We had a great evening! I know, I sound surprised! I do get a bit paranoid about family events, I freely admit it. But in a way, it's good, so I never have high expectations!
Scary sister-in-law behaved very well, except for a moment when we arrived, and she came and sat beside me and put her left arm around me and rested her hand on the table, and the right hand she rested on my chair, so I was effectively pinned in. It was, as she is, a bit weird, and very uncomfortable. I had only quickly downed one drink by then, as I hadn't been sure if I would have to drive or not, so I really felt my space was being invaded. I do think she wants to be my friend, it's just that there is far too much water under the bridge for me, and forgiveness is not one of my best qualities.
We had some very nice Chinese, of course, I would have liked it to be dripping with chilli, but one must compromise at times! We were home about 10:30, and I went off to bed, had a lovely sleep, and awoke feeling rather fabulous!! Except for the spring snots. I wore:
Frock-opshoppeed, and customised by moi
Petticoat-opshopped (yep, it's a little skewed, but as I am a 1 to 2 shot girl, too bad!!!)
Handbag-gift from Justine
Bow-Asian store at the mall
G is wearing:
Pullover-Dangerfield, Sydney, in Chinatown.
We've had a pleasant Sunday,shall share pix tomorrow!
* I quite like local girl Julia Deans; she has just released her first solo album "Modern Fables", and while I like the single, the accompanying video really is off-putting. Shame.
(Julia was in a band called Fur Patrol-way cool Kiwi band-until fairly recently. I once saw her live and solo at the Dux, and she is mega talented!)
