We did a normal food shop today and were back home by 09:10 thank goodness. Lidl and Morrison’s were both far busier than normal and it was a relief to get home!
Crazy shopping going on with food and booze positivily overflowing from supersized trollies. I can’t even begin to imagine how much will be wasted:(
It is the same at Easter. Honestly, anyone would think the shops are going to be shut for a month or more. It makes you realise just what life would be like and how ugly things would be, in a catastrophic event.
3 out of the 4 of us went out last night for our ex-school Christmas meal. When our square of roast pork came out, it was accompanied by a heaped tablespoon of mashed potato with 3 x 2”ends of carrot stuck into it. Imagine the millennium dome! T. had roast turkey and got everything with it, so maybe 3 times more than us.
We joked about what size the desserts would be. T got 2 x 1” scoops of ice cream, DB had a thin square of Christmas pudding plus brandy custard and mine was a 1 1/2” circle of white chocolate cheese cake, plus 2 quarters of a fig.
We did get mince pie and a hot drink but were overcharged on the bill by £11 so had to sort that out as well. Food was nice, service quite good, portion sizes need something changing.
