#SoCS August 3/19 – Astronomical

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “astronomical.” Use it any way you like. Have fun!

Well this totally suits my mood right now, as I have just been preparing Lil Princess for her start to secondary school.

Uniform buying is not cheap!

She doesn’t need to buy specific trousers/skirts etc, but the blouses have to be specific, from one shop in our area (Red and white stripes. Not attractive, but not as bad as my burgundy and pink ensemble from my school days!) We visited the shop today, having already ordered the basic stuff from a cheaper source. £23 pounds for two shirts.

£23!!!!

And I need to get another set yet too as two shirts won’t be enough.

Blazer bought too.

So far I think we have spent around £180 on her uniform, a bit of his and stationery.

Then it is shoe and school bag shopping time… Oh Jeez, let the fun begin!

It inspired an acrostic poem!

Astronomical
Secondary school uniform prices
Truly test a parents wallet
Ridiculous price tags
On everything from shoes to shirts
Nothing less than a tenner
Only the tie
Most has to be bought from specific shops
Impossible to save
Can't cheat and go to Asda
And she's only going to grow
Lordy! Let the spending begin!

My interactive peeps!
