I am also recovering from spending so much on bear. This weekend I sent him to my sister in law's with some new clothes. Bear helped to choose them, they looked so smart, and I was a bit distracted. However I was picking them up in BHS instead of Matalan and nearly fainted at the checkout. It serves me right for not checking the price tag first. Bear is not too bad with me setting spending limits, but he enjoyed the kit so much that I gritted my teeth and paid for a few bits that cost more than his entire summer wardrobe two years ago. I know prices have gone up and I know he is a lot bigger, but I shall be sticking very close to Matalan and ebay in future.
Then there were shoes. He has been telling me his shoes were comfy, they were fine, there was no problem. I kept nagging at him as I know that he won't tell me anything until the perfect awkward moment. However I managed to get him to admit that his shoes were uncomfortable. Of course they were. When I got him measured yesterday his feet were a full size bigger than his shoes. I winced at the price, but paid.
However I have just got a meccano style, 5ft x 2ft x 1ft shelving unit down two flights of stairs, around some nasty corners, out of the front door and down the front steps. It was touch and go for a while, and at one point I thought I would have to lean out of a window and shout for help having got the unit truly wedged, but I did it. The glow of accomplishment will keep me going for a long while. Besides, while I was doing that I wasn't doing the ironing.
