Green Tea product kit and MAD shopping

I decided to give myself a Christmas treat. I've never ever used any sisterlock product and have always wanted to try the moisturiser and reconstructor. So I went ahead and purchased the the green tea shampoo kit which consists of shampoo, moisturiser&reconstructor. When they'll arrive is another matter, but I'll come back to give my verdict once I've used them. I can hardly wait to try the moisturiser.
We've had quite a lot of snow in the last few days. I had a few 'hairy' moments on the icy roads slipping and sliding. Today I was taking my boys to aylesbury to be picked up by a friend and taken to Winslow for a 'sleepover'. The A41 was closed off due to the extreme icy conditions. After 1 hr attempting to reach aylesbury via berkhamsted, I turned round and came home. Not before I'd stopped at McDonald's to 'compensate' the boys and do a spot of shopping at Tescos. The place was like a mad house. Why is it we act as if the shops will be on strike for foreseeable future? I mean how much can one possibly eat over the holidays?( I bought a huge chicken, even though I had intended to buy it on chirstmas eve. When I say huge I mean...just how does a chicken get to look like a baby turkey? OK I won't ask. I'll just pray, cook it and eat it.)I mean people appeared to be panic buying. Stress levels were elevated with people pushing, shoving and shouting. Not to mention all the wet mud tramped in from the sleet/snow outside.I got bumped on the rear by shopping carts no less than 3x. I was desperate to get out, so I chose to avoid long queues and use the self- serving check out. What a lark! Every 2 or 3 mins, an annoying electronic voice spoke some gibberish about waiting for assistance. What's the point having those things if they don't work properly?
Anyway, I got home safely and cooked some stir fry chicken/vegetable rice for dinner.

Hahaha I heard you kissing ya teeth for real! What's more I've got to brave sainsbury tomorrow. Woman, I've taken the palaver to God in prayer. I shall come back safely and report. You are very wise to go tesco.com. I hear it takes ages to set it up right? This has to be one of the new year resolutions...shop online.And def the last time I use those self service check outs, unless I'm carrying 1or2 items only.

I have been using the sisterlocks salon shampoo and reconstructer which is really really good. I also hate shopping so good for you. I intend to be out of the country next year so that I can avoid it completely. Merry christmas to you and hope to keep reading your blog.

Doesn't take ages to set it up Ofo, just a few minutes.

I did the big shop online last week but still headed down to the market looking for the chicken, turkey etc this week. After getting stuck in a car park (formerly known as a dual carriageway) for 6 hours on Monday (can't believe so little snow caused so much trouble!) I finally made it to the market yesterday -

I also saw chickens the size of baby turkeys (and the one the actual size of a turkey) - I was too scared to buy it... what could they possibly have fed the chicken to make it that size eh? LOL

Hehehe- you guys are cracking me up! Yes I braved sainsburys today. It wasn't as bad as tescos. Hubby came to protect me from trolleys LOL!!
OK Njoi and bajan lily, I shall sign up in the new year and will stop living in the 19th century.
I cannot imagine how those chickens grew like that. I'm telling you I'm laying hands on and praying on it before I cook it. (I already got it and I'm not going back to get another.)If I hadn't been so rattled in Tesco I wouldn't have got it..... but wasn't thinking quite straight! Makes you wanna go vegetarian.
Kitty thanx for the feedback on SLS reconstructor. Where are you headed? I intend to go to Ghana in feb.

Bajan, 6 hrs on a dual carriageway? Man if I was on a flight I would have arrived in west africa in that time! What's up with this '1st world'country? If it snows everything stops, if it's heavy rain everything stops, I mean the entire A41 was closed b'cos of ice. Everyone was forced to divert through narrow winding back country rds(still icy) with tailback several miles long. Fortunately I could turn back .
