Today, the weather was foul.

MWNN took Ron for a walk/ball chase so I donned my red hat, purple jumper and black jeans and headed in the opposite direction in a blur of purple and red. Much tea with toasted teacackes was consumed, gossip news exchanged and dates of future events noted in diaries. The tea was rounded off with the ceremony at which all red hatters were 'tarred and feathered'. This consisted of our Chapter Queen formally welcoming us, dubbing us, by feather, in our Red Hat name - to which we responded 'Ta'. Then each picked a gift from the basket; mine was a lovely necklace with red wooden beads.

'Twas a good day.
