The Grape Fire of London

1 GoodGymer made their way to help an isolated older person in Hammersmith and Fulham.

The shopping mission for Ms D took me to three shops.

I visited Tesco’s first, as she had specifically requested a certain sauce and fresh tagliatelle. However they didn’t have everything she had asked for, so I took a Lidl detour up the road to another supermarket.

It was Berry fortunate that they had the fruit that Ms D has asked for, and I managed to bag the bin liners too. The final thing on the list was cat food, which she had said was sold in the local Nisa. Ms D was absolutely right, and I purr-chased a box of Felix for her feline friend.

As I turned back down the road to deliver the shopping, there was a fire engine in the road, and I couldn’t get pasta. So I had to go the longer way round, but managed to get back to Ms D’s and deliver her essentials.

She was grape-ful for my help, and happy to have dinner for herself and for her pussycat.
