We’ve had a fair bit of snow today. During a gap in snow showers late this afternoon I decided to leave work and make a dash for home, calling into the supermarket on the way for some supplies.
I had not been walking for more than five minutes when it began snowing heavily. I’d planned to walk home as I was between trains. I walked into the supermarket looking like a snow woman and quickly picked up cheese, eggs and then got to the pizza counter. I stood looking at the pizzas – I was tired, wet and had either a 35 minute wait for the train or a two mile walk in the snow ahead of me. When I got home, I would have to make a pizza base, the topping and then cook it – this would take around 1 1/2 hours. The ready made pizza was calling my name very loudly.
Then I looked at the price – £4. I took a deep breath and walked away. It was a bit of a slog through the snow, and I was tired when I got home. I just did everything slowly, and we ended up eating at 7pm, only half an hour later than normal. I’m glad I made the pizza – and I’ve even got enough to freeze for next week’s tea.
How do you resist temptation in the supermarket?
Until next time, Tawney x
