|The Friday Five on a Tuesday
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
As I was away all weekend, I didn’t get a chance to post this on Friday, or indeed, Sunday, as I normally do. It is in fact closer to next week’s FF than it was to last week’s. Taking lateness to new and dizzying heights, wahey!
- Do you make up a dinner plan for the coming week?
Sometimes. It depends on how busy we are. We usually do a shop at the weekend to prep for the week but more often than we’d like, it involves at least one pizza night, one “yes, you can eat PB&Js in front of the television” night and one “cannot be arsed to cook, TO THE CHIPPY!” night.
- Do you make up a shopping list and stick to it when shopping?
Yes. I have problems concentrating in supermarkets. I’m not sure why. I’ve tried to do the “once up and down every aisle” technique that works for the bloke, but it does not work for me, and I end up getting distracted trying to work out whether a “deal” is actually a savings on a per-unit basis or not, or deciding if I would like to try a new flavour of herb tea, or mourning the out-of-stock status of the kriek lambic, or just pondering my shoes because it is all too much. Lists help me to focus.
- What is one thing that you always buy, but never put down on a list?
If it’s not on the list, it does not get bought. Even if it’s milk or bread or something I literally buy every week.
- Is there anything that you always think you are out of and come home with it to discover you already have a year’s supply on hand?
The 17 tins of tomatoes in our pantry speak for themselves.
- Do you get your groceries delivered?
The occasions on which I have groceries delivered are (1) When the bloke is going to be away for at least five days and (2) Special occasions, like the bloke’s birthday last weekend when I ordered a vast quantity of cheese and wine for our trip to Wales. Otherwise, not on a regular basis, no.
