How quickly four and a half years have gone past.
That I don't like dark uniforms on young children. It's true that it could be worse: it could be bottle green. But why not a dainty light stripe, a flippy skirt, a chic A-line dress, or an upcycled jolly curtain? What do French children wear to school?
How difficult it is to buy uniforms that aren't made of acrylic, viscose, and other synonyms for 'uncomfortable'. Or polyester, which ages beyond redemption in one wash. A minor word of thanks to Marks and Spencer, who sell some cotton school clothes.
I guess I sound like a Guardian reader now. That's what covering schoolbooks in clear contact does to you. Organic rhubarb schnapps, anyone?
