We normally go shopping on a Friday night but due to commitments tonight we set off for Sainsburys last night instead.

About 2 mins into the journey I realised I hadnt brought my wallet, but it was OK, Mrs Axe had her card with her.

Once in Sainsburys and just past the Fruit and Veg I realised I was maskless (still compulsory in Scotland). Not only had I forgotten to put it on, I hadnt even brought one. No one had challenged me and Mrs Axe hadnt noticed either. Luckily she had a spare with her.

Then I went to the checkout while Mrs Axe went off to Customer Services to return a few items. Shoping scanned and bagged and I realise I have no means of payment and Mrs Axe hasnt returned. I have to phone her to get her to come over and pay while annoying the customer behind me.

[Depending on what phone you’ve got adding contactless payment to your phone would solve that one Baz. I hardly ever use the physical card anymore]

Just picked up my ipad to read my book. Couldn't work out why the print was so big. Then remembered Id just got new reading glasses.

Had some apple crumble ready dished up for a microwaved second course on a kitchen counter, next to some soya chunks and minced onions in a bowl that were ready to add to a stew in the making. Oddly enough, they looked rather similar. Nearly added the apple crumble to the stew. Could have called it a medieval vegetarian stew, I suppose.

That's an interesting culinary idea.

Have to say though: microwaving crumble - that's barbaric!
