Yes, it's the morning after, and I'm woefully contemplating the lack of evening wear in my wardrobe. There is one dress I can borrow which is perfectly respectable, but which is likely to shock the rather stuffy people I'll be with, but I shall have to negotiate the terms of lease which I suspect will be something like: You borrow the dress for a night, I don't get nagged into doing housework a week. And if the knee length buckled boots are thrown in and I get my make up done for me ... it might be a month! Thinks: is it worth having one night of black tie dressing up if it's followed by a month of being Cinderella pre-prince?
