A walk through the park.....

A walk through the park....
Unusually quiet but for the children on the playground in the distance, laughing and screaming as they fight over the oversized mushroom castle, and the elderly couple on the park bench who sit, eating their salad sandwiches and chatting quietly to themselves.
Clip clopping past them in my slightly oversized heels (they matched the dress better than the black pair) the wind catches my blue dress and I hastily try to catch it. I wanted to show off my outfit, but not quite THAT much! I look over my shoulder to see if anyone noticed. No one around. Good. I gather confidence again and continue along the winding path.
I am so proud of my dress. I wanted to show it off but obviously chose the wrong weekend to do so.  Breath of life festival is on so town is dead quiet apart from the "Yo Yo Yo"s in the distance and the cheering of crowds. Not my thing. Id rather sit in a park in pretty dress and read a book.
This dress was definitely a "pretty",  a blue and white tea dress I purchased from Vashti Boutique, my favourite dress shop in town. I had bought it for a wedding but couldn't help myself.....it was just too lovely.
A wave of laughter ran through the park and a group of rowdy, drunk youths push their way through the gates, signaling the time for me to leave. I manage to sneak out a side gate and away from the kids although the wind catching my dress again, and begin my walk home.
