My little bit of this big World

Friday 2 August 2013

Posh hats and dresses

My posh new hat, both of us ready for our afternoon out.
 We had an invite to a garden party
 The setting was wonderful, this old house and it's large garden, in the naval base at Portsmouth, it's in the heart of the dockyard, with the city wrapped around it.
 Dainty cut sandwiches, no crust and tea, loads of posh frocks and uniforms. It was warm and sunny with a nice breeze, we sat under an umbrella with a good view of the lawn.
 We had 4 items to watch
 Two being cadets from our area, a band and a marching display, 
both did well
 The Royal marines band were really good, I love to listen to military bands, we were all tapping our toes. The final item was a historic gym display, really good to watch.
Both Kev and I enjoyed the afternoon, we felt lucky to have been invited, and once I saw the Vice Admiral, who hosted the afternoon, I realised he was in our office on Monday and we had been chatting and laughing together. Work, not only is it interesting but it is allowing me to meet and mix with all sorts of people.

I do hope you have a good weekend, ours has started really well.


  1. What a grand occasion.

    I LOVE military band music also . . guess I got smothered in John Philip Sousa marches when I played in band in school . . and the beats never left me.

  2. A wonderful experience, how lovely.

  3. This is such a lovely photo of the both of you. Hope you had a wonderful time!
    Many hugs and kisses,
