A little retail therapy

Today Miss M and I did something we haven't done for ages. Caught a train into the city to go shopping in the Queen Street Mall.

It all started with a pair of shoes (boots to be exact). I found some at work but they did not have my size so one of the staff rang the city store to find the right ones and had them put on hold for me till today.  Last night, after a nine hour day at work, I mentioned it to Miss M and said I would probably call them in the morning to cancel the hold.  She said she needed to go in and would go with me.....Agreed....It's a date!!

I obviously haven't been into the mall for a very long time as I have never seen this new building facade before with 3D butterflies.  Can you make it out?

We did a leisurely stroll up the Mall towards the river going into this shop and that shop, Miss M looking for a new jacket and maybe a skirt, a birthday present for a friend and I was just window shopping.

As we got to the top end of the Mall, I suggested lunch at my favourite coffee place, "Coffee Club" only to find it had moved (who knows where) so I remembered "Cafe 21" at the Treasury Casino, just across the road.  We went in to find they had changed and it was now a fancy noodle bar....mmmmm.....not a worry, there was a similar cafe downstairs called "The Kitchen" where we had a lovely lunch.....

and coffees.  I just loved the ambience of the old building and the food/coffee was very good too.

Then it was off to explore some more and finally ending up at "no other store like" (yes, that is the old phrase, but I like it)
to get my boots which were a terrific bargain by the way.  They were originally $139 but with sale price and my staff discount, I got them for $31.......how's that for a saving!

Most of all, I had a fab day out with my favourite girl, Miss M.
