The boys are asleep

Oh the relief when the baby falls asleep. Twice the fun when you have two, eh Ryan?

A mother pushes a buggy with her two sons across Patrick Street in Cork while the two lads sleep serenely.

The car in the background is what caught my attention in the first place. Do you recognise it?

Patrick Street from Mothercare

Looking out the winder beats trying to navigate all the baby stuff in the shop!

Debenhams’ confused identity

Debenhams bought Irish department store chain, "Roches Stores", back in 2006, and rebranded their Cork store on Patrick Street shortly afterwards.

Unfortunately nobody has yet replaced the big "Roches Stores" logo at the top of the building. It’s still there, more than a year later! 🙂

Whirling around and around

A merry-go-round or whatever you call it kept the kids entertained in the Peace Park last night as Santa visited courtesy of 96FM.
Even the Lord Mayor of Cork turned up. He had no problems finding parking. I saw his car parked up on the broad new pavement outside the park. The “07 C 1” number plate is very distinctive.

Boy in his woolly hat

A small boy waits outside Brown Thomas with his dad while I presume his mother shops inside.

I had plenty of company while I waited!

The hand that holds the phone

Waiting outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street in Cork and texting. She’s waiting for someone.

Cassettes

I wonder if the teenager wearing this hoodie realised the irony of wearing a garment decorated with cassette images, a piece of technology he may not ever have used. The Wikipedia page has a lot more to say on the subject.

This was shot outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street, Cork while I wheeled Adam around in his buggy.

A girl’s bag

Two girls stop to talk on Patrick’s Street, Cork. That bag looks uncomfortable. What do women put in their bags?

Trust on the street

Have you ever thought about how you’re manipulated by the brands?

Trust Boots.
