The streets are wildly crowded, stands selling all sorts of toys and last minute presents. I really don't know how can they (the dubliners) manage all the shopping bags plus the baby trolley plus the other 2 kids hanging on the mum's coat. Wow! Just of describing it I need to catch my breath.
Honestly, what would cost me a couple of hours turned into 4 to 5 hours dodging people and absurd queues. I almost had an anxiety attack if it weren’t for the brilliant idea to plug my headphones and put some music on. I stopped at Starbucks for café moca and relax for a few minutes, but it turns out that while I was on my zen moment of the day the rain was waiting for me (wow, what a surprise! sigh). As soon as I set foot outside the door baaaam! Grab yer bags and run back home… Damn.
Fortunately I got home and prepared everything for the next day, which is going to be a very busy one including Xmas breakfast, Xmas lunch at the company and Xmas team party at the pub right after work. Ah! What a grand day it’ll be.
