Shopping day

Went shopping today, for the last available Saturday that I have, probably until exam period, and guess what I've got that made me kind of excited!!
It's not those Republic clothes that I've got.. But..
a 50p coin!!!

You might ask what's so special about it..
it's the 2008 version, one of the Royal Shield coin set that I've been trying to collect
and with it, now I've got the whole shield..!!!

From left to right, top to bottom,
there are pound coin, 10p, 2p, 1p, 5p, 20p, 50p..
Can you see the Royal Shield? (note: picture is from web as I'm lazy to take it myself)
You'd have to make some virtual point in your mind..
exclude the pound coin (I havent got this one =/), the rest form a shield shape..
nice right?
Unfortunately the time when I manage to do this it's already 2009! :( :(
Should have done more shopping.. hahaha..

I like saturday's high street
there are lots performers and sometimes you get to see some traditional suits or hear some nice little live concerts..
very lively, unlike the nights here...
It was also crowded today, but what made me feel different,
was when I saw there are quite a few shops closing down (the Work, Card warehouse etc) and some had already closed down (Woolworth)... :( :(
Experts predicted there are going to be at least 600,000 job cuts here in the UK during the year 2009
*sigh* Can you imagine that?
