We went Christmas shopping today. From dawn till dusk. Breakfast at Tesco (as opposed to Tiffany’s) then into Nottingham City Centre until 4:00pm, then Toys-R-Us and then back to Tesco (everything that has a beginning has an end) to get some food for today and tomorrow.
We got everything we planned to get, some stuff we didn’t plan to get and some very sore feet.
Woolworth’s was super-mad with a huge sale on and people queueing out of the door, I bet it’s their biggest trading day this year, but it’s too little too late no doubt to save people’s jobs 🙁
We couldn’t believe how empty Tesco was first thing and then the Broadmarsh carpark was pretty light as well, the walk up to Victoria Centre was empty as well (at about 10:00am) but by the time we were leaving Victoria Centre (1:00pm) it was knee-deep in people and town was fully packed. The Christmas market is on again in Market Square and the smells were amazing.
By the time we got back to Tesco second time around there were 3 trollies left in the trolly bay inside and about a million people buying stuff.
Glad we got it done, glad it’s out of the way. For everything else, there’s Amazon.co.uk …
