“We’re going to dance,
and have some fun!”

Hey y’all,

Short Version

Xmas party. Good company. Good food. A bit of dancing. Obligatory photo shoot. My feet hurt. 🙂

Long Version

What an excellent night last night was! I arrived a bit late, but not before the do was in full swing. Handing over the party music CD, I also got to hand over a few Xmas cards. After that it was upstairs to get gorgeous (personally, I blame Boots 🙂 ). Unusually for me I’ve actually got some photos of the night and thanks to Sandi for being ‘Davina Bailey’.

Accordingly to Val, I was doing a very good impression of a goth in a bin liner…. which made me laugh. It was a toss up between the little red dress or the slightly more ‘on trend’ sequined black number I had on. It was certainly cooler than the red dress (Ed: isn’t that a Sugababes lyric?) so I didn’t *ahem* glow as much as last time. 🙂

After being fleeced for money for the raffle – in which I did rather well in avoiding having to pick any prizes – it was on to a bit of nosh (top marks to the in-house caterers!), some socialising and then a bit of a boogie. To be honest, it was pretty much a repeat of some of the tunes from last time, but they seemed to go down well enough then as now.

We had a good turn out and it was nice to meet up and say hi to Rachel (fabby dress, BTW). Famous guests eh? 🙂 Y’know I’m still not sure what the etiquette is for meeting TG people you know. A handshake doesn’t seem right – too formal? – but the continental air-kiss thingy seems a bit forward. Well, no-one slapped me so I’m guessing the latter wasn’t too bad! 🙂

I hope that everyone else had a good a time out there as I did!


When I woke up this morning, I had a bit of back ache and my feet hurt a little. It raised a smile as I thought about how I’d ended up with the odd twinge. Perhaps not all pain is bad pain. 🙂

Take care and have a good weekend!

  1. Hi Lynn

    Oh what a night – check the website for latest photos!!!

    I think folks enjoyed themselves – will have to start thinking of a spring bash – maybe an easter ‘newbies night’ or something.

    Great to meet Rachel as well – and what a dress!!!!


  2. Sounds like you had a wonderful time!

    Should I have been so lucky, I wouldn’t have settled for a handshake!

    Lovely photo! Especially the smile!


  3. Continental kisses work for me. In fact, as I didn’t recognise you at first (me and my mental pictures, rubbish) I just thought you were being warm and friendly.

    Lovely night.

  4. Sandi > What a night indeed! All good fun eh?

    Alan > Thanks and be careful what you wish for. 🙂

    Rachel > Sorry about that! I guess I need to update my blogger photo. Fab dress BTW.

  5. Hi Lynn,

    Congratulations on the addition to the Jones gang. I was astonished each time I had a new child just how much one’s capacity to love, and share love, expanded. It’s a wonderful thing.

    Also, I really appreciate your advice and input on my blog. Thanks for taking the time.

    Hope you (amd Mrs J) get some sleep soon.

  6. Hi Julia,

    Thanks for the congrats and the kind comment. I enjoy reading your blog – it’s always interesting to read what other girls (?? 🙂 ) get up to.

    As to kids, I know what you mean but before we had our first I wouldn’t have.

    ps: Sleep? We don’t do bad 🙂
