Sitting here with a very large G&T having spent the afternoon school shoes/trainers/football boot shopping with my 3 kids with eldest nearly 13 Dd constantly bitching to her younger brothers resulting fighting in Sport Direct and me just generally losing the will - hey ho will have definitely earned our family holiday next week! Anyone had a similar afternoon?
