It's Witchy's birthday, and she decides to make some special party food - but alas, the cupboard is bare, and she can't remember the magic word to restock it. There's nothing for it but that she'll have to go to the supermarket, so off she goes with her shopping list. On arrival, she discovers she's left her glasses behind so has to peer closely at everything because she can't read any of the labels. Children will laugh as they see her putting blueberries into her trolley, thinking they are spider eggs, spaghetti for worms, chocolate chips for mouse droppings, raspberry sauce for dragon's blood and so on ...and when she gets home she finds that, although she doesn't have what she came for, she really does have the ingredients for a lovely party!
