Morning those up/still around. Hope Glyn doesnt have an horrendous journey.
No snow, below freezing again & so far, an abscence of birds on feeders.
Gary- food shopping on line is very useful. I do a 'big' shop once amonth- call it my 'stock shop'. All the bulky, heavy stuff & a couple of days fresh vegs/dairy. I started it in early 08 as wasnt allowed to drive, so it was a lifesaver. Shopping with a fraught OH, in those days, not sensible. I use Tesco, coz that's where I used to do the shop anyway so was used to their products etc. The website has changed recently but I just get stuck in & 'favorites' useful.
I find just as likely to have stuff unavailable as going to a store. Make sure you specify if no substitutions wanted then no silly products. No petrol costs, no lugging a heavy trolley around, putting back out loading/unloading trolley & car. You get allocated a time slot which if it doesnt work they refund the cost! You can be doing other things, even outside & I just stick a note on the front door & have mobile with me. Often regular drivers, which when I was ill were very good at bringing things into the house for me. Less likely to overspend too.
I think Becks uses Asda quite regularly. I now go to a nearby S'bury for our w/end shop as bliss- quiet, well stocked, & better quality vegs etc. than our local supermarket. We dont have a decent normal market here, but I do prefer that for fruit & veg over s/mkts & use one whenever I can- usually when staying over with OH.
Ok sermon/advertising session over. Need to get dressed before Mr Tesco comes! J.
