                                      Online Food Shopping

At the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we registered with the big four supermarkets for online food shopping with home delivery, but no matter how many times we tried, we were unable to book a delivery slot. Someone told us about Iceland, and after a couple of attempts, we managed to secure our first home delivery. We continued with Iceland for a few more deliveries, but they lacked the range of items, and many basic foods including eggs, were generally out of stock. We had another attempt with Tesco, which proved to be successful. We have now had numerous deliveries from Tesco and we really appreciate there substitution policy if an item you ordered is out of stock.

The only hick up so far with Tesco home shopping, occurred last week when I was ordering fresh fruit. I commented to Pat that bananas were unbelievably cheap, but aware that Tesco are now matching Aldi prices for many items, I decided to click on 'Add to Basket' for what I concidered to be bananas at a bargain price. It wasn't until the delivery arrived and Pat began unpacking that she discovered why the bananas were so cheap. "You daft bu***r, she said, "You've ordered just one solitary banana!!"
