It's just a wee walk

Around to Justine and Mikel's for drinkies!

An old friend, Amy, turned up out of the blue!
We persuaded her to stay for dinner, then dragged her over to Justine's for the rest of the evening. We've all known each other for nearly 20 years, but don't see that much of Amy, so it was a treat!

G is wearing:

Jacket-made by moi

Shirt-Lampang, Thailand

Pants-made by moi

Sneakers-somewhere in Thailand

Manbag-made by moi

I'm wearing:
Frock-my darling Vix
Fishnets-no idea
Shoes-Trade Me
Flower-gift from Justine and Pixie
Coat(on arm)-Repertory Theatre sale
Handbag-vintage Rex, Retropolitan garage sale.
Justine was admiring my frock, and wanted to know where I got it. I told her that sexy Vix sent it over from the UK, whereupon she exclaimed "what the hell, has this woman got a room full of Mrs Slocombe frocks that she's sending to you one by one?!"
Whereupon I said "yes."
Right, we're about to have a nibble, then it's off to the airport to collect our lovely Ralph, who is flying down from Wellington. Then we meet up with some other friends, Gilberto & Dave, and we're all heading out to Loburn for New Years Eve, to our friends Gillian & Waynes country estate!! G's brothers Simon & Mark are also coming, plus our bandmates Nix & Si, so it promises to be a raucaus(sp?!) night of jamming and craziness....I hope!
Have simply wonderful New Years Eve's, darlings!! See y'all on the other side!

Dearest Helga, you crack me up! I'm still laughing about Vix and her selection of Mrs Slocombe frocks!

You're rocking the purple and green - great colours. I wish I could make things - you made all that stuff for G? Very clever.

Wishing you lots of love and happiness for a fantastic 2011. Love Christina xx
