If suddenly there is an upward blip in the economy...

If suddenly thre is an upward blip in the economy over the next few weeks it's because I am back on-line. I noticed that there were a number of retailers in trouble over the last few weeks and I can only presume this sorry state of affairs is my fault, because I have been unable to shop. On-line that is.
I don't like shopping  as a general rule because I don't like to travel much and have the hassle of parking in ever smaller parking slots. I swear supermarkets and parking companies make them smaller and smaller each and every year so they can squeeze more and more in to make more money and of course to annoy their clients us the parking public. I say it is a false economy if you are a supermarket because an angry punter is less likely to return but I fear the parking compnaies couldn't give a toss unless that is one could say because of their lack of care your car was the one that got damaged, but I suppose they have a get out clause for that don't they? But I digress.
Shopping and the reasons I don't as a rule.
I am not good with carrying all my purchases. I get frustrated with all that packaging and having to drag my boys with me all over the place.
I spend most of my time forcing the little toads to sit still in one place and not to touch. But as soon as I say that they cannot sit still and they have to touch. There are loads of shops I don't visit as a rule because of them. Anywhere with anything breakable and anywhere with anything clean. Rules out most doesn't it.
So when I went off line my shopping drastically reduced and my tension rose in invesrse proportion. I mean I had to take the little rotters with me. Suffice to say after one minor foray I just stopped shopping and we have been living lean, as I like to say, on stuff in the freezer and the stuff we can pick. I did note that my husband began to spend more time away on trips than was usual or dare I say it necessary and the boy's teachers reported that they had hearty appetites at school....
Anyway I am happy to report everything is back to normal. It is safe for people to go back onto the A14 between Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds as I am no longer to be seen on that road  with overlaoded car, out of control children and  wild eyed aggressive driving.  The economy will bounce back as I have an awful lot of shopping to do.
PS Just think if BT got it's act together how much more shopping could be done as according to statistics 14% of us are not  connected properly ( I fear it is much higher but until I get all the figures I will go with these) If each of us just spent £10 a week on-line that would be an extra £4,368,000,000 added to the economy.

You're a brave soul, trying to single-handedly rescue the British economy.
Keep calm and carry on!

There's only one answer. Tattie Weasle for Chancellor of the Exchequer. Then you could sort out the economy AND they'd have to get you a proper connection.

I may have, ahem, taken care of several of the 10 pound slots, I'm good at online shopping but like you not a great fan of the real thing. In facts parts of Walle made complete sense x

I'm not a shopper either and do most of it online these days. Though I do prefer going to the supermarket as I get fed up with online grocery deliveries missing out vital items; such as 8 loaves of bread once, grrrrr!

I know what you mean about taking the kids shopping. It's hard work and shouldn't be attempted under normal circumstances!!
