Off I go list in hand, I’ve checked it twice, underlined the really important items and still I know there is something I have forgotten.
That’s how it is.
You get into the shop and there is so much that greets your eye. We are spoiled I tell myself as I wander through the fruit and veg, so many varieties, so much choice but I put it down to a necessary evil.
We have to eat, we like to be clothed in what we think is acceptable and what makes us look our best.
I know I have become somewhat institutionalised to wandering the aisles each Saturday morning picking up the things we need for the next week.
When Covid restrictions were in place I tried home delivery and click and collect. But it just wasn’t the same as meandering around the shop looking at stuff you either would never buy or at stuff for your own health you’d never put in your trolley.
I think in the end I preferred to risk it during Covid, mask on, phone at the ready to use the QR code, hand sanitiser and off I’d go.
Going to the shop in person meant there was always the possibility of finding bargain you’d miss if you weren’t there.
