I’ve recently got into the heritage house stewarding side of things. I really enjoy it – meeting a vastly different set of folk every week. I also like the different colleagues I see and work with on a regular basis. It keeps me up to date with what’s going on outside of my little world. One of the other plus things about the venue is the dress shop that is nearby – I have many female friends who struggle to find comfortable, well fitting clothes that actually flatter them. It’s embarrassing to find myself accompanying them to venues that call for a certain dress code and in my mind I’m waltzing down the red carpet with a small elephant, squashed into some eye popping stretchy garment that does little for her confidence or my reputation as the one who got away! Dress sense cannot be bought true, but hints come from good quality dress sites.
