A social life (of sorts) beckons

Isnt it funny, how as the weather gets cooler, my social life seems to warm up!

Of course, this year, it has the added bonus of a Thanksgiving week trip to the US, a first for me that I’m really looking forward to. Fine, it might be cold by then (seen pictures tonight of snow falling in Foxboro), which will be relatively new for me, though still warmer than my experience in early 2003, when I discovered the delights of minus 25, in North Dakota. No, it wont be that cold, but I should imagine it will be below freezing at some point, especially at night.

But seriously, I cant wait, just 3 weeks from now!

After that, the fun that is the works Christmas dinner will follow about 2 weeks after I get back, I booked the hotel in Leeds for that night earlier today. Only question is the outfit, the new (very vintage) full length dress, or play the sexier option, with the shorter, sparkly blue dress instead. I suspect sanity will win out, but I must admit I realised my legs were better than I thought after seeing pics from the recent photo shoot. Its amazing what photographic evidence will do for you lol!

Or maybe, the new sexy confidence is just the release of that inner Harlow in me?

Talking of which, and for which the travel was booked today, is going for the Harlow look big time, in the New Year. Yes, the permanent make up look, definitely inspired by Jean, including the beauty spot. Today, I booked the train tickets for January, to get the best advance fare. As far as I know, its only the Harlow look, not the Harlow mindset, but only because I dont think the latter is possible, or Paula probably would!

Who knows, when I have that Harlow look, to match the inner Harlow, I might decide I need to get a man in my life. Or a man might decide he wants me in his life lol! Either way, could be interesting. I dont know, its been a very long time, but when I look good, as well as feeling good, well, who knows?

Which might make this video very apt?

Its that time of year

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!
