Over breakfast this morning, and the din of Boy racing round the house shrieking like a Banshee, Button asked me if I was working today.
Me: No, I’ve got a lovely day of sewing planned.
B: What are you making?
Me: A dress.
B: For me????
Cue big blue eyes and a hopeful expression.
Me: No, sweetie, this one’s for me.
B: But Mummy, you’ve got at least four things in your wardrobe and I have absolutely nothing to wear.
In tone of absolute astonishment and dismay.
I have created a monster!
