So,as promised,here is the loot I scored yesterday!
A pair of fab 70's boots!!I've been looking for some in tan,or red for ages,but I'll settle for black!Not a huge bargain at $20NZ,but not tooo bad!
2 swimsuits.Perfect for lounging about poolside.The one on the right is a little soft coloured for my tastes,but is quite pretty.
These 2 frocks,the one on the left is a burnt orange,fit brillantly.The blue with white spots needs to be taken up,I feel,and something done with the neckline.Nothing too drastic,though.
Now,I come to last nights band practice,a scene of some shame for me,and some hilarity for others.......
This is how we practice!Set up like we are on stage.It feels quite weird,but is quite useful.
Nix and I swap positions a bit,as she plays guitar and sings on some songs.Whilst we were doing "Messy Yesterday",I stand behind her keyboards and have a little tambourine part in the middle.Yes.
Anyhow,we were going throught the set for the second time,and I was feeling quite worn out after my day opshopping,and was quite merry after a few G & T's when I literally fell asleep at the microphone.OMG.Then,there is a tap on my shoulder,Si leans in and yells "tambourine!".I shrieked and amazingly fell right into place,banging my little heart out.....But OMG,I fell asleep like a horse standing up!!
The utter humiliation.
At some point in the wee hours,I awoke to hear G,Si,Nix and Darryl having another round,whooping like they were in the OK coral,and making such a racket I expected noise control to bash on the door at any second.The drunken maniacs.A bit more caterwauling and they staggered off back to the kitchen for yet more drinks.They all stayed the night,and the most irritating thing this morning is I think I was the seediest of us all!A jolly breakfast of baked beans,hash browns,eggs,bacon and coffee got us all on our feet,they all had to go home to face their children,and G and I had to get ready to spend the afternoon with Mikel,Justine and Baby Rose.........goodness,it is hard work being popular.
I think I quite understand how the Queen must feel.
