Mr. Waffle has an Italian colleague who has given us loads of beautiful hand me down clothes for the boys. Â Â They arrive in big bags in pristine condition, perfectly ironed. Â We got another delivery during the week.
Mr. Waffle: Why are they so much nicer than all of the clothes we buy them?
Me: Because theyâ€™re really, really expensive and beautifully made.
Him: Itâ€™s as though sheâ€™s handing me a bag with â‚¬500 in it.
Me: Well, not really, I mean sheâ€™s not planning to have any more children so itâ€™s nice for her to give them away to someone who appreciates them. Â Iâ€™d like to do that.
Him: Well then why is our basement full of clothes our children have outgrown?
