I am a proper grown-up lady!

I have a hat box!
With a hat in it!

I went shopping this morning for my wedding accessories. Have I mentioned that shoe shopping is one of my least favourite things in the world? Being blessed with an extra toe means all shoes look horrid on me and it's difficult to get them to fit. I found some but, strangely enough, when I put them on at home the right shoe is tighter than the left, which is the wrong way around.

Then I had my hair cut and coloured so I can 'grow into it' before the wedding. So it's all falling into place. Including my boobs into my new wedding bra. (And matching pants. Plus new exercise bra and matching pants. I sang to myself as she was telling me the total cost so I wouldn't have to know.)

My hat's not as big as that box might suggest, by the way. But it's my first ever hat - excluding fluffy ones with bobbles on - and I had to ask someone how to put it on. Princesses Bea and Eugenie will have nothing on me ...

I am very impressed by the hat box. I have never bought a proper hat, perhaps because I have never really had an occasion to buy one.

It's my first and probably last too, RET.

I have never had a hat either .. not for my son's wedding either .. I wore a Fascinator .. Love them. Did you not wear a hat to your two other weddings ... ?? I suppose everything is being kept underwraps until the big day.

Have you really go an extra toe, or is that a joke?? If you have, have you never considered having it removed .. Just a question :-)
