The Pink Ladies are a local Breast Cancer Support group, and I finally managed to attend another monthly meeting. What with hospital appointments, treatments, and finally our long awaited holiday in Australia, it is several months since I’ve managed to get there. Wear something fun, I was told. Mmm, I wouldn’t have thought anything in my wardrobe would be considered “fun”. Then I had a brainwave – and climbed the pull down ladder into the loft to retrieve a very special object, which certainly could be considered funny. My Happy Birthday hat!
Is that fun enough, do you think? My hat looks like a birthday cake with big fat candles stuck in the top. But the candles are a bit saggy and don’t stand up straight. Never mind, it might make someone laugh. And my birthday is coming up in the long (Labour) weekend, so it’s only right that I should give my hat an outing.
Everything is always very nicely done at the Pink Ladies meetings, everything beautifully decorated, and shades of pink everywhere. Some of the other ladies had dressed up too, I noticed pink flannel pyjamas, shocking pink tights, a pink chenille dressing gown, and various floral head pieces. I didn’t win the raffle, but my partner and I won a small prize for the quiz. And I received a little birthday gift with the other October birthday girls. And just look at that beautifully decorated birthday cake. I had a lovely morning meeting up with the ladies.
