Hats


Yesterday my friend KJ wrote a blog about HRH Queen Elizabeth 11. It was more about her hats really and how OTT they are. Actually what he said was:
"
but I do love her hats. No one wears a weirder hat than Queen Elizabeth II. She is the personification of a fashion faux pas, truly a mad hatter in the strictest sense, and yet, no one dares say to her, "Uh, your Majesty, it's about your hats ..."

Mmmmmm................the news is that ladies in England wear hats to formal occasions - weddings, baptisms, funerals, memorial services, Ascot, Cheltenham, Henley...............any self respecting woman would not be seen dead at any of these events sans hat!

So I said that I wore a hat last Mothers Day. My daughter knowing that I'm a hat lover (the bigger the better - ostentatious - moi??) gave me one and made me promise to wear it to the family Mother's Day Lunch. I could not refuse.
Forget the face - here's the hat!




Going back to the Queen, she's having to make some changes in her life. As a result of austere measures now in place under the new government (Conservatives sold out to Liberal Democrats) she is having to change her job. She's going from this:

A Moment in the Sun

I'm not really a football fan. I always say that until it gets really exciting - towards the end!

However, I couldn't help but get caught up in the excitement this morning as I watched the Opening Ceremony of the World Cup in Johannesburg's Soccer City Stadium.

It was quite a spectacle which caused me to remark to my husband that after all that the people of South Africa have been through, they have endured and this magnificent show whether the country can afford it or not, was a triumph.

There was joy - pure unadulterated joy. The excitement that came into our living room via satellite was infectious. It brought tears to my eyes.

I also remarked that it seems to be that only through sport are people of different ethnic backgrounds brought together in unity.

I pray that the day will come when it doesn't take an event such as this to bring all nations to the point where people are not judged by the colour, creed or race.
