Normally I'm twice a day and two different types based on the Bristol Stool Scale, mornings I'm type5/6, additional sheets needed to avoid the splash effect, late afternoon I'm type 4, much fewer sheets needed.

A fair chunk of my life revolves around the Bristol Stool Chart
Revolving stools are dangerous at higher angular velocities, they really should have a backrest!

Where on the chart would an excess of fibre be?

Or can you not have too much of a good thing?

....occured today.

Following on from LDs post about 1 roll of toilet paper for 10 days I thought I would put the other side of the coin.
13 days now plus the evening I arrived, looks like another 2 days at least remaining, expensive toilet paper works out cheaper than the budget stuff, a good diet helps as well it would appear.

The others in the cupboard are all the cheapest thinnest stuff so will require much more for safety reasons!

Perhaps an alternative origin of the phrase " shi* shaped and Bristol fashion"
I have experienced a mid winter whiteout on the high tundra between Alta and Skaidi, I tell you, it's no big deal there is nothing to see, anyway, I must go back there as I think I left the northern lights on.

I don't do cheap toilet paper. 3 ply every time. For 14 days I would want a minimum of 6 and probably 8 for safety working on an average of 3 times a day (I've had my 3rd movement since my op).
