Right now I'm trying to build up enough stock that I can get by without shopping for a month. With planning I could probably do it now, but I have to factor the cat in too, so he's not quite got enough for a month. Might be around 3 weeks worth currently.

I've got plenty of candles, the power bar thing is charged, but I might look into getting another as I gave my dad my spare.
Just be safe, dont burn the house down, dont put petrol in plastic bottles, etc.

Okay, just to double check, can we name 5 things we HAVE TO HAVE this winter, that we can get 'now' before winter starts, lockdown happens, shortages happen? Just in case my mind is like 'oh i have that', but I probably realise i am now out of or didn't actually get.

I need a double check :D

I need to get new insoles for my boots. Have you checked coats, boots etc are all in good condition?

Toiletries? I do need to get another conditioner bar, but otherwise fully stocked.

I need to do a check on my baking supplies, flour, oats, golden syrup, sugar etc, plus any spices I might use.

They 100% are not.

I have old shoes, my coat is not a winter coat.

Okay, fair point, time to look into that for sure.

I will also double check bathroom/toilet stuff, and baking things. I know i got a few things, but through the year i also used a bit

We can't book anything, we just have to pick a date and by the time we order it has to be available.

I am sure it's not that terrible, it hasn't been an issue for two years now.
