Having a ball!


This is a first for me, because I am posting this up on my new tablet, all the way from Tess Kincaid's Willow Manor Ball.

As thoughtful as ever, Tess has planned the ball to last for an entire 24 hours, so that us on the other side of the world have a few extra hours to get over our jet-lag, with the help of chips, ketchup (catch-up?) and a rather deceptive hot punch which tastes of nothing but fruit-juice.

If anything, this ball is even better than last year's, and people are still arriving even though the doors have been open for quite a while now. I have rummaged through my wardrobe and managed to find something which still fits me after all these years and my guest is none other than Grace Jones. Grace is all oiled up and ready to go, so I had better get back to her before she gives me the Russell Harty treatment.

See you in the kitchen!

  2. I have never been to a ball in my life, however the 50th birthday party my kids threw for me came close. I could have made it to THIS ball if you had bothered to invite me but since you haven't...I am forced to spend another droll Sunday on the pig farm.

  7. You and Grace are by far the best dancers at the ball. I'm amazed that you're still dancing, after all these hours. Such energy!
