Because July 7th is Roman Day at school, well, it is for The Boy.
And no, that isn’t “just” a sheet. Although it was a sheet. But it is now an authentic Roman Toga shape, according to Wikihow anyway. And it’s almost the right dimensions for him (according to the overly complicated instructions). Not quite, cos the sheet was a little too small, but then an 8 year old at school is probably better not having a toga that almost reaches the floor. So, I deciphered instructions, measured, calculated, cut and hemmed.
Meanwhile The Man made the “laurel” leaf crown and the Boy himself made his Bulla (an amulet worn round the neck to ward off evil spirits).
