Right then I'm officially skint.
Today was spent kitting out the kids for their return to school. Marks and Spencer must be laughing all the way to the bank. I on the other hand am standing at the cash machine frowning.
Feeling a little bouyant thanks in part to some amoxycillin to help my throat and chest feel a bit better I headed out in search of school clobber and accessories.
3 x black trousers, 1x black jumper, 2 x black skirts, 1 x black girls trousers, 1 x purple school bag, 1 x black school bag, 1 x 5 pack of black socks, 1 x 7 pack of white socks, 1 x black boys jacket, 1 x black girls jacket, 2 x gym shoes, 2 x packs of pencils, 2 x coloured pencils, 1 x boys leather school shoes, 1 x girls leather school shoes, 1 x girls black cardigan, 1 x calculator, 1 x "cars" lunchbox, 1 x "cute kitten" lunchbox....not too mention 4 x official school polo shirts in red, 4 x official school polo shirts in black, 2 x official school sweatshirts in red, 2 x official school sweatshirts in black.
Mum played a blinder by wading in to pick up the cost of their jackets and shoes...this is why the world needs Grandparents! Cheers Mum!
Needless to say I came home feeling lighter in the purse area and in need of a couple more painkillers!
