I then told him that in just a dress I'd be cold so he went to choose a couple of (random) layers to keep me warm.
He then (by his own conclusion) realised that a jumper/top would cover up 'the pretty dress' too much so he was on the hunt for something 'open'. I got out all my cardigans of all styles and colours and he chose the dullest grey one that I've not worn in forever!
He then chose a scarf to keep me warm and out of all my scarves (40+) he chose the one that looks like an oversized mirkin.
So that was Oliver done. Next to Alex (10) who was to choose the tights/accessories and boots. We soon ditched the gold necklace because it would be covered by the faux fur collar.
And here I am in all my mortifying morning glory. I was due to sit with other mums at 7.30 this morning to watch early morning swimming but I couldn't do it - what a coward! Oliver also was throwing an absolute hissy fit about my 'ugly tights' and he refused to get out of the car too!
Here I go to work looking like a bag of spanners!
Have a good day y'all!
