Turns out C is a big fan of sugar snap peas. Seriously, huge. Who knew?!
She clung hopefully on to this particular pack of peas all the way around our local Aldi, all the while gurgling, laughing and occasionally shouting at our fellow shoppers, and brandishing her precious peas.
See that little tear in her eye? That’s from when I cruelly prised the packet from her hands in order to pay for it at the till.
Yeah, I’m mean, aren’t I?!
It’s ok though, the tears disappeared quickly as soon as the peas were back safe in her hands.
I guess I should be grateful that she takes a shine to a humble (if slightly middle class), healthy vegetable, instead of the sorts of things I take a shine to in Aldi – craft books, kids jodhpurs, wetsuits…
One thing’s for sure, if I could keep my purchases as modest and practical as this we’d have a lot more space in our house!
