So I’ve finally got around to writing this blog and I can’t believe how the time has flown since I was chosen to be Goosnargh Festival queen! It is now only a month away and there is still lots to do; everything should be ready by festival day though!
The first job was to choose my festival attendants. I am very lucky to have lots of friends and family that want to share my big day. I have got my younger sister Niamh, her best friend Ella, close family friend Cerys, little cousins Imogen and Elise, my gym buddy Elsea, best friends Daisy and Erin and Daisy’s little sister Fern. Unfortunately we haven’t found a little boy to carry the crown but if all else fails my big brother Toby will step in!
The next big job was to get a dress. For any girl choosing a dress is a difficult task but when I was shopping for my festival queen dress it seemed a million times harder. We went to bridal shops, we went to every clothes store in sight, we went online where we finally found the perfect dress, or so we thought. When the dress arrived over two weeks later it looked nothing like it did on the picture! Luckily we have now discovered a dressmaker who will make the dress exactly how we want it…phew! It should arrive in a few weeks. On the plus side, choosing the attendants dresses was much easier and everyone is happy with them – they will all look beautiful.
I have recently injured my knee in a gymnastics accident so I am hoping to be better by the big day, although it would be fun to be the first festival queen on crutches! My family and friends have been great at helping me out while I have been hobbling around.
I feel very privileged to have been chosen as festival queen and be representing Goosnargh.
That’s all for now
