I won this frock off Trade Me a few weeks ago-about the time I was blithering about my love of collars.
It's got the collar allright!!
I'm stoked with it. Fits like a dream, just needed shortening.
I got some fantastic comments at work, most amusing was that I looked like somebody's schoolteacher when they were a kiddie.
Actually, I think I look like one of my schoolteachers in the 70's!!!
So, last night we went around to one of the in-laws for a family bbq.
Yep, my sister-in-law's, whom I don't get on well with.
Those who are familiar with my relationship with my sister-in-law will be pleased to hear that we had a pleasant evening, and the Troll and I actually had a good conversation about Annah Stretton's book.
(Annah Stretton is an NZ fashion designer and business woman)
Therefore, the evening was not fraught with angst; I think we both made the effort, found some common ground, and it paid off. Hurrah!
Oooo, on the way over there, we stopped off to get something for the bbq, and in the carpark I received 2 of the best compliments about my helmet!! Actually, I've been getting loads of comments lately, mostly from men!!!
It's all very amusing.
On the work side, I'm training a lass to cover me whilst G and I are on the cruise next month. That has been slightly traumatising, as I am not a good teacher; I'm far too impatient!! But it has to be done!
Ah, sanity, you are way over-rated!!!
