Chesterfield 1940s weekend seems a long time ago now, but I have been waiting for some photos to be ready before I did any blogging.
We were blessed with good weather again - it was lovely and sunny and not as cold as last year, although February is early in the year for an event of this kind. I met with Tony and Kevin who both took some lovely photos of me, and it was great to catch up with them again after the long break in events over the winter.
I had actually meant to get round and see some other people too, but I didn't choose to go into the theatre this year - the shopping was pretty good last year and I wanted to stay away from the temptation of spending any money! (Sorry to those people I didn't see though, I will try to catch up with you later in the year.
I also spoke briefly with a lady who says she reads my blog. I was an awkward mess unfortunately, but this is the first time I've met anyone who reads my blog who I didn't already know. It sort of reminded me that 'real' people actually do read what I'm writing, which is great but also kind of scary. (Hello if you're reading, I'm sorry I panicked!).
The shark above is on the outside wall of a bar (I think) that I found near the church when I was wandering round.
Here is a full length shot of what I wore so I don't feel like I am neglecting outfit photos (Tony prefers portrait shot but sneaked in a few full length shots for blogging purposes):
Knitted top - 1950s vintage | Cardigan - Primark | Trousers - Primark
Shoes - Matalan | Coat M&S via local boutique | Hat - Matalan | Gloves - local boutique
You can see the rest of Tony's photos from Chesterfield, of myself and others, here. Kevin is still working on most of his, I believe, but I uploaded one to my Facebook here. I didn't want to wait any longer for fear of the blog post becoming completely irrelevant. Please do check out his website though, and keep up with me on Facebook where I will upload any new photos as I receive them.
