Bill Granger, I fear for my skirt and it is all your fault

Oh, Bill. Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill, Bill.

When the Eldest Latte was 2, I bought a skirt in the sale. It was gorgeous - red velvet, a full-length skirt, and despite her shaking her head and saying "No, mummy" as I stood in the changing room, I decided what did a two year old know about velvet, and bought it.

For six years, said full-length skirt has sat around waiting for me to get the sort of life that it deserved.

It never happened.

This week I took it to the alterations shop and asked them to turn it into a knee-length velvet skirt. It will give it a new lease of life. My skirt and I will never be seen apart.

But six years ago, I couldn't bake at all. And if anything is threatening my reunion with this lovely item of clothing, it is Bill Granger's chocolate and banana loaf.

  1. Always take your daughters' advice in changing rooms.

    My daughter sees me approaching the clothes rails and says in a stage whisper 'Step Away From The Frumpy Clothes!'

    You will not need to worry about being frumpy in red velvet - you can be a scarlet woman.


I love comments. I always try to respond - either here in the commentbox or by email if Blogger gives me your email address.
