Today's mission is to find suitable school shoes for Brylee, and a warm scarf and black pantyhose. Then her uniform will be complete.
I've ordered their new school uniforms... to my shock and horror it's costing $746 for ONE set of everything they need to wear.
1 shirt for each of them, 1 skirt for Brylee, 1 pair of trousers for Griffin, 1 jumper for Brylee and 1 Jacket for Griffin and a pair of PE shorts each! And we have to get their PE t-shirts yet.
Once I add in the shoes, scarf, pantyhose and PE tops I will have spent about a thousand dollars on uniform. Bloody hell.
I don't remember spending that much on school uniforms EVER. *sigh*
I think that will be 'us' for the day! We will probably have lunch at the mall... wander around a bit then come home and relax.
Once we get to Cambridge we won't be 'relaxing' for quite a while, so we better make the most of it now.
Shoes - DONE
Pantyhose - DONE
Socks - DONE
Scarf - NOT DONE
Lunch - DONE
Sylvia Park wasn't too crowded today, thankfully. I really loath crowds. And ignorant pricks who stand slap bang in the middle of the 'walkway' in bunches, and won't MOVE out of the bloody way. Grrrr.
I used to love shopping but not when every man and his dog is at the mall too.
Give me 9 am on a Monday morning, when it's deserted.
I bought Griffin a mobile phone today too. His reaction was very muted. NOTHING like Brylee's that's for sure. He is thrilled though.
It means he can now keep in touch with his friends here once we live in Cambridge.
8.47 pm: just home from having a really lovely dinner at my Aunt and Uncles up the road. Roast pork 'n' veges followed by Apple & Guava crumble AND Quince crumble too! I wasn't sure I'd like the quince, but I did.
It's Coronation Street time! Yaaaa.
