Xmas food shopping – can you beat this?
Its soo fookin expensive though 🙁 2 boys (7 and 11) and 19 yr old daughter home from Uni. Tesco delivery yesterday was about £200 and 3 days before not a huge amount less. Need to go Lidl later and that’ll be another £50 or so. Wife was at M&S yesterday and probs another £50.
and yes, it is a first world thing, we don’t need all that food and booze, but, hey, it’s Christmas 😆
noet to beat a g’n’t and a roll and sausage for lunch though !Posted 4 years ago
Ma boy is struggling to get a train out of London. 🙁 I’m also having to do his Xmas shopping, he’s in his late 20’s FFS.
I’m regularly changing towels due to the leak in the lounge. Electricals have been moved out of the way. In addition, water came in through the extension window this morning.
Now have an extra mouth to food as I’m looking after the dispossessed.
S’OK, I’m smiling. 😆Posted 4 years agoKryton57Subscriber
My 4.9yo saw a WaterAid advert yesterday, prompting a conversation about why the little boy on the Telly had thin arms and sticking out ribs. 🙁
He went to our stuffed post Christmas shop cupboard, brought me a packet of crisps and asked if he could give them to him.

Mind over £40 of that was a new blender as my pressie to me.
I might be strange but I am enjoying not having to worry about cooking, family, inlaws, stress, arguments, etc this year.
One of the plus sides of being single 🙂

At the Disney store at Disneyland Paris last summer I noticed a chap was piling loads in to his baskets.
So I, of course, had to lurk at the checkout while he was paying…
1357 Euros. 😯
As a bonus, at the car-park ticket machine this morning, the said machine duly dispensed my ticket…& £3.30 clanked its way into the coin return tray. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
I was seen to punch the air.
Mrs CD has been buying food and alcohol for Xmas for the past month. Her parents are here for 6 days but we must of spent well over 500 with about half of that on alcohol. Her parents arrived with a car full of food too so we will at least be able to survive food wise for a year if a nuclear winter or something should happen 😕Posted 4 years ago
