I went to the supermarket just before it rained (Thanks Dark Sky App) and there was literally no queue when I arrived as people had retreated to their car to shelter. I just wore waterproof jacket...

Has this thread moved on to Brexit stockpiling now.
At least Covid19 shortages gave us a useful glimpse into the future and what we regard as essentials.:(
The right kind of milk and bread was our main concern, after hand sanitisers and bleach.

My doctor very kindly let me have a couple extra prescriptions for my medication so I have a 3 month back stock of it

So far during covid I have had to break into it as there was a shortage .. brexit will only be worse as it's made in Spain/ France

They found me an alternative made in the UK however stocks then went Low due to the shortage of first one lol

Least once it's all done I'll have my 3 month supply back ready for when Brexit hits the supply chains

There was serious hysteria about Boots being sold out of hair dye back in early April.
I think a lot of men were about 3 weeks away from discovering what their partners real hair colour was.
(Women were always aware that their partners dyed their hair)

That's about right near me as well. They are certainly not common or becoming standard.
It's a funny one, Morrisons down in Blaydon had a few people who wear masks but social distancing can be a lottery. I nipped into a Lidl in Barnsley on Wednesday, no masks but social distancing was being impeccably respected, made me feel inept like I wasn't up with the program 😆
