Of course it wouldn't be complete without a story. Mike bought a new suit when we were in Florida. The store put it in a suit bag which we transferred into the suitcase unopened, then into the wardrobe when we got home. The same, well-travelled suit bag was then carted up to the Lake District.
We arrived at the church in all our finery. Mike turned around.
Yep, it's the security tag that the store had forgotten to remove when we paid - the sort of tag that squirts ink all over you if you try and remove it. Heaven knows how we walked out of the store in Florida without setting off all the security alarms. So there was nothing for it but for him to wear it. Never in his life has his rear end got so much attention, never in his life have so many people sidled up to him and whispered in his ear 'excuse me, did you know......' Never in his life has he been the butt of so much good humoured teasing - or have so many young ladies patting his butt - I think he really enjoyed it :)
Back to a crafty post tomorrow, but I hope you enjoyed this peek at my fabulous weekend
