I've just been home for the weekend.

Driving back from the airport we passed a big new Tesco, prompting my Mother to exclaim;

"It's a beautiful, beautiful shop."

This will give you some idea of the unremitting bleakness of where I come from.


  • Thank christ you don't have a Sainsbury's.

  • There are some nice bits, but not Tesco.

  • Noooooo???? I have just squirted tea from my mouth all over my keyboard in shock/hysteria/amusement.

  • Yes.

    To explain, in Norn Iron, big shiny new UK supermarkets are a fairly recent development.

    We had Dunnes, Stewarts, and Wellworths. Dark, dank and dirty, all.
