    Am I the only person here never to have used a wet wipe or had one used on me?

    A cotton hankie and a generous bit of spit was the preferred cleaning method when I was a child.
    No  Rest assured @pansyface - you are not alone  :(

    This really sets my teeth on edge, quote from Telegraph weather forecast today " there can be a frost tonight in the Midlands".

    Is it just me?

    I can only imagine that I've missed a BBC news announcement about an impending  potato shortage, as none of the four local major multples have had 12 pack Walkers plain crisps on their shelves for three weeks

    It is caused by an IT problem at the Walkers main factory.....apparently

    no doubt if it HAD been reported , plenty would be complaining about " scaremongering "

    I'd actually heard something similar,  but it is dragging on, they've other varieties and some six packs available. My wife likes the 12 packs.

    Why do crisp packs always have salt and vinegar? Salt and real vinegar on chips - great when nothing else  will hit the spot. 
     S&V crisps - the salt is probably genuine but what on earth is the vinegar flavour made of? Kitchen cleaners smell similar and might even taste better.

    I don't understand why people eat crisps.  Seriously unhealthy, not very tasty and then all those horrid packets that probably can't/won't be recycled.

    Sometimes you just have to eat something unhealthy. Chinese curry sauce is grossly unhealthy but sometimes  I have to have it
    We all have our secret food vices and if we don't we have the secret food cravings .
    Note. These aren't mine :  pot noodle; pork pie; full English; stuff out of Greggs; pepperami ; buckets of designer coffee etc etc è
