Is this the question. Some discussion has been had lately based on what would happen if a flu epidemic did hit NZ and were isolated. How would we get our chocolate? How big a stash of Toilet paper does one really need? These are relevant questions.
It has been mentioned that stores in NZ only have enough supplies to last 3 days. Do the general public realise this. Why do they not encourage people to stock pile at least 3 months worth of necessities. Links to sites with knitted tampons have popped up and this is just plain frightening. And incredibly funny. My cats would love them. But what would we do if we didn't have the ability to just pop down to the shop and buy these things?
My biggest dilemma seems to be....how to stockpile chocolate and not eat it all! I have never yet accomplished this. But I will keep trying........where there is a will there is.......me munching on chocolate...just don't tell my husband.
