Dressed for a tea party


On Saturday Isla and I went to Olive&Em’s first tea party and had a lovely time, check out my blog on our afternoon here

For the tea party I wore River Island trousers, Mum’s kimono blouse from M&S and cardigan from Hobbs. Talking of Mum here’s some more of her diary entries….

April 20th….. Another warm, sunny day! Went into Manchester to meet Sue G. Had lunch at Harvey Nicks – brill! Wore black linen trousers, black and white gingham top, black patent ‘ballet’ shoes and pink ‘Macy’s’ bag. Made first purchase on my M&S card – pink and black showerproof jacket with hood. Quite jolly and useful, I hope as it packs away. A sort of up-dated version of the trusty ‘Pacamac’.

April 21st….. Maundy Thursday. Went up to Dobcross Garden Centre with Liz. Warm and sunny so wore black and white gingham trousers and black top edged with gingham. Took black cardi but didn’t need it. Amazing weather!

April 27th….. After a chilly and windy day yesterday, with a hint of rain, it was back to sunshine today. Christine Oates and I went over to Turf Lane Garden Centre for tea and cake (me), coffee and a scone (Christine). I wore jeans (blue), converse trainers, pale pink cotton blouse. Took my pink padded coat but didn’t need it. Saw Eileen and Helen at garden centre café. Collected Doug from his art class later. A very nice afternoon out, after a difficult few days over Easter.

1st May….. Weather still dry and sunny, but spoiled by a sharp north east wind. Liz called for me about 11am and we went up to the Delph Farm Shop and Café. It was quite nice and the shop bears further inspection. I wore blue jeans, pink Artigiano t-shirt, Converse trainers and pink jacket from pink suit. After our snack and look round shop we went down to B&Q. I bought new Yankee Candle for bathroom and three birthday cards.

2nd May….. Bank Holiday. Vicky, Isla and I went to Dunham Massey. Nasty east wind still around but otherwise sunny and dry. Wore navy linen trousers, navy and white stripe three quarter sleeved t-shirt, and blue ‘swing’ jacket. Red bag and boat shoes. Hair a mess because of wind!

4th May….. Lunch at Dobcross Garden Centre with Chris P. Had walk round Uppermill first. No cold wind – lovely hot day with wall to wall sunshine. Wore navy linen trousers and striped top again. Took red fleece jacket just in case but didn’t really need it. Red bag and shoes.
