I took this photo in Sacramento; in the gardens near the State Capital.
It's been a busy few days! On Friday night Phil and I did some more wedding planning and I practised using our new flash. I'm getting more nervous by the day - what if I screw up? I'll never forgive myself!
Saturday we went shopoing for wedding outfits. Sian and Phil are sorted, Kate needed trousers, footwear and a jacket and I needed a suit. At first it was a disaster....M&S was having a sale, was in a real muddle and if I found a jacket that fir i couldn't find the matching trousers in my size! The changing rooms were hot and overcrowded as well as badly lit. I saw myself in my underwear which reduced me to tears LOL.
We headed for Debenhams with me feeling very dispirited but phew, once in there all was much better. I found several lovely jackets complete with trousers and nearby sutitable blouses to try with them. Changing rooms were LARGE, well-lit and COOL. Staff helpful - result: i got a nice suit and blouse. Kate got lovely black trousers and a black jaclet plus boots - she looks gorgeous and SO grown up! So that's one worry over!
In the evening we visited the Wildcat; watched the rugby and ate pizza and a nice time was had by all. This morning we attended a christening; the afternoon was gardening and laundry. Phil starts his commission tomorrow and will be away most of the week although we are having lunch tomorrow!
