Living near to a very big M&S I often stroll round the foodhall. It does look good I have to admit and there are certain items that I love to buy. There fresh bread tastes like nothing I have had before and although a little more expensive well worth paying. The friut and veg are excellent - again you pay extra but it does last longer than a couple of days. The only problem I have is when it comes to the other products. I cant seem to part with my money to buy things such as Pizza and some of the chinese dishes - they seem extremely over priced and I am always of the opinion that I could make a lasagne better than paying over the odds for it. So I frequently go in thinking today I will get something nice for tea - but come out with bread! I think all the food is probably very good - if only I could actually part with my money. I think if you can afford it and really dont mind then the products are alot better than your average supermarket.
I took a trip to the nearest Morrisons to me yesterday - Widnes. I have a 3 year old and 7mth old so therefore required a trolley with a normal seat and bucket seat... could you believe they did not have one outside the shop. I went at 9 in the morning so it wasnt as though they had all been used. Anyway, after struggling carrying my baby and making sure my 3 year old didnt get run over - I found the trolley man who did not even apologise and just said "Oh yea, we only have 6 at the moment!!!" I was so shocked. He then went round the car park looking for a trolley - after about 10 minutes he returned with one with two bucket seats so I had to put the baby in one of those and stand my 3year old inside the trolley otherwise he just gets in the way of shoppers running around. The thing that really annoys me about the Widnes store is that the customers and the staff are all pretty rude and ignorant - most giving me dirty looks because I had a 3 yr old on the loose inside the trolley - what was my alternative??? I now know - go to Sainsbury's!!
I have been meaning to do my monthly shop via Tesco Direct ever since I had heard of it but to be honest thought no, I actually quite like going round the supermarket when the children aren't with me and browsing. I thought doing it via the internet would make it very impersonal and not much fun. How wrong I was! Have just placed my first order which will be delivered between 1pm and 3pm tomorrow - so may have been a little premature giving it the thumbs up but reading the opinions on here I don't think I will. Anywway I wrote down my list and logged on and when I had finished I actually felt like I had been round the supermarket without all the hassle of pushing a trolley and queuing up. I was also worried that I would spend too much because it is so easy to click on products but I would have to say the opposite happened. I could easily compare prices and quantites and made an informed choice. It is brilliant and the £5 you spend for delivery has got to be worth it especially if you order all the bulky things as no matter how big my trolley is I seem to get in all in but once it goes through the checkout can't get it back in. One other brilliant thing is that there are 8 of us going away at New Year and staying in a cottage in Anglesey, which we tend to do every year, we are going for a week and the food transportation is always a nightmare but guess what Tesco deliver there too - it is fantastic!
This one gets the big thumbs down from me. I am absolutely sure no one cares who lives in a house like this? David Frost is just so annoying, he has a really droney voice and the programme just attracts contestants whose careers have gone down the pan! It seems that the majority of daytime TV is really bad and I am finding the evening viewing becoming pretty similar. Why is the world obsessed with other people's life's - can't they get on and live thier own! PLEASE do we have to have this programme on our TV's!
This was great when it first came out and it was bearable to watch, just, with Jeremy Beadle but since Lisa Riley has taken over it has just become awful. The odd clip still makes you chuckle but I feel as though I have seen it all before and really dont like the ones where people are hurting themselves - they are not funny! It is currently being repeated every week day night on ITV at 17.05 which does come in handy for me as my 3 year old loves it and it means I can put it on whilst getting tea - so that says it all really it caters for a very young audience!
I have to agree with Coral on this one. It is complete drivel! I know they are real people with real complaints but the way Judy acts makes me think whether infact she is a real Judge. She seems to enjoy making people squirm and being down right rude to them. I know she is trying to find the truth and in order to do that sometimes it is a little necessary to act in this manner, but come on is the sort of stuff we want on our TV - I dont think so!!
For those who dont know Jolen is a facial bleacher that can be used for hair on your face anywhere but your eyebrows. it comes in a groovy little pot and you have to mix it with a spatula supplied into some more cream. I use it on the dark hair on the side of my face - don't know why but I am just aware of it and having short hair bleach it - sad I know!! Anyway I always used Louis Marcel which was quite expensive and then I tried Jolen a couple of times. Was not that impressed with it as it had to be left on my face longer than usual and found myself repeating it again in several weeks where previous it would last about 6. I have now found an excellent alternative which is Boots own. It is cheaper, more effective and lasts longer.
