A different kind of Lidl
On this basis, Jan should live forever. Mind you, I'm a bit partial to the old retail therapy myself. Even if it is popping to the supermarket for her indoors.
Talking about shopping, we popped into a Lidl in Knaresborough the other day, mainly to see what the difference is between an English one and a French one and, as Jan pointed out, I might still be in the market for a cheap crash helmet.
You could definitely see the similarity but in Knaresborough there was a distinct lack of centre aisles bulging with all the goodies that you never knew you needed and a bit more fresh food. I think it's fair to say that in an English one you could do your weekly shop, not what we felt in France.
Don't get me wrong we liked the Lidl in Sommieres, it's just a bit different here.
Now if you stop yawning at the back I'll tell you more, but not until you stop. Do you hear me?
