To be honest, I am sorta looking forward until the next time I am so ill I can honestly say I am better off NOT going the, uhm.. 50? 100? meters down to the local grocery shop, because then I am gonna order my groceries online. The cost of delivery is just high enough that it isn't worth it unless I am buying ALOT (and I mean ALOT) of heavy stuff (flour, juice, milk, etc), or am so ill I shouldn't leave the flat. But am I looking forwards to it! Buying my GROCERIES ONLINE and having them DELIVERED TO MY DOOR! Pure bliss.
I love the web. The web brings me shopping without having to go in actual shops and deal with pesky people.
A few weeks back I had a book package I went to pick up (had to order the 5th and 6th Maisie Dobbs books online to get hold of them) and the guy at the place I get my post said "oh, where have you been, it's been aaaages!" when he saw me. Ahem. To be honest I try to order less because it is becoming embarrassing. Or maybe I should make places send the packages poste restante to other places, different places every time. Huh. Anyway I (for once) came up with a good reply WHILE I WAS STILL THERE, not ten minutes later, so I told him I had figured they had so much to do over Christmas that I wanted to give them a break.
