Picture the scene Dear Reader. There I am in the changing room of Next with the Smallest Baby Girl (who has insisted on joining me) trying on a new frock for New Year’s Eve. She is sitting on the shelf in the changing room, legs swinging nonchalantly The conversation proceeds thus:
SBG – ‘Are you going to be naked Nanny?’
Me – ‘No (she looked relieved at this). I’m just going to try this on over my jeans.
SBG – (looking with great interest as I struggle to do the zip up) ‘Is it going to do up Nanny?’
Me – ‘I hope so’.
SBG – (In a considered fashion) ‘Well you are a BIT fat Nanny’.
*Slightly stunned silence from me*
Note to self – do not take small children into the changing room of ANY shop. EVER.
