I was very lucky this bank holiday to get the chance to be a #MorrisonsMum and get to do some shopping and tell you all about it. So my husband and I set off on a wet May 2nd to see what bargains and goodies we could buy.
The first thing that impressed me was how clean the store was. Everywhere was tidy and smart, and that included the staff. These ladies were the first staff member's I came across and their happy smiling faces were great on a wet day.
I love to have lots of fresh vegetables as I am on diet . I loved the way the fruit and vegetable's were displayed, under jets of steam to keep them fresh.
I was also impressed with the meat , and the fresh fish. It all looked really good quality and fresh. The staff were very helpful and it was nice to have staff to get advice from.
So as it was a bank holiday he came up with some yummy things to eat.

It was really lovely and made even better by the lovely Morrisons food. I am converted to them as a store and I think I will be shopping there in the future.I do think they have cut the prices, but not cutting cornors. You can check our prices at www.Morrisons.com/pricecuts. So a big thank you to Morrisons and BritMums.
Please note I was given gift vouchers to spend at Morrisons for the purpose of this review.
