Will reply to comments, but in order to clear my mind of negativity, and anon i will reply further to the comments on the rabbit hole post, but i need a bit of ordinaryness (that may not be a word, but it is now) if that makes sense.
Last week was back to school shopping, its probably the worst kind of shopping for me, ok apart from when i was out with the bossman shopping for socks for him...but not going there!
So yes, one 12 year old girl, who thinks she is 16, one 17 year old, who thinks its perfectly reasonable to pay £1110 for a laptop and cannot understand my outright "no" and sons 17 year old girlfriend who really should have her mobile surgically attached to her ear cos she never seemed to be off it..well
it made for one stressed out mum!
I ended the day downing nearly a whole bottle of wine, sod the consequences, well that was my attitude then.
A long day of
"I dont need to try it on, it will fit"......."Im not going through this again, your damn well trying it on"
"Im not wearing that, grannies wear skirts like that"....."your not wearing a skirt that is more like a belt either"
"everybody (huge over-dramatic emphasis on the everybody) wears some make-up to school"...."I dont care what everybody does, your not"....a full on sulk followed where i didnt get spoken to for about an hour....it was lovely while it lasted.
Oh and getting the shoes, bless her she has size 9 feet which for a 12 year old makes it quite difficult to get suitable shoes, girly ones, she argued that its ok to have heels...does she think im that gullible that its acceptable to have 3 inch heels? apparently so, umm no nor are bright greens ones....black for school!
4 shoe shops later, we compromise on a pair, but then it was trainers for both of them.....i must be getting old, trainers are trainers arent they? oh no, no, no, its about having the right style, the right colour, the right label, "mum, Nike was like last year.......its about Vans now" and im meant to give a fuck about all of this?
I confess i caved because it was either caving in or losing my rag in the middle of Sports Direct,
All this before lunch time.
I think i did well to wait until the evening before i hit the bottle.
