Me: feeling the blood drain from my cheeks, suddenly realises my trip to the shops for bread and milk late yesterday was swallowed by other purchases which didn’t include the necessary milk.
“Umm oops, yes. Oh no, now I’ll have to go to the shops again.”
Hubby “There’s enough milk for a few coffees after that there’s an open wine”.
