Grocery shopping in the UK is madness. Not in the “Our House”-“Must be Love” sense of Madness, however appropriate that may be, but the chaos involved in this basic hunter-gatherer ritual makes me crazy!
On the upside, I found lots of vegetarian options at Tesco. Sainsbury’s is a nice looking shop, (with slightly more frantic shoppers), but doesn’t have nearly the veg or organic options that are available at Tesco. And, wonderfully enough, I’ve found that the Tesco in-house brand items are very animal friendly. Most products, (didn’t look at every one though), are cruelty-free. 😀 I’m a happy expat!
There is a distinct lack of foo-foo coffee supplies here though. I can’t find candy-like liquid creamers, but I did find a serviceable syrup. It ain’t Starbuck’s-the home version, but it’ll juice me in the morning adequately.
It’s raining, but I would guess it’s gloomy and colder in Wisconsin right now. I can’t be bothered to check the weather site, but I know what October in Wisconsin is like. (and it’s usually poo.)
Not much to report, and I realize this is a boring post, but I’ve just had lunch, could do with a nap and am generally lazy on rainy days anyway.
Coming to you live from the UK and blowing a smooch your way~
