I start blogging again just as school is about to start again!! This week is being spent trying to outfit my son for his new school in the UK. He doesn't have a uniform but he does have a dress code. So, he still needs a blazer, grey trousers, shirts, ties and, of all things at 13, a suit!
Anyone with a boy this age will appreciate that rather than being really easy this is actually a bit of a nightmare! Luckily I found a two piece suit in Coin in navy wool. Now I have to blaze down Oxford Street next Monday looking for a blazer that doesn't resemble a school one but fits a school boy, shirts that aren't school shirts but can be worn with a tie and a pair of shoes that look smart but aren't school shoes. Does any of that make any sense to you?!! If it does please meet me on Oxford Street, London, next Monday around 10.30 a.m.! Thanks!
By comparison buying him a mug, spoon and fork that he liked were easy!! That being the other criteria of course. It has to be acceptable to him as well as the school. Bizzarely the first thing we have had to call a truce over is his socks! He wants little cotton ankle socks, like he wore at his last school, but what he needs are mens formal socks to go with his new snaffle loafers and his lounge suit.....! Fun eh!
