My bank holiday as a #MorrisonsMum

This bank holiday weekend I have been very lucky to be a Morrison’s mum with thanks to Morrison’s and Britmums.  I was really excited to see how Morrison’s would measure up compared to our normal shopping at Asda as I had not shopped in Morrison’s for a good four years.
