On Sunday, as I mentioned briefly in last week's blog, I was delighted to be invited to a Curry-Oke evening organised by a friend of mine, former Crystal Palace player John Salako, and no, I haven't spelled karaoke incorrectly, it was a karaoke evening with a curry supper.
The evening was to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and the money was raised by paying to have a go on the mic. I love karaoke cos you can have fun singing whilst not being judged on the quality of your performance – just as well in my case! I made sure that I gave my rendition of 'I Will Survive' (yes the family allowed me to do it) before there were too many people there!
John, pictured on the right of the photo, gave a good performance of 'I Believe I Can Fly', and Phil Tufnell gave the Beatles a run for their money with his version of 'Hey Jude'. Tuffers has already raised a huge amount of money for the charity through the charity contributions from the phone calls that helped him win 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here' and collectively we raised another £1000 on the night – not a bad effort from the thirty'ish people in attendance.
I will be missing from my Fashion on Friday today as it is the anniversary of my diagnosis and my family wanted to mark the occasion… we're going to Brighton for a bit of fun and laughter! I will be back at work tomorrow though with Pilates at 5pm. Then Sunday is our Beauty Day. Everything is on 4 Easy Pay and the TSV is from Mally… I think you will love it!
I am also with Fiona from Decleor for one of the final airings of the April Beauty Product of the Month. Thanks for all the fabulous quotes you posted on last week's blog and please feel free to post more if you haven't done so already… I love inspirational quotes.
Heading off to the seaside now so see you tomorrow, Julia x
