It has been the [wet and damp] season of Garden Parties at the Palace of Holyrood in Edinburgh, Scotland.
“ Is One going to a Garden Party?” I was asked this week as the rain teemed down…….
“No, One is not”.
One was wearing an all weather peach outdoor coat with hood up. One was also carrying a soggy, exotic fruit patterned cloth bag with a book in it; in addition, One had a casual, very wet sloppy, but, almost weatherproof, plum- coloured shoulder bag slung crosswise on Ones torso. The look was finished off with rain-soaked black trousers and a pair of damp trainers on Ones feet. Not exactly a picture of ‘My Fair Lady’ attired to meet the requirements of Royal protocol, One thinks.
