Shopping Haul

The Trafford Centre, Manchester: setting of today’s temptation.

Our debit card, who art in thy wallet
Generous by thy limit.
Thy kingdom come,
The mall will be done
In Zara as much as Hamley’s.
Give us this day our shopping fix
And forgive us our overspending
As we forgive those who overspend with us.
And deliver us not into Primark.
For the mall is our kingdom.
Bargains be our glory.
Forever and ever
Amex.

  1. Can’t stop giggling! “Thy kingdom come!!” You are my hero blogger. “Even though I walk through the valley of endless kiosks, I will fear no evil. Thy (curtain) rod and thy (merchant) staff shall comfort me….

    1. You really don’t want to be kissing my feet though. My toe is still painful and I’m treating them abysmally for letting me (fall) down so much. But I do appreciate your following, especially with such kind comments. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. GSM….you are getting me through this relocation with your wry posts on here. I love them all. But yes….I will forego the actual kissing of your tootsies……all the same to you…but will take my virtual hat off to you and your clever wit! (Hope feet are healing/heeling —sorry, excuse very bad pun there……very tired from unloading boxes….)

  2. Ha- very funny! I hate to shop, but my weakness is going out to eat ๐Ÿ™‚ I try to justify it because food is so expensive anyway, but it definitely takes a big chunk out of the budget. And then I freak out and go on a spending freeze.

    1. I can gorge (if you’ll ‘scuse the pun) just as much on eating out too. Lunch with friends? Yep. Dinner with friends? Double yep, because then I won’t have the kids with me. Cafรฉ stop with the kids? You bet!
      …And then I realise how much it all costs and resign myself to beans on toast for the rest of the month. Hey ho.
