Cathedral of Consumerism

Bank Holiday weekend trip to The Trafford Park Centre (Deep Joy). This principally to allow Pie Daughter No1 to spend birthday money burning a hole in her pocket.

Highlight of the trip though, quite apart the "People Watching" and purchasers, was the visit to the Selfridges food Court! Several individual pies were available for purchase the most interesting of which was the Lamb & Mint. The Selfridges own Gloucestershire Pork Pie look worthy of attention but seemed a tad expensive.

Also noted was the Sushi bar which was very very busy. The idea of sitting watching food go past on a conveyor belt is quite appealing, tempting and demoralising all at at the same time. Eventually food purchases were made in the scrum that is known as the Great Food Hall and not a pie was seen.

The Pieman left the temple of materialism wondering why it is so popular when so many people there look so thoroughly miserable!!! Or was it me just focussing of the fellow pie eaters waiting outside of the umpteenth clothes shopping for ..............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
