Geraldine and Ruth

This evening we had Geraldine Walters come along to give a talk about the services she provides for T girls such as electrolysis for hair removal and also tattoo removal. She was accompanied by Ruth, shown here with her, who has had many sessions of electrolysis and highly recommends her service. Ruth has also created her website at this link.
Ruth has also created a website that can be used for anyone to volunteer as guineapig model for people training to provide different beauty services such as Geraldine provides. see her link for more information link.

Ruth and David Sarah

David Sarah, shown here with Ruth, was here for the first time this evening and made a good effort going round and talking to most people in the club. This is an excellent way to start and I hope she enjoyed her evening and keeps coming back for more.
I was pleased to see Miranda with us again after a bit of a gap. She spent part of the day as well going round town with Vanessa and Jenny so I hope they all enjoyed their outing. They apparently ventured into the Science museum where they found there were more children than they might have anticipated, some of whom were rather curious about our girls.

New MC nails

Tina

Jennifer Arrowsmith, from Changing Faces, also came in this evening to tryout the new nails she had agreed to make for me to see how they looked. She has made and painted these herself and as you may be able to see we have MC in gold on one finger on each hand. The idea with these nails is that they can be used many times with being damaged as they are made for a gel that is not affected by the acetone that is used to dissolve the glue at the end of an evening. I can verify that they all came off quite easily undamaged, just by dipping each finger into a small pot of actetone for about half a minute each. These could prove very successful as I think she only plans to charge £25 a set which can be used many times over and if you happen to lose a nail she can easily replace it with a similar one.

Finally next week we are having a Balck and White theme evening and the following week we are having a Ladies at the races party as our final gathering at NewYork NewYork before we move to Villaggios on March the 7th.

Beccie


On Tuesday the 7th of Feb a group of 9 of us who are involved with running various aspects of Sparkle, got together with Beccie, who is one of the main organisers and also a trustee. She happens to live in London so it is quite difficult for us to meet up but she has recently got a job which entails her visiting Manchester on occasions which made this meeting possible.
It was a very useful and encouraging meeting so I would like to thank Beccie and all those who attended for making the effort.
Following the meeting I went and had a meal with Jane Maybe, Karen and Leanne and then later on met up with Beccie and Pauline Smith from Trantastic. We went round various bars in the village and I didn't get home till after midnight but their company was very enjoyable so thanks to you both.

Beccie

Cate and Joan


It was lovely to see Cate with us again, all thanks to the efforts of Joan and I have at last managed to get a photo of them together.
Cate is celebrating her first anniversay and Joan has arranged a meal out next Sunday for a group of us to join her to celebrate.
Incidentally , in case you dont know, Joan is now the main moderator of the Concord forum, so if you have any questions about it, she is the person to ask.
Zoe, shown on the right in her fantastic black and white leggings, tells me that she has now been selected by the television company that was looking for a T girl to act as a model for a trainee dressmaker. So later on this year we will see her having her outfit made.
This does mean that any of the other people whose names I put forward were unsuccessful.

We were visited last week by Jennifer from Changing faces and one of her skills is creating hand painted fingernails of which she had many samples to show to us. We had asked her about the possibility of getting decorated false nails that we would be able to use more than once as most of us can only wear them for such a short time.
She came back this week to measure my nail widths as she proposes to return next week with a set for me to try, that she has created specially to demonstrate that this is possible. I look forward to seeing the result. She is making them from a different material that should not damage as they are removed.
Next week we will have Geraldine Walters with us to describe the services she provides among which are hair removal and Tattoo removal, so do come along to meet her and see how this is done.

Chloe

Finally, I have an announcement to make about our meeting venue.

We moved from the Rembrandt to NewYork NewYork in August 2010 and are very grateful to Tracey and Peter for the way they received us, made us welcome and went out of their way to construct a changing room for us to use on wednesday evenings. We would also like to thank all the staff at NewYork NewYork for the friendly service they have given us over the last eighteen months.

But, the meeting room itself has always been a bit too large and too dark for our purposes and many of the members have been asking us to try to find somewhere smaller and better lit so that they could meet in a more comfortable area. To this end several people have been looking round in the village and have finally come up with the meeting room above Villaggio's Restaurant that is suitable and also has a room above that they are willing to allow us to use as a changing room. We have now agreed terms with the Management and have arranged to start meeting there from the 7th of March 2012.

