Lazy Sunday? I wish!

Today I have been busier than a one-legged man in an arse-kicking contest. I don't mind being on holiday, I just wish all the chores would stay hidden until I was back at work. Ironing, floor mopping, dishes...clothes washing...yadda yadda....
School is looming again for the small people in our house which means uniforms and books and shoes...at least when we hit the shops early this monring we didn't have to run ragged thru Xmas shoppers, a small blessing but you gotta take it when you can! THEN, having been given some vouvhers for Xmas I turned into a Xmas shopper and trolled about in some shops having sales and made sure I got my money's worth. My dear ol' Mum had sent me a blouse which (ahem) was too big so I had to return it, managed to swap it for 2 skirts that I WOULD be seen dead in. My two daughters were thrilled to know that there does indeed come a day when a mother shouldn't buy clothing for her offspring.

Ah pre-return to school shopping... how I hated it as a child. New uniform always sucked. The only consolation was occasionally gatting the folks to agree to the necessity of a snazzy new pencil case...

Sounds to me like you've earned some alcohol based recuperation...

I hate shopping.

My granny always used to buy me clothes for birthdays/christmas - right up till she died (I was about 30 then) and the things were always unwearable and hideous. I once thought I was being very clever and said it was really nice to get homemade presents, thinking she might make some jam for me or something - but no, she gave me this pair of trousers made of what looked like old curtains that she had lovingly made herself. I wish I'd kept them actually.

Back to school shopping... I never liked it either. Kids would always wheedle new pencil cases etc out of me, though, so maybe they didnt mind too much.

I like to put off my chores until the weekend. It just seems easier to ignore them on the weekend than it is during the week.

Pixie, I reckon the powers who be really do hate me!! I am sure that my next meeting will not be changed!!
Steve - I bought my lawyer mate a Mr Bean pencil case when he was admitted to the bar. I am certain he was equally excited! am off to a wine.
Oi! RB< you must yhave been "blinded" by that choice!! hahahhaha
Meggie, I think you must have met Steve's parents? However, I quite like pencil cases myself....
As for you, Mike - you are soooo funny, are you sure you are American???
