This week we had our basic food shop delivered, minus meat, bread and fruit and veg. We plan to use a partnership based supermarket for this eventually, and top up with Co-op, but this was a good start and changing too many things in one go is too hard.
This morning we took the girls into Oundle and mooched about while Max shopped. He reckoned that aside from accidentally buying the nice oil, it cost no more than it normally does to any great degree and was a very enjoyable hour of being together, looking at things and chattering.
It feels good to have made a start; the girls are very keen on the idea too and I’m pleased to think we’re hopefully going to inspire then to shop more thoughtfully as they become adults.