I have used various shaving cremes/gels for my legs and have had differing results. Most seem to sting my legs and bring more of those little red spots up - guess I must have sensitive skin when it comes to shaving stuff. So I tried expensive to cheap including makes such as Gillette, Boots own, Sainsbury's but the one that has come up trumps is Asda's! It is called Asda Shaving Gel for Women with aloe vera and comes in 200ml can and costs around £2. I find because it is a gel you only need to use a tiny bit and it lasts forever. I am one of the weird people who also shave my arms which will mean it will last longer for those doing just legs. It has a pleasant smell and only brings up red spots if the bath is too hot.
Please lets get rid of Trisha - why does anyone want to tune in first thing in the morning to people's problems. We don't want to start the day completely depressed. Some of the guests are just there for the publicity and surely if you have a major problem with someone you dont need to come on public TV and confess all. There must be something better to put on - like watching paint dry - this just has nothing going for it and to watch Trisha being so condesending makes me just cringe. Please there must be something better than this!
I dont know why it is compulsive viewing but Paddington Green is. This new series is featuring mostly newcomers and it gives you an insight into how other live. In the last series to watch Jackie the prostitute stuggle helplessly through her life and come up trumps at the end was very uplifting - she must be proud of herself. At the moment they are following a women who is selling everything and trying to get over to LA, leaving her 6 year old son behind - could never do that myself. A couple who have been together for sometime and have children and have decided to get married in two weeks and are completely disorganised. It also features a very courages blind man who lost his sight when he was mugged and his boyfriend who lost his leg in that pub bombing in London last year - really hope they get back together. So as you can see it is pretty interesting and is a slightly different style fly on the wall documentary - give it a try, it is on twice a week on BBC2 Tue and Thur I think around 10.20pm
I can't say I make a point of watching it but if I remember it is on I tune in. This is well structured, easy to follow quiz which bascially begins with 15 contestants and whittles down to just one. William G Stewart presents it well and has no annoying habits and therefore does not put you off watching. The other great thing is you can actually answer some of the questions. I also find the questions ask teach you things you didnt know - so it is very much a learning experience. I compare it to Blockbusters but for adults. Tune in on Channel 4 it is good.
I agree with the consensus of opinion here - get it off!!! This IS the worst programme on TV and if ever I flick through the channels and it is on I cringe. What is the attraction? Dale Winton treats all contestants as if they are simple and I suppose the contestants act as though they are - or are they?? Anyway, I think it is completely pointless and, well, rubbish. I cannot see the point to the programme and cannot believe there is anyone out there who says "Oh, Supermarket Sweep is on" - if there is then get a life!
Funny, I always liked Panorama and thought that it gave an unbias view of a particular situation. However, since it covered an organisation which I worked for I now know how one sided it can be. During interviews things were cut out and basically what was suppose to be showing the general public both sides did not. I still do watch Panorama if the subject content takes my interest but remember it is only one side of the story and the producers will write to influence you the way they want to.
I like some of the other opinions on here have never found a deodrant that I have been completely happy with - until Dove! I first came across is as a free sample given out in my Bounty bag at hospital when I had my baby. They supplied a little spray can and I have never bought anything else since. It does not seem as harsh as other sprays on the market but that is probably because of the moisturiser in it. The smell is particularly nice and when you sweat that is the smell you get. I would recommend everyone try it as it is different from the majority.
I find the Rimmel lipstick pretty much like the eyeshadow - good value for money and lasting colour. My favourite Rimmel lipstick is 139 coffee shimmer as it matches the eyeshadow I like to use. I cant remember how much they are but I know it is not much. They apply well and because they are cheaper you can be more adventurous with the colour because you dont mind risking buying an unusual one. One complaint I do have though is that I tend to get use to one colour and really like it and by the time I go out to buy the same one again they have changed the range. I know colours and fashion moves on but it would be nice if there is away you could continue to get the particular colour you like to use.
