Lidl is NOT the way forward

I have just been chatting to a friend. The last time I spoke to her she told me that she had reliably been informed that Lidl may be the way forward! Apparently it's cheap - and we all love a bargain. My friend is quite delightfully middle class (she rides horses and grows her own organic veg!, and like me she is an afficianado of John Lewis) and she tells me that the Lidl store was a horrific experience never to be repeated. 

It was chock full of 'chav' food (being purchased by Chav ladies - wearing velour track suits - ugh!)- ie a huge array of fizzy pop, a myriad of brands and flavours of crisps, and generally lots of food packed full of e numbers and preservatives - all the things that you want to feed your children - NOT. Because she had a trolley she felt she had to buy something - so she purchased a packet of biscuits - which were incidentally NO CHEAPER than in Waitrose - and a six pack of mineral water.

She is now traumatised and will never be going to Lidl again. I think it was the pikey bird trying to teach her how to put her pound coin in the trolley that put the final nail in the coffin!!!
