Yesterday morning, at breakfast, I asked hubby if he had any cash.
"I've got a tenner" he replied.
"Good ", I said, "Tonight at Izzy's parents' evening, if you see Alex's mum, give her the tenner. It's for the teacher's Christmas present" (Don't even go there)
Later that day I walked into Izzy's school for Parents' Evening and saw Alex's mum.
"Your husband's just gone through", she said.
"Did he give you some money?" I asked.
"No" she replied.
I walked through to find hubby sitting waiting our turn.
"Why didn't you given Alex's mum the tenner?" I asked.
"Aaaaah", he said, "At work today someone asked me for a tenner deposit for our Christmas meal, I opened my wallet, saw the tenner and said "I've got a tenner, but I can't give it you. Carol said I have to use it for something else", but I couldn't remember what it was."!
It's a step in the right direction.......
