I had my own version of Black Friday and forgot to get Advent calendars for the kids. Thing 1 and Thing 2 (see Dr Seuss)
were not happy and Mrs T rolled out her ‘you had one job’ speech. I rectified it on Monday morning by picking a couple out of a supermarket bargain bin. The kids were happy (double chocolate for three days to catch up), dad was happy (saved money), but Mrs T still thought I was a waste of space. Oh well, in the words of the great philosopher Meat Loaf ‘two out of three ain’t bad’.