As a way of saying thank you to Tracey for the service she has provided over the last eighteen months we propose to hold a farewell party on wednesday the 29th of February at NewYorkNewYork to try to raise as much money as possible for the Christie Hospital Cancer Charity that she supports.
I would like to urge as many of you as possible to come along that evening to support this charity.
Gill Springay will also be with us that evening so you can get some make up advice and make a donation at the same time.

Jennifer and Tamsin

This evening we were delighted to welcome Jennifer and Tamsin from "Changing Faces" who joined us for the first time offering makeup assistance to anyone who was interested. They seemed to spend most of the evening working with lots of different people so I think this was very popular. Jennifer is also a Nail artist and they are coming again on March the 21st when she will demonstrate this art using a set of nails that can be used more than once. Make up advice will also be available that evening so do come along then if you would like to meet them.

Makeup in progress

Sam,Vanessa and Jenny

When I got to Eden this evening I found Vanessa, Jenny and Frances already there and found that they had spent most of the day together visiting various venues in Manchester. This included the Manchester Museum where, it appears, they not only show Dinosaur bones etc from long dead animals, but they also have a small zoo where they have live animals on show such as small lizards.
They were offered the chance to handle these creatures but decided that they would rather not when they realized that even the handler was having trouble keeping them under control and they didn't fancy the sharp teeth. Even so they appear to have had a very enjoyable day together.

Karen, Frances and Kristina

Debbie

Debbie, on the left, has recently met a new partner and is slowly introducing her to Debbie. They have been to the club together once before and were here again tonight and Debbie is greatly comforted by the acceptance she has been shown. I hope things work out for you Debbie.
Stacey, on the right with Paula, was here for the first time and settled in very quickly talking with several different people during the evening. She is now our member number 437.
Paula shown with her, had a small makeup problem and was very pleased with the help she was given by Tamsin with her eyelashes and mascara.

Milli and Mandy

On the 18th of January I got an email from Milli, shown here on the left, saying that we may not see her for a while as she cycles to work and has grown a beard to keep her face warm in this cold weather. Imagine my surprise when she turns up this evening all dressed up but with no beard. She said that she couldn't stand it, even for two weeks, so shaved it off again and here she is showing off her new tights.
Below are pictures of our two ladies who look after the door for us most often these days for which we are most grateful. Tina always manages to look smart in whatever outfit she is wearing and Millie is showing off the very fancy tights that she recently got at a very bargain price.

Cate

We have not seen Chloe since before Christmas but here she is again looking her usual smart self. I couldn't resist showing both photos as the coat looks really smart but the dress shouldn't be hidden either.
It was also great to see Cate with us but sadly she tells me that she is getting towards needing a wheeel chair in her flat and this is going to mean that she will have to move, as the doors are not wide enough where she is at present. She will be sad to move as she is happy where she is with her mother living very close, so she is able to spend time with Cate every day at present. Thanks Joan for bringing her down to see us, you are an Angel.

Mia

Lisa and Beckie

Liz, Mia and Isabelle

We were joined this evening by Mia, here for the first time, having just moved over to Manchester from Leeds. Within a week of moving here she has got herself a job and a flat and has managed to find herself some bargain furniture to go in it. She doesn't hang about. She is a very extrovert girl and will be an asset to the community here as she is proud to be a transgender girl. She is also shown above with Liz and Isabelle, who is gaining in confidence every week with her skirts getting shorter and shorter as time goes by.
We are now having meetings to help organise Sparkle and I was very pleased to see Beckie here with us this evening as she is one of the main organisers of the event, but, as she lives in London, we dont get a chance to get together very often. She now tells me that she has got a new job which will entail her visiting Manchester every few weeks so this should make things a lot easier for us all.

Liz and Didi

Dannyella

Vanessa

Amy and Julia

Kim, on the right, was happy to show off this dress as she told me it was the first time she has worn anything off the shoulder. It looks good and is fun to wear so I am sure it wont be the last.

 

Next week we have Jennifer Arrowsmith from "Changing Faces" coming with a friend and they will both be willing to demonstrate makeup on willing volunteers, so do come along and enjoy a new experience.

Nicole and Steff

Just in case there is any doubt, this evening was our PURPLE dress theme night. What is obvious from these pictures is that there are many shades of purple, but it matters not, it still makes a good picture, I am just sorry that it seems to be a little out of focus.
Dee, shown in the group below, had brought down a group from her shop, with some of them, like Steff on the left, in purple dresses. So thank you Dee we appreciate your contribution. For Steff this was her first time out and she did herself proud. She joined the club this evening and has promised to be back very soon. We look forward to that. Nicole shown with her didn't have a purple outfit to wear but we can forgive her as the last time she appeared here at our christmas buffet she was in a Mother Christmas outfit.

