An old exchange between me and the Mon:
Mon: preschools are so expensive
Me: True. I don't know what they do with all that money. Sat down and worked out finances for the month, last night. Somewhat precarious but I managed to make ends meet and put some emergency cash aside. And this morning Vicky says, school fees. Which just gobbled up that emergency, bah!
Yes, I don't like spending emergency cash, not even for emergencies. Only shopping counts!
Mon: because shopping is real emergencies. everything else is fate kicking us in the backside.
*looks gratefully at Mon*
I'm going to blog that, I'm afraid.
On this note I announce that I bought four shirts and two pairs of trousers and a corduroy skirt from the Pantaloons sale this time. Am trying to tell myself it's all work gear which I badly needed so I really oughtn't feel so guilty. And am trying not to think of the nine panties and five bras I bought at the Loveable sale just weeks ago. A girl needs clothes, you know.
