SHOE SHOPPING, AMONG OTHER THINGS

First up for today, I have a few more photos from yesterday:


 ABOVE: That back hedge just needs to grow about a metre higher, then we will have some privacy from those neighbours.
On our other boundaries the hedges are higher.



 ABOVE:  Dante loves this, Archer, not so much.


 ABOVE:  This is Chris, Bex's brother.  He's a nice guy.  


 ABOVE:  Wee Archer chillaxing on Griffin.  I doubt 'chillaxing' is a bona fide word, but too bad.


 ABOVE:  Awwwww.... too cute.



 ABOVE:  Dante was upset because I wouldn't let him dig in the lawn with his TINY spoon!


 ABOVE: So Grandma (that would be me), gave him the garden trowel and let him dig in the unplanted end of this garden.
He was thrilled and dug a great big hole.

NOW.... I am finally allowed to talk about the social event coming up... the reason I had to buy a new dress...

STEVE AND BEX ARE GETTING MARRIED IN A FEW WEEKS.  

We are thrilled to bits of course.
Bex decided to crochet herself a lovely shrug to wear over her dress...


ABOVE: It is light and very soft.  She's a clever tart!

So... it's all very exciting.  Bex is even making her own flower bouquet... she's making ribbon roses!  I have seen it as she's been making it, and it is going to be gorgeous.

Right, back to today.
Instead of going to Patchwork, today I am going into town to find some shoes to wear to the wedding.
I'm going to pick Lacy up as well, so she can get outta the house.

ONWARD...

1.19 pm:  I have had the most awesome shopping expedition today!
The very first shop I looked in for shoes, and Lacy spotted the PERFECT matching shoes for my wedding outfit!


 ABOVE:  The dress and floaty top that I'm wearing over it.

ABOVE: THE SHOES... Not only are they the right colour, but even the pattern matches the dress!!!
Meant to be obviously.  I am just so happy to have found the perfect outfit for the wedding.

Originally I hadn't planned on buying anything new, and just wear some tights and a nice top.  But then I was told I had to get something NICE, as I am the 'Mother of The Groom'.  

So glad I listened.  

After the shoes shopping, we went to Chartwell Square for a quick lunch, then I took Lacy back to her flat, and then I came home.

It's getting warmer again... so I stripped off me winter clothes and am now in a lovely summer maxi dress.  

10.59 PM:  Well it's been an awesome day...but now it's time to head off to bed after, a cosy evening indoors.
