I went to Harrod’s yesterday with VC.
After spending a curiously long time man-handling shoes, furs and evening gowns we moved into the jewellery department. There we oggled De Beer’s diamonds and extravagant pieces of coloured jewels. We then moved on and spent the best part of the entire Harrod’s experience in the Christmas section, gleefully shaking snow globes and pointing out all the strange and wonderful objects.
