Great Fun, Sore Feet & A Wonderful Book


Friday night was great fun, and everyone looked fabulous. One girl did come as Shirley Eaton Painted gold from head to foot, and wearing a gold top and skirt, she looked utterly amazing.

Each table was named after a Bond movie, mine was 'Diamonds Are Forever' and had hellium balloons above each one. We had a massive red heart, with smaller card balloons, others had clubs, spades, large card ones, diamonds, etc, with tiny bottles of bubbles that could be blown, dice scattered on the tables and a large screen showing Casino Royale in the background.

The food was good, and we were given a gold card/chip thing, to play either Roulette or Black Jack on two tables. My shoes were great to dance in, but were a bit of a pain to walk in, as they slipped off a bit at the back every so often. You can't tell in the photo, but they're covered in tiny sequins. This morning my feet are encased in soft slippers, such bliss. They're slowly recovering.

I'm relieved to say that I left just after 1am, when R kindly collected me and two friends and delivered us home, but a friend phoned and told me that a crowd of them ended up going to someone's flat to carry on partying, and she left at 4am, with the party still in full swing.

I had intended spending the day working on HH&S (especially as I'd been so good and not overdone the boozy part of the evening), but what actually happened was that I picked up Susie Vereker's book, 'An Old-Fashioned Arrangement' and just kept reading. I'm loving it, and her next book, Paris Imperfect, came out a couple of days ago, so I'll have to order that too.

What an evening! And I'm so impressed you could dance in your shoes:-)

JJ said...

Yes, I'm impressed you could dance in the shoes too. They are gorgeous but I can only wear shoes with heels like that in my dreams. *Sigh*

Very glad you're concentration is good today!

We had our office Christmas party last night, too, and I really enjoyed myself - well, at least I did until the end when everyone was a bit sloshed and started talking politics and getting mad. That sobered me up quick!

The Bond party sounds so very cool! Glad you had fun!

Your shoes look amazing and I am so jealous. I am a bit of a shoe addict. I am also cross with myself as I wanted to give you the syuper scribbler award and obviously forgot to add you to the list somewhere between the first and last glass of wine I drank while watching TV and writing this post last night. I am going to add you now so please come and get your award. xo

lane - dancing wasn't a problem, it was the walking that made me have to concentrate.

jj - they were rather comfortable (for high shoes) to wear too. I haven't done as much concentrating as I should have, am about to now.

TF - I was rather impressed with self that I didnt have a hangover after the 'work's do', but I think having this bug helped me to take it easy.

melissa marsh - it's a pain when office politics comes into it.

dj kirkby - thanks so much for my lovely award, I have collected it, and will post about it tomorrow. x

Those shoes made my toes hurt just looking at them! Glad you had a lovely evening :o)

Debs said...

mummy - thanks, it was great fun.

helenmh - it was great. The shoes were quite comfortable too.

karen - they were fine, which is a relief as I hadn't had the time to try them on in the shop.

Tam said...

Lordy, I want your Christmas party. We don't have one and even if we did it would be absolutely woeful!! Your's sounded fabulous - I hope your feet have forgiven you.

Carol and Chris said...

Debs said...

Carol - thanks, they look better in real life (as it were).

It was great fun.

motherx said...

Sounds like you had a brilliant time. Can't remember the last time I even wore high shoes...let alone dance in them!

Debs said...

motherx - I did, it was great fun, and I was contemplating not going too.

Susie Vereker said...

Delighted to hear you enjoyed An Old-Fashioned Arrangement (and the party, of course!)
