Those four words can instill great dread into the hearts of many parents. As can World Book Day. It used to with me years ago.
I love the idea of World Book Day and any similar type of days that promote books. However, the added pressure of having to find a suitable dressing up costume can be quite stressful.
When O was at primary school, I was always left scratching my head. Without the wonders of the Internet to help fire my enthusiasm and inspiration, it was tough. We ended up with a couple of costumes that came from shops and my mum made us a couple of things as she is a marvel with a sewing machine. But whenever those words were mentioned I always had a feeling of dread.
