The things you see!

This afternoon, Keith and I popped into town to do some 'man' shopping at Maplins. We managed to find a parking space and had just got out of the car when we noticed another car parking in a perfect diagonal across another parking space nearby. The woman driver got out and disappeared into a nearby shop, having omitted to buy a parking ticket, followed, a few seconds later, by her passenger, also female. What caused me to stop and stare and wonder if I had suddenly dropped into a parallel universe, though, was the fact that said passenger was clad only in dressing gown (hopefully with pyjamas underneath) and slippers. She too disappeared into the nearest shop, while Keith and I sauntered along to Maplins.
Sadly, I was so stunned I didn't manage to get my phone out quickly enough to take a photo, so I'm afraid you will just have to take my word for it.
And before you ask, no, I hadn't been at the cooking sherry!

Quite right, mresnesbitt. :)
YP, did I say it was Wrexham? There are other towns round north Wales, you know! ;)
