Yes, it's true, I would finally consider myself a 'real' adult. I never thought that I would so dread turning 30, but it has now happened, and even though I don't really feel older, I do think of myself as older, some of you might know what I mean...anyway, I decided to celebrate this momentous occassion with lots of dress up and mystery, and so opted for a medieval murder mystery evening.
Yanina, a good friend of mine, arrived early to help with the decor, and did a fabulous job of our entrance, the ivy really just set the scene...although the candles by the front door proved to be a hazard as Amanda caught alight - thankfully I was standing nearby and bravely put out the flames with my bare hands....(haha, just kidding, the flames were still very little - no harm done)...well except the dress of course! Thankfully Amanda was unharmed, and the candles were moved to the table.
My little sister Geraldine and her boyfriend Greg made a lovely couple, although her name was Charlamagne and for some reason she was seen with many other characters earlier that day...hmmm...was she having a thing with Sir Cameron???
As you can see the queen really played her part well, and had everyone bow before her, and subsequently robbed everyone of their money...ending up picking up the money bags award with a whopping 109 coins - I actaully voted her as the murder - she was really crafty!
Here we have Poor Pearl and Gallant Gary (also known as Ainsley and Tyrell). He was accused most out of everyone...I don't know why...look at that innocent face!
Then we have Chris - I must say I really think that he deserved the best dressed award - he even went as far as to wear tights - something most guys wouldn't do - thanks Chris for really getting into character!
There were many other characters - 34 in total, and each one played an important role in making this a wonderful evening for me - thanks everyone for coming and a special thanks also to Stacey for taking all the pics!!!
Bless you all!
