I should have known better. I never take the kids to Oxford Street or anywhere really in the West End of London not unless I can park close by and it does not involve using the buggy. Today of all days I decided to pop into Hamley’s and I figured if I got there around opening time I would be a step ahead and beat the crowds.
Oh boy how wrong was I. I ran into a huge crowd of people trying to get their hands on an exclusive new release from the Levis store. It was as bad as I could have imagined police trying to conduct crowd control, the road partially closed off and not much room to manoeuvre a buggy. Note to self stick to online shopping or indoor shopping centres when with the kids (as I close my eyes and slap my forehead).
