Following in the brave footsteps of Mrs. TBF, I've purchased a shopping cart to assist me with the 2-3 trips per week to the grocery store.
GLH had actually suggested that I purchase one on a few occasions. We've seen them at the grocery store. However, I thought they looked a bit cheap and too old lady-ish. Not to mention that their handles didn't come nearly high enough for me.
Then on Sunday we saw a young woman walking about Zürich with a rather stylish one. It had leopard skin print and everything.
So today I went on a hunt for a better quality, more stylish one as well.
I was unable to find the animal print. Or even my favorite color, purple.
But I did find this:
The handle even adjusts to the correct height so I do not need to stoop to drag it along.
Our landlady happened by this afternoon and saw it. She said it was exactly what I needed. She even told me the Swiss German word for it. But it was quite long and had multiple syllables. I immediately forgot what it was.
So I may be an "Old Lady." But at least I am an Old Lady who can now accomplish her errands on foot.
