These days I only really do an outfit post when I’ve sewn or knitted something new. But not today! On Monday last week I got vguely dressed up because I had my citizenship ceremony. This is the end of my long and painful (well, extremly annoying and expensive) journey to becoming a British citizen. The ceremony was sort of hilarious, the councillor gave a speech which was lovely but also wen t on and on about Scotland and Edinburgh, but didn’t mention the UK once. I’m guessing he is an SNP guy, but actually I’m totally cool with that because all my positive feelings about wanting to do this are about my life here in Edinburgh, and my working for the Scottish Government, and all my negative feelings about being bullied into this because of Brexit and the utter incompetence of the negotiating team are directed at the UK.
The ceremony only got better from there though – they were finishing with the national anthem, which they were playing from a CD, but they didn’t know what number it was on said CD. So we got to listen to the intros to the Marsaillaise and the Deutschlandlied and one other before it was finally God Save the Queen. It was pretty hilarious!
Clotheswise, I’m wearing my nani iro burda 112, new oxblood tights from M&S, sainsburies boots, a vintage tooled leather bag from my swapping days on flick, gifted earrings and a vintage elephant brooch from I don’t know where. How was that for a retro outfit source description?
But I will finish with a picture of me dancing at Milo and Ellis who are dancing/pulling faces at me from the kitchen window.
