Size Really Does Matter



I have a real problem with size, not the size of people or the size of someones car, OH NO! I have a real problem with ordering the right size when it comes to Internet shopping.

Last week I did my food shopping online at a very well known supermarket (who shall remain nameless as they get quite enough publicity). I planned my weekly meals down to the last potato.
When the shopping arrived I could hear The Husband laughing to himself as he helped unpack it all. I went into the kitchen to see what all the hilarity was about. This is what I found.....

1. 1 humongous 3kg bag of pasta. (Enough to feed every Italian in the whole county).





2. 2 tiny bottles of wine. (Easy to store but not even enough for one glass).







3. A piece of Beef (I though it was a bargin at £4.99....Turns out it was
£4.99 per 1kg and the joint weighed 4.2kg....you do the math).






4. Light Philadelphia Cheese Spread (Ordered 2 and didn't realise they were buy 1 get 1 free so ended up with 4 of the bloody things).



5. Clover  (Its only The Husband that eats it so only get a small one...on this occasion I ordered a 1kg tub of it).




So you can now understand why he was chuckling to himself. I really do have no sense of weight or size when it comes to food shopping.
Up until yesterday I thought that this was my only problem, little did I know that it had now spread to shoes and clothes.

The Whirlwind had his taster day at Secondary school today and had to wear his PE kit, with that in mind I ordered him a brand new pair of size 4 trainers.

I'm not going to say another word other than spot the deliberate mistake.............. (His old ones are on  the right).

Lots of Love

  2. I am having a crap day today and that really cheered me up so thank you! I have been done many times on the supermarket shopping front! One example is one of those children's pizzas which isn't enough to feed one, which then had to go around four!!

  4. Your blog is so funny because we've all been there. I try to act non-chalant when the delivery man hands over six giant bottles of bleach! But the trainer oops is priceless. What did the Whirlwind say?
