But I had to go to The Hague today, despite the bed weather, for an important errand. It took me an hour and a half of travel, but the errand itself in The Hague, I completed in less than ten minutes. I figured, I´ll do a bit of window shopping to pass the time before traveling back to Rotterdam so I walked around, checked out stuff at Zara ( OMG! So expensive! I need to make another trip to Madrid to have my fill of my favourite Spanish brands! ). I also went inside Primark and H&M but came out empty handed.
But what really made me happy today was discovering the big, badass Marks & Spencer store in Den Haag with a big food hall. Ah, it was a slice of British food heaven!

Surprisingly, the prices of the goodies at M&S Netherlands are reasonable. Sometimes, even cheaper than the prices of comparable items at the grocery shops. I just wanted to buy a pack of the M&S lemon and white chocolate muffins that a friend brought last week on our road trip to Germany, but all the goodies on display looked scrumptious so I was panicking because, being a grocery hoarder, I wanted to buy soooo many things! Sadly, though the spirit was willing and my wallet is poor haha! So I talked myself a 20€ budget for today´s M&S food spree.
Here´s what I got for less than 20€ from M&S:
2 bagfuls of goodies for less than 20€
And lastly, my most impractical ¨not really cheap but I had to try it¨ buy:
I´ll pick up again. Unless of course it´s on sale!
So now I´m thinking, hmmm, perhaps I should schedule a once a month trip to Den Haag. Perhaps meet with friends who are based there, have a breather from good old Rotterdam, and have my fill of M&S goodies :-)
