Thank you all for the love you have shown me in my last post, I appreciate it. I have just responded to the comments there and I feel so lucky to have this amazing WP community to engage with every single day. It is a blessing right now for all of us to be able to engage in isolation. We are lucky to have technology allowing us to communicate to each other across the world, what a fortunate time to be alive.

Yesterday I went to the shops. That really is an exciting story in 2020. I had to go to four in total as each one I went to didn’t have everything I needed. I needed mouthwash (currently sold out in supermarkets, so I had to visit the pharmacy), that was store one. Store two had no chopped tomatoes, but it did have turkey mince. Store three didn’t have chopped tomatoes either, but it did have straws that my flatmate asked me to get.

Also whilst I was buying flavoured teas I wanted to share this. Did you know that the company Twinings has this message on their packaging…

‘By appointment to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’

This is because Twinings supply goods to the Royal Family, and have done since the 1800’s. They have a shop over 300 years old in London that I will blog about when I can visit. A cool little fact I wanted to share with you all.

Store four was my little local shop that had everything. So far these smaller groceries have been the best for stock, most people emptying the supermarkets it seems. I got chopped tomatoes, passata and today made a banging chili. That will last me a few days until I have my next crazy adventure.

Just a little travel update, until the next…

 


 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak I am somewhat limited as to what I can do in London, but I aim to post as much as I can during this time. I promise to have some great posts coming your way once this is all over as I continue to explore London.

Stay home, stay safe and happy blogging!

Sam

    1. Good to hear Pat! I didn’t actually know Twinings were as popular overseas but it seems so πŸ™‚

      Chili came out good thankfully.

  1. Glad your staying safe. Over here in the states I know it is crazy, so I completely understand stores being sold out of so many items. Keep Blogging, I know I will.

    1. Thank you, I hope you are well too. I know the US (particularly NYC by the looks of it) has been hit badly, I hope things improve soon.

      Stay safe and yes, we shall keep blogging πŸ˜€

  2. I’m finding the smaller family owned grocery stores tend to be in stock a bit better than some larger grocery stores as well. Granted no one seems to be able to keep toilet paper, paper towels or tissues in stock, but I just now opened my 12 double roll pack of toilet paper and my aunt was able to track down a big pack of paper towels for me, so I’m managing ok for now! It does seem silly though to hear limit your trips when it takes multiple stops to find everything we need lately!

    1. You seem well stocked up! Haha. I think our smaller stores are stocking them pretty well here (thank goodness) and despite items still being out it is better than it was. I think my mistake is going too late in the day! But the more stores I have to visit, the more steps to take. Every cloud!
