27.10.10 – Ok, I had never heard of H&M before I moved to Finland, let alone shop at one, but it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite stores. Inexpensive and stylish clothes, me likes. I’ve always been a Gap kind of guy because I know I can go in there, find something that looks good and be out in less the 30 minutes. I don’t like shopping. There are no Gaps in Finland so I had to go with the next best thing which is H&M. Maybe it’s more like Old Navy because everything is pretty cheap there.
Wednesday is usually a crazy day because I spend at least 2 hours shuttling Max and Emma to their art classes on the other side of town. Near the end while I was taking Max back home the temperature had dropped quite a bit because the sun was setting and I didn’t have my gloves and hat. I left Max on the tram and I went into H&M to get some more winter gear. Everything is pretty inexpensive and still pretty hip and fun looking so I picked up a couple of hats, another pair of gloves and two scarves. I’ve never owned a scarf in my life.
I paid for everything but forgot to get some wool socks. The cashier had been speaking Finnish because I didn’t say anything earlier so he assumed I spoke Finnish. When I came back with the socks I told him, “Sorry, forgot these.” He rang them up and said in broken English, “Ok…. now you are warm!”
He was right. By the time Jaana got back to her place with Emma it was past 2000 and cold outside. I broke out the new gear for the walk and tram ride home and was snug as a bug 😉
