Bank Holiday Shopping: Picnics, Parcels, Pack Ups and Posies

I think Bank holidays are time to kick back and relax and reconnect with family and friends.

I had a poorly friend who needed some TLC, a friend I needed to thank, cub camp to pack my son up for, a picnic for two little girls to make and a herb garden to plant. A busy but lovely bank holiday

I was given £80 worth of vouchers to spend at Morrisons on my bank holiday shop from BritMums to see what I thought of what Morrisions had to offer.I don’t usually shop at Morrisons as I do an online shop and they have only just started home delivering near me.

The first thing I saw when I stepped inside was the flowers.  Glorious colours of fresh healthy flowers. Flowers are my favourite thing and it was so  to see such  unsupermarkety (I know there is no such word) flowers right at the start of my trip. It filled me with good vibes.

Next we moved to the  vegges. Oh Morrisons do have lovely fruit and veg and the water sprinkly system on their veg to keep it fresh is wonderful (and enchanted my kids.)

We had our eyes on the array of gorgeous herbs as one of our weekend projects was to plant a herb garden. They were super healthy, well displayed and well priced (much cheaper than the garden centre.)

 We also headed swiftly to the cakes and found lots of lovely pies and fresh cream concoctions all baked instore just begging to be bought.

The choice of bread was fabulous too!

There were great value everyday products to be found on every shelf.

Morrisons pride themselves on their new low prices….

We’ve cut the prices on over a thousand of your favourite products. Not temporary reductions or supermarket smoke and mirrors, these are new every day low prices on the things you buy every week. So you’ll notice the difference with every shop.

And although we’re cutting prices, we’re not cutting corners. You can check our pricing at

Look out for the yellow markers when you shop in store and online at If it says I’m cheaper you know it’s staying cheaper.

We saw yellow stickers everywhere and the prices on everyday products certainly came in cheaper than our usual shop! We spent our £80 and had an awful lot to show for it. But it was the freshness, the range and the quality that impressed me just as much as the low prices. I felt as If I had been to a deli, a bakers, a garden centre and a florists within one shopping experience.

I cannot blog you a recipe as I did no cooking over bank holiday (relaxing times mean easy meals in our house!) but here’s what I did with the Morrisons shop. I spread a little bank holiday love….

I made a picnic for two lovely girls.

My conclusion is that Morrisons is a good value and quality  place to shop and we had a rather lovely bank holiday because of our rather lovely shop..
