National Costume Day

It was National Costume Day at school and I asked the girls - ex-patriates all their lives - where they thought they came from....
Maud, conceived in Oman, tells me she is Irish - she's in white with shamrocks
Beatrice, though born in Africa, thinks she'd like to be English - she's dressed as one of Henry the Eight's six wives, hopefully one who did not lose her head.
Florence prefers to be Northern Irish, like myself. But I'm not quite sure what sporting event she's representing here - with green rugby socks and a pink hairband...


  1. They look adorable- no matter where they're from! Just so cute!
