Last glimpse of summer 🌞🍂🌻. Gosia did a morning run and helped today with doing some essential shopping for Mrs and Mr D.

I have turned up at the front door just few minutes before 10 am. I was warmly welcomed by Mrs D, who gave me the shopping list 📝, few shopping bags 🛍 and £20 pounds in cash 💷.

Went to Sainsbury and was able to get everything from the list. I knew it will be quite heavy (I was doing a mission with similar list just a month ago). BUT, richer with that experience, this time I went to the shop with a proper vehicle that will help me out cope with the weight ⚖😊.

I was back at Mrs and Mr D's door after 40 min, left all the groceries to be collected from there with receipts and change in one of the bags. The couple was really kind, thanked and took the bags inside. They wished me a great weekend and - indeed - it was already such a lovely way to start it off ❤.
