Glitz and glam'

Saturday night (1st August) saw the Waitaki girls, and Boys school formal. Our children do not go to either of these schools, but Aimee was asked to go and of course would never turn down an opportunity to socialise. I spoke to Aimee, via phone, the morning of the ball and said that I might pop in, she said there was no need!! Very independent our girl, so different to our boys!!
Latter that same morning I received a text asking if I could come in after all as one of the hostel girls had no dress to wear...and could I please bring in last years dress. I rounded up all of the formal dresses I could find in our house, iron, needle and thread and headed to town.

When I arrived at the hostel Aimee was in the process of doing her hair.
Here they are soon after... Aimee and friends with their faces and hair looking great!
After picking up snacks, and drinks for the after party I dropped the girls at their motel, and must say this was one extremely busy motel room!!
Here they are dressed and ready and waiting for their dates to pick them up.
All these girls in one tiny motel room, there are also lots of mums, dads, grandmas , pars,brothers and sisters in the background and the odd boyfriend floating around.
Okay.... I'm looking somewhat shabby here, but I had been running around like a mad thing for several hours by this stage! (that's my excuse anyway!)
One ball down, another coming up in a fortnights time. Kind of sad to think that will be Aimee's last ever school ball. Where have the last few years gone...and when did I get so old looking??

Here is my finished latest painting
This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
