The reunion brought together folk from my family (my sisters J and S), school (GB and JB now divorced, but at least willing to attend the same event even if they would not acknowledge one another), and university (JS with her broken bone and a continuing problem with balance).
I was keen to join in with the celebrations, but this was difficult due to a series of wardrobe malfunctions. My first problem was excess body hair on a scale that made joining the others to sunbathe in my bikini completely out of the question. Then I struggled so long to find a summer dress in the boot of GB’s Audi that by the time I put it on the weather had turned and such light clothing was completely unsuitable.
Once again choice of outfit was spoiling my enjoyment of an event.
