I'm sure if you  had a quiet word with any of their suppliers they'd tell you some horror stories. They treat "their" farmers appallingly.

I thought one of you might have got my washing in for me it was nice and sunny when I left here this morning ... torrential rain and thunderstorms as I drove back  

Ma even paler and frailer than two days ago, with not enough energy even to listen to me nattering.  I just sat by her bed and did my knitting while she dozed - every so often she'd open her eyes and say Hello, or ask where Pa was?  I just said that he's with Brother - she was happy with that.

I remember my panic when I got home and realised I'd left my handbag and purse in the trolley in the trolley park at Tesco in the dark late one evening. 

I phoned immediately and they said it'd been handed in.
