It was somewhat ironic this morning that over breakfast I was reading a news story that retailers were planning on desperately slashing prices in a attempt to lure christmas shoppers out as they were worried it was going to be a very bad christmas as there didn't seem to be many people on the high street as it were this year.
Of course reading a story like this meant there was only going to be one inevitable conclusion when we ventured into town.
It was packed.
No wait, to say it was packed would be a significant understatement. It would be better to say it was filled to overflowing and then some. There were people everywhere and some of the queues were rather long, which was annoying even if queuing is supposed to be something which actually good at as a nation.
Still if it's bad this week it will probably be a whole lot worse next week which is why I have no plans whatsoever to go into town unless I have no choice what so ever.
that's of course assuming I survive next week at work, which assuming the way things are escalating at the moment is not sure thing :-) Still it's much better to be busy then not.
Which is a thought I will no doubt keep telling myself as the week rolls on :-)
