Bit quiet on Bette on Toast, innit? So much so that people have actually been noticing, and enquiring why I haven't been uploading photographs of myself wearing clothes for their enjoyment. One of the chief complainers, as always, has been my curly-haired, strange-accented Goldilocks, Alexa, so when she travelled up from the capital last weekend to visit, I roped her into service as a Boring Outfit Photographer.
Our first stop of the weekend was a picnic in the park, followed by a mini alfresco concert by my school choir. Alexa took a lovely picture of me conducting the little mites, looking for all the world like somebody who knows about music, but it shan't be appearing on this blog, because I've done a child protection course, and one of the first things they teach you is don't put photos of the children in your care on The Internet. ;-)
This red dress is one of those amazingly versatile garments, that also always receives compliments from chums, colleagues and random passers-by. Here is my younger, chubbier self, pictured with Alexa, wearing it at our Graduation Ball.
I seem to have started talking about dresses as usual, but I would really prefer for this blog to be more of a diary of my life than a shrine to Boring Outfit Posts. So I will continue telling you about my splendid weekend.
After the park we built a wardrobe, and then got dressed up for the evening, and took some photos on my steps while waiting for the taxi.
You will note that the girls both look elegant and lovely, while I look like I'm dressed for pub golf. This is because I was dressed for pub golf, being terribly busy and popular and having to be in two places at once that night.
So while Alice and Alexa sipped cocktails in Pleased To Meet You, my teacher friends and I drank alcopops and got thrown out of Wetherspoons for having too much fun with a plastic golf set.
On Sunday we went for our lunch at a hipster Ouseburn cafe. I was a cowgirl that day, and cowgirls like yellow walls.
After a bit of shopping and some very rushed cake, Alice and I plonked Alexa on a train and went to our respective rehearsals.
I am curently having a similarly wonderful weekend this week, so maybe there will be another summery diary post coming up soon!
