Apparently it is not the done thing to show one’s pants when one does a handstand. So, despite a few very hot days this last week, Abigail has insisted on wearing dark grey winter trousers instead of a skirt, and until today has refused the idea of a summer dress. Because clearly, being able to do handstands is far more important than being at the right temperature
So today we scoured the shops for a pair of grey culottes which might be the solution to strike a happy medium, but could we find any anywhere? Could we buffalo! Not in the official ‘uniform shop’ of the city, nor in Woolies, or BHS (admittedly didn’t get as far as M&S, must check the website). So, if anyone sees any grey (or mid-blue & white, I suppose!) culottes/skort type things anywhere which might be suitable for schoolwear, we’re interested!
Anna meanwhile had a fabulous time on her residential, the highlight of the trip being the climbing wall, apparently. Lovely to have her back, even if it did mean another early start today for a catchup swimming lesson. The rest of the day is going to be quiet though, I hope, I have laundry to sort (hence the blogging).
Going out this evening on a works meal to Cafe Paradiso so that should be good, I might even wear a dress. I can’t do handstands anyway so I don’t need to worry
