Literally the only thing left in the noodle/tin section are these ‘be good to yourself- chicken noodle soup in a cup‘ sachets. I bought a bunch of these to last me if the apocalypse truly hit as they were cheap. It seems like I am the only one buying them and now wonder if this was worse than going hungry.

I love how the population has collectively decided to buy everything butΒ these. It actually hurts me a little to think I am the only one that bought some, what do they know that I don’t? It has ‘be good to yourself’ on the box, it was a no-brainer surely?

I’m the no-brainer apparently.

 


 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak I am somewhat limited to what I can do in London, but I aim to post as much as I can during this time. I promise to have some great posts coming your way once this is all over and stay well during this difficult period.

Stay home, stay safe and happy blogging!

    1. I had this scheduled a couple days ago, but right now it is actually much better that when I had drafted this post. In the space of a couple days the panic buying is seeming to reduce and the shelves are slowly filling up again. So all is well here thank you! I appreciate your concerns and I hope it isn’t bad where you are πŸ™‚

  1. Nothing wrong with the soup. Someone decided to leave a few for another person (nice) but then the good deed turned into a conspiracy. Buyem up and enjoy, but leave one for another person in need.

    1. I have a couple, hopefully got enough to last me a week or so. But yes it’s important that we don’t buy up everything and leave others out! I am glad to see the shelves starting to fill again.

      1. Spring time allergies acting up here, thanks to a large park across the street with many plants and trees. Beyond that, life is good. Folks out there that have it worse so I’ll hardly complain. Thank goodness we’re not down to instant noodles yet for example. πŸ˜€

        As a suggestion there, treat them (the noodles) as something akin to the “Chopped” TV show here. It’s a cooking show where the chefs are given a basket with 5 random ingredients and tasked with creating something new out of them. It’s a fun exercise in creativity. πŸ™‚

      2. Benefits to being in isolation I guess! Avoid those allergies. I used to get hay fever a lot growing up and it’s no fun. A perk to living in London now is I will avoid a lot of that. Hope your allergies aren’t too bad!

        That’s a great idea, it is certainly a time to try and be creative. We have a similar show called ‘Ready Steady Cook’ in the UK and it looks good fun. I am not sure if it is still running… I will have to see.

      3. You might be able to catch it in reruns if nothing else. πŸ™‚ Chopped here is fixed in terms of the competition (you just have to look for the little signs), BUT the creativity element in the cooking is still there.

  2. I am dreading the day I don’t have enough stocks left as it means I have to go out and buy foods. Fortunately the groceries are still open but with limited time but I don’t like to queue as it’s a risk. Less people and more distances the better.

    1. I am finding less queues everywhere now, and food is not being panic bought either. So hopefully this will make it easier for everyone. That is the case in my little corner of London at least!
