(Not quite) Silent Sunday
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?
