Prom Dresses!

Elena's High School Prom is on the 17th June. So today we had a girlie day out with Gemma & my adopted daughter Naomi. We had our hair cut first and then after a shower & a cup of tea we went to Shanklin. The first shop was no good at all, unless you were 50 plus. Next on the agenda was Cinderella's Dress Hire. The lady took us to the back room where there were rails of dresses in every shape, size & colour imaginable. Within an hour, not only had Elena chosen a dress for the prom with shawl & necklace to match but so had Gemma. At the end of August Gem has been invited to a renewal of vows ceremony with meal & party afterwards. You should have seen them both, they looked so beautiful.

We drove to Newport, had lunch and wandered around the shops. On the way home we took a detour to the marina so Gemma could get her keys from the boat. We had a look around and viewed her handy work. She'd spent the last few days painting and she'd made a good job of it too. Fingers crossed it will be ship shape in time for the Ise of Wight Festival in June. Apparently the river Medina is an excelent vantage point for the centre stage :O)

After dropping Elena & Naomi off at Naomi's house on the way back (TC's disco tonight) Gemma & I watched the King's Speech on DVD. It's now the 3rd time I've seen it and it's still superb!!!
