'Tis the season for making merry

So that is what we did!

A friend, Ping, is over from Melbourne for the season, so we had some drinkies last night to catch up before she pops off to the coast to see her family.
My frock is from the Repertory Theatre sale the other week.

Here's Ping!

Snuggles with a sunset backdrop....

Then we had a messy, drunken jam.

Ping is a mighty fine drummer!

Then all was revealed!

By this time I was in bed, after virtuously skulling water.

G kicked everyone out about 12:30am, I believe!

Just 1 and 1/2 days of work left for the year.....thank goodness!


*Thanks, sweet Crystal Lee , for your positive comments again on my hair! I rarely wear it out, as it is so fine and generally annoying!! But clearly I should do more often! x

You are pulling out the stops lately - yet another gorgeous frock. Love the length of this one, the shape is just perfect for you. Some of my favourite things came from a theatre sale I went to years ago, but I've never even seen another one advertised since :(

Awe, you & G look so in love!
That dress is seriously stunning, as are you.
What a fabulous party too, you simply can't beat a good old drunken jam :)
Lot's of love,
from a totally baked out Jem
