Dubai's Desperate Housewife

Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

(Not quite) Silent Sunday

with 4 comments

After a summer spent browsing the aisles of Sainsbury’s, Tesco’s, Waitrose and the joy that is the Marks & Spencer’s food hall, it’s always somewhat disappointing to come back to my local supermarket and view once more its tired looking display of last season’s Easter eggs (still at full price).

In fact, I only managed a 50 per cent hit-rate on this week’s shopping list, because the shop was out of stock of such basics as Parmesan cheese, sour cream, Cheerios and apples that hadn’t been juggled by a blind circus trainee.

But what my supermarket did have in stock was this handy foot-washer – a snip at £100. And, I suppose, really, who needs physical sustenance when you have clean feet?

  2. This little foot washer is a recent addition to the market to help those that are old/can’t lift their feet up to the sink, wash their feet during the routine wash (wuduu) done before prayers for muslims. That can be up to 5 times a day or even more if the person wants to pray more.
    It is actually nice to have it stocked up in the local supermarket as that is convinient for people to just pick it up incase their mom/dad or whoever else, is finding ot difficult to reach up to the sink.
    You might not have known the purpose of it and that is why you did not get the reason behind it being available in the local store.

    • What a great idea. I still think the shop should keep its food stocks up to date, though!
