Dressing up



I'd forgotten just how awkward they are to put on. Pantyhose. A curse and a blessing.

Run one leg and they are done.

No need for garters.

Third pair lucky. Thankfully I had a stockpile in the back of a drawer and found a pair without runs, the right colour that fit, so dressing for the wedding last night was relatively easy. My black skirt was a good buy years ago as it seems to hold up well to most dress up occasions and I managed with Paul's help to find the perfect new top at a very reasonable price. I hate spending money on clothes and hate it even more when it might be for something I will seldom wear.

I do think I need to find a more up to date pair of black dress shoes though. sigh I hate shopping from shoes even more.

It was a lovely service and reception. More food than we could finish and extremely tasty. The bridal pair ( groom = son of very good neighbours ) decided not to have a traditional cake. Instead they had a multi tiered server of 3 different flavoured cupcakes iced in the wedding colours.

We didn't dance, never do, but we did talk and sip decent wine. An enjoyable evening.

Is there any other kind??

Formal still seems to be very in around here.

yup, being a woman is definitely a lot harder than being a man. we don't have to worry about stockings or make-up or our weight or any of that stuff!

glad you enjoyed the evening.

lol - my view of pantyhose is best summed up by my word verification - "dangedi"

They are great for tomatoes, though!
