No my friend is a single mum with a 5 yr old, rented house, declared bankrupt about 5 yrs ago, and has recently been cleared. she is currently off work with stress and anxiety, and is on quite a cocktail of drugs, and she often drinks. No she came on MSN the other day saying that she had just done her weekly £100 quid shop, (this is just for her and son). I asked what she had been buying 'gold?' just as a joke, I do a monthly shop at iceland to stock up the freezer, so i started telling her about some of the bulk buys you can get here and that our weekely shop for 3 of us was usually about £40. She she came back with i wont feed my self that crap, i buy fresh and you dont know what is in their food.. (hubby works for a number of food factories and sees excatly the same food go in to differerent boxes. I mentioned about fishfingers i think 20 for a quid, and she went on about how crap they probably were and she wouldnt feed her kid that crap, so this really started to put my back up, here i am trying to offer some advice as i know that she will be on sick pay, then she had the cheek to ask if her kid could have Ewans cast off shoes!! he is 5 but ewan is bigger than him and has bigger feet. THis will sound rude but if she can spend 100 quid on food she can buy her kid decent shoes!! Then last night she came on MSN asking if id been to iceland and what had i bought so was telling her and she said well i much prefer fillet steak made in to stroganoff, now i'm seeing read! and asking if my sausages were 100% pork as most have apple or crap added. And then went on that £100 quid shop would be better quality than a £39 quid shop that i did, i dunnno if the meds are making her argumenataive but i didnt go online for an arguement about food!!! she buys lots of fruit and organic meat, but i guarantee that her kid goes to bed on fish fingers and beans most nights, and she eats seperatly. In the end o lost my temper and said i couldnt careless if you shop at Fu##ing waitrose all i care is that my family gets a varied and balanced diet,, and she started going on so i turned off msn as i was getting upset. It felt like she was saying i feed my family crap and she doesnt, and it was almost making me in tears, as i try so hard to keep food costs down. We grow alot our selves. but she had no right to critises what i feed my family i was trying to offer help so that she might reduce her costs. I wont bother in future. Sorry for the rant but needed to vent at some on, preg hormones dont help my mood much!!
