My mum took pity on me when I blogged that I couldn’t afford a Bonds tracksuit top from Woolies and sent a text message saying she’d pay for it.
So I hoofed back to discover I wasn’t the only one who’d gone berserk at the prospect of clothes shopping in a supermarket – most of the Bonds stuff was gone, but what was left WAS ON SALE!!!
Ideally I’d have gone for a big, roomy tracksuit top but I settled on the single remaining “S” marked down from $40 to $28 and proceeded to wear it everywhere for the next few days.
I worked from home on Friday and paired it with my Bonds trakkie daks, then couldn’t be bothered to get changed for school pick-up and sauntered into the playground wearing the matching set.
It felt a little wrong to walk through the gates in a Woolies tracksuit, but I think I pulled it off because the weather was shocking and people had other things to worry about than Alana losing the fashion plot.
And that was pretty much the best thing that happened to me this week, other than being treated to a gorgeous dinner at Sake restaurant where I nibbled on lovely stuff like this spicy salmon rice blissfulness …
And this …
(That’s panko-crumbed pork belly I’ll have you know. Mmmmm.)
And took arty photos like this …
As for the rest of the week at HouseGoesHome:
>> On Tuesday I asked How Old Do You Feel? And had a little panic about being three years off 50.
>> On Wednesday I got freaked out about sharing my kids with my ex’s girlfriend, SSF (also causing much speculation about what her allocated blog initials SSF stands for … ).
>> On Thursday I wished I could get my baby back after she received a letter offering her a spot at HIGH SCHOOL.
>> On Friday I revealed my need to digitally detox, leading some followers to believe I’d be radio silent this weekend … nah, it’s AGES away cause I’m a poor single mum. But a girl’s gotta dream.
>> And on Saturday I had a giggle at all the sketches Hollywod celebs have been doing for Red Nose Day.
Over at Kidspot:
>> Watch this little boy battling cancer get his Batman wish in a tearjerker doco trailer.
>> Mum charged with murder after diluting her breastmilk (this one went NUTS … quite possibly my highest rating story EVER at Kidspot)
How was your week? Why does nobody ever tell me????
Song of the day: Donna Summer “Hot stuff”
