have married a richer man?
It really is that simple.

I would hate to be so poor I had to buy my food in M&S. My cook orders everything from Harrods.

and nothing you can say will convince me otherwise.
I ahve seen videos about it and everything.

No. We should all be eating battery chickens and battery eggs, none of your M&S or Mung bean loveliness. grin

Mine are all flown in from the finest french bistro it has 23432michelin stars, anything less frankly may as well be cat food.

M&S is for plebs. Fortnums can deliver by helicopter.

In fact i would go as far to say that if you cant afford to buy all your food in m&S you realy should eat nothing at all.
Some weeks I cannot get all i need there so we fast when we need to, but I really think the sacrifice is worhtwhile to my absolute smuggery.

Possibly. But I am a very recent convert to M&S food. I used to think that it was always about £10 for three items in there (any three!) - at least this is what it seemed like years ago. I recently ventured in there and was surprised to find that some of the ready meals actually worked out cheaper than the other supermarkets - especially the three for two Indian and Asian meals and the 1234 meals. I was also delighted to discover that they do reductions at the end of the day as well.

Ready meals - how common. That is what one's cook is for surely?

Up until we moved 6 weeks ago, for a year I shopped mostly at M&S. My DH is not rich but we are comfortable. What on earth has that got to do with whom I married?

Bit 1950's to suggest a woman can only afford to shop in M&S on the basis of her husbands earnings.

2shoes Why are you still here? Haven't you got a plane to catch? grin

You buy food from shops? I always leave it to the housekeeper to obtain provisions from the estate.

MrsMcCluskey Wed 27-May-09 22:30:21

<<<<whispers>>> I am taking the piss.
Thought it might be obvious.

ILoveDolly Wed 27-May-09 22:30:59

Actually I lied about Fortnums - but I am a fan and regular visitor to the M&S 'tramps corner' as we call it in our family (ie the reduced goods aisle). Otherwise my local supermarket is where I go. Luckily for smug-value, it happens to be Waitrose.

Goober she so didn't get it lol

ILoveDolly Wed 27-May-09 22:31:43

I love pretending to be posh on MN. No one can actually see how common I are. wink

Goober Wed 27-May-09 22:32:11

Tis laughable. Non?

FrannyandZooey Wed 27-May-09 22:32:26

god i really like m+s food at the moment
all the lunch things, and the cupcakes
i want to live on m+s lunch things and cupcakes with jam in them

MrsMcCluskey Wed 27-May-09 22:32:34

This isnt me typing my replies
Its my butler doing it for me.

MollieO Wed 27-May-09 22:34:52

Oh no Mrs M what has happened to your secretary? Shouldn't the butler be turning down your bed and preparing your nightcap? Just can't get the staff these days, can you.

Heated Wed 27-May-09 22:35:40

If you knew the conditions some Harrods food is prepped in, you'd prefer Lidl. Avoid the luxury Christmas pud.

Ach just nip round the back and fish it out of their skips grin
