Meadowhall Shopping Centre. - updated


 Hi,
It seems ages since I put anything on my blog,  but last week was not that good,  Its a beautiful day here,  the sun is shining and its now quite warm, very cold first thing, hopefully my washing will dry.
 I had some brilliant news regarding my eye the tumour has almost gone,  its a relief is nearly over.
We always visit Meadowhall Shopping Centre for some retail therapy, after the hospital appointment,  it is a huge shopping centre,  with 290 stores,  and covers 1.5 million square feet of floor space,  12,000 parking spaces and even a helicopter pad for those wanting to spend lottery millions,  attracting 25 million visitors a year.  I don't think we have seen it all yet,  even though we have visited it many times over the years,  The locals call it omeadow hell.
The restaurants range from Thai and Japanese,  Italian, American and British cooking.   Yes there is something for everyone including a cinema.
While we were walking around we saw these hearts dotted around,  I have no idea what they are for,  but here are just a few of them.  I did try to find out what they were for, but there's no information on their web site.  The hearts were lovely, colourful and well designed and every one was different.
Thanks to Kathy I have been given a link to read about the heart,  if you want to know more follow the link
Have a lovely weekend.
Hugs Margaret

  3. Hi Margaret! Wonderful to hear such good news!

    You say you haven't blogged, but you have released timed posts, and they are always interesting!

    I believe I have found an explanation for the very colorful hearts. Here is a newspaper article about them.
