In the Mood

Well last night was the 1940's evening and incredibly it was in walking (ok staggering) distance of my parent's house. This and the fact my friend Max was available 2 hours earlier than planned led to a couple of cheeky Martini Rosatos with pomegranate juice, and a bottle of fizz before we left the house. However that, some upbeat wartime music, heated rollers & enough war paint to sink an enemy battle ship really got us into the mood.

We mucked about so much with hair, fascinators & taking silly snaps that we were only just on time in the end!! The first piccy is my Ma & Pa with the rather photogenic Max.
And here she is again with Foxy Loxy. Now Foxy didn't come out to play as we didn't want to offend or upset anyone. We don't agree with animals being killed for fur but Foxy was he Grandma's and we don't agree with landfill either. It's a quandary really when there are such beautiful furs around but my conscience is much happier with my equally gorgeous faux furs.
Blimey that was a bit heavy for a Sunday with a headache - ok it's a mild hangover. Yes I just watched Midsummer Murders in it's entirety whilst covered with a blanket and propped up by scatter cushions!! Please don't tell anyone!
This is she & me on a break from the dance floor. I decided that if I didn't know how to do the proper dance steps, then I should just make up my own. It was much funnier anyway!
The event was brilliant, all decked out with wartime posters & bunting. There were signs for air raid shelters & a NAFFI shop selling spam rolls!!
The Jonathan Wyatt band were incredible as always. We just couldn't sit still.

Yes father's RAF hat did the rounds. ....Much to their husbands' delights!
I think Tina won the best pin up photo.
Hope you all had a splendid weekend too - minus the headache :-P


  1. What fab photos! Looks like everyone had a fab time. Hmm yes fur has beem rather topical on my blog of late...but l do as l please, l won't be responsible for other people's feelings. We'd never do anything otherwise. I wouldn't buy new fur though.

  2. Don't you all look so glamorous? That looks to be a whole lot of fun.
    I inherited a lot of 1920's and 1930's fur from my Mum who loved it, being a vegetarian it's not my style so I flogged it on eBay and sent the money to an animal charity. xxx

  3. What a wonderful night. You guys do know how to have a good time!

  4. all look effort!!

  5. Thanks for your lovely comments, we did have lots of fun.
    Yes the fur debate is always topical but I really like the idea of selling furs that you've inherited and donating to animal charities.
