Day 35 - panic stations

So, our works summer BBQ event is upon us once again.  

Plus points:-  

The venue looks great. 
It's a free bar.  

Minus points:-

I need to:- 
Lose 17 million stones by Friday.
Get a spray tan.
Get my nails done. 
Get my hair done.  
Have eyelash extensions.  
Buy a new dress/cardigan strokelacycoverupmyarmsthingie/shoes/
Jewellery/ industrial strength hold it all in/hoist it all up underwear. 

Considerations:-

I have a new dress.  I hate it. It makes me look like an overstuffed sofa. 
I Would rather stick pins in my eyes than paint myself orange. 
Ditto the eyelash thingies. 
No amount of industrial strength under garment is going to disguise this amount of timber. 

Solutions:-

Eastenders is on on Friday and if I watch it for long enough there might be a good bit.  Probably.

  2. Dont worry about it, just go and enjoy yourself, if there is a free bar chances are people will be more interested in the next glass than what you look like.

    Have a great evening xx

  3. Aunty Kath says Put on your jammies, insert DVD, cuddle the cat/dog/hubster and share a big bag of pick'n'mix.

  4. Good points to consider: FREE BAR! A few sherries and you wont give a hoot, but will enjoy yourself nonetheless!! (and severe undercrackerhosiery in this weather aint recommended - I speak from experience, there was almost the need for surgical removal as it had become 'integrated' into my very being :-)
    Have a brilliant time!
