Apparently bear should have been wearing trainers at school. I thought he had pumps, but apparently he doesn't. I have no idea where they could have gone. He said nothing, school said nothing, at least until yesterday when bear was given the hard word - trainers for Sports Day on Friday morning - or else. Bear is really keen to take part in sports day.
This is why I love Amazon Prime. I clicked and ordered trainers to arrive the next day at DH's place of work as I was confident they would get there in work hours and we had a maths lesson tonight. Except they didn't come. They are currently somewhere in Germany.
This is why I love late night opening. We were able to go to Sainsburys and get a pair of supermarket trainers that are okayish and (importantly) £8 and will do for tomorrow.
This means that bear will have two pairs of trainers. I am okay with this. There are 42 days of school holidays starting in 20 days time and I very strongly suspect that the trainers will wear out long before they are outgrown.
Witch Hazel - I agree, it's great when the sewing contestants were helping each other out. I think that is a big part of the show's attraction. It was a great environment. Bless it's the fourth series that has just finished. I don't know if you'll be able to see any others (if you want to), but they all have been similar. Fingers crossed for another show next year.
