Shop 'til You Drop

After arriving back to Germany, we hadn't had the chance to go shopping in the winter sales. So, last Saturday, we planned to visit the Main-Taunus-Zentrum.

Main-Taunus-Zentrum is a large shopping centre located just outside Frankfurt by the motorway leading to Wiesbaden. The centre is very popular: even though there are 4500 parking places, it is very difficult to find free spot for your car.

On Saturday, we were invited to a birthday party of a two-year-old girl, so we went shopping after the party and arrived to the Main-Taunus-Zentrum at only 7pm. Fortunately, the opening hours here a bit different than in Finland, where everything closes by 6pm. on Saturdays.

After 10pm., when all the other shops were closed, we still went to the Rewe grocery store (open until midnight). That's where the first 'drop' happened: our daughter fall asleep in her pushchair. She was so tired of all the partying and shopping, that she didn't ask for her pacifier.

The next 'drop' waited until the next morning: I fell ill. For a few days now I have had fever and felt sick. But hopefully it will soon pass and I'll be able to go and check the sales here in Wiesbaden!

Get well soon! I wouldn't worry too much about the sales here in Germany- they are so minimal that it's not worth making a particularly special effort! I have never known a country NOT to put calendars in the sale once that particular year in well under way! (Can you tell I was appalled at paying full price? Ha, ha!)

Thanks Fiona!
I saw one winter jacket in P&C before Christmas, which I liked very much. Now it was 50% off, but they didn't have my size in Main-Taunus-Zentrum. I was told that there are two of the right size in P&C Wiesbaden, so I'm desperate to go there before they are sold out!

No voi hitsi - minkäs flunssan sää pyydystit koneesta?
Onko jo parempi olo :)?

No nyt on jo parempi olo. :)

Kummipoika oli flunssassa ja mahataudissa, kun olimme heillä keskiviikkona, joten sieltä varmaan pöpö peräisin. A:llakin on vähän silmätulehdusta, varmaan samaa perua sekin :(

Taidankin tietää mistä takista on kyse.... Se ruskea oli sit sun väri ihan ehdottomasti ;-) Pikaisiin paranemisiin!

Juurikin se, Katri! :D Ja nyt puoleen hintaan, joten pakkohan se on saada! Ja nimenomaan niitä ruskeita on vielä kaksi täällä Wiesbadenissa (tai oli lauantaina...).
