If You Want To Get Ahead, Get A Hat!

Hi,

.

So it’s another Monday for me today.

Bah!

.

There was amazing weather change here on Sunday.

First there was absolutely torrential rain for ages, followed by terrific thunder, with brooding dark skies that seemed to be so low that you could have stretched your hand up and touched them.

I was thankful for it really, as it should help raise the  low water levels in the rivers and help stop any more forest fires from starting.

.

Because of that storm, Big H and I did not get to do very much yesterday, except read books, talk on the phone, eat lots of nice snacks, and consume a great deal of whiskey and ice cold beer.

It was very enjoyable and totally chilled out.

.

Of course that does not mean that absolutely everything is perfect in my world.

Do you remember me telling you that, as my regime of taking Pil-Food to restore my hair to it’s one time thickness was not working, I had subsequently decided to begin taking a much applauded supplement called Florisene.

.

Well, I said I would let you know my opinion of it’s efficacy, but I don’t think that I shall actually be able to do that after all.

It seems that the iron content of the tablets does not agree with me.

Unfortunately it has made me so bloody constipated that I am permanently going around feeling as if I am smuggling a colossally huge carrot in an uncomfortable place….a bit like Steve McQueen in the film Papillon, where he was a prisoner of the French authorities on the infamous penal colony of French Guiana.

It is dreadful!

.

I stopped taking the supplement many days ago, but the situation is still hard to cope with.  (ha-ha)

.

So there you have it.

I shall just have to eat lots of sardines and hope for the best hair-wise, and bugger spending our hard-earned on all of these various supplements.

I mean let’s face it, it could definitely be worse, sometimes you just have to accept these degenerating physical aspects of yourself and get over it.

And, as last resort for we rapidly balding ladies, there are always hats!!!!

.

Speaking of headgear….I have read reports that Princess Beatrice and her sister Princess Eugenie are thought to be entirely unrepentant about their choice of hats for the Royal Wedding.

It is thought that they are actually commissioning more hats from the inventive and equally unrepentant designer Philip Treacy, the man whose last creation for Beatrice took on a separate life of it’s own.

.

If this information is correct then we are going to be very interested to see the unveiling of the next hats, which are to be revealed at the wedding of their cousin Zara Phillips in July this year.

She is marrying Mike Tindall, who is most probably not going to wear anything from Philip Treacy.

.

It is also being said that Princess Anne is favouring a chapeau from the same designer, as part of her own wedding outfit.

It should be good fun hat spotting on the day!

.

So, that’s all for now folks, from a damp UK.

J,x.

*By the way, Steve was not smuggling an enormous carrot in that wonderful film, but the unfortunate prisoners had to conceal ‘chargers where the sun don’t shine,’ in order to hide their valuables!

It was a fabulous film too.
