Come and tell me that I was right to spend madly on clothes for me whilst picking up flowers for babysitters!

I think you've answered your own question! Why don't you compromise, take 2 things back and keep the other 2!

Well, if you didn't spend that much and it doesn't mean your kids will starve for the rest of the month - sod it! A happy mummy is worth thousands imo!

Weellll... .what the hell? If your kids start to starve they can always eat the sandals . Assuming they were leather .....

Anyhow food is very overrated. Most of it seems to poison you or make you fat and my children have waaaay too much energy anyway .

As I see it, the only thing you did wrong was not buy a skirt or a pair of trousers to go with the tops and the jacket.

I've just been out to buy household essentials and I came home with another pair of flip flops. That's 4 pairs I've bought this year! I blame you entirely. I ummed and arrred about it and thought, I wonder what Ruby would have done! Lovely flip flops, but I've got nothing to clean the bath with!

Well done you.

I did similiar few weeks ago - went out for a tube of paint and came back with rather nice dress and matching shoes...

Makes you feel really good and anyway you should buy things when you see them - I spend 5 hours shopping on Monday and there was NOTHING in the shops!
