If I didn't know how to sew!!
What would I have done if I didn't know how to sew???? Let me set the scene. It is 4pm....Zoe is getting ready for her Minkey Hockey game(Starts at 5pm so need to leave the house at 4.40 at the latest) and yells out "Where is my skirt?"....I was preparing to haul it out of the huge dirty washing basket, give it a shake and hand it over to her. But No, small miracles do happen and a load of washing was put on today....in actual fact it is still in the machine, a mere 6 hours since the buzzer told me it was finished!!! What to do?? Haul skirt from machine, give it a shake and hand it over to her??? Put it in the dryer we don't even own?? Tie it to the aerial of the car and hope it is dry on arrival?? I even give her a navy hockey skirt I have.....who the hell I am trying to kid....that a skirt that fits me is going to fit my 6 year old!!! I opt for the "Wear tracksuit pants"..."No it is too hot!"..and it is!! We locate a pair of blue shorts that she tries on and discover they are about 2mm longer than her undies....Not a good look. So despite being a crap mother in many areas.....I can come to the rescue and whip her up and new navy blue skirt that looks great and she can wear it for future games and to school!!!
