The world and his dog was in Leeds City centre today it seemed. Me and mum had decided to meet up for a ladies day of Christmas shopping and lunch and it was really, really nice….except for everyone else in Leeds. I know it’s prime time for Christmas shoppers and I know it was a Saturday afternoon but COME ON PEOPLE. Groups of elderly peeps were everywhere, exiting the shops and stopping right outside to decide where they were heading next. Then there were the grumpy husbands who didn’t even want to be out and would rather be watching football at home who did nothing but growl and swear if somebody got in their way.
And let’s not even get started in the children wandering around without parents. I’m sorry but how do you have a child and not want to keep an eye on them in Leeds City centre? It’s a sodding big place and for a lonely child can’t be the safest.
The shops were hot and crowded and it was difficult to even move but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Being in York, I miss the mainstream high street shops that you get in every city. Don’t get me wrong, I love the little quirky shops in York but for the love of god I just want to go to Primark every once in a while!
But anyway, I’m doing more Christmas shopping tomorrow in York which I’m looking forward to and then on Monday its back to work after a glorious three day weekend. Sad times 😦