Mary and Cindi

Steff, Susie, Dee, ?. Nicole

It was great to see Brenda and Diane, shown here on the right, who came along this evening along with Carole and her partner this evening to pay their membership dues.
It is good when people make the effort to pay on time as this makes things so much easier to administer, thank you.

Brenda and Diane

Didi

Isabelle

Mandy

Lisa

Not everyone can fit in with a colour theme, but this is no reason to exclude them from these pictures so here are some of the others who came this evening.
Lisa, shown here on the left, has been corresponding with Kay Denise on the right for around 6 years but this evening was the first time they have met in person, so this was special evening for them. It was also the first time Lisa has been to the club so welcome Lisa, I hope we see you again soon.

Finally next week is a normal club week but on the following wednesday, the 1st of Feb we will have Jennifer Arrowsmith from "Changing Faces" here to give a makeover demo and to show what services she provides. See our Coming events for more details.

Kay Denise

Wednesday 11th January 2012

Genevieve

Genevieve, on the left, is now often the first person to arrive at the club to get changed so she takes that opportunity to get a photo taken before the start of the evening at 7 pm. I took a few but I think this is the best one.
Very soon after 7 pm we had a couple come in who were just visiting Manchester for a couple of days and they found out about Concord by chance so they decided to call in. Pam shown on the left is one half of the couple. Her friend did not wish to appear in the picture so I took her along with Cora who had come along to the club for the first time this evening.
Pam was visiting from Glasgow but Cora is a local girl and we hope to see a lot more of her in the future.
I think they all enjoyed their first visit.

Cora and Pam

Paula and Lisa


Paula, shown here on the left with Lisa, is becoming a much more regular visitor to the club and it is always nice to see her. Lisa is one of our most regular members but over the christmas break she has been away quite a bit as she has a daughter who lives down south and sometimes baby sitting duties are called for.
Dannyella has just returned from two weeks in Grand Canaria looking very brown. She tells me that she had a wonderful time there as she met a boyfriend for the first time and she really enjoyed the experience.

Dannyella

Sophie


Sophie has been a member for some time but has not managed to get here very often yet, so she was still a bit unsure about where else to go in the village. I am pleased to say that she was taken out during the evening so hopefully she will quickly get more confidence.
Jennifer is also a rare visitor but this was because she became unwell soon after joining. She is now recovering but still has to be careful because of her health. I hope she will now be able to get out more often.

Jennifer

Georgina

Steffie

Tina

This evening started off fairly quietly but filled up during the evening with quite a number of new people coming for the first time plus many members who only come very rarely. It is always a delight to see Aman come in as she invariably brings a generous bag of biscuits and sweets with her to give out to everyone. She doesn't wish for her Photo to appear so I cant identify her, but I would like to say thank you to her for these gifts.

Please dont forget that January is when we all renew our memberships so do come along prepared to part with your £8 for the year if you haven't already and dont forget that next wednesday the 18th we are having a PURPLE dress theme night.

Millie


   A Happy new year to all our Readers

It was great to see Millie back with us after her cruise to the Canary islands, armed with loads of photos of her plus various members of the crew including, I think, the captain. She does seem to have a ball on these cruises and I guess her mother probably gets more attention because of her which is great.

It was also good to see Pauline, her trusty helper, again as she can only get here when Millie brings her. Thank you to both of you for your loyal help on the door.

Pauline

Liz

Kristina

Emily

Liz, shown above, was one of the very early members of Northern Concord. She has not been out for many years but has now decided to venture out again and has joined us at Manchester Concord this evening. She mentioned that she used to know someone who I am pretty sure is Jayne who is also one of our members now, so if Jayne reads this you may like to come along sometime and meet an old friend.
Kristina, shown in the middle had been out shopping this afternoon wearing the outfit shown on the left and had bought the outfit shown on the right so she wanted to show it off. I think it was good buy Kristina, well done.
Emily, shown on the right is an occasional visitor as she comes quite a distance, but she tells me that she has already got some work booked in Manchester for the week of Sparkle, so she will get her hotel paid for, as well as being able to enjoy the event. Sounds like good organisation to me.

