I have decided to go with a Mr S delivery on Sunday. Darling father brought in the very inexpensive tins of soup and I can save quite a bit on the honey etc. I have a delivery of around £100 and savings on full price (which is actually misleading, but hey-ho) is just over £32.
I actually booked a slot on each website to make sure I got it, and I haven't cancelled the one for Mr A yet. Mr A has a reasonable deal on 1l Famous Grouse, which is darling father's favourite tipple, £17 instead of £24.99. You can usually manage to get £20 for 1l of Famous Grouse somewhere, sometime each month, but £17 is a good deal and not as common. So two bottles of that (and yes, they would easily get drunk in a month) would save the delivery charge. Also Mr S doesn't do evil cat's favourite cat litter. I am not a big fan of evil cat at the moment, as I ended up spending half of last night on the floor, but I don't have the heart to change her cat litter. Some things are personal.
The deliveries could happen at the same time. I wouldn't be mortified but OH would be home and he might.
I shall have to have a think about this.
I am seriously considering getting a veg box just so that I have a box which I have to do something with. On the other hand, I have a watermelon that has been looking at me since Christmas and the pumpkin was an epic fail. And on the third hand I get so bored with the same old veg but never know what to try, especially if I call into Morrisons in all its glory and they have some seriously exotic fruit and veg. On the fourth hand, locally I can get carrots and sometimes leeks. There are usually potatoes and onions. This is not a varied selection. On the fifth hand, I don't usually cook a varied selection and I'm not sure I have an audience for this varied selection.
I may be over thinking this.
