Why I won't be going to Fashion Night Out

I wrote a Fashion Night Out piece for an on-line 'zine a few months ago and I was really looking forward to it. It was such fun last year why would I not want to schlep around the West End again in search of champagne and canapes. My Liberty Manolo Blahnik pop up shop invite sits at the top of the pile and I really did intend to go for a Chanel manicure in a new limited edition Khaki.However a year on my carefree nature seems a world away. This is the first week of petit garcon going to school. Yes my little baby is now a young school boy! Last week I still thought I'd be hotfooting it out to Liberty, I even began to make arrangements 'to meet'. Then the BBC brought Mad Men forward and so that hits the HD screen at 10pm. I stilled continued to think I'd rush back to sit down and view the new series by 10pm, I couldn't bare not to wait any longer.

But after only two days of taking him to school I cannot bear to leave him even to the capable hands of Mr MDS. I'm too focused on him being completely settled and a proper home from school routine until bed at 7pm.





Forgive me Mr Blahnik and the rest I couldn't possibly leave such a bundle of joy. I'm sure you won't miss me but I would be missing my little boy.

  5. He is hugely cute in his shorts. Much better to stay at home and give him cuddles than eat canapes!

  17. I think you made a good decision! :) There will be more Fashion Nights Out and other events, but this is one and only year he starts school! It's so great to see a mum so committed! : ) And it's not hard to see why- he's just the cutest, with his little uniform! :) I think British school kids are even cuter than others because they have a little uniforms and it's just makes them look so adult :) (where I grew up we didn't have uniforms, hence everyday's question of what to wear to not be laughed at- school age is too early to start with this dilemma!
