2nd post of the day - please scroll down to read earlier post
I SURVIVED!!!!! My hubby had a totally insane idea to head to the mall this morning so we got up and out and where there before 10:00 ............. the rest of the World must've arrived at one minute TO 10:00!!! and were driving aimlessly around looking for a parking space as we arrived! LUCKILY (for my husband) someone backed out of a space close to the entrance as we were approaching so we nabbed it. All thoughts of heading anywhere other than the M&S food hall had already left my head as I was thinking of the Christmas edition of Father Ted one year where the priests had been stuck in the lingerie department for days unable to find a way out!!! Steadfastly, we headed in to M&S and sought out a trolley - they've introduced the £1 coin system to obtain a trolley - hubby's pockets didn't yield fruit so I rummaged and found one - otherwise we'd have failed in our mission already! Now M&S do some scrummy food but this morning I think the emphasis was more on the "SCRUM" element and I quickly felt as though I had donned Harry Potter's Cloak of Invisibility as trolleys hit my rump one after another - now I know I need to lose weight but honestly, have a care peeps! Every single person in the not inconsiderable line at the check outs required the assistance of a supervisor too - makes me wonder if hubby's learned his lesson by now! Of course, it IS probably all my own fault as I had said that the newly opened stretch of road afforded an excellent view of the Concorde so this may have been the reason for our trip! - it is scheduled for removal from public site imminently and that may have been one of the last chances to see it - soooooooooo, yep - should have kept my mouth shut - still, nice view of a local landmark eh? - leaving aside the building site debris in the foreground!!!!
Hope your day is less fraught than mine - on the plus side, we did make it home before the post arrived so am unlikely to have missed any deliveries of Christmas parcels - Eureka!
