Our Dear Boy got a library bag at the beginning of the year. One of those things from the Department of Education made out of that ‘green’ shopping bag stuff. Then somehow by second term, he had broken it. How? It only goes from his school bag to the school library and back again. It is not like it gets hard core wear and tear. But somehow Our Dear Boy just does wear things hard. His school shoes, school bag, his bike seat, his helmet…they all look like ancient artifacts so early in their young lives.
The school has a no-bag-no-borrow policy. So a bag was required. Our Dear Boy suggested just using a shopping bag (same stuff after all) but this mama’s love apparently has an aesthetic component. So of course, I had to make something from whatever the stash cupboard could yield.
