    I live in Norfolk and our nearest local town only has a Waitrose but they built a massive permanent camp for “travellers” just across the road, so half the people in there are of the Range Rover, tweed jacket and Barbour riding jacket wearing type, despite only being up from London for the weekend and not owning a horse. The owner half have a broad Irish accent and keep trying to nick everything!

    I’m pretty sure the ‘leg/merlot’ classic is from my local (St Albans).

    Love it in there, also love parking my massive bright red chavved up van in the car park, much to the regulars’ disquiet.

    ‘Noah! You’ve had enough Manchego for one day.’

    Brilliant. Ace find.

    I was told – perhaps wrongly – this was set up by a sixth former who travels on the same train to School as my eldest. He will go far. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I didn’t know this was a frequent topic of discussion but genuinely I was in my local store recently and heard a small boy “mother, oh mother please can we have another round of Camembert?” . It then I knew I was a long way from home.

    For those of you with Facebook, this may make you chuckle. Especially with the recent threads on Waitrose/coffee etc.

    “i like Waitrose, lovely cheese counter, it’s the only place i can rely on finding sheeps-milk Gouda”

    i said that.Replace sheep for goat and that could be me and the missus. We get through loads of this…delicious!

    Only place I can find saucisson in Edinburgh

    I like that a lot. Funniest FB page I’ve seen in a while. I have a couple of friend who resemble that beautifully.

    That Goat’s Milk Gouda is lovely.

    apologies for the goat/sheep error, i’m such a massive cheese-whore i forget which one’s which sometimes.

    anyway, that’s the badger, it’s astonishingly tasty.

    We all know what it’s really all about…

    Lovely free coffee today ๐Ÿ˜‰

    CFH – I know it’s a repeat, but can’t tire of that calendar!

    ๐Ÿ˜ณ their jambon de iberico is to die for…. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Agreed on the faked nature of it though, why would they announce what had been spilt, then correct themselves like that?

    Of course, REALLY posh people tend to buy Smart Price or Happy Shopper.

    REALLY REALLY posh people send their gentleman’s gentleman.

    Don’t you, flashy?

    Overheard in Waitrose?
    Surely a little man delivers?

    We’re common as muck but got fed up with the old boots that Tesco tried to pass off as butcher meat. Paying a bit more for edible food seems worth it to us.

    I went to Aldi today. Mrs CFH had heard great things about their nappies. Blinking flip, they’re cheap! Was a little bit like stepping back in time to South Yorkshire in the 80’s apart from that.

    We then went to Waitrose to do the rest of the shopping.

    Waitroise milfs? I think we’re getting short changed. They’re all pensioners in our one. Nice to see they did so well though.

    I call them REDVITs

    Alas, I’ve not heard any such gems in our local store recently, it’s been the Ocado man knocking on the door for the past couple of months and they’ve not been so amusing ๐Ÿ™

    Cheers,

    The german dead pig products aren’t half bad either, Capt’n.
