Yesterday (while I was working - boooo!) Graham took Dulcie to her first gig. Apparently she had a great time, dancing and clapping non-stop before flaking out and falling asleep through the last few numbers. We managed to borrow these ear defenders for the day, but I think we might get her a pair of her own for future use, since she had such a good time. One of Graham's friends gave them a lift to the venue and I think the car journey was probably just as exciting as the rest of the day! Dulcie was full of news when I got home from work, which was lovely.
And here she is (post-nap, I think) hanging out with the drummer from the band. He's actually an old friend of Graham's, we don't just hand her over to any random man with a pint really!
I'd better get going. I've got a day's annual leave today. I booked it ages ago for no particular reason and then forgot all about it until a few days ago. I'm having a really good day so far, helped in no small part by the blue skies and sunshine. I dropped Dulcie off at nursery a bit later than usual and then headed straight into town to look for pyjamas since Dulcie has suddenly out-grown all her sleepy suits. I hate looking for clothes etc. for myself, but choosing bits and pieces for Dulcie is fun, fun, fun. While I was in town, I paid a visit to Niche Optical Tailor and chose a new pair of glasses for myself. I'm so excited about this as I have been trying and failing to find new frames for a year or so thanks to my incredibly wide head. No, really. You might remember Niche sorted me out with my last frames (over three years ago, I think - wowsers) after much fruitless searching elsewhere, and the service today was just as good again. I must have tried on about 50 pairs. At one point the young man who was helping me said, "What time do you need to pick your wee girl up?" and I replied, "Don't worry, not for another six hours or so." He really did look worried, the poor boy! In the end I was pretty decisive (by my usual standards!) and I'm really happy with the frames I chose. They'll be ready within the week and I can't wait! I'm getting my hair cut today too. I'll be all neat and tidy and shiny and new in time for the springing of spring :)
P.S. Would you belive Graham has a background in photography? No, me neither! Ha!
