Had the bright idea of going to the shopping centre. Ha! Was my annual reminder of why I never go shopping and buy everything online. Didn't buy a thing. Jst done my supermarket shop online, popped into he farm to buy some meat and about to order DD1's new bedding etc online.

Will have to go soon again though as DH's colleagues gave us 180€ in h&m vouchers for LO's birth. The girls don't need any clothes, but I do. Would IBU to use it all on updating my badly fitting wardrobe? Possibly, but that's what I am going to do.

PR I spend vouchers intended for M on myself if she doesnt need anything and put the money equivalent in her savings account for when she does. Works for us, I know a lot of people would flame us for doing so though but this way she doesnt lose out and vouchers dont go to waste smile

Absolutely not unreasonable. We spent the vouchers from DH's work on the event of our wedding last year on a cot mattress. It goes both ways grin

Totally up for the Thursday in Hawes, btw. Exciting!

PetiteRaleuse Sat 09-Mar-13 14:25:58

Yay! Will be with the girls, dog and possibly my mum but would be great to meet you smile

MM i don't have the money to put in her savings account right now but I do put 50 a month in there anyway..

Nah, spend it pr. When dd1 was born we had money from a few family members, we didn't' open an account for her for ages so it kind if became our Chinese takeaway fund. By the time I opened an account it was mostly IOU notes! I did pay most of it back, honest...

MissMummy1 Sat 09-Mar-13 14:59:31

Ahh see PR I dont make regular monthly payments into her account... Defo spend the vouchers on yourself! grin

I have 5 loads of washing to put away from the past week blush . Velcro baby cries every time I edge away from her. And I haven't had lunch or breakfast yet. sad

I try not to think about that, and is why I use them all the time.

I would have spent some of R's on feeding tops if my mum, sil and mil hadn't got me suitable stuff in the sales and for Christmas. Luckily I've got a couple of pairs of jeans that fit size 12 is a looong way away so I'm set for now, if a little dull wink happy/comfortable mummy = happy baby!

MM, bugger the laundry but you need to eat! brew babies don't spoil for exercising their lungs while mum grabs a sandwich and a cuppa
