ExasperatedAlmostAlways Mon 07-Dec-15 13:22:21

Thanks for the thread Reastie.

Iv lost my motivation the past week. My husband's been working away for two weeks and got almost two weeks to go. Longest wev ever been apart and though I'm coping fine with the kids and house and everything I miss him so much sad so my Xmas spirits been a bit zapped.

Anyone seen anywhere that's got cheap Xmas jumpers or long sleeve t-shirt? Schools having a Xmas jumper day and my girls won't wear them again, so grudge it and don't want to pay anymore than twenty at most for both?

I ordered from la reroute when it was the previius sale of 50% off and 60% off sale stuff and it did take quite awhile to arrive about two weeks.
