As an English gal, It would be terribly remiss of me not to discuss the weather.
It is raining, it hasn't stopped raining.
It poses some sartorial conundrums, what to wear on ones feet?, even i have to admit that it is too wet for flip flops. A ballet pump? ill defence against the puddles, Uggs? The route i have taken, not brilliant in the rain. Wellington boots? (as long as they aren't green or floral) i think this is the safest route, if only i knew where they were.
Then there is the umbrella etiquette. Given that this an Ye Olde Town, the narrow passageways are ill-equipped for 2 umbrellas to pass one another without a spot of jiggery, apology, and general awkwardness. Should you raise or lower your umbrella?
I think the answer may be a hat and a jar of marmalade, a recycled jar of course.
Despite all this my morning has been blessed with a present from one of my brides. The badges will be worn with pride, thank you xx
Also i bought this book yesterday.
