Now and again we find that there are some benefits of being in the older age group. Such as the special offer for seniors at Donut King in Palmerston North. We had been visiting the shopping mall to collect Robin’s new glasses (spectacles) recently and commented how we really dislike these crowded and busy shopping malls. Not our favourite place to be, by any means. But then as we walked past the Food Hall, the delicious smell of cinnamon wafted by. For the price of a cup of coffee we could get two delicious freshly cooked cinnamon donuts each as well. The donuts were delicious, and even better, the coffee piping hot. And served in a real china mug – we can’t stand drinking out of those take-away cups. So we were doubly happy.
And just to show how well brought up we are, we didn’t even misbehave on the “travelators”. After all, the sign was warning us against it. Robin now has his new glasses, and fully fed and watered, we wended our happy way home. Taking care not to run or play on the travelators, of course.
