    We did our shopping today,,,,no not (smug look like woman from insurance advert) online. We actually went to Tesco's :shock: I know I know I'm still coming to terms with it myself. Walking around with a manky trolley, with all the old people shuffling and people with kids and women with their fat ass OH's tagging behind them at a snails pace leaning all over the trolley and looking like a bulldog chewing a wasp.

    It was hell. If you haven't already been I'd say go tonight at 3am.

    I'm all tesco'ed out :dance: I have tatties, brussels, mince pies, and more wrapping paper than you could shake a stick at :dance:

    we did the big christmas shop yesterday at asda.
    we were going to do it online but the only available slots left were 27th december lol
    we went at 9.30am, we thought it would be quiet with everyone just getting to work and kids still at school but it was heaving.

    but we got everything, but weve to nip back on monday just to get fresh salad and veg.

    we were going to go at night time about 10pm but i used to work at tesco and by that time, everything had gone :think:

    Yeah it weird. Its like everyone is in a real rush to do everything almost like a panic. Its mad. I must admit nobody really pee'd me off in Tesco's. My OH annoyed me trying to rush me so I'd spend less :roll: and yep, just realised I forgot milk :doh: What a prat!

    I got our main shopping from asda online but still popped over for a couple of bits this morning and it was soooo busy! Why do they insist on putting all the veg in the doorway too? :think: :wall: Could hardly get in and out! :x

    But that's it now! No more shopping left to do! :cheer:

    I did a big Tesco shop on Wednesday morning straight from school it was really empty.
    I'm not doing Christmas dinner, going to my moms so I just needed to stock up on stuff, I will get smaller stuff as and when I need it from the local shop.

    I still spent a fortune though.... just stuff like extra tea bags and washing powder and nappies, all the stuff you don't wanna run out of.

    Something very strange happened yesterday. I went to Tesco's, it was ridiculously busy - as if the world was about to end, but somehow I stayed completely calm, even when I was picking some chocolates from a low shelf and an old man drove his trolley into my head (he didnt even apologise), I didnt flip out, I didnt even make a loud sarcastic comment like I usually would.

    Then it took me 40 minutes to get out of the car park. I didnt stress at all. I let cars out before me and just sat there smiling to myself. I found it quite hard to believe myself as I always get trolley rage when shopping.

    But I have now discovered the key to stress free shopping = Sex before hand! It leaves you completely with a feeling of serenity (If it was satisfying of course!). I tried the same technique again tonight and it worked! My OH and me didnt argue at all like we usually do. I think its only right that we do this every time we need food. :lol:

    We've just got in from Asda, wasnt as bad as I expected it to be to be honest although we spent a fortune (£175) and still not finished as we had to stop at frozen cos we didnt have anymore room in trolley :oops:

    Cupboards are crammed and got loads of nice stuff in tho now :D
