Let’s go shop­ping!

Woman's Own - - BEHIND THE PHOTOS -

My first stop is a Tesco su­per­store to pick up the shrubs... I mean grub. Un­like VB, I don’t have a pri­vate chauf­feur, so I have to make do with the next best thing – a cab. The driver looks at me like I’m mad when I get in, wear­ing a body-con blue dress, nude stilet­tos and shades. ‘You’re go­ing to Tesco?’ he asks doubt­fully, as he does a dou­ble-take at my Posh out­fit. ‘That’s right,’ I as­sure him, top­ping up my lippy. ‘I don’t do com­fort­able, dar­ling.’ Once inside the store I grab a bas­ket and make my way around the aisles, though it’s no easy task in four-inch stilet­tos. Glanc­ing at my shop­ping list, I be­gin to sus­pect I’m more likely to find these foods in a bird’s nest or my nan’s fish bowl, but I carry on. I find most of the items fairly eas­ily but I’m hav­ing no luck with the nat­u­ral ce­real, liq­uid amino acids and bee pollen. Af­ter five ar­du­ous rounds of the su­per­store and many more strange looks from other cus­tomers, I give up and ask a store as­sis­tant for help. ‘Ex­cuse me, could you take me to the bee pollen please?’ She looks stumped. I find the elu­sive pollen down the road in a health food shop, along with the liq­uid amino acids and ce­real. I head home to pre­pare for the next day...
