Sucker for sales

Dan and I went shopping last night. We worked quickly and efficiently from the moment we got home and managed to get both kids down to bed by 8 o'clock! That's quite a record for us. My mother, the most wonderful, came over to keep an ear out (and did some quilting) while we scooted off to the local Westfield. We had to be quick - the department stores were closing at 9pm and the supermarkets by 10pm.

What a succesful trip it was! We managed to visit Kmart, Target, Coles and Woolworths and got almost everything that we'd planned... and more than a few unplanned items. Kids' summer clothes were heavily discounted! I didn't grab too many, but it's so incredible that they can sell them for so little. $5 shirts and pants. You can't even make them that cheaply. I'm still refraining from buying girls' clothes just yet - but the temptation is getting harder to resist as we get closer and closer to meeting our little one. Just four weeks to go!
