Suits You


First tooth
First steps
First day at school
First suit

That went fast.

Tonight is prom night for my elder son George.
I had to make do with a leavers' disco in the school hall. I went to a girls' school so as you can imagine it was not a memorable night.
These days schools throw elaborate events where everyone dresses up to the nines and serious money is spent. We got off quite lightly. George already had shoes and a shirt so we bought him the suit and tie and his ticket. Charlie has driven him to the hotel which has saved us a considerable amount of cash. A lot of kids arrive in limousines, vintage cars, carriages and even helicopters.
 I know, don't get me started.

We have begun saving for Katie's prom in five years time.
 Girls apparently require; the dress, the shoes, the jewellery, the hair, the nails and the spray tan and I can't see her being content with a lift from dad.

And the bag, I forgot the bag.
