Bloody hell, I fancy a week of prancing around a field dressed entirely in Boden dicussing food related nonsense with Ocado.Sounds fab, I think we should all go.No kids though cos for that price I'd be expecting the Ocado van to be making regular wine drops!grin .

I'd want paying to go camping. All that discomfort and lack of sleep. Ugh.

The only comparison I can think of was when Zara sent me an email confirming my order had left their 'fulfilment centre' I think you mean warehouse, pouncy fuckers.

I use Ocado, where's my invitation?
I think I've even got a pair of Boden boots I could wear, might borrow a cath kidston bag off my Mum as well!!!
I want to ponce around a field - there will be ensuite loos won't there?

Is this a new way of getting free labour?! So free in fact, the punters pay ocado to come sleep in a field and get up at the break of dawn to pick potatoes.

I got that email. I snorted and deleted. What a croc of pretentious shit.

£675 would be an all inclusive week abroad, what under 21 year would happily pay that to cook,clean, gather food and then sleep in a tent.

But there's foraging and a wood-fired sauna! When I was in that age group it was Lloret de mar and all the vodka you could drink.How times must have changed.
