There is nothing I enjoy more than donning a fancy frock and some sparkly things and dancing the night away!
This weekend hubby and I attended a Masquerade Ball at The Grand Hotel in Brighton to help raise money on behalf of The British Heart Foundation. These events are generally held for a reason and on this occasion it was to celebrate the life of a very special man, Trevor who some years ago I had the pleasure to work with. Trevor worked tirelessly to raise money for charity, running marathons, cycling like a champ and various other heroic pursuits so it was shocking to learn of his passing due to a heart related problem. We all know that Trevor would have approved of the merriment and mischief making during the Ball and it was so good to catch up with old friends and talk about him and our time together. I don’t know how much was raised on the night but there were some pretty deep pockets in the room, all giving generously, a very special occasion!
The other highlight of the evening for me was to spend it with my very handsome hubby in a dinner suit…….. I must have a James Bond fetish, there is just something about a Dickie bow that I find irresistible. Haha, true to form though the Dickie was removed relatively early on as it was ‘slowly choking’ him to death, yes, I have been assured its a real threat, so ladies be wary over the Christmas season, danger abounds!
As for Betsy, she didn’t let me down…….. didn’t have to faff about with her at all whilst getting prepped for the Ball, just a quick ‘ruffle’ and a spritz of hairspray and she was good to go……. Fabulous!
