Today we went 'therapy' shopping for a change and I dusted off my wallet, shook the moths out, and we set off to the Shopping Malls. We drove off to a site about an hour away and enjoyed what was arguably the nicest part of the day --- driving through the Cheshire countryside in brilliant sunshine. It was great!
After doing a little retail therapy at the first shop, followed by a delicious lunch, we decided to go to another store which I remembered was in a nearby shopping centre. That decision was my undoing! As we got lost in the third direction looking for it, we started to see familiar signs and remembered that we did the same the last time we went there! Oh for the days when the memory worked on full steam!!!
Anyway, notwithstanding the last part of the story, we drove on to find a branch of the store in a neighbouring town, and lo! --- success at last. We managed to buy all that we had set out to and then, cold and weary, we set off for home.
But all in all, what a good day out it's been. We had a good run in the car; enjoyed the wonderful spring weather, especially the sunshine; and to top it all we spent quality time together. Now what could be better than that? As a bonus, we also brought some goodies home. I think it was certainly a successful day!
