Easter Sunday

I know I said that this was Easter Sunday, but fooled ya!  It was actually weeks ago, but seeing as I missed the opportunity of posting a photo of my Easter outfit, due to it raining as soon as we left the church, I thought I would post this one instead.  It is the same coat, and actually... the same weather!

This is my charity shop find: the label reads JoJo Maman Bebe.  I have heard of the label, maybe it means it's a maternity coat.  Am I bothered?  Am I, heck!  I had to cut off the sleeves and re-hem them, but I'm still really pleased with the results.  I was happy that the raspberry leather gloves I got last year are a good match too. 

It would have been nicer to have this photo in front of the wonderful daffodils in the churchyard, but they are more or less done for the year.

Gorgeous Husband was up the tower after taking this photo to ring the bells.  Beautiful sound!

A star is born... no, glimpsed, actually!

A You Tube star is born, but only if you look quickly, and know who to look for!  Yes, here I am in the cast of thousands, doing their "singing" and swinging, dancing and being full of the joys of spring.

You can catch me (very briefly!) by looking for the yellow bottle of Forever's aloe vera.  I am in the third group that joins the "singing parade".  What a great day.  I hope people get the message to go (the tee shirst do say, GO) and get their free health check.  After all, the sooner any problems are spotted, the better. Be healthy!

Many thanks to Martyn of 7 Video for inviting me.

Before the Video

Here I am, standing around, waving my bottle of Aloe Vera drinking gel before we begin the video promoting healthy living.  The slogan on the tee shirt tells people to go for their free NHS health check when they get the call do so.  Basically, an MOT for the body.  For those of you who are in North America reading this: an MOT is a mandatory yearly checkup for vehicles to be sure they are road worthy. 

When the video is ready, it will be posted on YouTube, so will link to that when it is all put together.  I doubt I will feature much in it (it was a cast of thousands) but at least there's a chance people will see the yellow bottle.  (That's me.) 

For those who are wondering why I am holding a bottle of Aloe Vera gel, it is because I am an independent Forever Living distributor, and I am promoting the health benefits of having aloe in your system.  In a nutshell, it is beneficial for the skin, gut, joints and immune system.  Why not try to encourage your body to perform at its best? 

It was a fun day, although a lot of standing around Telford town centre, waiting for the signal to be off and running.
