Half term at Tescos

Foolishly I went to Tescos this afternoon (Shock Horror!!).

Lots of families had evidently decided that since it was the last day of half term, and quite a nice day, one should have an outing with the children. Tescos on the Newmarket Road was a popular destination.

The crowds were unbelievable. The children were dawdling round the aisles and peering into freezer boxes. Most of the adult world seems also to have decided to take their lunch break there.

I was not quite sure what the attraction was. I suppose it is maybe a bit like the zoo?
