Today, Mr WF and I ventured out to Merry Hell (our local out of town shopping centre called Merry Hill by most but nicknamed Merry Hell by Mr WF who hates shopping). It was (unusually) a quick and relatively painless experience where we managed to get everything we needed without too much hassle.
We did manage to entirely avoid the Katie Price (aka Jordan) book signing in Waterstones. There were hoards of teenage girls queueing round the block to meet her. We stayed well well away and escaped from Merry Hell with our sanity intact (but only just in the case of Mr WF).
