    Right. I'm going to have a swift stock up of essentials from the supermarket on Tuesday, then avoid the shops for the rest of the week as I detest the xmas madness with jam packed shops and everybody acting like headless chickens!

    I'll go tomorrow when the temperature has warmed up. Try and get enough for the week so I don't have to go back until after Boxing Day. Supermarkets are hell on earth at the best of times let alone the week before Xmas and they're getting worse. I think I might start ordering on line and getting it delivered.

    You're retired, so can go at the quietest times and avoid the worst of that pish... At this time of the year the earlier in the morning, the better for supermarkets. Tuesday will likely be a good day, say around 7am. Bet you there won't be many "headless chickens" around then!

    We're pretty much sorted now, aside from collecting the goose from the butcher, which we usually do early doors on Xmas eve (8am), and all the veg for Xmas lunch, and which we buy from the farmers market the same morning, so that everything is as fresh as possible for the big day

    Got a delivery slot reserved on the 23rd & I just add stuff to the basket as I think of it (or remove items if they've been sourced elsewhere as in I actually got off my arse & went to the shops. I've now got a Lidls at the end of my road which is very convenient to pop into for the odd bits).

    Lovely fresh veggies at bargain prices in Tesco yesterday, 2.5Kg potatoes for 19p, bag of Brussels sprouts 29p, bag of parsnips 29p, Cauliflower (v nice one) 29p. Probably going to Lidl today, may find they have similar offers.

    This year we will be spending Christmas in London. The Turkish owned supermarket on the corner is open 24/7/365. They offer the widest range of fresh fruit and vegetables imaginable. All of it is very good quality and reasonably priced.

    Hilarious row going on in the House of Commons at the moment. Jeremy Corbyn accused of calling Mrs May a "stupid woman". He muttered it after she'd been speaking and the cameras caught it. Nobody heard what he said and he claims to have said "stupid people", but I can lipread and know he is as guilty as hell. I doubt he really gives a toss anyway! (and he was right )
