70'S AND JETSETTING...

i was invited to TWO functions on the same evening,that never happens here!! Anyway, i chose to go my friends 60th which was such a fun night, lovely food, music and lots of dancing with very sore knees the next day at work :( [it was worth it... ]

it was also quite eventful with the sparklers on croquenbush birthday cake, setting off the fire alarms, causing us all to be evacuated and two fire trucks turning up....:) luckily it was a warm night to standing on the pavement !

the other do thatt was on was my nephews and his partners celebrating their combined 35th birthdays and having 70's themed bash !

Charlie was undecided what to wear and asked me if i still had 'that' top. i said yes and could put my fingers right on it due to all the purging that has been going on here. ive kept it all these years because i have always loved the fabric and hoped to fit into it one day.....yeah yeah, one can only dream :)
anyway it fitted perfectly and has now become her favourite top. i showed it to both my girls years ago and they both hated it , funny how things change. anyway she looked gorgeous with centerpart, blue eyeshadow and denim shorts but im not allowed to show pics :(

So heres me in 1972/3, in my top !! ive just realised we are all standing right under the keep off sign lol, maybe it was thing in the background and not the tree !

my brother looks a bit perplexed !

and the cropped out daughter with danish flower necklace..



So while at the 60th, i get a text thru the night saying that the birthday party had turned into wedding !!!!!! i was really sorry i missed that as it turned into such a great family night....
Congratulations Tim and Michelle, heres to a wonderful life together !


and speaking of Charlie, we celebrated 12 months of her being home last week and im really proud of the way she has got back into life here again which i know hasnt been easy... she has just left this morning for Palmerston Nth in New Zealand for 10 days to see her friend she was on exchange with. she was so excited...i love the way she has goals and works towards them...she was planning and saving for this all year....
anyway im off to do some housework and get ready for craft and work, have a good day and stay cool , another hottie here today ..xxx

Your story about the top and your girls hating it years ago is so funny. They say if you keep a piece of clothing or shoe long enough it comes back in style. I have 1 or 2 items form when I was 14! I will never fit in them again and my kids didn't want them. But guess what? I was shoe shopping recently and I got me 2 pairs of Converse tennis shoes. Remember those...back in style! When I went to the doctor the other day he had to check my pulse in my ankle (I guess that is what he was doing) and he got very excited when he saw my shoes and wanted to know where I got them! I am a trend setter...sweet! LOL