Cindi and Mary

Vanessa and Tina

Michaela and Cate

Georgina and Pauline

Georgina, our member from the north of Scotland, was down here visiting, so was able to come in this evening. It is always great to see her as she is such a positive person. She works as a builder and she told me this evening that one of her customers asked her late one afternoon, if she was a transvestite or a transsexual, completely out of the blue as she was dressed as a man at the time. She decided that she might as well be honest so she came in the next day and showed her pictures and website to the lady customer. She was completely relaxed about it and now they are very good friends, but as a result of this Gina decided that she may as well tell most of her other customers as well.
A week before Christmas she delivered Christmas cards to all her customers as Gina and this resulted in over 5000 pounds worth of business being given to her by Christmas eve. Her business is thriving and she thinks it may be because she has been honest with everyone, but the builders merchant, who she hasn't told, is now wondering how she does it, as many of the other local builders are not doing well at present. So it just shows we shouldn't be hiding ourselves away as many of us tend to.

 

Lisa, Paula, Helena and Mandy

Finally, here are four of our most regular girls all dressed up and somewhere to go. We have been having some quiet evenings recently. It is time more of you got off your backsides and got out a bit more.

On wednesday the 18th we are having a PURPLE theme night so why not make an effort to get here and let us have a sea of purple to get a good photo as well as an enjoyable evening.

Wednesday 28th December 2011

Milli


It was very cold this evening so I was impressed to see Milli arriving in this short dress with these tights. But she was pleased with having got a bargain and wanted to show them off as they included the sewn in black seam up the back as you can see.
She is now getting very confident and comes here on the train dressed in this way and so far assures me she has had no problems. Good for you Milli, I hope life is just as good for you in 2012.

Milli

Debbie


It was lovely to see Debbie and her partner Judy come along early in the evening. I have included two pictures of Debbie as I took the first one when she was sitting at the bar, but then later when she was just about to leave I saw her standing up and couldn't resist taking another as she looked so good.
As you can see I didn't take a picture of her partner as she would be too recognisable, so if any other partners or friends wish to come along they can be assured that they will not appear in any photos unless they specifically ask to.

Debbie

Michelle and Rachel


Rachel was with us again from her home in Kent and she had met up with Michelle, shown here with her, to bring her out in Manchester. They stayed for a good part of the evening before going off to spread their wings in the rest of the village.
Isabelle, on the right, is living with her parents at present, but is planning to move into her own flat very shortly so that she can relax and be herself. She tells me that she often gets taken as a girl even when she is dressed as a man so she cant wait till she can be a girl all of the time.

Isabelle

Michelle


Michelle, shown here on the left, actually joined the club in 2008, but has not been for some time as her life was too complicated. Things are now settling down and she hopes she will be able to come out as Michelle much more often in the future. She has now rejoind the club so hopefully 2012 will be a good year for her.

 

Finally, this is the last blog entry for 2011, so can I again wish all our readers a happy and prosperous new year in 2012. I hope to see you all at the club sometime in the coming year, Mary

Wednesday 21st December 2011

Cathryn and friend


Cathryn, shown on the left here with a friend, suffered a brain hemorrhage just over 3 years ago. She has been back to the club a small number of times since then but she now tells me that she is fully recovered and ready to really enjoy life again. It was great to see you back here again looking so well, Cathryn, I hope we get to see you many times in the new year.
It was also lovely to see Paula here with her fish eating friend before they ventured out again for another of their meals together. I think they pass inspection before they go out and show themselves to the world as our representatives.

Paula and friend

Christine


Christine, shown here on the left, is gaining in confidence all the time and is now happier to be photographed. The mirror at the back caused the extra light but we decided that it didn't detract from the photo so we kept it. Christine had been out most of the day and had also brought a new friend for the first time from the Stoke area, but she was not yet ready to be photographed so I hope we see her again soon.
Nicole, on the right breezed in later in the evening looking very confident in her christmas outfit so here she is ready for a night out on the town.

Nicole

Genevieve

Mandy

Steffie

Sarah


It was a quiet evening, as is to be expected just before Christmas, but as always there was still enough people to make it worthwhile, including one new entrant who had come along in male mode to see what the club is like. I spent some time talking with him and hope that I was able to encourage him to come again soon. We will have to wait and see.

Finally, can I take this opportunity to wish you all the very best in the new year and let us hope that the recession, that is currently with us, is somehow overcome and we all get our confidence and prosperity back very soon.

