Now the weather has finally cheered up, we have been able to get out and play more often and the boys have loved it. Been able to play in the garden without our coats on, lapping up the sunshine whilst having fun riding around.
Boys are very rough though, I never knew how rough they actually would be until I had 2 of them. Throwing themselves around, jumping in the mud, rolling along the floor, all of which I don't mind, but, it does mean that their clothes can get ruined quickly.
Then we come to the age old battle of, do we buy nice clothes that will be more expensive and better quality, or cheap clothes which aren't as good quality but it doesn't really matter if they get ruined? I go for the first option...
I am a very frugal buyer and regularly search for outlet stores in the UK which sell designer brands but at a fraction of the cost. These shops usually sell the older season ranges, all still very much in style, still fab quality, but at around 70% off the retail price.
This way, we all get to wear nice quality clothing and because I haven't spent a fortune I don't have as much of a heart attack when one gets ripped of stained. It means that we can all, ride, scoot and roll to our hearts content without worrying.
I have loved having this good weather and cannot wait till summer. Getting to go out more, play at the beach, paddle in the sea, ride our bikes, play on the scooters, I cannot wait to get out and about.
