I just buy things at shops. Seems to be quite an English thing to try to make it an event to flaunt social status. Buying stuff in Aldi and bringing it home in a Waitrose carrier bag so the neighbours can see it, etc.
We'll see what they're like after Brexit and the ports are jammed with goods nobody can agree on how to deal with. Nothing teaches humility like hardship ;)
Ten years looking after a severely disabled wife and five kids, two of whom are also severely disabled humble enough for you Kenny? ;)
Tesco/ASDA/Sainsbury's/Morrisons do home delivery which is brilliant for disabled people. Aldi/Lidl etc don't seem to give a shit as there probably isn't enough profit in it for them, so they don't get our money.
