What 'o!

Well hello chaps and hope this Sunday sees you in spiffing form. Last night was chocks away for the 20's/30's birthday bash and the outing for 'the dress'. Simon was Wing Commander Lewis and sported a fake moustache with style, his uniform was bought from E-bay and he did look rather fetching!


I managed to finish the dress and bag in time and then moved to plans for my hair. After much fiddling about I dashed to the hairdressers on Friday and asked them to take 4" off to give me a bob and Simon dyed it jet black for me. I can't see me wearing the dress again but it was an interesting exercise and the party was a really good night. There were lots of very glamorous flappers and a few gangsters all enjoying playing cocktail, I can't imagine the party household will be stirring for another few hours.

He does look jolly spiffing old top! You look great, the dress has good colours and works very well with you... but what about the shoes? Wot shoes did you wear?!

Still, no reason why you couldn't wear that dress again... to go shopping in for example... or taking the kids to skool.

I call that attention to detail dyeing your hair to look the part. It looks good too.
