I am happy for the kind folk who work in my local Conad supermarket that their company is doing so well in the midst of a recession - I really am. It's just that, with its profits up by 5.1 % at the end of 2010 and its market share at 15.4%, you would think that the chain could afford the delivery cost of a few saucepans.
The loyalty stamps I collected over the Christmas period entitled me to a saucepan, you see, but by February, when I finally had enough stamps, my local store only had the lids in stock. The staff dutifully wrote my name down and promised I would eventually get the pan but it's been rather a long time, don't you think? The lid I have is very smart but it's not much use without the pan!
Anyway, pazienza: it gives me an excuse to post this reminder of Wales:
