I know stress is a major factor in my back problems and yesterday it was a killer, we needed shopping but I really didn't have the energy to walk around the shop and it would involve DH and kids coming to help me, so instead I took a look at our *new* Drive. The major supermarkets have a new initiative, you do your shop online like tesco's and asda,(I even managed a discount code and can use my cashback scheme) you book your slot and they text you to say it's ready, it's a free service at the moment, you drive to the supermarket (which is about 20 mins away and 28 miles round trip) in a special area, tell them your here and out they come, all the shopping in nice brown paper bags, frozen in another bag, all nicely packed not thrown in like tesco's used to do to me and they PUT IT IN THE BOOT !!!! how cool is that, no lifting at all, I offered to put one bag in but he refused and said its *policy* OMG I am in love.....It's not quite as nice as a wander round the shop but for times when I need dog food/cat food/litter/milk etc it's a godsend. He said that home delivery will come if more people use it, I can't see it getting to us but you never know.
So rural France, doesn't seem so rural today and we've moved into more modern times :)
I'm going to be making courgette cakes again today and hopefully might get on the machine at some point, with back brace on and morphined up...
Have a fab tuesday x
