For example, take today. A fine day, a normal Saturday. I always do my big grocery shop online seeing as I don't drive and carrying heavy goods home by public transport is not my idea of fun. So I have it delivered. But invariably there are items I need to purchase that don't come as part of that shop, some are necessary and others are just something to treat myself.
So I headed into the town centre where I live for a little light consumer shopping. I first tackled a supermarket, not the one I get my groceries delivered from but another one. They sell a couple of items not available in the first one so I headed in for those. Having successfully avoided the cakes, biscuits and confectionery aisles, I purchased the couple of items I required and headed into the town centre itself.
Now there is much in the time old advice: Never shop on an empty stomach.
I made my shopping trip before I had eaten lunch but that was my own fault. However being hungry did not help when I went into town. I was heading for two shops only. Iceland to purchase some Slimming World products and Candle Delight for a new Yankee Candle I had been told about. I headed for the candle first of all and to get there I had to head past the local bakery and the smell coming out was heavenly. Fortunately for my slimming plan, the queue wasn't so heavenly and was out of the door so I scurried past, savouring the smell of freshly baked sausage rolls. No more temptations hit me and I purchased my candle as pictured.
