Fancy Dress Party

We had a friends 40th Birthday Party to go to last night. It was Fancy Dress with the theme of “P”. Have you ever noticed that you can rattle off a whole list of things you could dress up as at anytime, but when it comes down to the crunch of deciding – you mind goes blank.

After much deliberation – and searching of the op shops – we finally came up with the following costumes……..
All dressed up and a Party to go to
From left back: Elise – Pirate, Me – Poultry Farmer (note the chickens sewn to my windcheater – Yeah ok so I know it’s not brilliant, but I had run out of ideas by then), Ashley – Pilot of the “Seldom Crash Airlines” where you get a free parachute with every seat booked. Middle row: James – Pirate and Nicola – Princess. Front Row: Milly and Ajax who were not invited, but who would have had a ball running after all the kids that were there.

The really nice thing was that all but one lady dressed up and the majority of people went to a lot of trouble to come up with a beleiveable costume. There were prizes for the best costumes – awarded by the Birthday Boy (who happened to be dressed as a patient in surgical gown and slippers) which all started with “P” – Ashley won a plate! There were lolly throws for the kids and apparently Karoke for those who had had enough liquid refreshment to feel they were good enough to sing – regardless of what anyone else thought of them.

Even the rain held off long enough for everyone together in the Tennis Clubrooms without getting soaked – after that it didn’t matter.

Elise(Pirate), Nicola (Princess) and James (Pirate)
Elise and James were getting a little too excited with their pirate swords and the prospect of capturing a Princess when I took this photo. I might add there was no ransom demands for the Princess – I think they forgot that bit….grin.
