A mostly successful shopping trip

Just a very quick post and no photos yet because it's time to make dinner. With luck there will be a photo or two tomorrow -- assuming they came out ok!

Today was an excursion to the town of Llandudno on the North Wales coast, which is a 3 hour round trip. G was attending the graduation of some of his students and I went shopping.

I really don't like shopping much, so tend to save it up and then arrange to go to a Big Place[*] and get it all done in one fell swoop. I bought most of what I went for, plus a handbag I hadn't intended to buy but did need due to the zip breaking on the faithful old bag that has served me these many a year. I may also have made a step forwards in sorting out the muddle a certain big name mobile phone provider has made of one of my online account (fortunately the one belonging to the spare phone, and not my main phone). And, though I went intending only to look I actually bought the new fridge-freezer I've been procrastinating about for, oh, about 3 years. However, I didn't manage to get a new printer. The ones they had weren't suitable. I need to do some research online. Why do they have to bring out new "improved" models that have all sorts of features that you don't want and don't do what you need them to do. :(

[*]I always find it rather ironic that when I was a child we went to Llandudno for holidays. We thought it a charming little place compared to Manchester where we lived. Now it's one of the Big Places where I go to shop for things I can't buy locally and want to see in the flesh rather than just buying online.
