“Before you take your coat off, just nip across to the health food shop to get some eggs will you?” asked Maggie as Meg pushed her way past me into the house, dropping her schoolbag in my path and kicking her wellies off. I put my gloves back on and strode off down the road.
As I reached the till, eggs in hand, a rather nice unbleached cotton bag was placed in front of me. “For you,” I was told.
I looked up quizzically. Was this part of a Christmas promotion? I didn’t really need a bag for only one box of eggs.
“My computer’s been offline for some time,” she continued. “I finally got it working again and did a Google search on the shop…”
It appears that my blog entry, Carrier Bag Etiquette, is on the second page.
It’s been quite a while since I last blushed.
I’ve suspected for some time that blogging under my own identity has the potential for embarrassing encounters.
Did I mention what wonderful people they are in Sunrise Wholefoods? Great selection of products, personal service and infinitely better value than Tesco.
Nice bags too.
