Posts Tagged ‘free range turkey’

Well I am now beginning to question my sanity!  Last night I had a quick check to see what time M & S opened today, as the most important thing on my list today was to secure the turkey.  To my surprise for the next couple of days it opens at 7am, so possibly because I like to be ahead of the game, or crowds in this situation, I set my alarm for the crack of sparrows and found my self driving into Dorking before it was light!  And I am happy to report that my dawn mission paid off.  Firstly the car park was empty.  Not only did I get the last two free range Turkey’s in the chiller, I was offered by a lovely girl (shop assistant) a whole side of fresh salmon for £5 which I have stashed in my freezer for a later date!  I managed to fill up a little trolley in no time, and at the checkout was greeted by a friend of mine who was working on the till, so I had a natter whilst loading my groceries into my own free carrier bags.  All in all a very stress free and pleasant experience although a little early in the day!

On returning home, I quickly prepared my Delia Smith Parmesan Parsnips, and they are open freezing now, whilst I write this.  My final pre-Christmas job on the list for today was to make a dining room table decoration.  I managed to buy some beautiful red roses that had been tipped in gold glitter, and some bronze sprayed thistles from M & S earlier, totaling £11.  I foraged in the garden for greenery and mistletoe, and then made a display pushed into oasis that was secured to a plastic plant saucer.  I have to say I was pleased with the outcome, and am enjoying the new-found florist within me!

Tomorrow I plan to rejuvenate the display that I made last week, with some fresh greenery, and take delivery of my ridiculously expensive Ocado shop, which I booked back in October …..  always an early bird eh!?
