells to consumers seeing as all the restaurants are shut.

    They've got fuck tonnes of every type of flour, pasta, tinned tomatoes - everything other than bog roll.

    Depending on where you live (cities obviously have huge advantage) I'm convinced with a half hour of internet research you can avoid supermarkets entirely...a habit I plan to continue post lockdowns too.

    Unfortunately they don't sell bog roll.

    It's busy outside here today, judging by what I can see from my window. Almost at quietish-day-pre-lockdown busy. Guess a combination of the weather and the impending Easter weekend has brought people out.

    Some of the supermarkets around here are opening their normal weekday hours on Friday and Monday, rather than bank holiday hours. Guess that's sensible to spread the load.

    We have been getting cupboard items from here:

    https://www.starbargains.co.uk/

    Its basically the food section of poundstretcher/B&M bargains, all b-tier brands and whatnot but they will send you a crate of scoff for not very much money in a couple of days.

    @Carlo So thats a couple weeks I have had the airbrush set up now.
    Not had a huge amount of time to play with it but fuck me, it is excellent and stressful all in one.
    If you're serious about painting then I would definitely say get an airbrush. Was worried about how much money I was putting out on this set up but it has totally been worth it.
    Putting paint down with an airbrush is one of the most satisfying things. Once you get the consistency correct it just flows and is really controllable and just lovely.
    I think having watched a lot of youtube videos, while they make it look easy, they also make it sound hard, if that makes sense.
    The compressor was a bit of a faff as it had a leak when I fired it up for the first time which took a very large spanner to sort out. But even it is good - it pumps away until up at pressure, then switches off and only comes on to top up the tank which is very helpful for noise.

    I would totally recommend investing if you can.

    @Nexus_6 This sounds right up my street. Got a few projects on the go at the moment, but I might stick this down as a birthday present :D

    DO IT
    all in, to get going I was around £375. That includes the big things of the brush, the compressor, the spray booth and the little things like the hose lead, the paint, the thinner and crocodile clips and all that shit.

    I went in a Farmfoods for the first time since I was a student today. No queues! No social distancing either, but you can't have everything.

    Tesco at around 4.30 this afternoon was fine for me, although as always people ignoring the distances and directions, but not too stressful.

    I’ll put this here, it’s similar

    I can’t believe the ridiculous prices I’m seeing for face coverings, One piece of cotton and a bit of elastic and they’re charging minimum £10 for it

    Looks like going for the old tshirt and elastic band route

    Our local bp garage is doing them for 3.50. Not sure if it's just a local thing or not though.
