So we are having a family Christmas at home this year, with a few people coming over for drinks and nibbles tomorrow, then just the 4 of us for Christmas dinner on Sunday. With this in mind, I decided I didn't need too much and headed to our supermarket, Carrefour, with a minimal shopping list. We have another new ayi who I feel much more comfortable with, so I was able to leave the children here to fight the crowds!
Seeing as they don't celebrate Christmas here, there weren't really any crowds, nothing like Tesco right now I should imagine anyway! But seeing as it was me on my lonesome and it was only 10am, I thought I would make it a bit of fun, so I took a heap of fun photos for all you amazing blog fans out there! (A quick aside here - I was sitting in Starbucks with the children and a friend of Sophie's yesterday when an American man started chatting to us about how William was just like his grandson - full of beans! Anyway, he said something that made me think....that you can tell alot about a culture from the way they shop...and
I think he was right, so I would love to hear your thoughts on what you can tell about Chinese people from these pics!)
The photos are the main bit to this blog, so I will move on with this bit now and try to describe the excitement! I do have to say that I have some away without parsnips or pigs in blankets as I could not find small pork sausages and parsnips are clearly something they have never heard of! We are doing a last minute M&S shop tomorrow, so there is a slight chance I might get some frozen ones but it is doubtful! Luckily, we brought a Xmas pud and stuffing with us!
