I just have to tell you about a party I went to last weekend, it was such a giggle. My friend Ricahrd turned 40 and to celebrate he hired a pub in south London and threw a fancy dress party with the theme of the year he was born – 1969.
I was in good company though, with the other partygoers dressed as the Thunderbirds, several Mary Quants (Richard himself went as 'Hairy Mary Quant'!), Buzz Aldrin, Shaggy from Scooby Doo, two of the Three Degrees, Star Trek and the cast of Carry On Camping! The winner of the best fancy dress costume was Stuart, who went as Billy Casper from the 1969 film 'Kes'.
These photos should give you an idea of what the party was like – see if you can guess who is who! I particularly loved the Carry On Camping crew – they were a riot!
I was driving to Bristol the next day so it wasn't a late night for me, and I took the car so I didn't drink either. But drink or no drink, there was plenty of dancing, laughter, swapping of wigs and a good old 1969 sing-a-long, as Richard also plays the piano.
All in all it was a brilliant night and I really hope you like the photos. When did you last go to a fancy dress party? I'd love to hear any funny stories you have!
See you soon,
