|I just can't walk past a bargain|
Where has the time gone? I don't know but I do know that the great expanse of time I thought I had to buy stationary, shoes and replace lost lunch boxes and water bottles has escaped me. Having spent the last seven weeks successfully avoiding the crowds, bright lights and musak of the shopping malls, the day finally came when I could avoid it no more. Actually, it wasn't so bad. The sales were on so I managed to get 20% off TD's shoes...and 50% off already reduced shoes for myself!!! Well, you know, how can you walk past a bargain? I don't know what was more shocking - the fact that I got a pair of Diana Ferrari saldals for $10 or that TD No. 2 is now a whopping size 9 and a half!!! After that little surpirse, we ate sushi in amongst the crowds, bright lights and musak before heading home, via a stall of sunglasses which were also on sale - and I needed new sunglasses so...I bought a pair! Okay, okay, apart from the sales, I really do hate shopping malls!!!
Now I think everyone is pretty much kitted out for another eventful year in the Mature Age Student's household. But wait...I still have four weeks until I go back to uni, so I guess my visions of sleep-ins and lazy days by the pool will still be possible. Sorry kids - ha ha!!
