Photo Essay: Shopping in Harrow-on-the-Hill

Christmas is a terrifying time for me, when I have to go about buying things for the sprogs and sprogling’s mum and friends and family and and and. Its just painful, but this time I have my lovely little camera which i use to bore the heck out of people. Anyway, here are some photographs which I took of some strange and colourful stuff.

A whole bunch of socks. Some of them are downright dangerous, i mean, if I saw them early in the morning when I am still groggy from sleep, I might stab myself with my cup of coffee. Ok, you cannot have anything over large sizes having a torso like that. That’s deceptive advertising!

A pile of sweets, a pyramid of sweets. That reminds me, I have to replenish the sweets in the office, i usually have a lot of them placed on my desk. Sweeten anybody who comes around my place :)

Somebody doesnt take my job as a photographer seriously. When i was asking about giving me a good smile, this is how I get a response. Hence revenge is sweet. She is going to be put up on the internet for everybody to see. And the girl in the background wearing the pink parka gave me such a big fright. We had left Diya at her drama class and she has a parka just like that and of the same size. I nearly had a heart attack seeing that parka, thinking Diya had run away from the school or something. lol

Anybody interested in some German Mulled Wine? I love mulled wine, nothing like warm spicy mulled wine over the Christmas time…But to drink it on the street?????

Then went to purchase some filofax inserts for my luddite girl at a stationary shop and my eyes fell on a nice colourful display..

How about some wonderfully bright and colourful flowers?

Or some balloons?

Or a ride? I am too old to take this ride now :(

Or maybe a different kind of ride?

or some bratwurst? Sighs, they looked delicious

But not to all, somebody had cruelly abandoned one.

 

Unlike Kannu who was very happy in stuffing his face with the Schinkenkrakuer sausage hot dog. Yummilicious.

The key to the kingdom is yours but you need to figure out which one. And only one try allowed :)

Stubbing out a coffin nail on an ice covered garbage tin. That prim and proper expression combined with the ciggie smoking sin in the freezing cold, great combo. God, I still crave for a fag. Damn addiction even after 3 years of giving up!.

A smorgasbord of wonderful sweeties, yummy…, you just feel so hedonistic and want to just dive into the display, lol. Can anything top that? yes, it can, its FUDGE, of zillions of types.

It should be illegal to have so many types of fudge and one even in the form of a tiny cottage!, bloody hell. What can top that?

Belgian Waffles can, in a bewildering variety of toppings. Sighs. Criminal, Indecent, Disgusting and utterly irresistible.

 

You can see the expression of utter and total pleasure on little princess’s face as she is gobbling up Smarties Magic Waffle covered with chocolate sauce. Eldest Cost centre on the right is quaffing away on Marshmallow on chocolate drenched muffin.

Here’s the full mess post feeding the princess.

And somebody very pleased after sneaking in some bites from Diya’s waffle.

 

And playing hide and seek!
