We went to a wedding on Saturday night, it was lovely! Really chilled and handmade and fun! and a choreographed first dance with three lifts!
I have a feeling that post Royal wedding Princess Beatrice ludicrousness fascinators or at least big dramatic fascinators are going to go out of fashion, I’m sure they only started becoming commonplace a few years ago and before that it was hats or nothing at wedding, so maybe we’ll go back to that. So I seized my chance to wear my big one (I only have two, the other one is the peacock feather headband) while its still acceptable. I’d only worn it once before to a wedding back in 2008, and once to a hat party. In the end it turned out not to be a hugely dressy wedding and I spotted only three other people weaing fascinators, and much less shouty ones than this, so when I had to go to the car about an hour into the reception, I unceremoniously ditched it. We’ll see whether fascinators will stay a done thing or not I suppose.
In personal news, Dave got a job yesterday! It’s temping, so the money’s not great, but it’s a professional level job (policy officer), so it’ll look good on the CV. And its full time and long term. And it’s in the same building as me! I was so relieved when I found out, I felt quite sick and full of adrenaline! Now it’s like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders! He starts Thursday.
