The poll from the other thread statistically suggests that there's such a possibility, so I guess my inner can be adjusted accordingly.

P.S. In parallel universe though... after giving a good seeing to ... each other - it will work.

No misery. Nooooo.

Though the temps certainly were not glamorous. Still managed to spend the entire day today in the water.

(I am not a big fan of glamping, tbh, if I can rough it otherwise...but it is still amazing, as any camping)

Re: The First World Problem Thread

To clarify,I did NOT ask for a status update of whether life is still going on. No news = good news. I am on holiday. 24/7 is on hold. You're away = slave labour is temporarily unavailable. Thanks you for the news that you are enjoying yourself.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The Ölz sandwich bread from Coop has changed something and the bread isn't the right consistency anymore. I wasted a whole meal's worth of Cheddar and Parma ham, and now I have to eat less than perfect grilled cheese.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I found the wholemeal sandwich from Aldi to be really good (and way cheaper than anything Coop or Migros offer) and an excellent choice for grilled sandwiches.

I'm travelling to London in 9 days, its touch-and-go whether my last jar of Branston pickle will last that long
