did you get the things we needed? (an occasional series)

We needed milk, and some cream to go with the rest of last night’s rhubarb and pear crumble. A coin was tossed, and I went up to Jacksons^H^H Sainsburys at the top of the road; I bet Pete wishes it had been him – it would have been cheaper!

I got the milk and cream, and …

  • two bags of Gala apples, half price
  • two bottles of Italian red wine, half price
  • two bunches of English asparagus, half price
  • and The King’s Speech – £8, with a bonus copy of The Madness of King George, which is an entirely splendid film

Not a bad haul! Now I shall return to trying to fathom out the complexities of our various domains vis-a-vis mailservers. My head hurts.
