Hubby picked up his snooker glasses.
Then it was time to pick up some magic bags.
I bumped into one of the Stepford mums from my sons's First school.
Both her kids are at Uni.
"Isn't it expensive going to Uni?" She said.
"I wouldn't know,"I replied.
*This is some of things she said to me when I was going through the breakup of my first marriage back in 2011.*
*"You moved your boyfriend in a bit quickly, after your husband left!"
My reply was: "Hotel rooms are very expensive!"
She blocked my car in the school car park, so I couldn't get out. When she FINALLY came back to the car, I told her either move it, or I will take it out...
*The fun I had with those Stepford Wives!*
