The one thing I really dislike is when I have to unpack and get the lunch at the same time after a big shop.
- Thanks for the response.
I too am disabled, so indeed I do appreciate my husband introducing me to it.
I am in France alone a lot of the time, and frankly , once I get around the supermarket , all I want to do is get in the car and drive home.
You can imagine then, when he is in France, this sort of treat is extra special.
I can't complain though, as if I need to "go it alone" shopping, I go along to the local Intermarche, where they know me, and they unpack, scan, repack and load the car for me.
Sadly , there is only a rickety plastic bench to sit on, and like your supermakrket, there is no coffee shop, but we still do go to the "big one" a few times a month and have a "special" coffee. It's usually then we get all the heavy goods, like UHT milk, a sack of potatoes etc.
Interestingly, we always see someone we know, so we end up chatting for longer than we should, but that's great too, and all part of the experience.
Enjoy your day,
It's not unusual around here (Cantal) to see the postman in the pub having a quick Ricard at about 9.30 during his rounds. The part-time postmistress is in the pub 9.00 to 9.30. Most of the builders and artisans are in there 8.00 to 8.30. The local flics often call in mid-morning for one. They all drink Ricard and a small, black, sludgy thing they call coffee. And how do I know this you ask yourselves........ Chin Chin
Well Jane,if its of the "M Bricolage" type, I guess at the very least some flowers or a lovely potted plant.
In the case of the mainstream heavy DIY places, I'm guessing a luke warm can of Orangina from the checkout ?
I m wondering what that entitles me to as I wait outside the DIY shed yet again?
