I am not one for browsing around a shopping mall too often. It is something that I will do with friends. But when alone I do the bare amount possible. However, on my first day of leave I had some time to kill. And there were a few things I needed to try and find. I parked in the underground section of our local shopping centre and ambled along. My first stop was to look for a tea strainer. This good old fashioned item is not that easy to find. And the one I have seen does not look like it will last a month. After that I chose a few dresses. But due to Covid restrictions I could not try them on. After paying for them I went to another clothes store to see what they had. And as their change rooms were open I tried on the dresses.

It was here that my lovely calm morning came to a halt. A customer called to say he needed goods. And so I stopped looking at stuff and headed straight to do my shopping. I was waylaid at a candle stand but dragged myself away before making up my mind. As soon as I started my shopping another customer called so now I really had to motor on. I bought the few items I needed and then went to the pharmacy. As there was no queue I collected my prescription, only to be faced with a wait to pay. By this time I had decided what to buy from the candle lady and I was trying to do that as quickly as possible. By this time the crowds had arrived and I raced through the entire Mall just to get out of there and avoid too much contact!
