Re: The First World Problem Thread

I want to go for a run when I get back but just realized my running trainers are at the office.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Baby has grown out of another size before he got to wear most of the clothes I had bought for him. Again. I should probably shop a bit less.

I decided my little boy wouldn't die if he had to wear pink pyjamas from his sister... And things like bodysuits and jeans are unisex anyway...

We run on a tight budget so he'll wear the clothes of his siblings anyway
I feel 100% the same way. I'm determined to get everything second hand. My buggy, crib, dresser, baby can bath in the sink ;-)
They grow out of stuff so quick so what's the point!?

However... I will buy him a new little outfit because.... I want to. :-p lol

Re: The First World Problem Thread

On my way to the trainstation, a guy on a bicycle decided to give me an xray with his xenon, hi-beam lighting device...I think he was trying to signal the hi-jacked jet. Needless to say, I was thankful for the complimentary MRI but could have easily done without the temporary loss of vision.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I did so much sport this past weekend that I can barely move today!

Also, the Japanese deli in the supermarket ran out of brown rice so I *had* to eat sushi made with regular rice!

I have tickets to see the premier of the Lego Movie, but my son has a conflicting KinderMusik class so I'm going to have to go alone like some kind of weirdo

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Biggest problem is the Lego Movie arriving in Switzerland so long after my lad knows about it.

Second problem losing satellite reception every night at the moment, do I buy a bigger dish or Swisscom TV, or just wait to see if the Astra 2F footprint wobble settles down?

My Dad gave me the keys to his Merc but it wouldn't start!

I realised I was using his other Mercedes' key.
