|Dinah is the Queen of Perfection. DInah even wakes in the morning with uncreased pyjamas; does she iron in her dreams? All her outfits are assembled beautifully and accessorised with unusual, often unique, pieces. DInah is also the Queen of Car Boot Sales from where she collects clothes, jewellery and many other things for herself and for others. It is not unusual for Dinah to give you something that she spotted at a car boot sale and knew would be just what you needed (even if you didn't know it). Yes, Dinah is generous - with her time, herself and her money. In the street she carries envelopes each containing a fiver and will give one to a stranger: a random act of kindness.|
|Dinah is Queen of Fun. Despite her elegance she loves to dress up and once spent an entire week dressed only in the contents of the fancy dress cupboard (the photograph shows Dinah dressed for dinner at her 60th birthday party). There is no limit to the silliness with which she will engage. One year, at Laurieston Hall, somebody found a toy squid; Dinah and the children spent the week 'squidding' each other.
Dinah is Queen of Sensitivity and Gentleness. She offers healing to those who need it and is always ready to listen and provide support. Dinah creates grace and serenity. Now Dinah is busy creating beauty at the end of life: lavender, WI teas, fitted knickers. Dinah demonstrates elegance in all things, leavened with humour and empathy. She is a joy to know and to love.
I'm sure there are things that I have missed; please add them in the comments
