Danger ahead! Stop, turn and walk away!

This week the theme for Terri’s Sunday Stills is Danger.

Stop, you are on dangerous ground!

As I walked into a shopping centre yesterday, my eye was drawn immediately to this inviting, but very dangerous shop.

Dangerous shop for grandparents
A dangerous shop, especially for grandparents

Why so dangerous you ask?

For new grandparents, and maybe the not so new ones as well, this type of toy shop, or a book shop or a clothes shop – are dangerous due to the amount of money one can spend in a very short amount of time!!

Just FYI – I actually resisted the urge to spend any money – danger averted – for the moment anyway 🙂

Are you in danger too?

This is just my take on danger, what would yours be? I always enjoy hearing your thoughts.

Have a great week ahead.

Debbie 🙂

  1. Ha Ha, Deb, so easy to splurge on the grandkids! I have learned, tho, that there is little they really “need”…but I am a sucker for a good children’s book. It’s the teacher in me!

  2. I just had to giggle at your perspective on danger at the toy store, Debbie! Any kind of shopping is dangerous for me, especially online as Hugh said. I do hope you bypass the danger from time to time and buy a few goodies for spoiling!

    1. Thanks Hugh! Yes that’s me, I’m often the one who sees things from completely differently to others. But it makes for a fun responses sometimes. Online shopping is very easy and quite dangerous too. By the way did you notice I’ve changed my theme based on your suggestions in a recent post on Gutenberg happy themes? It took me a while to choose and make the changes but I’m quite happy with it so far.

      1. Yes, I did. I especially like the header and your social media icons, Debbie. I could spend hours trying out new themes, but I have to stop myself. I always stick with the first one I like and then work on improving that theme. I’m pleased I motivated you to try it out and, as some have said to me, it wasn’t as dangerous or frightening as some thought it would be when changing blog themes. 😀
        Great work.

        1. Thanks Hugh, it was fun(?) and a bit exciting to work on the new theme. It’s much easier these days than it was when I first started blogging. Hopefully it will work better now with the Gutenberg editor than my previous theme was. 🙂

  3. I definitely wouldn’t have been able to get out of there without spending something! With two grandchildren here already and another one on the way, I think I spend more in children’s shops than anywhere else at the moment !
    Like Miriam, I cannot resist a Lindt chocolate shop – thank goodness we don’t have one locally, I’d be the shape of a hippo and very poor 😉

    1. It’s so easy to buy things isn’t it Deb? I love the joy these shops bring me, even if I don’t buy anything. They are bright, happy places. Thanks so much for your thoughts!


  4. Hubby and I have been running into such as this for years now (clothes, toys, computers, first car, etc.) Love spoiling the grandbabies!

  5. Oh yes, I hear you on the shops, bed linen shops – dangerous with a capitol D, as is our local plant nursery with its gorgeous and very expensive gift section. Other than that. – big dogs on the beach until I know they’re not going to tear our Mr Tilly limb for limb. I’m always very cautious until I know the dog can be trusted with a smaller pesky puppy.
