I am feeling pretty fine and dandy today. What do you think of my new hat?
I have been on the look out for a floppy-brimmed 1970s hat for ages, and found this one at Chesterfield flea market yesterday. I think if you wait long enough, you will find everything at Chesterfield flea market. Truly, all human life and its ephemera are there.
I have been very busy with school PTA stuff, we have a coffee morning in a fortnight, and end of term discos for the kids to organise. As with all tasks like this, it sounds easy and straightforward enough, but there is so much to do, and not always enough volunteers... I like doing it though, gives me a legitimate excuse not to do housework.
1970s felt hat and 1960s dress (flea market), boots (Ebay), denim jacket and bangle (charity shops), tan bag (Xmas swap gift from Alex)
I have a day of fun tomorrow. My friend Patsy and her daughter are coming to visit, there is a jumble sale locally in the morning, and then we plan to enlarge Patsy's wardrobe with some charity shop bargains. There happens to be a Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair in Sheffield tomorrow too, but we might not get to that. Tea is planned at a wonderful Turkish grill restaurant called Zeugmas.
All this activity will doubtless be accompanied by excessive laughter and much piss-taking. I will take my camera, almost as though I were a proper blogger.
Busy busy busy! But as I proceed jumble-home-charity shop-coffee shop-charity shop-restaurant, I will not stop being dandy or lower myself, forgetting all my standards.
Thank you for the reminder, Adam.
Have a great weekend, remember that ridicule is nothing to be scared of!
