I think I know the answer to this as no French woman could possibly buy her vegetables without seeing and feeling them, but having looked at the websites of the supermarkets in my area - Leclerc and Champion they don't seem to offer the good old online ordering with delivery service that English supermarkets do. Is this possible - is there really no remote shopping?
I am struggling with ms and the idea of going to the supermarket makes me feel faint and makes my stomach do very unpleasant flips.
The only ones I'ved used are Telemarket and Picard (also when I was pg so I can sympathise). Telemarket is mainly monoprix goods. Never really had a problem with the quality of produce - not as good as the market but about as good as normal supermarket produce in France IYSWIM.
Sorry to hear about the MS - it's a pain, isn't it!
Hmm, well, as for childbirth, I admit I didn't manage either of mine without some form of pain relief but, believe me, by the time it hits you'll just be so DESPERATE not to be pregnant any more that you'll take any amount of hassle in order to get the baby out . There's a kind of "inevitability" to labour!
Houra is good (it's Cora products), but depending on where you are they may not deliver or may charge extortionate delivery rates, with a fairly high minimum purchase required. I've been using houra since DS2 was born, and considering the extra cost as part of the expense of having a baby, but am going to stop soon.
Picard is good, too. Delivery is cheaper, at least where I am, and their frozen veg are excellent...
Thanks AA. Yes, have a Cora nearby, but I find it quite expensive and not great quality. No Monoprix, that I'm aware of. This has been really useful for your tips though, thank you. And I am a huge fan of Picard, got two close by.... if only we had a bigger freezer! I have filled up the fridge and DH will be going shopping next time!
