Despite my utmost foreboding, Pearl’s party was great. There was a break in the weather and the kids could play outside. They were captivated by some very simple party games, with the most popular probably being a Harry Potter Time Turner variant of charades.

I am charmed by Lucie Cobbe Heaton Armstrong’s social column, originally appearing in the issue of * Women’s Suffrage Journal* for 1 May 1884.

It begins “Mrs. Frank Morrison gave a highly-successful ‘At Home’ the other day, at the South Kensington Hotel, for the principal supporters of women’s suffrage. There was quite a brilliant company assembled. I noticed Lady Harberton and Lady Wilde amongst the guests. The meeting was held in a charming room, with cream-coloured panels picked out with a narrow line of pale pink and pale blue,”


I for one applaud the combination of feminism and fashion, bread and roses too.
