Hello my lovely bloggy friends,
I haven’t got any great insights to share, or any ranting babbles. I haven’t even got anything of Autistic interest to chat about either. So I just thought I’d share my day.
I decided to go around the shops.
The sun was shining and shopping seems so much more bearable when the sun is out…well it does for me anyway.
I’ll show you why after I explain about where I go shopping.
I live in a big city
Our town centre is a very popular shopping area. People actually travel in on coaches to spend the day in the high street shops.
Me…I ABSOLUTELY HATE our city centre.
I go into town for one reason and one reason only….. The Cathedral.
Yes, I am that boring…I am quite happy to get off the bus go to the Cathedral, then pop to Starbucks for a coffee before getting back on the bus, to go home.
I avoid the shops and the crowds at ALL cost.
I’ll show you some pictures of the area where I enjoy shopping.
I would much rather go to the local village and use their town centre. I don’t care that they haven’t got all the trendy shops and high fashion, extra expensive, latest of what.so.ever. I love the charity shops, they are so much more bearable.
Is it just me or do the people who go into charity shops seem so much more friendly?
I always find nice people to chat to in charity shops, they seem like quite a different sort all together. They don’t all seem rushed and selfish. I was chatting with a lady today about a Lilac dress we were both looking at. There was only one obviously, it was a charity shop, and we weren’t fighting over it, we were both trying to give it to each other.
Last year, I could hardly believe it, I actually witness two women fighting over an Easter egg in a large supermarket. I must say I was appalled…an Easter egg for goodness sake, they were actually physically fighting over an Easter egg.
Do they NOT realise what Easter is about? I mean seriously, is this what the world has come to?
Well…I’d better shut up about that and get on with this post,
It HAS turned into a bit of a babble hasn’t it…giggle.
Here are a few pictures of the buildings around the town where I shop, they are very historic and a lot prettier (in my opinion) than the new buidings in my city centre.
Also where I can get a coffee is a lot more relaxing than Starbucks.
There are quite a few lovely little cafes and they are very “Quaint” yes…that’s about right, “Quaint”
I just looked it up in the dictionary folks, and “Quaint” is definitely the right word.
Oh…It’s so very annoying my dyslexia.
I haven’t been able to find my reading head lately, so please forgive me for not keeping up if I usually comment on your blog. I have an accumulation of posts saved that I really want to read and can only manage the first paragraph before the swirling kicks in.
Right pictures and stop babbling Lisa, before you bore everyone to death.
Love and hugs all. xx 🙂
