Soon be Easter

And congratulations to the vicar of Killay, in Swansea, for the first complaint about Easter merchandise of the year.

What does Fr Tim think the Co-op should put on the empty shelves where the Christmas merchandise was? Seed drills? Chitting potatoes? Snow shovels? It's hard to know. This is the way retail works. If you have a choice between putting your products on a shelf in a shop, and in a warehouse - and you have a spare shelf - you put them on the shelf.

I hope Fr Tim didn't have any carol services before Christmas Eve. That would be blatantly consumerist.


  1. I'm not in England right now, but I did once try to buy mince pies on December 28th, to be told that I was too late.

    1. But I'm sure you could have substituted Hot Cross Buns.

  2. Here in the Ex-Pats supermarket in Vilajoiosa, they have about twenty-five packets of frozen mince pies. Prolly could stick them on the Easter shelf with some bunny ears on them?

  3. Hmm - but he photographed chocolate bunnies in a red packet. Maybe they are for Valentines day?
