I have had my first serious attempt to try on outfits for TSH's daughter's wedding. I didn't find 'the one' but I spoke to a boutique owner who said she favoured 'eccentric' clothes. She is very stylish but am I ready for 'eccentric'? But 'eccentric' is perhaps more me than pastel lace. She said she is waiting for an outfit that would be ideal for me - navy and a long skirt. Could be OK.
We now have the next three weeks worth of work available so I can get on with things. I am really enjoying studying grammar and the way the classic models (noun, verb etc) are inadequate and we need something more flexible and expressive, linked to meaning.
