We are buying some sweaters to our daughter in NL.
The method recommended by her is the following: I take a photo of her in each piece and then on the basis of the pics she takes the decision.
I pop the question: what if she just takes a look directly in the mirror?
From her look I conclude it was the Ultimate Evidence of Misunderstandings cross Generations.
I say a quiet ‘sorry’ and back out of the changing room with my eyes downcast.
One evening I am watching TV with the children, snuggling together on the sofa.
