More evidence (if any were needed) that I am slightly deranged ...
Today the girls have another non uniform day, this time a fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care. You'll have seen the little daffodil badges on sale all over everywhere if you're in the UK; it's a great cause we're happy to support. Anyway, the theme for the day was "yellow and green" - two colours that don't appear in our wardrobe. I had said, "Well, we'll dye a white T-shirt and you can wear your jeans and green and yellow ribbons in your hair." Oh no. That wouldn't do
It's entirely my own fault but my children know that if they ask me to make them a skirt, I am never going to say no. And given the chance to go and browse in John Lewis and stroke all their new Amy Butler* and Tanya Whelan - well, would you have turned it down?
These skirts made me love my overlocker all over again - even if I did run out of cotton and have to rethread it. Like me, my tiddlers love a long swirly skirt, and who can blame them?
*(yes, I know I said I didn't like Amy Butler fabrics. I was WRONG.)
