On Monday my granddaughter has her school Prom, in my days these Prom things were only celebrated by Americans, but they have now slipped into British culture. She ordered an evening gown from the internet, but on Friday was informed they were unable to deliver it on time. It came from China (that's another story where I feel they are using "slave" labour) and had been addressed incorrectly. So Dot comes to the rescue, and with granddad's money makes a mercy dash to a not so nearby boutique to buy her a new dress which cost me the price of four pairs of jeans. Don't begrudge a penny of it, as she has worked hard this term and always appreciates any help we give. I also noticed that on her school's Twitter page, someone had used one of my GIFs, so I left a message saying thank-you and who I was

The dress looks great! They have to wear uniforms in school? There are some schools here that do that, but most do not. I'd prefer to allow kids to be themselves rather than making them all look the same.
In her heels she was taller than me, and I'm just short of 6 foot
Grandparents to the rescue. So nice!
I thought she was just a little kid? Many years ago here they didn't have proms until high school and it was the Senior Prom.
