      Re: August Army Thread 2019

      Just back from the big smoke with a coat hanger bridge with Mum for an appointment. Oh God but I am glad I don't live there any more. It was an enjoyable day but like going on manouvres with a low vision person. I'm knackered.

      A holiday Mary!!! What fabulous things are you going ot do with your time?

      I love the outfit JC. Very elegant...and most importantly it will be comfortable too.

      Massively looking forward to the weekend here. I believe that we will begin with a sleep in, move seemlessly to bucket of coffee, on to the salon for a trim and gossip and thence to the garden for a potter....Ahhh.
      If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

      Morning,
      Of course after being told that the bride's mother has to have the biggest hat.........I picked this up yesterday



      This time next week I'll be picking up abandoned cuff-links , stopped being mother-of- the-groomzilla and getting in the loft to get the suitcases out for a holiday in Scotland.

      Getting the real hat today and a spot of lunch in Kelso with a pal, Mr JC and Bess.
      It could be worse, I could be filing.

      Wave from another salon bridge..except this wig takes about 2.5-3 hours.. fecking highlights, if I could turn back time, I'd tell my 16 year old self that mousey is fabulous (I probably wouldn't actually).
      @JackieClaire, I'm getting excited for you! It's never just the day, but the entire build up, planning, stress, relief and that's just about finding the right shoes

      Off down the country next week, bikes and a little boat on the Shannon (it's not a sleeper, just for day cruising).
      Then I've no plans for the next 3 weeks, I was just sick of summer juggling. Hang out with the kids, sleep in. Cook. Paint (walls) Declutter. Catch up. Live on nothing because I'm not being paid!!

      Evening and morning Bridgeeee...........left couple of croissants and cheese in the fridge for your brekkie.

      The hat is just beyond gorgeous. I've never had anything made especially for me and I've got a whopping big hatbox. I feel proper posh. Met another mother of the groom on the shop and she's a tad stressed. She's been mother of the bride and reckons M of G is more stressful. We are now BFF.

      @IamMary........do my colour at home these days(I've become one of the faux blonde brigade) and then go to the hairdresser for the cutting. Used to spend days in the hairdresser's getting highlights/low-lights when the kids where little ( 3 hours plus to myself) then we ran out of money. They needed stuff like shoes and school uniforms and proper food. No consideration the pair of them.

      Too many smartpoints in croissant and cheese, mother JC. Wouldn't be able to eat for the next week but thanks anyway. I've left that there for skinnies like you along with a Tasmanian winter apple. Pink Lady. Yum.

      I do the box colour thing too. I started it because I just could not sit still for 4 hours while they buggarised around up there and wasted my weekend. So I put it on and vacuum or do something useful. Then I put the bucks toward plants. When I went in yesterday they looked at my hair aghast and said 'Well Bridge we'll start by putting some colour correcting seaweedrareplantcharcoalmudfruitoil dirt from the red sea serum in to get the BRASINESS out'. Right-O I said. But just a inch off thanks. Right-O she says and takes 3 off. Then I was anoited with things out of funny shaped bottles by the high priestess of salon to 'mend split ends' and 'soften the collagen' and such and charged an arm and a leg for the pleasure. No wonder I only go once a year.

      Spending the day with the niece who is playing in the dogs' water as we speak.

      Morning,
      @byebyebridgetjones........I think I've used that hairdresser..........was a while back. The dreaded words 'do you want any products on your hair' seem to ring a bell. I was just a wee naive mother and thought they were free. They saw me coming.
      It was so long ago I had to use a cheque book........it cost so much that I didn't fill the stub in so Mr JC didn't find out I'd more or less spent the mortgage money.
      I'll pop a yoghurt and some fruit in the fridge for brekkie this morning.

      @IamMary.........I hope they knock a few euros off for using your child labour.
      This is an order make sure this month you find time for you..........in fact lots of time.

      Honestly, I'll try to get a photo to you all. I've just got to fathom out how.

      Rightio Lidl here I come.

      Afternoon all. @JackieClaire - exciting times ahead I'd say you will look amazing. I've discovered at the last 2 weddings that a well made hat makes an outfit ....
      I was at a wedding yesterday in a dress from M&S sale - but the hat was hired from a proper milner - the whole thing just worked & I got LOADS of compliments.

      You can PM us with the photos...

      Your right there Satz, a simple dress and a statement hat, which can also be simple. I borrowed a really fancy fascinator for a wedding a few years ago and I felt like royalty!

      I bet you were a 'ride' (dublin slang for a hot chick) coming out of there @byebyebridgetjones, seaweedrareplantcharcoalmudfruitoil does that.

      Def going to slow down this month @JackieClaire. One of the kittens broke its leg today (we think), he jumped out of the window upstairs (2nd time this week). Hes nuts. His brother wouldnt dream of that. Waiting for the Vet to pop over. No idea how this will pan out now with out trip the day after tomorrow.
