Ok, let’s talk about the outfit first. I got this dress off Sandra madam0wl a while ago, but sadly when it arrived it was too tight around the hips. I had a suspicion it would be when she gave me the measurements, but hope prevailed. But I guess it was a good thing, because it fits now, just about. It would probably still look better on a straighter shaped person, but what can you do? And it is an ace dress with the asymmetrical buttons and the anchor. I wish I had a close up of that actually!
And this outfit did inspire the strangest ever chat up line: You look like robin out of batman and robin. Yes, really. A very very drunk and man in his early 20s. He seemed nice though and when I asked him whether that was meant to be a compliment he went into an hilarious rant about how robin is much better than batman and some kind of ninja style master of all martial arts. And then admitted he’d just see the green on my arms and panicked!
This all happened in York by the way, where I was for a girly 30th birthday weekend. We were staying in a lovely cottage that used to be a cricket pavillion and has a cricket pitch in the back. The boundary was about two metres away from our back wall! No games that day though, it was incredibly rainy and the river was already overflowing before we even arrived. And it appears I’m breaking my no personal pictures of anyone but Dave for a slightly blury picture of the girls, and I didn’t even ask them for their permission. I just feel inadequate about my lack of photo taking, I’ve got so used to having these really long posts!
