Westfield is always the one from me when coming down from B town. Central line straight into town.

Does anybody use a clothes storage unit for their gear?
Presume it’s best to go climate controlled.
What do people use to package stuff up?

Any recommendations on pyjama sets (top and bottoms)? Uniqlo any good?

Need to get one for the old man, so bonus points for checks or similar old man style.

Meant to be going to a wedding tomorrow, my girlfriend is a bridesmaid so I can't really get out of it. If I catch covid there, it means I'll be spending christmas either on my own or with her, instead of with my mum and my dad for the first time in about 10 years. Last year I was stuck in my flat with my brother, not very festive.

Really don't want to miss Christmas again, really don't want to go the wedding.

What do I do ?

Yes, what Swede said is a good option, but you then shouldn't see your gf after the wedding too.

Don't know if that's if feasible

I’d just tell her the truth. Ain’t your wedding and you’re already scheduled to see your parents you haven’t seen in TEN years and you can’t risk getting covid (and it is risky at the mo). Under circumstances/past events she’ll understand (hopefully)

If Christmas with your girlfriend seems so bad you should probably dump her before the wedding.
