At our group today the topic for discussion was Shopping! A bit unusual and some members felt a bit dubious about it however as usual it led to a lively conversation!
We discussed how you would often see women loving the shopping experience and how you would see men waiting sitting waiting patiently but clearly looking forward to going home!
One group member said he usually felt like that however when he lived in Armitage there was a huge shop that sold many items including boats, even guns and outdoor equipment so he would enjoy looking round that.
Another member said they used to own a book shop and as that did not do so well they bought their own record collection in and started selling them and it built on that and was a successful record shop for many years ! One person spoke of the hours they would spend looking through records in shops like Cockburn Street.
A couple of people said they spent hours in book shops, and spoke of memories of old book shops and also a fairly new one that is quite grand inside and has ladders,leading up to more workspace which sounded amazing!
Another person spoke of shopping for hours with a family member for meaningless items and how boring they found it!
