Meriel was growing so fast it seemed like every couple of months she needed new clothes, but Jack didn’t mind; he loved buying things for his little girl, the two of them wandering through the St. David’s Shopping centre, looking through rails of pretty outfits.
“What about these!” Jack held up the cutest little socks he’d ever seen, rainbow colours and trimmed with lace.
“Don’t get those, daddy.”
“I don’t like the frills.”
“You don’t?” Jack was surprised. “But frilly things are pretty!”
“Not when I have to wear them. They itch!”
Jack sighed, disappointed. “Okay, no lace.”
