This morning I put on a new necklace (I found it in my ‘holiday jewellery bag’ when we went away, and can’t remember when I actually bought it #whoops!)
On the way to the train station the 12 year old boy commented “Oh, is that a new necklace, Mum?”
I told him it was – thinking how he is pretty good for a pre-teen boy at noticing such things, and how it would serve him well in later life, until he followed up with
“It’s like something I’d make in DT……………………………
and I’m not very good at DT”
So, maybe not quite such a compliment.
(His sister then proceeded to help me take a selfie of the necklace with limited degrees of success!!)
