New fur hat
Now what do think of my new hat? It's made by 'Betmar of New York' and I've no idea whether that's a recommendation or not, but it's certainly a nice warm comfy sort of hat, nice to touch, and just the job for these cold wintry days and nights. I didn't nip over the Atlantic to buy it. There's a ladies' fashion shop in Shaftesbury in Dorset called Shirley Allum Fashions and I saw it there. The lady who served me decided that it suited me better than another, lighter-coloured hat I first saw (to match a fur-trimmed jacket I had my eye on) and I had to agree.
I had quite a good shop in Shaftesbury, the haul including not only the hat and the fur-trimmed jacket but some light blue wellies with hens on them and long warm stripey socks in blue and red to pad around in. Well, it was pretty chilly outside, you know.
