Having defeated my ioroning pile for the first time in well over a year,and with a treat myself card in my pocket cos we didn't spend all the holiday money,I hit Bluewater today.I left all the kids but Merlin with Darren and did serious shopping.Accidently forgot the little pram so Merlin had to ride in the tandem but all that space for shopping.
No idea what I spent,the pushchair was that laiden all you could see was one little Merlin foot peeking out from under the bags(the weren't on him please don't call SS they were on the plastic bar thingy,he was fine).I'll get the receipts out tomorrow,but some was vouchers,some was school stuff,feels little bit naughty

Mothercare has so many lovely baby gros and bodysuits.Trouble is I had to choose.Had to leave some lovely stuff behind.With Merlin I can buy two packs one the next size.Matildas in the biggest so I can't make that excuse,and she only needs so many.
Some stuff's just so nice you have to buy.
I have to do receipts cos I need to do accounts.Think it won't be pretty.

I have to get a seperate bank account,then he'll never know.Actually you're right Rachel,all stuff the kids need.Arthur's got a knight outfit from ELC cos he had vouchers left from his birthday in January.The three eldest had book vouchers from two Christmasses ago for Waterstones so I used those.Couple of little treats here and there but the rest is clothes.Oh and I found a Julia Donaldson/Axle Scheffler book we don't have and a new book by the same person who did Aliens Love Underpants.
All I got was a sandwich,drink and a chocolate bar for lunch,even Darren got t shirts.I should've got something

we just have so many things going in,things going out on different days it would be easier to have the joint one for payments and bills and make sure they're covered that way,then I know what's in mine is for the kids and Tescos.Also,he's so bad at budgeting.He runs out and borrows it off me.He pays it back payday but borrows it again so I always end up short,but he'll still want his coke,expensive cheese and stuff from Tescos.Needs to be sorted,so much money is just wasted cos he knows he can dip into mine,I wouldn't mind but that's the kids money,I need to spend it on them.
Did a silly thing yesterday.I used self checkout at Boots.All fine,but I set the alarm off going out the shop.The lady checked the bag,said it was fine,but I set off every alarm going into and out of every other shop I went to.I forgot(and so did the lady showing me how to use the self checkout0 TAGS.I have to go bag and have them removed cos they're inky ones.Gets worse,I can't find the receipt.They should be able to tell from the bar code they've been zapped and paid for,I hope.I'll ring first,but I still have to go all the way up there.Again.Hope they're nice and helpful.Hope they don't think I'm a shoplifter.Wish I could find the receipt

Good luck Jo-hope boots understanding for ya.
Don't you hate that when you get in and realise you only got yourself a measly butty!!!!! I'm usually like that,spoil everyone else bar me!!! Today went to asda,got top,keks and undies!!! Didn't even go near boys clothes-found stacks of t-shirts the other night that neither have had on their backs yet so will resist getting them anymore stuff,felt a lil selfish but thankfully it didn't last!!!
We have seperate accounts,always have always will!!! Ian a bit same,likes certain brands so I have to do aldi,and then tesco,hence he has to put 'keep' in my account hehe!!!!!!! Well I am like a maid!!!!!! Maids don't work for free!!! All boys money goes on boys-Ians cash pays for my ciggies nowt left over but cant complain.
