the ignorance of some people!!!!!

Hi there everyone now before anyone thinks i am slagging it off i am not i shop there, pound land, 99p shop. Well today me and the family were in there shopping for gifts for kids at the food bank. We got some fab things for them.


     Now unknown to me a bloke had said to his son ewwww look at the cheap crap in their basket.My youngest heard him and gave him a look of disgust .Now when we was at the till his wife was next to us at the other till and the girl said u getting ready for Xmas with all theses goody's. We said oh we've done ours this is for the food bank. My oldest daughter said if parents can't  afford food then they can't get gifts .Now at the time i didn't know i wondered why she went bright red and put her head down.If i had heard him i would have said well if its that crap why have you got a basket full of stuff.!!!!! I was angry when she told me .
   I love going in theses shops. We got boys and girls toys and things for older kids.We can not afford much but we have more than some and i will do what i can to help.

What happened last Thursday and giving to the food bank.

Hey there all first please could people fill in my Sons surveys for his uni work. They are on the previous post.He would be most grateful for this.

Okay so last Thursday what a day well first we had the wood delivered.So this had to be moved and stacked so me and hubby set to work.

 Then we did some sorting in the home and getting the wood basket in the house its big so that's in the conservatory .Then i was sorting cardboard out for my oldest to box presents for her friends in America.So came through and heard a gurgling noise.My oldest daughter was having a seizure and smacking her head on the cupboard.So got her away from cupboard and shouted for her sister to get her dad.So ambulance called for and on our way to check her out and make sure their was no neck and back injury .The Paramedics and staff at grimsby hospital were amazing.

Then remembered while in hospital that the shopping was been delivered that night , now the delivery was not for us but for the food bank.We made in home in time and put it with the rest of the things we had bought.


So this is what we got everyone put in £10 for the Tesco shop so we had £50. We got cleaning and hygiene products as well as food,not a lot of people think of hygiene products imagine if you had not got any sanitary products or deodorant or toothpaste or toilet roll etc .Now we got selection boxes and chocolate calenders and other sweets.As we all know Xmas wont be long before its here .At least the kids can have a bit of joy at Xmas. We will be going this weekend for a few more bits then to pound land and other discount shops for a few toys to be given.My son interviewed one of the guys there and the story's he told him would break your heart. You don't have to give a lot ,give what u can afford .

Survey for you all to do :)

Dear to all those that read this blog,

It is I, joshythehipster (the son, if you've forgotten my hacking raids on this account)

With little permission and lots of resistance I have commandeered this blog for my own personal use...

So, here is the skinny of it:

I am making a documentary after christmas and I'm doing about food banks and why the demand has risen so much as of recent.

So, here are some links that lead to some of my surveys and remember, each survey equals to cookies!

Each should only take a few minutes of your time and it will be very much appreciated!

Kind regards and have fun!

Josh ^^

Now must run, I hear her coming....
