Dan was supposed to be having an overnight stay in London tonight, but he managed to wriggle out of it so he's only there tomorrow. As there was nothing in his work diary he took today off and went went gift buying for the December festival. It's a bit early but at least we're not using any of our free time up.
What a great time to shop! Not many people around, but Black Friday prices still in evidence. We had our budget and a list of things the children might like from their Mum, there are four smalls to buy for plus one of them has a birthday next month. Some clothes we wanted for the girls were on a 3 for 2 offer, two books I had on my shortlist were half price, as were some colouring pencils. My SIL had suggested a doll for The Wild Thing and the one I chose was 30% off when we got to the till.
I have also started a wreath for our house and had looked online for embellishments, when I got to the shop they were 25% off and the hanger for the wreath (nothing sticky goes on my doors!) was half price too, so I only paid a pound for it. With all the bits and bobs of savings it means the birthday gift was free compared to the budget so that money can go into savings.
I still wouldn't have got into a fight over any of it though!
