A walk down Camden Road

I have just returned from a walk with a little boy who is five later on this week.We walked through the park collecting leaves and then walked down Camden Road.

The first shop we went in was full of furniture and very old things from the war that had to be examined at length by tiny fingers.We wanted to buy a little red car and a walking stick with a silver duck’s head like the one that belonged to Poirot, but we could not find anyone to serve us. Luckily the little boy who is five this week noticed the sign that said “please ring the bell” and after he shook the large bell,suddenly an old man appeared and said ” I have owned this shop for fifty years”.

 The next shop was owned by a  young man and was full of superheroes and transformers. The birthday boy chose four different ones and they were wrapped up in a trice  and the man who owned the shop gave us a 20% discount just because it was our boy’s birthday week.

The next shop was Crabtree and Evelyn and had a great sale on and so the little boy’s Granny bought far two much soap and stuff and the carrier bags were very heavy.

There was just time for a milk shake and a coffee in the gluten free cafe and then we had to climb the hill back home again.Granny was hoping for a sit down on a comfy chair but spent the next hour sitting on the floor working out how the transformers worked.

Ah well,time to put the chicken in the oven for supper….
