Tesco Day . . .

Thursday is Tesco Day in this house. We get a text message the night before to say that the delivery will be between the booked hours tomorrow, and on the day, the Tesco web site shows updated estimates of the van’s likely arrival time. Last week and this week, the arrival time forecast was 12.00 – 12.30 pm. On both days the van came backing up our road sharp at 11.30 am. To us this is of no account as we are here anyway. I just have visions of the van speeding around the Stewartry lanes with shock waves streaming to each side and the paintwork burning up due to the excessive heat generated. We have a great waving and thumbs upping match with the delivery men (and sometimes, but infrequently, delivery women). They off load at speed and put the groceries in the boxes provided in the garage, sort out the empties in their van, close up the roller side,climb into the cab and do much tapping of screens and then speed off to the next place. A splendid service with very few mistakes, and only occasional substitutions. No sign yet of shortages or lack of fuel.
