New Year's Eve Shoppers

By Jove, it wasn't half busy in Belfast city centre this afternoon. We drove in after lunch and parked in Donegall Place. I had bought the Dowager two coats, as Christmas gifts, several weeks ago at Marks and Spencer's Sprucefield store; and, since they are both too neat a fit, I intended to exchange them for the next size up. I enlisted the help of a pretty shop assistant. However, as she explained, it transpired that the Belfast store doesn't stock the whole range; so I'll need to make a return trip to Lisburn again.

No matter. It shall be another excuse for us to have lunch at the lovely Plough Inn in Hillsborough.
