WHAT WILL I WEAR???? - Part 3

Our son's wedding is at the end of October, so for me the big question was

What will I wear?


Ok so I hope you read parts one & two  -  if not 
                                           click here for WHAT WILL I WEAR????
              and then on to 
                          WHAT WILL I WEAR???? - Part two  and then head back here again.


 ........ Fred (my husband) liked it too.
               "So are you getting it now?"  he asked.

"Do you think the kids will like it?" I ask.

"Of course they will" he replied.
          "How do you know?"  is my next question.
                    "They are bound to like it, it's lovely" he said.

The solution?

                          TAKE A PICTURE!

            and that's what we do, thank goodness for iPads and coffee shops with Wifi.

Fred took a picture of me standing in the changing room and we headed over to a nearby Costa Coffee (having taken the outfit off and left it behind the sales desk with a very understanding set of shop assistants).

Now you might wonder why I deliberately mention that we went to Costa Coffee.
The answer is because I am not fond of Starbucks and also Costa Coffee have the greatest lemon and poppyseed muffin which I just adore but have been missing out on since trying to lose weight. One of those muffins has as many calories as my full dinner would have.

So we get the coffee (and tea for Fred) and a muffin which Fred says we have to share so that it isn't too many calories for me - isn't he so considerate?  No really, I'm not being sarcastic here because Fred will tell you himself that he is not a muffin eater.

Then connected to Wifi we email the picture to both Linda (South Korea) and Jonathan (Leeds) and start messaging them to make sure they look at their email.

During the time it took to eat the muffin we had a group message conversation with both kids and they encouraged me to go back and buy the outfit.

            But  

"Do you think Daniel & Suzie will like it too?"  I ask

                                        "YES!" is the joint reply

So we head back and buy the outfit.

A few days later we are with Daniel getting the suits for the guys for the wedding and I show him the outfit, he likes it.  Later that evening I see Suzie and show her the picture and she likes it so all is well.

Or rather will be well when I go to the seamstress and get that little alteration done because (back to where we started) 

I am petite 

and the dress is regular fitting so I need the straps shortened.


So I have my outfit, and it won't clash with the bridesmaids.

                          And the wedding is 4 weeks exactly from today!


                      It wasn't such a hard task after all, sure it wasn't?
