We had a lovely evening,quaffing quality vino with Jo and a few others in the Timeball Station.
I mostly concentrated on the cheeses,as I volunteered to be sober driver,and G got the rest of my wine after I had a couple of sips.

"O,yes,an undertone of wet carpet and goat droppings,and a waft of swede from the neighbouring garden...."

Afterwards,we got to cruise around the Timeball Station,even going outside on the roof to see the ball drop.I think I got a chill,dammit,as I am home today with a cold,feeling somewhat wretched.The Timeball Station was built in 1876(that's old for NZ)and it has lots of sweet antiques throughout. G kept galloping around like a sozzled wally,it was a mission to get him out the door to leave,he was having such a good time!

I did my best to look glamourous,a vision in blue,with a tiara and lashings of blue eyeshadow.Damn flash bleaches it out a bit.It's 2 shades and very intense in colour.

Divine decadence darling! The blue eye shadow and tiara make the outfit amazing. The Timeball intrigues me sitting up there on the hill.
