Day 253 – Shopping by sms…..
So much for that super chilled weekend…..
I had managed to lose the kids from my bed around 4am (they feel the need to stick to me like limpets in the absence of their Dad). I can assure you the only benefit of a Hubbie away is a Big Bed to yourself, and it just isn’t the same when you have two wiggly worms wriggling next to you! I sighed and promised them the joys of uninterrupted TV in the morning, if they would only crawl back to their own beds for a few hours. It worked.
However no-one had warned my Hubbie that early morning phone calls on the weekend, do not cut with me. I just thought he knew me well enough. However it was a bit of a catch 22 situation, as he was out shopping (and had been for a few hours in Shanghai) and was desperate for some price advise and advise on which brands to buy. Bang went my lie-in, and for 2 hours I checked and double checked prices in Euros and Dollars, with the only outcome a super set of headphones which hopefully if not fake, have saved a fair bit of money (and will be a big help on my thrice weekly trips to the pool). The other benefit however was the formation of a shopping list already for the US, and a quick email confirmation from Richard that we can start ordering….. yippee!
Now back to the relaxing weekend, and lunch with Pieter and Jules…..
