Day 111 of 365: Oh No They Dih'int!
Yep, it appears as though the devil's playground (i.e. WalMart -- who also owns ASDA) has gone transatlantic!
Matt noticed the ASDAWalMartSupercentre in Great Bridge on the way back from my supply post one night and promised we would go in and take a gander. Well, take a gander we did tonight!! We stopped in on the way back from the school today and ended up picking up a few things for our tea.
Inside there were three escalators and an entire upper floor of clothes, electronics, and housewares. We saw irons for £3 and toasters for £7. The store is also open 24 hours as well, but it's a good job I don't have a car -- I know people back in the States who go to WalMart for fun (and I was sadly one of them). Matt and I made the decision that we would definitely have to come back when we had money free to spend on such household luxuries.
Now I sit here with an itchy throat and I'm afraid the little bits in Foundation have shared too many germs, so I'm going to attempt a good night's sleep. Back at school on Wednesday.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
