Got there reasonably early, car park wasn't too full considering.  So, I get off to a good start and am making my way around the store...first, little old man who hasn't a clue where he's going so just stands in the middle of the aisle; middle-aged man with two younger female companions pushing his trolley decides to wander aimlessly whilst blocking the aisle for anyone wanting to pass him in either direction; dozens of families out and about with their offspring (not all toddlers) who insist on messing around and generally getting in the way of all the other shoppers.  WHY?????

It's not difficult to stand to one side.  If I'm stretching across you to reach something, whilst saying excuse me, I haven't suddenly told you to get the f*ck out of my way.  I have asked you nicely so there's no point in ignoring me or staring at me in outrage.  It's a fair bet that I want what is on the shelf just in front of you that you aren't even remotely interested in buying.  

If you must insist on taking your children with you, at least keep them next to you.  Allowing them to push a trolley that they can't see over or letting them 'guide' the trolley from the front, isn't helpful or endearing.  It's bloody annoying for the people behind you.  Likewise, not taking a blind bit of notice where they are after you've given them something to play with so they aren't watching where they're going or if you're wandering off without them, is not conducive to a pleasant shopping experience.  Emergency stops with a trolley full of food can get messy.

Putting them in a little car with a shopping basket is a good idea...letting them push it isn't and defeats the object.

Ah, so your children are older are they?  Lovely.  Teenagers and brother and sister at that.  What a lovely family you have.  It's clear to see why you bought them.  It's much easier to make a decision on whether to get him a magazine or not when he's there to ask but can only utter one syllable - "meh".  Play-fighting in the aisles is bloody annoying and trust me, I will beat you to a pulp next time you do it in front of me.

When I'm shopping, I am not invisible.  Please don't push your trolley into my arse (yes, I know it's rather large but even more reason for yolu being able to see it and avoid it) or my ankles.  They bruise easily.  I will wait for you in the car park and do the same to you when I'm in my car.

Well, not officially because I don't work Saturdays anyway so I decided to get the housework out of the way. Started with the dusting and cleaning last night and finished off with the hoovering and mopping today (after the shopping of course). I like to get it all out of the way by Saturday morning so I cna have the rest of the weekend free but it just wasn't happening today. I guess it was my own fault for doing the spring cleaning a season too late. My house is sparkling now though.

Oh yes, I have a gardener now too! Sounds impressive but we only have a flower bed in the front and a very small lawn and flower beds in the back but I hate gardening with a passion and Paul can't do it because of his leg so it's worth my while to pay someone to do it. The lawn's looking a bit ropey but the gardener said it's because of the dogs peeing on it and to get some Dog Rocks, so I did!  Kizzie's not too impressed.  She keeps taking Harley's out of her bowl and can't work out why I've put them in there, bless her.

Sunday's usually Twilight and ironing day but I think it will have to be put back a day as I've washed everything that could possibly need washing with the exception of the curtains and I won't get it all dry in one day so I guess Sunday's chill out day this week and Monday's Twilight and ironing...ready for the next lot.

Plans for the rest of my time off may change slightly in that we have a bit of money to spare and to enjoy.  No plans yet what we're going to do with it but I guess a day out and a trip to the cinema won't go amiss.  (I'm pretty sure that a bit will be spent on though).

For the rest of tonight though, it's me, hubby and the dogs and Friday the 13th!
