Have searched absolutely everywhere...please help me!

Me too! Only a size 5-6, can't find any anywhere!

8oreighty Thu 20-Aug-09 19:46:48

I think I'd buy a 5-6 if could even find's mad. If anyone stocks them they are sold out. Considering buying manky ones on ebay?!

I got dark blue ones aged 4 from M&S - they might have black?

8oreighty Thu 20-Aug-09 19:49:10

thanks, but nope, just blue...

8oreighty Thu 20-Aug-09 19:51:29

mothercare have them but out of stock.

is it alright to get cycle shorts with a white stripe down the side? I have no idea what is acceptable, first time at it. The list just says black shorts...?

I've got that sort of cycle shorts - assuming it'll be OK. Sainsburys had them for a few quid

Boy or girls ? i have some girls black shorts from next that are like new, my DD only used them for one term and then moved schools and needed blue!

8oreighty Fri 21-Aug-09 09:38:35

I have a twins, boy and a girl, so need both...3cute, really? thanks so much...are they cotton? sorry to be cheeky! How much would you want for them? I am on paypal

3cutedarlings Fri 21-Aug-09 09:45:55

Yes they are a cotton/poly mix, just the normal girls next style short shorts IYSWIM. They are a very small slim fit, as my DD1 is a skinny mini smile

I dont want anything for them they will not cost much to post. Do you have an email address i can contact you on as i dont really want to put mine on here and i dont have CAT.

if you want cotton shorts try getting rugby shorts - and since lots of minis play shouldn't be too hard to find online

abbierhodes Sun 23-Aug-09 23:06:58

I got some lovely ones at BHS!

80reighty do you still want boys' ones - my DS2 (age 6) has decided he has to have nylonny footie shorts for school <sigh> have agreed to this, so his cotton M&S PE shorts are going begging - size 4-5 (he's not v big) - yours if you want em.

Let me know if so and I'll email you.

Bear in mind that when they see the other boys wearing football type shorts they will want them too - so don't hunt too hard or spend too much on cotton ones. This is The Voice of Experience speaking!

John Lewis - £2 a pair - black or white.

seeker, not for the first time, I suspect that you are in fact me! grin

clary - do you sometimes feel you are piscesmoon too? Maybe we're triplets separated at birth? We would have to be time lapse triplets because I'm so old........

Clary Wed 26-Aug-09 00:24:16

yy piscesmoon as well. We are triplets!

(I'm very old as well btw)

piscesmoon Fri 28-Aug-09 08:37:04

I'm very old too-perhaps that confirms it!!
