NRFN relocated North of the border again for a few days in September for a VERY important date. Poor Marion Millar was up in the Sheriffs Court for daring to tweet a photo of ribbons.
Anyway, up we went again to familiar ground now. Packing of course all our lady essentials for the trip!!!!! Hateful haberdashery, seditious stickers and garments with POCKETS!!!
We were staying very close to the court happily so after a short walk on Tuesday morning we arrived at the Sheriffs Court.
Women had already started arriving with banners, placards, lots of leaflets and creative garb!. The handmaidens of For Women Scotland had arrived of course, looking wonderful in their flowing red cloaks and demure white headdresses!
I travelled up to Glasgow with 2 other sisters from West Yorkshire. We had arranged a hotel where several of us could stay together for the whole shopping trip!
We had an enjoyable, and noisy evening but made sure that we were all tucked up nice and early for the big day ahead.
The hotel was a blur of green, white and purple, hateful haberdashery flowing through the corridors!
We finally managed to arrange our giddy selves and set off for Glasgow Green.
By the time we arrived, things were almost ready for the off. The very capable sisters of ForWomenScot had set up stall and transformed the Arch at the entry to this lovely park.. Women were everywhere, beaming, shining, some sweating it must be said because it was VERY hot!
The Green was indeed a sea of flags, placards and banners; and recognisable faces peeking through them.
