I know there is at least one formerly Bath based reader. Bloke in Bilbao grew up 50 yards away from me even if it was several hundred by the road. But that’s not quite what I mean. Is there anyone actually in Bath at present?
I think, maybe, Flatcap Army might be? But anyone else?
The point here. Mother is in lockdown which at her rate of maturity is a good idea. She’s also running out of wine. At which point, a scheme to try and get her a case.
She’s 100 yards from a Majestic but they’re so busy that delivery dates are out to next century some time. They’re also not doing click and collect. The one vintner I can find (Novel, in Weston) that is offering deliveries doesn’t stock the wine she prefers. Sainsbury’s won’t let me register for delivery or click and collect because I’m not the “vulnerable” person. But the aim of getting me to try to organise a case is that – laughable though it may seem – my computer skills are greater than those of my mother. Lidl doesn’t do click and collect so it’s not even possible to send Abbey Taxis around to collect some.
Yes, obviously, this is being picky, picky.
But what is the potential solution here? The aim being to get a case of the preferred wine to mother. I’ll pay, obviously. There are stores open that stock it but the interaction between delivery options and sometime in the next 14 days seems to be lacking.
Which leads to the question up at the top. Anyone actually in Bath and bored enough to help out?
This is now solved.
The local Co Op, would we believe. They stock the particular wine. And they don’t have any online system, delivery drivers or whatever. They do however have helpful people who will trot down the road that 100 yards with some.
Adaptability see, not systems!
