Father Christmas, in his infinite wisdom, bought both Tom and Ned a 'craft set'. It had glue and pom-poms and pipe cleaners and all sorts of ace stuff to make things with. These sets have been a massive hit, and both boys are now a bit of a dab hand with the old PVA.

The down side is that there were several tubes of glitter glue in various colours which are not so expertly applied. We now have a very glittery dining table, for example.

A couple of days ago, Tom put on a pair of trousers which, quite noticeably had a huge run of glitter down the left thigh. He thought this wonderful, and immediately designated them his 'Disco Trousers'.

I'm damned sure that I didn't have any Disco Trousers when I was four. Mind you, that may be because when I was four, there were still 3 years to go before Disco was popularised in this country. But still, seems a bit forward for a young chap.

I'm not sure how many Discos he's actually going to attend before he grows out of this particular pair of strides, but I'm not sure I'd be too keen on encouraging him to start accessorizing other trousers to meet his Disco needs.

This morning I found glitter on my loaf of bread. This has all gone too far now.

that is the curse of glitter. i keep finding glitter on the baby and she's a bit too young for craft sets just yet. I think it is probably from the christmas crackers we had this year, which covered everything with clouds of the stuff when pulled.

Put the disco trousers in the attic and bring them out at his 21st/wedding...

You're quite right, of course, but I have no idea where mine are!
