At 1pm. This year I did all the shopping for the kids in a 24 hour block … and I am still reeling from the shock of how much I spent. Even though I tried to stick to buying things that they need … rather than hamsters in the house, and hatchables, and the other crap they want (because they watch too much Go!). There’s a certain delusion in shopping over a 6 month period obviously (because I bought just the same amount of stuff as every other year).
Anyway … I have now moved on to a 24 hour cleaning frenzy. With only 9 hours left, because we’re having neighbours for drinks at 5pm. I like a target for cleaning so it doesn’t drag on endlessly!
Then we’ve got quite a relaxing Xmas day coming up where I am cooking something nice for only us and our respective parents … which will be a pleasure.
And then … this. And the beach …
