I tell you what, Christmas is coming!

You know that St Andrews Day was the 30th of November.. and do you know what the national animal of Scotland is?

Here is a wee clue ...

Yep the national animal of Scotland is a ... UNICORN πŸ¦„

So buckle up, as we go shopping for some Unicorn food!

image.png

First stop was our local Aldi which is just up the road from the last church that I visited in A tale of three churches for St Andrew's Day 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 in Scotland

We grabbed out trolley,andrushed into the store,to be confronted by some crackers!

image.png

Who doesn't love to pull a cracker over the festive period, if you can't then there is always your parntner, hehe joking aside, crackers are fun and the wee paper hat is a must to wear at the table whilst scarfing down the turkey! Priced at a fiver for six crackers that is really good value!

image.png

And yes, some of them are games, I mean look at this one, it is the game of Cluedo!
FunFact In America it is called Clue ... no idea why, as it was invented in the UK by Mr Pratt in 1943, so why it is called Clue?
Don't ask me, I have no fluffing clue!

image.png

Okay okay enough of the fun and games, we are supposed to buying food for the unicorns!

image.png

Well, would you look at that, I saw my absolute favourite 🍫, although I tend to prefer dark chocolate, Galaxy is out of this world and is my favourite as Super Eli @coquicoin knows ... Now I hope you are resting up and taking it easy, I am watching you so get well soon😜

Talking about wonderful Hivians with beautiful souls, walked down the aisle and was met by...

image.png

So @dreemsteem with the double e just look at that ... you never told us that you had launched your own sweet candy line here in the UK!
Me thinks you will have to come and do a promotional tour!

Now a promotional tour sounds like a book tour!

image.png

So there you go @beeber another one for the advent calendar competition and yes there really are 24 yes 24 windows, well in this case 24 books!

image.png

Now while we are talking about promotions and @beeber ...

image.png

If you read Ecency News for the 1st week of December
then you will have seen that @melinda010100 broke the breaking news that this coming Tuesday 6th December at 8pm UTC time will see the premiere of a fun filled weekly show hosted by yours truly in the ecency discord channel ....
I would love to see as many of you as possible tuning in and participating, who knows Matilda may make an appearance!
It does not matter what country you are in @dreemsteem you can still tune in.

Set your alarms and if you comment below who is the natural enemy of the Unicorn and we see you in the show then perhaps there will be a wee Unicorn poo visit to your wallet...

image.png

Right let's get back pushing that trolley!

Where to next...

image.png

Quick stop by the yarn, no bargains today though ..,

image.png

Oh look, not unicorn food but an advent calendar for your pet pooch!

Woof Woof gimme da chocolate!

image.png

Birds, we are getting closer, some of you may remember my summer posts about coconut bras!

Yes of course I bought some! Feels great to buy animal and bird food with our Hive rewards!

image.png

Poor Cinderfella has to stock up with his cleaning supplies every so often!

If you read @hiq.magazine then you will know I am the proofreader of the German to English translation and have you read the issue that came out yesterday and which I wrote two articles for?
If not then read it here πŸ‘‰[ENG] HiQ β„–25 | Smart, Stylish & Sexy |

I digress well we have an expression, so this one is for you @kvinna and @smooms who introduced me to the wonderful world of Germanic idioms!

image.png
this that pineapple 🍍 dies das ananas

Still no unicorn food... but its 9.28pm here which means it is ...

image.png

After Eight, woohoo now we are talking, into the trolley these badboys went!

image.png

Shortbread, you can't pass the Christmas holidays in Scotland with eating shortbread, sorry wee robin, but you are coming home with me!

image.png

SALTED CARAMEL πŸ‘ or πŸ‘Ž

For me, it is πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘, how about you, and do you say caramel like it is spelt or carmel like so many americans?

That Sponge pudding, I tell you what I have had it before and it is bloody delicious and will be dessert at Christmas lunch!

image.png

Perry The Pug and his wee jumper was cute!

We did buy loads of stuff, but did not find any unicorn food:(

This was the closest we got to finding any!!!

