I have had such a good day today.
After dropping S at school I took the bus into town and spent half an hour mooching in Primark, coming out with 2 bags full of purchases and the first ticks made on my shopping list against items I had wanted to buy.
From there I walked up to the City's art gallery to meet a friend as we had arranged to go and see Boo Ritson exhibiton. Neither of us knew anything about her work so it was all new to us. Certainly gave us something to talk about.
To catch up with each other's news we decided on a sit down in Starbucks where I had the tastiest caramel macchiato, such a treat!
I had browsed the catalogue about a month ago and had written down the things I wanted to buy, but did the list make sense to me today? Never fear a very helpful young man spotted me looking a bit confused and came to my assistance. I had only to read out 'wacky whirler' and 'bean boozled' and off he went gathering up my purchases for me.
My friend and I then parted company as we needed to shop in different parts of town. Not only did I buy the things I had hoped to, I also managed to buy T and S's Christmas present from G's brother which was an unexpected bonus. I arrived home with half an hour to spare before I needed to collect S. My arms and feet ached but I was so happy to have packed so much into one day and for it all to have been so enjoyable.
