Blue is the colour – Day 21

While everyone is celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday (Happy Birthday Your Majesty) today I’ll be attending another very special birthday party – a 100th birthday party.

I’m not a guest at the party, I’m not a family member, I’m not a friend.  I’ve never even met the Birthday Girl before.  But I’m not gatecrashing – that really wouldn’t be a nice thing to do – I’m attending as part of my job.

You see the lady in question is a service user (I work in local government) and I’ve organised some “comms” around the event to make sure our very own centenarian is the centre of attention.  After all she has had to share her birthday with the Queen every years since she was 10 years old.

So the Lord Mayor is coming, she’ll be receiving her letter from the Queen, entertainment, a cake and buffet have all been organised – and – to top it all off – the BBC are coming along to film the celebrations.  And unlike the Queen our Birthday Girl isn’t used to being on TV – so this will be extra special for her.

So although not a guest I had to find something appropriate to wear for a very special birthday party while continuing to #wearblueforcharlie.

And after thinking about it for just a few minutes I decided nothing could be more perfect than this Royal Blue dress – it’s lacy so appropriate for a party – but also smart enough to look professional.


It’s days to like today when I really love my job.  But more importantly I’m still able to support the Charlie Cookson Foundation.
