Yesterday my Mum and I attended two carol services at school. I thought given that it was Christmas I ought to dig out my churchgoing type of gear so on went the Hobbs boughts (at least 13 years old now) a very traditional Jigsaw coat, H&M navy leather gloves and a new bag. I kept it modern with a leopard print scarf. Actually that’s a complete lie – it was just the nearest one to hand and I thought that chapel might be chilly.
On seeing the bag my son said “Oh Mum, you’ve got a new Mulberry.” Well identified I thought for a ten year old boy – other than the fact that it was £5 from Primark! It’s great – just the right size for keys, phone, money and of course – tissues. I am definitely turning into my Mum. I can no longer watch the children do anything without crying!! It’s all downhill from here!
