Photo Friday

Welcome to photo Friday a blog hosted by mamageek
I have taken part now for about 4 weeks and have had so much fun.
Well here are my photo's for this week.


I decided to base this weeks on a day of grocery shopping with mom so here goes.

Me and mom often go to Morrison's
here is the entrance to Morrison's. it was once a army base years ago and housed the Royal Irish Dragoon guards in 1856 and has been converted to a shopping center.
and here is the main shopping center, kinda looks like a castle.

inside it is quite big as you can see this is just the isle beyond the checkouts.


they cook bread fresh every day in these old style ovens.

Market street is the part of the store where you can buy fresh meats like ham or beef or chicken, and you can also buy cheese from this section.
And this is the waiting system, you take a ticket and wait till your number is up.

Mom gets trolley duty while I am the go getter, she will say to me "Wayne grab me that tin from that shelf".

Here is me waiting for mom to catch up, she can take quite a while when she is doing her shopping.
Here are some of the fruits of our labour.

Well I hope you all enjoyed shopping with me and mom .
and I hope you all enjoyed my photo Friday.

That looks like a fun place to shop. Did the people find you odd for taking pictures?

Lana said...

GREAT POST! thanks for taking us shopping with you

Michelle said...

Great PSF Wayne! I didn't realize that you were in the UK until this post!! I love that you still go shopping with your mom. :)

Chris said...

Wow -- we have no grocery stores over here with that kind of history!
Thanks for sharing.

Sharon said...

Looks like a fun place to shop! It makes me wanna visit!

Cathy said...

What an awesome market! I could probably spend hours there! Thanks for sharing...

Susie said...

That was a great shopping trip. I love the old building-looks really cool! Believe it or not, but comparing grocery stores is highly entertaining for me-does that make me a total geek? or just a little one?

Great PSF!

Indrani said...

That was a great virtual shopping trip. I enjoyed these shots. :)

Jennifer said...

Nicole said...

I'm a little odd, I like grocery shopping and that looks like a place that I could spend hours (and a lot of money) in!

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

that was a very sweet post about shopping with your momma!

Jaime said...

This has got to be the most incredible looking market I have ever seen! How fun!

Natalie said...

Thanks for sharing & commenting on my post. Looks like a FUN place to shop. I'm jealous!

Krystyn said...

You might have to tell me where that store is. My FIL and family are from England, and that store looks family...like between Claygate and Staines?

And, I loathe the "trolley's" in England. Why do all four wheels have to turn?

Straight to Your Hart said...

What a great place to shop. I would love to have that kind of experience..don't think I would leave!:)

The taking the number thing has me getting anxious...rocking back and forth...reminds me of waiting at the DMV, having a 120 number and only on 30 with only 2 workers and 20 others just watching! Sorry, will stop the anxiety:):) giggling

Maggie May said...

I enjoyed that shopping trip and I didn't feel as worn out as I usually do!
At first I thought we were going round a castle when I saw that turret!

Thanks for showing me round!

Wifey Dessert said...

i love that store!! the castle look is so cool!!

Elaine A. said...

Yeah, our grocery stores look NOTHING like that around here. How cool!

Moannie said...

Wow! That is a huge Morrison's. We have a dinky one that we use when we don't want to take to the highway for Tesco's. Looks like you could spend a day in there.

j2burk said...

pretty fun! thanks for the shopping trip :)

lisaschaos said...

I would love to go shopping there! That's one awesome building! Loved your post!

Kellan said...

What a beautiful and interesting grocery store. I wouldn't mind shopping there. I hate to shop in our grocery stores - they are too big and too crowded and not near as pretty.

Have a great weekend - Kellan

Amanda said...

Its such an everyday thing but its so interesting to see how other people shop. Thanks for sharing.

Stephanie said...

Fun! What an awesome looking grocery store, my kids would love it!

mannequin said...

Wow. I thought it was a penitentiary at first. That building is gorgeous (I imagine it was quite the something!).
It looks like great fun to shop there and I can see why a mom would need some help. That was fun! I'll go shopping anytime, anywhere.

An extra special thank you Wayne for always coming to visit my pitiful Photo Fridays! That's very kind of you:)

Terri said...

What a lovely shopping center! Unlike most of the boring ones here in the States! I enjoyed shopping with you and your mom!

Jill (Sneaky Momma) said...

Way too cool! I would look forward to shopping a lot more if I could do it like that. :)

tommie said...

What a fun place to shop!

Thanks so much for visiting my PSF,,,,happy weekend!

Alex the Girl said...

I think I'd go shopping on almost a daily basis. How can it be called shopping in such a beautiful place?

Kimber said...

I love the building. How interesting that they made it into a grocery store. I would love shopping there. Have a great weekend Wayne!!

Elle said...

Oh I love this shopping spot, It looks so interesting. I really like it when new stores are inside old buildings. Cute Post

Joy said...

I really liked this peek into Morrison's. And what a stellar son you are!

Mama Zen said...

Wow, that really does look like a castle!

Michelle said...

That's gotta be the coolest grocery store ever. You'd never find something like that in the States.

Kelli said...

Now that has to be the coolest grocery store I've ever seen. Cool PSF!

Lisa said...

I know I am late to the comment party, lol, but that is one awesome looking store!!! I would LOVE to see one like that in real life. At first I thought it was gonna be "spooky" then the inside pics quickly proved otherwise.

Morgan said...

Ok, so this will probably sound a little lame but I thought that that was SO COOL! You've mentioned going grocery shopping with your mom before, and I've always wondered what your grocery store looks like. Well now I know! It really does look like a castle. Thanks for sharing the pictures!
