on saturday i went to a local farmers market and found THESE!!!
i don't know this guy, but he was pretty happy to give me a 'post-swim' smile!
this guy won 'best dressed'. he apparently makes a big effort every year
after taking photos of the crazy people, watching some street theatre and going to a photographic exhibition, we shivered our way home. the carnival's closing event was a fireworks display at 7.30 that night, but because it had been postponed from the day before and i was going out, DH took the girls on his own. this annoying street lamp doesn't do too much to detract from a great shot!
while they were watching the fireworks, i was at a fundraiser watching this movie. when the promoters tell you that this is the most fun you will have at the movies this year - they are right! i peronsally don't warm to meryl streep as an actress, but i did last night, and she acquitted herself admirably with the singing, particularly with 'the winner takes it all'. when this came on at the end, it was all i could do to stop myself from leaping up and busting a movie in the aisles. tara and i left the theatre planning parties and turns!
i know that meryl, christine and julie were probably wearing state-of-the-art push-up bras and industrial strength magic knickers, but i fully intend to be looking this fabulous and having this much fun when i'm pushing 60.seeing girlfriends young and old dancing and having so much fun together reminded me i need to organise another girls' night! it also got me thinking that my upcoming trip to NY will not be complete without a girls' night.
the only thing i'm only missing a bunch of girlfriends with which to dance and share an evening of fun - soooooooo i'm calling all new york female bloggers in the 30-50 age group who know how to have fun, love to eat, drink a cocktail or three and dance the night away (80s and 90s music preferred). daryl i hope this is you!
