    Re: A question

    fed up. Disgusted, unable or unwilling to put up with something. For example, I'm fed up--let's leave right now. Of these colloquial expressions, fed up, alluding to being overfull from having overeaten, dates from about 1900.[HoughtonMifflin]

    In the context of your example, the children were cross because they had to go shopping (?)
