Ok guys as you know Bacon and I have been discussing shopping lists and the prices we all pay for day to day stuff…having done the shopping today let me say arghhhhh …I am so far behind the eight ball that it was a breeze in breeze out wit goods in tow in the trolley that universally is despised by us all!! four wheels none work….shopping centre reno’s had me negotiating a miasma of workmen..broken tiles..people dazzled by the complexities of parking ..seemingly it is ok to park behind someone waiting for them to leave even though clearly they have no way out..and are wrestling a large double shot latte four little party pies as we call them and a trolley that needs calipers…ok it was 2.30pm and I had just realised that I still had not eaten..all day…don’t ask I won’t tell…
I eased into my car and deliberately ate my pies while said el’stupido waited for me to leave ..still no clue I had no way out..the pies were nice and the coffee was crappy…just sayin…bolted home dogs unimpressed as I had also had to go to a craft shop..then a camera shop…then the pharmacist…you get the picture kids..
I arrived home goodies in tow…shoved it in pantries freezers cupboards shoe boxes bedrooms barns laundries…sing with me folks …so then onto the next joy the making of blueberry jam for a comp..anywho…I have my list…I myself am listing…as if on a ship..sinking into the quagmire of grocery hell….
So a loaf of bread can be between $2.00 and $7.00 Aus
Gallon of milk..we buy in litres and averages at $1.00 a litre
Dozen Eggs can be $4.00 Aus but Free range which I buy are $6.00
Petrol is $ 1.54 Aus on the cheap a litre
Movie tickets are $17.00 Aus adult so my kids who have a life tell me bwahahaah
Jar of peanut butter (or as my kids used to call it woo woo peter??) $4.65 Aus for a 375 gram jar
Fancy feast for the girls usually $ 1.20 Aus a tin
And the country that was founded on the Lamb will now charge up to $23.00 Aus per kilo for a leg ….
I would have more prices but my minds a goggle and I sadly have minutes to type and this jam to get sorted and it’s 10pm at night ..I do believe I am again behind 😉
