Our local show ball is this weekend. Not so much a ball, as a gathering of the community for laughs, drinks and conversation, while a band plays in the background and skylarking children slide up and down the length of the hall, much to the consternation of those trying to dance.
The kids are super-excited, me not quite so much. A new dress arrived in the mail this week. The girls thought it looked very green, Wallace thought it looked tight. Tight green dresses might work on Jennifer Lopez.
But me? Not so much.
It may or may not make it to the ball.
We've been busy with hall decorating and of course a little supper baking.
and for dessert,
some old fashioned cheesecake slice. (Ainsley, I've made four times my usual mix, so some of these will be headed your way ... hope that's okay).
And so by the end of the night, the tight green dress could well be a whole lot tighter.
