I'm sure I would too, but the local butcher and greengrocer charge more, so that's out of the picture for now.

Things might change from tomorrow if the government will be kind enough to give me the blind disability payment.

So there is something good about the Gold Coast after all, eh?

Besides Mum and Nan, it's the only thing I miss that's there.

Mum and I used to go have lunch at Goldstein's every Saturday.

Ok, seriously this might be the most random coincidence ever, or the worst thing to ever happen to me while listening to U2, but ever since that opening note of ABOY my stomach's been quite unsettled.

Yeah, because of cost I usually get fruits and veges from the supermarket, but generally the mad butcher is similar in cost to the supermarket. It's just easier to do it all under the same roof so I do it all at the supermarket.

you can find some if you're in a bigger city. we have a greengrocer, as you call them, in this town (small chain), and there's some bakeries. i can't think of any butchers off the top of my head though.

The closest thing we have to a butcher's is at Pike Place Market at the fresh fish stalls. Big tourist attraction there - when someone orders something, they throw the raw fish around to each other.

Yee ha.
