This is the first time we have been shopping since the 5p carrier bag rule started. We never realised until the girl on the checkout told us that once you buy a 10p bag for life, it is for life. If the bag rips or the handles drop off you just take it back and they will give you a new one for free.That's not so bad as long as you remember to take them with you. I wonder what Mr Sainsbury will think when we shop there and get out our Tesco bags at his checkout.
We have had a couple of days at Giffard Park where we have enjoyed a couple of takeaways from the HO HO Chinese takeaway and Fish and Chip shop.In one half of the shop there is the Chinese takeaway counter and then in the other half is a Fish and Chip counter. Not the best we have ever had but it was ok and it makes a change to have something different.
