Yes, December has arrived yet again, and with it, the great fuss that is Christmas nowadays. Some of us still think about the original event that this grand shopping spree is based upon, but I’m not how many really do nowadays? Thankfully that side of events isnt a big issue for me, dont have too many people to concern myself with buying presents for. It does mean not many get sent my way, but really, I’m not complaining about that, honest I’m not.
Unlike November, my whole social life calms down in December, quite ironic really. But, the one big outing comes early in the month, on Thursday in fact. Alright, its only the works Christmas Dinner, but its my main chance to dress up this year, especially given we arent going out to dinner on Christmas Day this year, eating at home instead. So yes, as may have been noted, I’m in full flapper mode this year. Short dress that they would be proud of, though I will wear leggings underneath, as my surgically repaired knees shouldnt be inflicted on anyone. But I’ve got the wig, got the headband, and hopefully the fun too. No, no cigarette holder, no point. I’m a non smoker, and besides that, smoking rules have changed dramatically in the last 90 years lol!
I wonder if some people will recognise me, in a dark helmet bob wig, given I’ve been blonde for years, but I expect they will recognise me, all the same. And no, I have no plans to dance the night away, or drink myself silly. Two left feet, and a sensible nature will ensure on those! And yes, if and when I get any photos back of the dress, I will post something on here, I promise.
Sunday, my next chance to post anything here, I’ll let you know how it all went.
So, the classic Christmas song, as the video tonight, though not one of the 70’s look. This is as recent a performance as I can find by Slade on You Tube, and thats over 20 years old. Yes, its mimed!
