What another photo of my gardening boots! Well you can see they are very close to my heart! But why are these boots covered in glitter?
It all started with Frozen. My 3 year old granddaughter, who lives in Japan, loves the film and loves singing that song all the way through, complete with dramatic actions of throwing her cape and gloves across the room. So as any doting Granny should, I bought her a Frozen outfit from the Disney shop; I even got there as soon as they opened on the day the new batch of outfits came in. I didn’t want them to sell out.
However when I unwrapped the outfit, complete with unattachable cape (that is going to cause some problems!) the whole area was soon covered in multi-coloured glitter.
No, I didn’t unwrap it outside in my wellies!
That was my attempt to remove some of the aforementioned stuff before I became really unpopular with my lovely daughter-in-law!
After a good ten minutes of vigorous shaking and brushing outside, the boots were covered, the patio was covered and I was covered. Was the dress shedding any less glitter – you guessed it, NO!
What was the Disney store thinking of? I would guess that almost every household that contains a little girl under the age of ten (and maybe older) will be covered in glitter this Christmas; it will be on all our carpets, on all our clothes and faces and we will probably be eating it on our Christmas dinner! Oh well, I suppose it will add to the festive look. Thanks so much Disney!
