Busy, busy, busy day ahead today, so just thought I'd download a funny family photograph. Perhaps taken in October 1952 - don't be fooled by the winter coats, we're talking Scotland here!
It must have been a real treat for women to have the luxury of fabric to be frivolous with, after the restraints of wartime and clothes coupons. Big cuffs and full skirts couldn't have been contemplated just a few years previously. And don't you just love the little girl looking in the shop window in the background!
In the foreground we have Boudicca, fearsome warrior leader of the Iceni tribe, gripping her chariot.
Are my eyes narrowed in steely determination, or did mummy just tie my bonnet too tight?!
