Spend, spend, spend! #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


On Monday it's Ellie's birthday! She's having a BBQ and beach party in our back yard....I bought a new paddling pool as the old one sprung a leak so I came up with the great idea of buying some play sand and filling the leaky paddling pool with that. I have had a bit of a faff getting the sand. I ordered it from Tesco and it got stuck in a warehouse somewhere (I have no idea why) & they had to rearrange delivery. Ugh! Such a faff....The delivery driver was right, I should have just went to the beach and got some....lol

All the BBQ food is ordered, her Shopkins cake and she wants pink lemonade so that is on the list too....All that is set to arrive on Monday morning. Fingers crossed everything arrives or Stu will be running to Asda....hehehe

I bought Ellie's cards from Funky Pigeon....Stu thinks I've lost the plot because I got one from her favourite teddy, Monkey! She will love it....

I was on Twitter earlier on in the week and saw a competition from Character. com for some Emoji Pyjamas which I know Becky would love (they were only £8.95). I didn't win them so went to the website and was just going to get them but I saw quite a few things at really low prices. PJ sets from £1.95 and the Minecraft t-shirts were only £2.95. I even got Stu some Marvel & Star Wars t-shirts for £2.95 each....I must keep reminding myself about this website!


All the uniform I ordered from Asda arrived....Most of it fits. Phew. Last year Becky got size 11-12 & Ellie got 10-11 years old trousers which they've grown out of so naturally I bought them both the next size up....They came and they tried them on and with Becky's you could have got two of her in them....lol The one's I bought for Ellie in size 11-12 were huge too but they fit Becky perfectly...It makes no sense. Asda must have changed their supplier or sizing. So I still have to get Ellie some new trousers.....I will get them on Tuesday when I buy the school shoes but apart from that the school shopping is done....

On Sunday we are going to see the Tall Ships in Blyth a town near us which will involve more spending....There is a few fun fairs and lots of food stalls as well as the ships to see....I can't wait!  The weather forecast does not look good. It's set to rain but I'm not going to let it ruin our fun!

As much as I am looking forward to the next couple of weeks I will be glad when they're over so I can stop spending.....

  6. Will have to check out the Character website - sounds like you got some bargains there! Hope Ellie has a lovely birthday on Monday. It's an expensive time of year here too - hubby's birthday earlier this week and Jessica's a couple of weeks later plus the school shopping so can sympathise with you on the spend, spend, spend front! #WotW

  10. Wowsers! That is a lot of spending but birthdays and back-to-school are certainly two big spending times! Glad all your new uniform fits, I'm expecting mine tomorrow(!)!
    I really hope Ellie has a gorgeous birthday today and loved her PJs
