Mrs A's shopping list was pretty similar to last time - which meant heavy! Once I'd loaded the really heavy stuff (4 litres of Alpro and 2kg rice) into my backpack, there was plenty of room in two shopping bags for the rest - but still not a featherweight, as it included 4 tins of soups, 1kg bananas, 1kg onions and a few other goodies.
As well as some grocery staples, Mr I was hoping I could still get him a 2021 calendar from Tesco. However, seasons roll on and Tesco were already onto Valentine's Day cards and stuff. So no luck on that front, but everything else on the food front was loaded up and delivered safely.
Second shop for Mr J with special request this time - strawberry jelly packets, not jars strawberry jam! Turns out I'd got it wrong last week, but Mr J didn't want to give me any bad marks, he's just very grateful for the help.
On the first day of Christmas The GG mission came To-oo-do Mr J's sho-o-pping
On the fourth day of Christmas The shopping it was done Four pints of milk Three pots of jam Two loaves of bread And a multipack of nine toilet roll
Twas the night before Christmas When the mission came through Not a soul was out (well not without a mask) So to tesco I went where there was no queue
The shopping list said 4 of this and 4 of that And all in the panniers Along with the cat (just kidding!)
No reindeer here, and no sleigh just me on my bike going hey-hey-hey
I Dashed and I Danced and I also Pranced I'd Vix to if I knew just how No Comet to see, Just a Christmas Star taking a bow
As I headed home And went our of sight I could just hear "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night"
