Number two decided to rock an H&M grey suit, hawaiian shirt and one of his dad's ties (which he had picked out as a christmas present a year or two ago). We went round for pre-drinks to one of his friends' place (alcohol for the parents, thank you very much) and saw a dozen of the wee glamorous creatures. They don't wear dinner suits or formal gear by and large, just suits, although one young man looked very spiffing in a three piece with waistcoat and pocket chain. The girls were mostly in slimline full-length dresses and looked just lovely. Yes, he is much taller than his dad.
Number two had a great time, danced a lot then had an after party at another friends' house with a heated pool (!fancy!who are these people?) so they all had an unscheduled midnight swim. Today he's going into school to practice their performance for the final assembly tomorrow, which is followed by Pool Day, and then high school is finished except for the graduation next week.
