My feet are killing me...

...after a wonderful girls day out.

Last year I couldn't go because the date clashed with something else but there was no way I was gonna miss out this year...a visit to Harrods.

I haven't been to Harrods since I was knee-high to a grass-hopper so all I had in mind was the images that I had seen over the years on the TV. It wasn't as packed as I thought it might be so myself and 3 friends from work were able to have a lovely wander round without losing each other LOL

None of us had a huge amount to spend but I was determined that I was gonna come home with a Christmas decoration from Harrods.
There was so much to see and the staff were wonderfully helpful. We just had a lovely day wandering around the store.
I loved the Christmas World section where all the decs were but was disappointed that they didn't have anything suitable for my colour scheme...never the Vintage section they had some decs with images from past years and I managed to get one for the year of my birth - result!!!
The food halls are amazing and it would have been so easy to splurge a load of money without even batting an eyelid.
Would you believe that this 'Palace' birthday cake was £4,000.

I really must make the effort to go into Town more often. I have always loved the way the large London stores prepare for Christmas.

I have had a wonderful day despite being shocked by some of the prices - £7.50 for a tiny cup of coffee and a coissant - now I'm about to put my feet up and just have a lazy evening........................

Oh I am so jealous Toni, my Mum and I used to take a trip up to Harrods once a year and I loved it... always bought some birthday cards so I could have something with a Harrods bag!! LOL So glad you had a lovely day out - London shops always 'do' Christmas right!

Wow! Was Christmas invented by the year you were born!! Tee Hee! Sounds like a fab day out. Last time I went to to Harrods I tried to persuade DH to buy Digey a Harrods collar but he wasn't cooperative! Poor neglected dog!

Sounds like you had a great day out with the girls.
I remember being taken there when I was 13 by my parents and I was amazed! I really wanted a souvenir, so we went to the food hall and purchased a little chocolate mouse just to get the little 'Harrods' bag to take home! The little chocolate mouse wasn't that nice really!!!! But the bag was!
