Supermarket Substitute

Since my last two blog posts have been on the “heavy” side, I thought I will write about something as mundane as my weekly shopping!

I had a bit of a senior moment yesterday when I couldn’t remember where I had left the newly purchased can of ironing starch.

Unfortunately, I still belong to what I assume will be a semi extinct group of people who still use starch to iron. I use it primarily for the Mhinisteir’s clerical shirts androbes.

I was quite sure that it had come with my Tesco delivery. By the way, I have had to reluctantly continue using Tesco on top of Ocado for my weekly shopping as there are just some things that I can’t get from Ocado like the ironing starch.

For a split second, I did wonder whether the can of ironing starch got “lost” like my bag of salad leaves!!!!!

The Mhinisteir suggested I look at the receipt and so I did. Phew! what a relief!!! The can of ironing starch was on the list but it had been substituted with a bottle of Tesco Fabric Freshener!!!! Yes, it was then that I remembered refusing it as it was a rubbish substitute. The substitute that takes the biscuit is when once I had ordered chocolate eclairs and received Chinese spring rolls instead!!!!
