Warning! For Internal Use Only.

There are many, many wonderful things about having children. Today for example, we have this weather:

So we have school closures and the perfect excuse to hurtle down slopes on brightly coloured bits of plastic. However, what no-one tells you at ante-natal class is how breathtakingly blunt children can be. My eldest has become adept at the carefully chosen euphemism, my youngest still deals in total honesty.

‘Oh! You’ve made yourself a dressing gown!’
Crest-fallen, I have removed the pockets and banished it to the under-stairs cupboard. I will wear you outside of the house, you are not a bed jacket. We just need a bit of time apart that furry jacket and I.
Lest you fear a wholly negative post I do have a Disaster Recovery Plan. Could the pockets become slippers? I’m thinking that hands and feet are roughly the same size.

These have done Stirling service so far and it seems a shame not to re-use the cork soles. I reckon all I need is a decent glue gun. Very open to advice and opinions, let’s Save The Slippers!