Mary

Wednesday 14th December 2011

Ana and Mary

I met Ana here at the club last year and got to know her for the short while that she was here in Manchester working towards her Phd about Transexualism. After she left to return to her home in southern Brazil we continued to correspond and she often invited me to go and stay with her to see her country. I eventually accepted her very kind invitation and decided to visit in November this year and to stay for 5 weeks as she put no time limit on my holiday.
She lives in a small town some distance from Porto Allegre in a sub tropical climate so it was their late spring early summer which was an ideal time to be there. Ana and her husband Paulo and daughter Laura could not have made me more welcome. I lived as part of their family for most of that time meeting many of their very large family group on various occasions as well as friends and Ana's work colleagues. It was a very enjoyable experience and a wonderful way to get to know the genuine kindness of all the Brazilian people I met. So I would like to say thank you Ana and I hope to see you here again soon.

I would also like to thank Helena for carrying on producing Mary's Blog so well and the many other members of the committe and the club for keeping the regular meetings going at NewYork NewYork.
Now I guess I have to come back down to earth and carry on where I left off, so here is a very quick blog entry about the Christmas party we had at the club. We had a fantastic attendance of around 130 people and Tracey did us proud again with a wonderful Buffet helped by Leanne who used to be our Barmaid some months ago and came back this evening to do the buffet. Thank you to you both. There were so many people here that I can only include a small sample of those who attended, but for me it was a wonderful welcome back. Mary

I was especially touched by Fernanda, who came in Drab just to say hello, before she went off back home to Mexico, having just written to her mother to tell her about Fernanda and received a very encouraging reply from her. Best wishes to you Fernanda( she has now changed her name to Esther) I hope you have a very enjoyable Christmas with your family.

Suzie and Rachel

As usual we started the evening with a meal in Eden bar and it was good to see Suzie come in to join us with a friend called Rachel with her for the first time.
We have not seen Suzie for some time now but she has been very busy getting her life together and has now changed her name by deed poll so she is Suzie full time.
This evening we had Krystyna with us again selling off her remaining wigs at 20 and 30 each. At the end of the evening I asked her if she would like to come back again and she said she would but the wigs she had with her were all she has left, so when she comes again in the new year you will need to make sure you get here, if you would like one of these wigs at those prices. There will be no more once they have all gone.

Krystyna and Mary

Caroline

Caroline, on the left, only joined us a couple of weeks ago have returned from Tenerife after living there for 12 years. She tells me that since she got back she has already found herself a job so things are looking up for her. Congratulations Caroline it is great to see you getting on with life.
It was lovely to see Elaine in the club after several weeks absence. She knows so many people that I get asked every week what has happened to her. But nothing has happened, she just needed a breathing space and has been going out with friends most wednesday evenings and enjoying herself so much that there was not enough time to come into the club.

Elaine

Dannyella

Krystyna sold quite a few wigs this evening and here is Dannyella showing off the blonde wig she bought which she was very happy with.
We had another new girl join us this evening called Rachel and she is shown here on the right with Marolyn. Rachel had written to me earlier in the week saying she was coming and asking if I would recommend a hotel to stay in. I suggested she try the Rembrandt and that is where she got in but she was slightly disconcerted when they told her the bar was for men only. Even so she did come out dressed for the first time and had a very enjoyable evening at the club and later on in Paddy's Goose. She also bought the wig she is wearing here from Krystyna.
So, welcome, Rachel number 2 this evening, I hope we see you again soon.

Rachel and Marolyn

Isabelle

Michelle and Genevieve

Millie

Louise

Chloe

Helena

Cate and Marolyn

It is always lovely to see Cate and Marolyn come in as they look spectacular. A few of the members wanted to know where Marolyn gets her wigs from as Krystyna had nothing quite this big. As far as I know she was keeping it secret.
Michaela spotted this outfit in a car boot sale not long ago and was very pleased when she found they only wanted 50p for it. I think it has gone to a very good home.

In case you dont know yet, Manchester Council has now in their wisdom changed the free parking time in the centre from 6pm to 8pm. On top of this they have also changed the minimum time you can pay for from 15 to 30 minutes, so the cheapest anount you can pay is now 1.35 . This is very aggravating for those of us who like to get here early.

