My family and I went to a spectacular 18th birthday party on Saturday night, probably the best party I've ever been to, that any of us there had ever been to come to that. It was my best friend Michelle's sons birthday and they pulled out all the stops for him, it was like being on MTV's My super sweet 16. (coincidently michelle's son was born on my eldest son's birthday, so I'd like to wish Max a very happy 18th and Sam a very happy 20th birthday for Thursday.)
I was trying to find a suitable outfit, I didn't want to go mutton dressed as lamb of course but at the same time I wanted to hold my own against the youth of today! ;) I knew they had hired 3 international club DJ's and had a 2 story marquee in the garden, this was going to be a special night so I wanted just the right outfit, edgy but age appropriate. I think ( I hope) I achieved a classy look, although only briefly as it turns out, I should not be allowed anywhere near a free bar (the less said about the end of the night the better, suffice to say I'm a very lucky lady to have such kind and considerate husband , he even removed my make up for me and made me breakfast in bed the next day. He's a keeper that one!).
There are some things I am confident about but my face isn't one of them, I've got used to it over the years, I don't like it but I'm used to it. So to give myself a bit of a confidence boost I hired the services of the make up artist that I used a couple of weeks back, she's a brilliant young lady who's had the foresight to harness her makeup skills by starting up a business on the weekends and I'm very grateful to her for making my face bearable. :) Also coincidently Abbie was invited to the party as Max is a mutual friend, it was like I'd taken an entourage with me having my make artist on site. Bless her heart she was very kind to me in the car on the way home when I was a little under the weather.

This skirt is super stretchy, perfect for my stoma, and rather handily wipe clean...
