Halfway in December and Christmas spirit is all around Kingston area 🌲πŸͺ„πŸŽ…, Commute to today's mission was definitely buffed with beautiful abd sparkly festive decorations on houses and in gardens.

I called Mrs J on Saturday morning ☎️ around 10:30 am to have a little chat and record her weekly shopping list πŸ“ƒ. She tailored🧡 her list to the shop we selected which was ASDA. Mrs J was very familiar with current offers and discounts there and wanted to make the best use if the available budget.

Initially I thought it's somewhere local but actually it was quite a distance from Mrs J house! Eventually I asked my partner to give me a lift πŸš—.

The store seemed to be quite crowded (Chstimas rush), but all was still manageable. I have made all needed purchases, called Mrs J when wasn't sure which brand she preferred. I was struggling to get 2 pint milk πŸ„πŸ₯›, apparently everything sold out πŸ€”. The rest of purchase went smoothly, including adding to the bag UK festive favorites - penguin biscuits πŸ™‚.

After arriving at Mrs J's, I have went into her dining room and took out all products on her table (as she requested).

She was very thankful for the help and wanted to invite me to stay. I couldn't stay though as my driver was waiting outside.
