BossyGirl and I spent the afternoon at a local shopping centre.
I found the whole experience ugly and soul destroying.
It felt pointless and a waste of time.
But maybe that was because I had nothing I needed to buy?
Bossy didn't feel that way. She had $10 holiday money
and it had to be spent.
She came home with a new very fluffy Beanie Kid and is happy.
I did find something at the end, a bottle of Spiritual Sky Oil in
Strawberry scent and one whiff took me way back to my
14th year. And a particular trip to Paddy's Markets
when I had my bag stolen off the train. In that bag
were all my 'treasures' including my Spiritual Sky.
I still miss that bag.
In the toy shop there was a sign that read
'it's never too late to have a happy childhood'
So I bought a bottle!
And then later today I added these tiny pieces to the store.
