Thinking & Feeling

I was Elizabeth Taylor

We had a Hollywood-style Murder Mystery Dinner Party last night. We had to dress as if we were going to a movie launch - where the murder was to take place. I ended up going more or less as Elizabeth Taylor. I think I did a good job. It's a very young company (most of the team are in their 20s) so I was the older woman who drank to much and partied hard ;)

I actually ended up having a lot of fun in the end. I was not that excited about going at first...

One day I will grow up and become responsible though, and will learn to refuse offers of Tequila shots (I HAVE learned to adamantly refuse Jaeger Meister though - vile stuff. I at least LIKE Tequila) and will go home at a sensible hour and will not be one of the last to leave the dance floor!

I don't think I did anything too embarrassing, but boy did I feel like crap this morning! I was tempted to just stay in bed, but it was a STUNNING day and when I was invited up Lion's Head - with an offer to off load one of the kids for the night afterwards I couldn't say no. So off we went.

After the long trek up and down the mountain and then waving Griffin on his way as he left for his sleep-over. I took Quinn to Camps Bay. I realised this is the only one-on-one time I have had with him for MONTHS, and I think it was very long over due. We used to often do things, just the 2 of us, and I think he needs it. We walked on the beach, looked for shells, and then went for an ice-cream. Delicious. We then came home, cooked dinner and watched TV snuggled on the couch. It was a good day.


  1. My last Jaegie was the night about 4 years ago where we were worried about running out of it... So we started diluting it with vodka.

    I don't recommend that.

    Your hair seems to have settled into looking good, btw.

  2. Your hair looks absolutely fucking gorgeous!

  3. he he . you looked remarkably fresh for someone that drank tequila the night before! LOL
