Stress Free Shopping

Woman, Sleeping, Sofa, Home, RelaxingCan I just say sorry that I have been too tired to respond to some of the gorgeous comments I have received of late. I appreciate them so much! They are lifting my heart.

My excuse is that working for the NHS at the moment is like running a marathon every single day! I come home needing to rest. I read posts…but I have so little energy to communicate after all the talking I have done all day.

grasesaI had to go shopping for myself and my landlord’s family yesterday. I walked into the supermarket and was shocked. It’s not just toilet paper that had vanished! There was no meat (that does not matter to me because I am vegetarian) and all sorts of other sections were virtually depleted. But something strange happened….

I had a list of what my landlord’s family wanted and in my head I knew what I had ran out of. So I wandered into the chilled section…through to the fruit and veg section, round to ambient goods and this is what happened. It was as if someone had gone ahead of me and made sure that everything on their list, and everything in my head was waiting for me…but the very last one. I picked up the last one on the shelf of all of the following:

  • Edam cheese
  • Skimmed lacto-free milk
  • Hummus
  • Greek yoghurt
  • Goat’s butter
  • Prawns
  • Haddock
  • Salmon
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Peppers
  • Rocket
  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Strawberries
  • Lemons
  • Eggs
  • Rice (because I am tall, I saw a pack on the very top shelf and used my umbrella to reach it!)
  • Taylors coffee
  • Granola
  • Ginger cordial

I had to get some other things as well. But everything else there was a decent amount of. All of the listed items, I arrived at the shelf on time to pick up the last one. How on earth did that happen?

Girl, Young, Model, Blonde, PortraitI was so relieved! I left the supermarket with my spirits slightly lifted. It was a stress free shop. Phew!

It’s been another long day…but I have a happy snug feeling. I love LOVE. I am tired, but there is so much love around me. My family are wonderful. My friends are wonderful. My neighbours are wonderful. Jack is wonderful. Goldfinch is wonderful. Your lovely posts and your comments on my posts are wonderful.

In a world where there is so much worry, there is also a lot of wonderful. I am so grateful for it! I going to drink my warm lacto-free milk with some honey and drift off into sweet sleep.

PLEASE REMEMBER THIS FOR ME…YOU AND I AND EVERY HUMAN ON THIS PLANET, NO MATTER WHERE THEY LIVE – WE ARE PART OF THE HUMAN FAMILY. OUR FAMILY IS UNDER THREAT RIGHT NOW. SO WE HAVE TO LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER – OK!!

SLEEP WELL xx

    1. Thank you! It will be nice to breath a sigh of relief when we know the danger is reduced.

      I hope things don’t go back to quite how they were before. I hope I truly hope that when the coronavirus happens people no longer feel the same way about silly things. Who cares about designer clothing, designer handbags and sunglasses? Who cares who cuts your hair? Should people be worshipping popstars, footballers and actors? Should people be striving after bigger houses, flashy cars, luxury holidays?

      I hope that the world is a different place when this is over. I hope that love and kindness and care and unselfishness are celebrated more than ever before!!!
