Well what do you know. I go out shopping on my own after visiting friends and happen to end up finding 2 rather pretty dresses that DD may like for the next party she goes to. Pick her up later from her drama class - she opens the bag and discounts one dress as her friend has it and the other she does not like.
She tries the one she does not like on when she gets home and guess what? Loves it - not to self: don't take DD shopping next time. Go alone it is certainly more productive!
Not a bad day then..
