Do we need some prawns?

Friday am in Aldi

Have suggested inviting some friends round for afternoon tea so we are in Aldi buying biscuits. Ma is studying the breakfast cereal because that's where the biscuits were last time. 'I don't think we want these darling, the packets are awfully big'.

We select enough biscuits to feed the crew of the Ark Royal and move on.

'There's ham, cheese and prawns in the fridge mum so we're ok for sandwiches.'

'Is there? Oh lovely.'

Walk 6 feet.

'Should we get some prawns?'

'No it's ok we've got some in the fridge.'

'Oh have we?'

I go and get wine and find Ma at the freezer section.

'Ok Ma?'

'I was just thinking we need to get some prawns...'

    1. I believe you call them shrimp :) These are the small ones though, like little pink commas.
