I took my Sis-in-Law, Nuala, to Red Hat T@3 on Saturday. She was pleasantly surprised that it was so enjoyable and relieved to find that not everyone was a Mad Hatter.

Nuala borrowed some purple clothes and my second-best hat. She looked fabulous and is wondering where the nearest Red Hat Chapter is in Bavaria.

It never ceases to amaze me just how much donning Red Hat regalia really puts a person in the mood for the 3 Fs - friendship, fun, frivolity.

Big slice of cake There was a smaller number of Red Hatters attending the event than is usual but a pleasant time was had over coffee and rather large slices of cake.

There were two new recruits plus the 'Feather and Tar' ceremony (where the Chapter Queen formally gives the member her Red Hat name using a red feather, to which the member replies 'Ta') for a couple of members who'd had missed the last one. Nuala was given a Red Hat mug with the name of the chapter 'My Fair Ladies' on it. It was such a nice, relaxing event to round off her week of cat-sitting in London for The Daughter.

I accidentally deleted the earlier one instead of 'previewing' when adding the cake photo.

I love the way you all wear purple

But , unlike the poem, the red hat really suit you all and "go" perfectly!

I've always worn purple, especially blue-purple, but not with a red hat until now.

We brighten the place, wherever we go, and not just with our colourful outfits.

I can't tell in the photo if you are wearing the new red lippy?? .. however, you look marvellous .. super-duper hat. There's certainly a family resemblance with sis in law and MWNN.

No red lippy for me. Thank you for thinking of me and sending it but it really doesn't suit my thin lips. Lip balm for me in the cold/hot weather.

Yes, Sis-in-Law shared the maternal ancestor genes.
