Last week was the final of Britian's Got Talent and Annie Mouse came for a visit.
The plan was we would have take away and watch the final.... and that is what we did (except I discovered Annie is on a Weightwatchers diet and would only eat my home made chicken and vegetable soup with some crisp breads she bought that looked like cardboard!!)
So what should me and Teen have then? ooo I know !!
Those lovely people over at FMB had given some of us bloggers an opportunity to test out a very innovative idea of online takeaway ordering...... Brilliant we'll do that.
I had registered with the company 'Just-Eat' a few weeks before when I was sent the invite and £15 food voucher from FMB. The registering process was straight forward. A click here and a click there... Yes an easy site to navigate around...... thankfully
So what is Just Eat all about ?? The company gathers a host of takeaways together around the country ... now this is the techy bit ...they stick the names in their puta... you pop in your postcode and it shows you which resturant/ takeways are taking part with Just-Eat in your area then you choose your food... bloody marvellous.
Go on have a go .....www.just-eat.co.uk
Ok pop in your postcode and search ..... easy isn't it ???
Anyway back to BGT night. In my area there were only Indian & Italian takeaways on the list (oh and when I say Italian I mean Pizza houses).... I am not sure if other types of takeways are available in other areas ??
We decided on 'Italian' as Teen is not too keen on Indian food.
She told me which local takeaway on the list was the best (Teens know this type of thing) and placed our order
~10" Cheese & Pepperoni pizza
~10" Cheese & Mushroom pizza
~10" Cheese & Mushroom, Garlic Bread
~one portion of chips
Easy peasy again.... put in delivery address and a voucher code and there you have it 'Bob's your Auntie!!'
The takeways came on time.... wow .... one small hiccup though he forgot Teens chips.
Aww he was so apologetic and looked mortified .. he told me he would be straight back and in 5 minutes he was back with two portions of chips :-) how sweet....
I did feel guilty (just for a moment) poor Annie sitting there with soup and cardboard slices... the pizzas where hot and delicious.
I certainly will use the service again as I hate takeaway flyers cluttering up drawers and notice boards so I end up chucking them away then thinking 'mmm I fancy a takeaway now where is that menu??' It is a great idea .....
There were 2 winners last Saturday ... not only Diversity but me too :-)
