for my costume at the King's Manor Christmas party with the 1940's theme. Here I am with my friend Simon, who was very popular for photos, in his Fighter Pilot outfit: The level of costume was variable - a lot of lads seemed to think that wearing a trilby was enough, and they just looked like lads in trilbies, rather then actual 40's guys. Slightly bizarrely, two people turned up as Sylvester and Tweetie Pie. And a fair few didn't wear costume at all... First time I tried to do my hair and headscarf, it was nearly perfect, so I thought "I'll just tuck this bit in a bit more..." and it all went pair shaped, and took 4 more goes to get right again... Still, after 2 manhattans and 3 martinis I wasn't too bothered. I like Martini, any drink that comes with a snack in it gets my vote.
