Maybe try the Fortnum's Hereford mustard (with horseradish) next time?

Exactly.. that's all it is a shop... why people make such a fuss about someone having visited it. Is kinda weird :mrgreen:


It was you making a fuss, pretending you shop at Harrods... :dunno:

I fell over in Harrods once many years ago.
I was heavily preggers so I think I was maybe just off balance and slipped over.

All I wanted to do was just get up walk off and pretend it never happened, but these 2 members of staff saw it happen and insisted I sat down got me wateretc etc they were prob just worried I would go into labour in the middle of the shop.

Anyway I've never been back since, the embarrassment is still too much :oops:

I guess it's not easy trying to get up off the floor, and look like it never happened when pregnant :laughing: At least you fell over in Harrods... Not everyone has that claim to fame :gigglesnshit:

Mainly Tesco, with the occasional sortie into Waitrose and Morrisons. I have an amazing asian shop a few miles from me where i get all my spices for home-made curries and Biryani which are miles cheaper than the Schwartz spices in Tesco. I can also get fresh Naan Breads there which are lobbed in the freezer to use as and when.

99p for a 100g pack of whole back pepper corns, 1.49 for a pack of Golden Sultanas, 99p for Kashmiri chilli powder, 1.29 for 50g of Amchoor powder, i can get fresh Curry Leafs, Jaggary, and cinnamon sticks that knock all the supermarket prices into a cocked hat. The best one though is Saffron - 1.99 for a small 3g plastic box.

Morrisons for majority, then Lidl , then Aldi, Home Bargains and Farmfoods. I only wish I could name one store, but the buggers in this house want certain things from certain stores. I have it down to two and a half hours now. Still hate doing it though...
