Shopping plans foiled

I could weep, there have been some major sample sales happening in and around London  but I had to give them all a miss....Mr Fashion (Twin 1) chose to bite into a Persil liquid tab whilst at the new childminders; so frantic dash to A&E in rush hour. Thankfully its not toxic and he was not harmed in any way. Just lots of coughing, throwing up but nothing got properly ingested to foam up inside him or go into his lungs! We had to hang about for 3 hours for him to be observed. They wanted to check if he would do a bowel movement (which he obliged) and no it did not smell any nicer than normal. He's learnt his lesson and this is probably his first childhood memory as he tell's it; "Shazzon house, blue washing, bite it, yucky, was sick...". so there you go - his speech therapist would be proud of that sentence construction.

So no Gina shoes for me, no Lara Bohic jewellery, no Goat cashmere, No Jenny Packham glamourous evening wear :-(

Hopefully nothing else will happen and I'll see if I can make these sales - I'm always out for a bargain!

  1. I am trying to type with a big fluffy persian cat half asleep on my keyboard - it is providing difficult. Sporadically she is swiping at my fingers - nothing like middle class woes eh? Shame you didn't get any of your shopping done; I can only imagine uber frustration. I wish I lived in London just so I could attend sample sales ha! Sadly cannot just pop to London with every whim, and they are usually so last minute notice. Glad he's fine; no more ingesting Persil liquid tabs for a while I hope! Hope you are well xx

  2. Can't believe he did that, those twins keep you busy don't they!
