Photo Booth Agony and Ecstasy - and Link Up

Is This Mutton blogger Gail Hanlon pictured in photo booth images from the 1970s
Last week I found myself in a passport photo booth for the first time in 10 years. They've changed a lot since then.  You can now choose to have a digital passport photo, where you get the usual print out of four mug shots to keep, but also a code to use if you renew your passport online. No need to scan the photos anymore.

Goodbye to Lockdown - In London At Least

For the last few months I've been describing Lockdown Life in England as part of my normal Sentence a Day.  Now, in August 2020, we are largely out of lockdown, although regional flare-ups mean parts of the north had measures reimposed. We still have some restrictions in place around how many people are supposed to meet in gardens and houses; we wear face coverings in shops and on public transport, and most theatres are still dark. Holidays abroad are difficult because we have to quarantine on return from most countries for 14 days. This week children finally return to school.

What I Would Wear in the FROW: Style Not Age Challenge

A chic dress to help you feel confident in any situation. Black dress with white collar and cuffs worn with polka dot kitten heels
Happy bank holiday - the last before Christmas (eek!).  The Style Not Age collective is having some fun today with the challenge I set, "What I would wear in the FROW,"  the FROW being the front row of the fashion shows which are currently happening, mostly virtually, around Europe.

The thought of actually being invited to sit in the FROW is fairly terrifying.  You could either copy the fashion editors in wearing designer spoils which are not even in the stores yet, or vintage, which at least stops the fashion editors from sneering at a dress from last year.
