    Default xmas food shopping

    yesterday eve we went shopping to morrisons for the christmas grub and things allthough it was very busy there was no fresh veg or meat & fish left which i expected (nip to Barnsley market today to get the rest).
    got thru the tills £200 lighter on the way home sharon decided to want to go to Tescos to get a few non food stuffs by this time it was 23:15 and i was pooped (been awake 24hrs (night shift worker me ))but thought it would be easier than tommorrow morning.
    How wrong i was we got to carpark at Tescos and it was heaving only a few parking spaces spare there was no trollys anyways as we only needed a few things we went for it and in we went, well we was greeted with a noise that u only get at a football match u couldn't move the shelves was empty there was staff trying to move around with there cages to stock up there was customers taking stuff out of the cages b4 they even got to the selves they were ment for.
    the queues were 8 or 10 deep it was totally stupid we got out at 00:25 with just 3 items that we bought and took us another 20 mins just to get out of the carpark.

    so for anyone doing there christmas food shop today good luck your going to need it.

    im off myself to Barnsley market in an hour and inm dreading it.

    We did most of ours last weekend, and SWMBO picked up the turkey and fresh veg last night.
    Waitrose totally screwed up our order, so gave us free sausages, and twice as much beef for half the price to compensate! So we've got a lovely bit of organic beef fillet for tonight's dinner

    We were at the local Tesco's last night. It was busy but nothing like the city store. Just nipped in for some last minute bits and came out £102 lighter.
