We went to buy school shoes today. 'Cos I'm super organised like that.
And I threw the old ones away on the last day of term so I daren't risk the kids being sent home in September for wearing slippers. Or wellies. Or flip flops.
I was also hoping to pick up a few last minute essential purchases for our jolly holidays next week. I should've known better. I should know that in August when it's sunny and warm - and we're about to go somewhere sunnier and warmer - that all the shops are full of woolly jumpers and winter coats. 'Cos this happens to me every year.
Of course I should really have bought that rather lovely coat I saw. Because when it's freezing cold in November and I go to make a purchase the shops will no doubt be full of bikinis and short shorts...
