The Day Before....

Our School has a huge celebration planned for tomorrow. A little bit Open Day and lot bit 30th anniversary and fundraising event. We'll just be there a-a-a-a-l-l-l-l day (and empty out our pockets completely, I daresay). Dh is taking his coffee machine so it needs to be set up early. I'm flitting between my kid's classes stalls. The Principal hinted at something along the lines of an unwind-at-the-end dinner for staff. We'll see what happens. My dilemma has become what to do I do today? I need to make 40 scones and I'm oh so tempted to pick up the ingredients and make them at school this morning and just stay on to help with setting up. Mr Busy's Thursday teacher needs to hand 100 pieces of Primary Schoolers art, for example. Otherwise I could come home and do the dishes. Pffft. Where's the fun in that?!

My busy Thursday night turned out fine. I went down to my brother's place and his wife had piles of clothes all ready for me to go through. Oh. My. Goodness. There were items in those piles that I had been looking for in the shops!!!!! Just as well I'm a hopeless shopper and give up before I get too far into it! Last night I pulled on a pair of jeans and you know what? For the second time in my life I had a pair that didn't need altering at all. I phoned her and asked her to put aside the others that were that same size. You know why they fitted so well? They'd been pre-stretched and worn in to a body, instead of that tight just-been-washed feel that you get when you try on new jeans. I'm feeling like a new woman and I didn't pay a cent. I'm so glad they had money before they had kids....she has great clothes LOL. Miss Sunshine even come home with a really nice winter coat.

Wow, sounds like a dream come true--all new clothes and you didn't have to go shopping! Sounds fun!

It's the best way to 'shop' I think. Especially when it's not your favourite thing to do.
