S-H-O-P-P-I-N-G we’re shopping

1 GoodGymer made their way to help an isolated older person in Bournemouth.

It was my first mission doing shopping for someone and I had no idea it would be so hard!

When I arrived Mrs J was grateful but had struggled with a list as she didn’t know which shop I would be going to, and like most of us had particular foods she liked but didn’t know if the shop I planned to go to sold them. I hadn’t considered this and so promised I would not spend her money on things that were not the things she liked. No pressure then!

Mrs J had helpfully saved packaging of the foods she liked so I could look for them at the supermarket more easily so after creating a list I went on my way to the shop.

You take for granted that when you do your own shopping at your own supermarket you know what you want and where to find it so it took me a little longer. I also took greater care with my vegetable choices.

All in all on my return Mrs J was happy with my vegetable choices and that I found the brands she liked. I hope she’s enjoying that chocolate!
