When shopping for jewellery gifts it’s important to note the following steps to make your life easier.
Don’t worry about price. The piece you like will always be the most expensive.
Pictured is the premises of Hilser Bros Jewllers on the Grand Parade, Cork.
There are I think 3 adult stores in Cork. Two are down by Parnell Place, or at least they were, and the other is pictured above!
One of the adult stores in Cork is down a small, narrow little road called Grafton Street. The alley is so small that it doesn’t even appear on Google Maps. It does show on Yahoo Maps but you’d be forgiven if you never noticed it before.
This was shot from the Grand Parade multi-storey car park which backs onto the road. I was really happy to get the flashing neon sign while it was illuminated!
The Sony repair centre is just across the alley from the store, the only reason I’ve ever gone down there, when I tried to get my Sony 717 repaired.
No, before you ask, I’ve never darkened the doorway of any of those shops!
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?

Looking out the winder beats trying to navigate all the baby stuff in the shop!
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! 🙂
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.
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!
Waiting outside Brown Thomas on Patrick Street in Cork and texting. She’s waiting for someone.
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.
