Made it to the lifeboats....

Well I survived the Titanic! Not sure if I survived the laughter and frivolity. We had a ball. By the end of the night I was quite hoarse ( probably more like a Clydesdale than a thoroughbred).
 We went there to celebrate a hen's night as a good work friend is getting remarried in a few weeks and as it is a small wedding she still wanted to celebrate with friends. It was more like an old chook's night than a hen's night as we were mainly boilers. Wish I could show some of the nights pics but I will need permission first.
Most of us were dressed up to suit the theme which really made the night even more fun.
I don't often show photos of myself, unless in the company of other bloggers, but I had to show off the beautiful outfit my friend put together for me. She made the hat and skirt and put it all together.
Now get ready for it here is the outfit....

Fighting over a life preserver! How un-lady like. Get back to steerage it's mine!


Recovering today!
Take it away Celine...

cheers
Marina

Such elegance.... such style and so natural. Every inch a candidate for the Captains Table... providing you can stay out from under it! ;o)
