It's World Book Day today - where school children get to dress up as a character from their favourite book. You may remember in my last post, I was procrastinating about making my son a pair of Tintin pantaloons. Well I'm pleased to report that in order to deck him out as his hero, ALL stops were pulled out. Us paragons of motherhood need to lead by example, so here's a rundown of the rocky path I had to venture down to get there.....
1. Open wardrobe and find white shirt, blue jumper and white football socks.
2. Purchase a pair of brown shorts.
3. Toil away for several minutes, even as many as five, to sew elastic around the bottom of each leg.
Can somebody pass me my award now please?
Here's the cub reporter in all his finery:
Tintin strikes back.....
|In case you think we live in a violent, gun-loving household, |
can I just point out that Tintin is quite often shown carrying a revolver!
Right, just off to polish my halo now. x
