Naturally the Trafford Centre is all Christmassed-up already, despite it not being anywhere near Christmas yet. They had singing bears, a carousel, a pretend ice rink, and I went to pull my face at the upside down Christmas trees in John Lewis's. I just don't get it. Why would you want an upside down Christmas tree???
We stopped off for a quick Burrito in a bowl (sic) and vey nice it was too. For once the "hot" sauce actually WAS hot. And the smoky Tabasco sauce was lovely. My only complaint is that you hardly get enough cheese on those things, and, judging by the expressions on the faces of the staff, you may get a mouthfull rather than more cheese if you dared ask for it. :)
The Christmas decorations were actually very nicely done - not overly modern or "creative", and I especially liked the silver flying reindeer.
