I’m not joking. Yesterday when we were doing one of our last minute shops at the large Waitrose down the road, I noticed one lady stuffing her large wheelie-bin shopping bag full of groceries. You know the kind that our mothers – or grandmothers – had? I looked at her hair – no, it wasn’t grey; I looked at her clothes; she was wearing Converses and a pair of boyfriend jeans. Hmm. I glanced around to the other tills and saw three other similar wheelie shopping bags, and only one of them was owned by a very old woman. Now this could be the answer; I could combine my afternoon walk with the dog with a shop at Waitrose, wheel the shopping back home and hey presto two birds and so on…what do you think?
Should I become a bag lady?
