    Been itching to buy something over the past few days but holding off for the Sainsbury’s sale. Popped in today and my store has already started putting the stock out with a sign saying ‘toy sale soon’
    I’ve got my eye on an avengers set with a gauntlet and hulk/captain america I think it was.
    I saw Lego, hot wheels, big jurrasic world dinosaur. Can’t remember what else. They
    Usually don’t put them out until the night before.

    Everyone has been doing so well. This is the first year I haven't started early as I'm at a total loss of what to buy. Husbands xbox has broken so I'll get him a new one of those but what do you buy an 8 year old ? He wants hotwheels Id but that's so expensive he wont get much else if it stays that way.

    Sending the geekboxes back. Getting subscription for 2 months instead. I am so mad, they sent 3 duplicate 'mystery' boxes and they were all for men!! I even asked customer services if they would be suitabke for the girls' ages and they said they would.

    So far I have the blue lego ninjago dragon for my 6 year old nephew and some smellies sets for the grandparents. Everyone will also get a lovely school pic but I'm struggling for ideas this year :( and just too many people to buy for

    Lego side ghost lab set down to £10
    Reserved a scooter for m
    He’s almost done now!

    I was going to get them pjs and slippers each but they like to get each other a present so I thought it’d be nice for them to pick out some pjs and slippers for each other and saves me getting another gift.

    Shopdisney order arrived: Descendants bumbag, notebook and hoodie for DD1 and 2 tree decorations for me :)
    Also a friend in the US very kindly ordered the Cookieswirlc Barbie for me as Walmart don't ship internationally. DD1 is going to freak as I told her we probably wouldn't be able to get it!
    Lastly I got a few bits from Argos: rubiks cube for DD1 and the junior version for DD2 and DS, doll carrier for DD2, phonics board for DS and a pogo board (not sure who this will be for yet)
