It is said that one in every eight pounds spent in shops in the UK, is spent in Tesco. That's 12½p out of every pound goes in to Tesco's tills. And that's just one supermarket. Don't know about you, but I think that's scary and have done for a while. Supermarkets in general are dominating our lives. And they're spreading out like wildfire.

I was hoping that my third post about Dell would be a positive one. I like positive things. Positive is good. I'd hoped I'd find some amazing Dell person on Twitter or something who could make it all happen; sort out the mess and make me a happy customer. Well. I was hoping.
Today (Tuesday) Walsh Western (Dell's couriers) will attempt to deliver my PC to a completely wrong shipping address.
If any retailers near me sold 14" laptops with an Intel Core i7 processor, then this wouldn't be a tale I'd be telling. But they don't which meant I couldn't just walk in to a store and buy what I needed.
When it comes to shopping, the internet has changed the world a lot. No more do you need to wander aimlessly round shopping malls and high streets. Rare goods can be purchased from specialist retailers based around the world. Just click the mouse and get it delivered straight to your. Well unless you're out when it arrives...
It's now been two years or so since we went back in time and got a milkman. And it's lovely. The satisfaction of holding those chunky glass pint bottles. The celebration as you press down on the foil top… And that's just the start for having our milk delivered is providing financial benefits to our household.
I've been working at home today after breaking part of a tooth off by biting into a bit of stone in my muesli resulted in a quick repair job at the dentist. And no, I never thought I'd say such a lame excuse for not travelling to White City either.
So you decide you want to get milk delivered to your doorstep. Like how it used to be in the good old days. How do you go about it then?
Ah yes, the milkman. Glass bottles, foil tops and electric milk floats silently trawling the neighbourhood.
I hadn't expected to go into a Woolworths before "the end" but I found myself having just left the Halifax in Tooting and decided to visit the one other the road - a one last time event.
