It really was only a few minutes too as this morning saw me helping No1 son pack the last few items into his suitcase and drive him and a friend to a meeting point for his week away.....without us *sob*. I'm sure he cringed when I reached for my phone, (to take a couple of photos so I could join in with Sian's meme) you think he would be used to it by now. Still he humoured his mum.
I will miss this boy :(
No2 and No3 son are completely different builds so on one hand I have slim fit trousers with excess fabric around the bum and on the other hand regular fit trousers which need excess fabric around the bum!
And guess what?
When we found some trousers they only had one pair in stock, for both of them. So I queued and queued (and took a sneaky photo - you can see darling husband waiting patiently) to order more only to find that they are completely out of stock at the main warehouse and probably won't get any more in before school starts! Yikes..one pair of school trousers each is a recipe for disaster. I was hoping to get all the main stuff done today but it looks like there will be more uniform shopping ahead. grrr.
By now we are all hungry so we stopped in Pizza Express *delish* a sloppy giuseppe for me and No3 son. America for No2 son and a Pollo Forza for the hubster. With a full belly we were ready to tackle the shop picking, fitting and buying. Surprisingly there was no waiting or queuing and both chose shoes that were in stock and fitted them. hooray.
On the way home we took a detour to my sisters for a cuppa. My brother-in-law even posed for a photo. Someone knows me well. Mum and Dad were home too, our second cuppa stop, before arriving home.
.....this really was Me, today, on Monday.
