I don't think I normally complain too much on this blog. But since October is a long month, I thought I should put a complaint in now, get it out of the way and move on.
My son had a dress up birthday party to go to today. It was a fairy party. He was going to be the only boy. That is not a problem, it really doesn't worry him. Of course he would need a 'new' dress up outfit, as we didn't think 'Racing car driver'/Wizard/Superman would cut it at a fairy party. So off we went to Spotlight on 'Sale Day' to look for an Elf costume. There were no Elf costumes... grumble.
We settled on a "Woody" costume..... no price attached.... full price $50, sale price $40..... grumble, grumble.
After wearing the Woody costume for half an hour, there are already snags appearing in the cheap polyester fabric...... grumble, grumble, grumble.
What have I learnt from this?? Make it yourself, lazybones. I have actually got plans to replicate this one in a much sturdier non-snagging fabric. I will take my time, and get it right. Because I am not paying $40 for rubbish in future.
Of course despite all this grumbling by me, James loves looking like Woody. And I think he looks pretty cute too.
