I was always set to self destruct, yeah...

Sorry for the brief disappearance but I've had a pretty hectic week, and after an immense amount of sleep I finally feel refreshed and ready to post about my epic adventure-isms...
Well the masquerade ball (last Friday) was wonderful, just as I had hoped, except for the part where all of the photos on Abi's camera got deleted... Oh grr, but at least there's this one which was taken just before we left.
"Cheesy toothpaste commercial smile - Check!" ;)
...It really was an incredible night - I mean the food was terrible and the dancing was just embarrassing, but it was definitely a night to remember... Stepping out of our silver chariot (the taxi we happened to steal at the end of the night) our feet became completely submerged by 6 inches of snow outside Abi's house. We must have looked totally becrazed stumbling up her driveway in pitch blackness.
I'll do a post with my Clothes Show photos tomorrow hopefully. I'm meant to be going Christmas shopping, but I've been feeling so lethargic lately (I'm blaming it on the weather) that I might spend the entire day in bed watching box sets, drinking hot chocolate and eating marshmallows. Ohh life is good.

(p.s. thank you all for the lovely comments on my recent posts! I'm a total cyber-snail but I hope to get round to replying at the weekend when I've made progress on my college coursework and those ever looming deadlines... until then TTFN! ;)

  4. You both look gorgeous! I wish we had some kind of fancy ball like that! How fun. And dancing is ALWAYS embarrassing, if you're me.... :P

    Your idea of a day cuddled up in bed with hot chocolate (and perhaps a good book?) sounds fantastic. I want. Now.

    Good luck with your school work! I've been a bit absent online lately because of school, too. No worries!