Michaela

What I decided to do, is to quickly drop my bag off at the club, without paying any fee and then to put the car in the Charles Street car park. When I parked it I thought it said that the fee would be 3.00 for three hours which is a lot less than the 2.70 per hour on the meters. So I planned to go and fetch the car just before 8 pm and move it to a free meter space, but I forgot all about it and had to go and retrieve the car at around 11.30 pm. I was then very pleasantly surprised to find that I was only charged 2.00 for the whole time I was there, so I can only suggest that many more of you use this car park. It is a bit further to walk but at least you are not being ripped off and the Council loses out by being so mean.

Finally, next week we have Gill Springay with us again to help people with their make up. So it is a good opportunity for any new members to get some help.

Perhaps I should also now mention that I will be going on holiday for 5 weeks next friday so during my absence Helena has offered to do this Blog. I hope you will all help her with posing for Photos etc and making sure she knows your names. I am sure she will manage it well and enjoy the experience. Mary

Frances will be organising the Christmas meal at Villagios on the 3rd of December and Millie has asked me to remind people that all members will be asked to pay the normal entry fee for our Christmas party Buffet evening on the 14th of December and all visitors will be asked to contribute 3.00 for the evening.

Wednesday 19th October 2011

Saskia with her stall

This week we had a PINK theme night but we also has Sakia come along with her stall selling jewellery and wigs.
Saskia also brought along Sophia, shown on the right along with her partner. They were running a raffle in aid of Breast cancer research and during the evening they raised over 100 which they were delighted with. So thank you to all those who bought tickets or donated, it was a worthwhile effort.
Sophia had found Saskia on the internet and had been round and had her make up done before coming with her to see the club and organise the raffle. I am sure this will not be her only visit.
We had quite a variety of Pink outfits this evening and as I failed to get a group picture of them all here are most of them individually.

I couldn't decide whether there was any pink in Millie's dress so I included her here anyway. She has just returned from a 17 day cruise in the mediteranean with her mother having had a whale of a time. She spent the whole time as Millie and said that the most worrying moment was when she was stopped by two female security guards as she was about to leave the ship for an excursion. But it turned out that they were only interested in where she had got her very fancy nails done so it was not a problem.

Millie

Marjorie and Tara

Marjorie and Tara are very occasional visitors to the club as they come from the midlands so I was glad to see them here and hope they enjoyed their visit.

Cate, on the right, was again brought by Joan as she is now no longer able to drive the full distance from her home to Manchester. The MS that she has, is getting her down as it is so debilitating but I hope she can keep coming for a long time to come with Joan's help. A big hug from all of us at the club Cate, we look forward to seeing you with us when you can make it.

So, the last group of pictures are a few of the people who came this evening without any PINK in their outfits. Please dont let the fact that you are unable to follow a suggested theme stop you from coming to the club. These theme colours are only a suggestion to encourage members to perhaps wear something that they would not normally choose. But do keep coming anyway even if you dont fit the theme.

Next week the 26th of Oct we will have Krystyna with us again selling her wigs at ridiculously low prices so do come along and find a bargain.

Wednesday 12th October 2011
   

Helena and Danni

This evening we held a clothes sale and I would like to thank everyone who donated items, especially including Gina who has now returned to America. She donated all her remaining clothes to the club before she went. So thank you Gina, your gift was greatly appreciated.
We should also thank Helena who came in specially early this evening and set up the clothes for display. This help was much appreciated. Overall the sale raised 130 for the club funds with the help of a final amount of 50 from Dee who took away all the remaining items.

Clothes for sale

Dawn and Rebecca

 

Dawn, one of our newer members, brought along Rebecca this evening for the first time, so welcome Rebecca, I hope this is one of many visits in the future.
It was lovely to Nicky back again with her friend Sarah. I think the last time they came we were at the Rem so it is over a year ago.
Tina, below, was doing the door on her own this evening as Millie is still cruising in the med.
Chloe, below right, is with Princess Andrea who came in with a group of ladies who were very friendly and complimentary about us all. I think she is a self appointed princess.
I must appologise to the two ladies in the middle below as I cant remember their names, but their picture is here anyway.

Zoe came in towards the end of the evening followed not long after by Jade, so this resulted in the pictures that are shown here. As you can see Jade was being here usual extrovert self and really enjoying it.

Next week, the 19th of October, we are having a PINK theme night so I hope we manage to get a good selection of PINK outfits.
Plus Emma and Saskia are setting up their stall again and also running a raffle in aid of Breast Cancer so do come along and support them.