You have Aldi in Scotland? I did not think that. Lidl maybe, but Aldi....πŸ˜‰

Wow, you've shown some delicious things I've never seen or tasted before. I'd love to try sponge pudding cake, maybe there's a recipe and I'll bake it myself. However, i can't imagine caramel with salt. We say "Karamell" by the way. πŸ˜‰ Carmel looks like camelπŸ˜‚

The pineapple is great, I would have bought it immediately.

Wasn't the enemy of the last unicorn the red bull (not the energy-drink😁)?

Many greetings.

Yeah they came about the same time. I remember years ago when they first arrived they were simply awful, now totally different and they are good value and stock good food!

Hehe you say Karamell actually that is how we say it with a hard C and double ll so maybe because we roll the r it is Karramell!
Hehe natural enemy of πŸ¦„ was the national animal of England 🦁

hard to say, meanwhile they are both versatile and also have special things each. so i go to one or the other depending on what i want. Sometimes there's also great non-food, like a wooden pineapple as a chopping board.🍍 What a funny gif!😁 !LOL

Yarns! I thought you will going to buy and maybe start knitting? Hehe.
Crackers? We used to lit during new year when I was still a kid way back home.
Yet, due to series of incidents, the government banned it..not literally banned but implemented some restrictions.

Hey, passed those dark chocolates here.

Tired shopping? Wanna have some !PIZZA HP? Haha

Hi @tengolotodo
Great shopping trip, but it's a shame you didn't post a stew recipe. If you want to, you still have time until Sunday the
4.012. until midnight.
There are great prizes again and your chance is great this time because not so many have taken part yet.
So I'm looking forward to your contribution, how about the Scottish national dish?
So see you then under :

Hi, Ed! @tengolotodo I am so sorry I am running the late shift again! This was simply delightful and wish I had done it first! It put a huge smile on my face the whole way through!

LIONS!!! That is the natural enemy! Everyone with a unicorn knows that!

I love the poppers and we have had those my entire life. They are definitely a given on Christmas morning! Those little prizes are always coveted and who doesn't love a crown? I do love Aldis and I have one that is pretty close to me, along with its sidekick, Lidl. We call them the twins. :) Everything you need, for a nice price! The After Eight mints are expensive here now. They weren't and then last year! Boom! Almost $10.00 a box in some places. I need to check my Aldi's.

Such treats to feast my eyes on! Advent included!! Thank you so much for making #MarketFriday so fun!!!

I enjoy learning about the world and how it is to live in your corner of it, and if there are solutions to making it better in any way. I find it interesting to compare, not by the world's standards, but, by how we find the quality of our life with different indicators than the world does. It is not always about the wealth in money, sometimes money means very little when there is no value behind it. You cannot buy health although you can take care of what you have. Being educated isn't always about schooling, but acquiring knowledge and using it for the better good and happiness of the society you are living in. It is with great pleasure that I read through this and all of the posts, with these thoughts in mind.

Don't miss the small things in your life, they usually make no noise but can be indicators of bigger things. I enjoy learning more about you and hope you feel the same, that is why I find it important to take the time to read a couple of #MarketFriday posts and leave a genuine comment. It is important for a community to do this, learning about others, and getting to know each other. The fun is in getting to know people and making a positive contribution to community life. All this fun and money too. What is not to love? That is one of the reasons I joined Hive. How about you? :) I leave you with the guidelines. I hope you are having an amazing week!


Fridays are all about the #MarketFriday Challenge! Looking to take part in it? Here is how:


Rules of the Road to Join #MarketFriday!


  1. Go to the market, or anywhere that you pay money for a service. It can be a movie, an auction, or even a museum. Wherever money is exchanged for a service or product.
    Take pictures! Be creative!
  2. Tell us a little bit about the market or the event. What brought you there? What did you buy? How much did it cost? Was it expensive? Did it go up or down? A scroll of pictures with few words doesn't usually work.
  3. Post the pictures. Of course, you should tell a little bit about the ones you post, it is too difficult to guess about some.
  4. Use the MarketFriday Community Platform to post (#hive-196308) This is not required but appreciated.
    PLEASE Drop the link into the MarketFriday comment section so I can find it!!
  5. Following me and reblogging the post would be appreciated, but not a rule, more vision for more views on the #MarketFriday posts!
    7. You must put #MarketFriday by @dswigle somewhere on your post.

As always, please remember! #MarketFriday loves you!
