Regular customers are greeted at the deli counter in Sainsbury's by a Spanish woman who, as she serves you, with her genuine warmth, makes it seem more like a corner store. "Have a lovely Sunday," she invariably says. And to another regular customer who has apparently not been well. "You are much better?" ...."Good. I will pray for you."
