The Construction Industry Summer Ball

and not a hard hat in sight!
Last night Peter and I attended a Summer Ball in aid of the Lighthouse Charity at The Artillery Garden near Finsbury Park. The evening was wonderful, and we had a lovely time. There was a fun fair, a casino, Ice cream machine on tap!, free flowing Champagne and Pimms, lots of entertainment in between courses, and a disco. The venue was huge with several Marquees, and I so wished I could have taken my camera in, but I was on stricked instructions not too!

There was a photographer taking photos, and we did go and have some taken, but when we viewed them, they just weren't for us, so the only photos we have are from the hotel room.
My darling husband look so dashing in his dinner suit, and I borrowed the most amazing beaded deep burgundy dress, with a plunged spider web back from a friend. I had my sucky in knickers, boob tape and party heels on to get me through the night! Needs must and all that!! YOu acn just about see the back of my dress in the mirror.

The auction was amazing with donations of Centre court box tickets to Wimbledon, Golf at the Belfry for 4 people all inclusive, a box for 10 at the Rugby, to name just a few. But with the starting price at £500, they were all just a bit out of our range!! I believe the Rugby went for nearly £3,000!!
Hopefully lots of money was raised by the 700+ guests who attended.

Whilst I thought I had composed myself well all evening, Peter drops a bombshell of several incriminating photos of me when we had got back to the hotel.....Apparently I had got the fit of the giggles after falling off the bed!

Oh well, it amused him if nothing else, LOL
Hope you all had a lovely weekend, and dads everywhere enjoyed Fathers Day.
