I'll sing myself to sleep, a song from the darkest hour

My friend Coral organised a 1920's themed Get Together last night to raise money for Oxfam, so in the name of charity I nobly stayed out long past my bedtime on a school night. I like to do my bit for a good cause and a good two for one cocktail offer. I didn't have much of a chance to dress up due to being far too disorganised after work this week to nip into town on the hunt for something flapper-esque, but I did eventually manage to find an old headband and steal some pearls from my friend to jazz up my outfit a little.

I was glad of another excuse to wear my birthday dress from last weekend, I decided it just about fitted the 20's dress code since the lace is so fancy compared to other lace dresses I've had in the past which have ended up all pulled and with frayed bits of elastic sticking out all over the shop (does this happen to anyone else or am I just really bad at washing my clothes?!). And, even though it had nothing to do with anything, I  couldn't resist using my new satchel which was a birthday present from two of my friends. We have a bit of a long standing joke about satchels which started on a very drunken night a few months ago (I won't bother to explain... its one of those stories that nobody else would or should EVER find funny), so it made a perfect present. That, plus the fact that its just so flipping cute!

(yes, this song has been stuck in my head since it was played on Comic Relief an hour or so ago!)
