I've also noticed that every time I try to buy bus saver tickets from E&C they never have them. Has anyone ever managed to buy them there?

There's a newsagent next to the [old] entrance to the tube station - i think it's called 'Huma's shop'. I've never known it to be out of saver tickets, nor have I ever had to queue in there.

One thing I adore about Borough Market is the fact that they have inexpensive duck eggs. I can't find them anywhere else. I highly recommend the Monmouth Coffee Co. (in Borough Mkt) too.

Thanks for the info on M&S, tanya. I went into the Waterloo one the other day. I'll never cease to be amazed at the quality of their foods. Even their ready meals are delicious, and their smoked salmon is so much better than Tesco's. Queues were quite long, but very quickly moving. Marvellous store.

try the M & S steam meals: very good, healthy and affordable.

M&S steak and kidney puddings...... ready in the microwave in 5 minutes and very yummy. Just like granny used to make!

try the S&KP at the Royal Oak. Probably cheaper than M&S, almost certainly better than any ready meal, and feeds a faimly of four for a week.

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

Also forgot to mention my star buys of many kinds, i.e. olives, freshly made bread, cheap etc etc. at a Turkish supermarket called I think Seyhan 2, near Iceland in Walworth Road.

great, nice to have a Walworth Rd recommendation. Even if it's outside our little SE1 corner there are some top things in the area.

Trouble with Waitrose at Canary Wharf is that they not only charge the usual four or five quid delivery charge for internet shopping, but also another fiver I am told for congestion delivery charges, even on a Saturday delivery apparently.

Do WAITROSE (as opposed to Ocodo (sp?)) deliver to SE1 then?

I understand that Ocodo's extra fiver isn't the congestion charge, but is London related, as it takes them longer to get into town than to get to out of town.

Get yourself a car and then you can drive to Canary Wharf. You know it makes sense [may be taken as TFIC if you wish; is also definitely a practical suggestion for making shopping easier. Only a couple of hundred quid a year to run a very old Polo]
