Start of the night
It was off to the ball last night.....being given notice at 12pm that Brendan would be available for us to attend the Cup Match Party left me little time to get organised. Try finding a suitable dress for oneself when heavily (almost 8 months pregnant) for a black tie event!! Now factor in a 2 1/2 year old that has just woken from his daily nap (at 3pm) to be told that mamma has to go shopping for a dress and needs him to be patient while she looks......do you smell trouble??
2 hours was the record time. Not bad considering when comparing times to other short noticed mums.
The night kicked off at 930pm, red carpet entry (of course) very funny when the paps (paparazzi) bulbs are flashing at you because they're not sure who you are but figure, they should get some pics 'just in case'...
Moet and any other beverage of choice flowed abundantly all night (damn it, these events are always held when I am pregnant and practising 'sans alcohol' !) but I must say I am glad we made the effort to go to this one. Duran Duran was the headlining act and didn't disappoint,
Looking back out down the red carpet
Can you believe its 930pm in this pic, it doesn't get dark here till about 10!
the boys still know how to get the crowd going...
We left sometime after midnight, as my poor feet couldn't take my skyscraping stilettos a minute longer.
All in all a fabulous night creating memories to last and stories to tell for a lifetime...
