Where do you do your weekly shopping? - The poll

Thinking about changing providers because Aldi products are crappy brand imitations and Waitrose are a bit of a liberty.

You an choose up to two options

Tesco for the usual shite, Waitrose for the good and poncey stuff (and better quality fish & meat when I can't be arsed going to the fishmonger/butcher).

Waitrose range is pretty impressive, I find myself getting bored by the standard grub on offer in usual supermarkets.

Am fond of the "World Foods" aisle, although that's gone from an aisle to a shelf since I moved here :(

Ocado for regular shops.
Waitrose for any random stuff needed (Buckhurst Hill has one supermarket... We do have two separate Costas each side of Waitrose and this makes me slightly angry).
M&S if I'm working away from home (Ealing, Hammersmith, Kensington, Fleet St) and want some lunch, their flatbreads are amazing.

This is potentially the most middle class post I have ever made.

Buckhurst Hill to Ealing sounds like a fun commute

It's not fun, but tbh I'm basically full time working from home; only really have to go in for meetings or to see my boss, so maybe four times a month. I also make sure I avoid rush hour. Good friend of mine lives in Hayes so it normally ends with beer. If ever you're that way, avoid Northolt like the plague.

I was commuting to Hammersmith (well, Ravenscourt Park) every day last year, now that is a bitch of a commute, about three hour round trip - fifteen hours a week spent commuting.

Used to work in Hammersmith and live near Stamford Brook

Ended up hating West London - Well... The part north of the river. Although the Raven pub by Ravensvoirt Park Station was alright

Really? I can imagine a ton of worse places to live in London. Not that I'd particularly fancy Stamford Brook, but hate-worthy?

The area was decent enough, think it was more to do with the fact I was in a job I hated living on my own in an area where I knew nobody

When's my next therapy appointment doc?
