We're going Asda tonight to get drink and all foods except veg, I'll get them on Saturday or Christmas eve morning from the farmers market.
Is it going to be hell? H is coming as are the kids....oh gawd....

Might not be too bad tonight, but certainly better than waiting until the weekend - good luck!
I was in Tesco last night and it was dead if that helps?

We live right by the M25 DD and traffic has been horrendous the past few days. I'm dreading driving anywhere at the weekend hence wantingit out the way as soon as. H can work the weekend too this way.
19/12/2012 at 15:04
Oh yes, traffic certainly won't be fun - keep hearing about closures and jams on the M25!

It took us over an hour to get from my train station to L's nursery on Monday night. It's usually a 10min drive with 4 sets of traffic lights worse way! Then another 55 mins coming back home. 8 incidents apparently and today there has been another accident.

I popped in to the supermarket yesterday lunch time and it was ridiculously busy. Good luck

Oh god Kat, can you go in the middle of the night?
19/12/2012 at 15:45
Gosh just the thought of your drive there is enough to make me want to pull my fleecy blanket over me even more!
I've told H we'll do ours on 22nd.. We do however live on an army garrison, and everyone goes on leave on 21st.. My thinking is, that of course, they'll all pack up their cars and head home for either the weekend, or for Xmas, and leave us to a nice, quiet, empty shop... Right? I've suggested we go 8pm.. Thinking 10pm may be wiser, if it's terrible when we get there, i'll turnaround and come back!

I'd be going at 9pm after L is in bed!
19/12/2012 at 16:18
Sod going later. H can share the misery plus Im not carrying that amount of cash with me...oh and we are using his car as mine has a puncture *sob* & i hate driving manual lol
19/12/2012 at 16:20
In that case take a hip flask or a can of g&t with you!
Waitrose was quite quiet today which was unexpected. You might get lucky?
Oh well Maccys on the way home and a vino when you get in then
19/12/2012 at 16:24
No more fat foods i feel so bleurgh after my burger last night. But have wine in fridge and choc to bribe Lou with lol

Best of luck, purely because the dartford crossing has been closed today for the 3rd day running causing havoc! If its the GreehNhithe one your going to I'd wait to much after rush hour. Having said that I went into dartford this morning and nowhere seems to be as busy as I imagined it would be?..

Ooh good luck. I went to Asda for a few bits about 2.30pm and it was packed. I dread doing our shop on Saturday morning.
19/12/2012 at 18:19
Hope you survived!!
19/12/2012 at 18:40
All done, home & put away. It was empty yet H still rushed me so no doubt we forgot a few bits.
19/12/2012 at 19:27
Ah well that was good. Did you get lots of lush stuff? I'm dead excited to go on Saturday to fill my trolley with nice treats.
19/12/2012 at 20:13
