The money raised went to prostate cancer research but the actual dinner was to celebrate ten years of Encore Dance School (run by my friend Miss Penny).
Anyway, it was a chance to wear a pretty dress, my favourite clip-in hair piece (what can I say - once a dancer, always a dancer) and step into some fancy shoes and eat in relative luxury at the private room at one of the local sports clubs.
Miss Piggy delighted in helping me get ready and was especially interested in the stick-on bra.
We've had some adventures, my stick-on bra and me.
Obviously Saturday night - catching up with people I hadn't seen in many years.
Here we are - what's left of the 'original' school. Some of
those girls were tiny when we started!!!
And here is me and J - all swished up!
Which made me think of the first Encore concert and my stick-on bra - when I had breastmilk filling it up and I was worried it would slide down my front and land on the stage with a plop! Thank goodness for stretchy velour costumes. I made it without any wardrobe malfunctions.
And finally - the time I had left the freshly rinsed bra - sticky side up - on the bathroom bench, only to return and find a gecko stuck in it! It took olive oil, warm water and a lot of prayer to free the poor little guy, but I did it. Can't say the same for his wriggly little tail.
Oh the joys of living in sunny Queensland!!!
How long do you reckon it will be before I find Miss Piggy parading around with it stuck to her chest?!
Do you dance? Do you wish you still did?
