Finally decided to just join in the picnic fun at Howick Historical Village on Jan 15 instead for booking for a dessert buffet (that would be fun but this should offer a nice range of things to do:)
So this is the timeframe to make the sheer frock as I am not wearing The Mina in the middle of summer!
So as it’s a public event I’m basically inviting anyone who can get there on that date 🙂
