Wearing something funny for money

Now I do realise that many people who see my ramblings have no idea what I look like from the shoulders down. Self portraits are normally head and shoulders, right?  ! I look a very ordinary kind of a gal, right? Very conservative in my dress.  So when we were told to wear something red for Red Nose Day nobody was really expecting me to turn up for work with these on my legs

and before anyone asks, no they weren't something I usually wear.  Or are they?  You'll never know.  do I normally look a bit like Alice in Wonderland?  Curiouser and curiouser.
 
But they lead me on quite nicely to my next news.  My daughter likes to arrange special outings instead of presents (she excelled herself one Christmas when she bought me tickets to go and see George Michael in concert!) so her birthday gift to me is a trip up to London tomorrow to go with her to a Mad Hatter's Tea Party.  How exciting!  We're going to The Sanderson Hotel please do check out the link and click on the info as it sounds amazing.  I have already warned her that I am going to be the most embarrassing person in there by photographing non stop.  Just so long as I don't wear my stripey socks ....

just checked out the link to the tea party, the food sounds great, look forward to seeing the pictures, a little disappointed that there is no fancy dress allowed, where is the fun in that?

Oh, I'm envious, that sounds such fun!! Fancy dress would have made it all the more spectacular, but the setting sounds wonderful. Have a great time and do tell us all about it!

Love your tights and what a wonderful idea - going to a Mad Hatter's Tea Party! I too think it's a shame about the fancy dress. Looking forward to seeing the photos.
