Ro is cooking sausages for himself, for Z and the Sage are partying!!(!)

Not knowing what to wear brought forth many sympathetic and encouraging comments, for which thank you.

I am wearing a rather old, but not that often worn (it is so elderly that, who knows, it may even be fashionable again soon), long, midnight-blue velvet skirt and a (I've been searching my brain for the colour, for purple, mauve and violet would not do, and I have it at last!) heliotrope silk top, which is sort of ruched so that it fits without being tight. It is sleeveless and has a sequined border. As you can see, I do not really have the vocabulary to describe clothes, they are not my forte.

I have gone rather more overboard on my jewellery, which is all gilden and diamondy, and am wearing my necklace and earrings that I bought in Chennai, which is alternate ruby and sapphire five-pointed flowers on a gold necklace. They are Sri Lanken rubies and sapphires and not good ones, it was not expensive, but it is pretty. I am sporting Perfume, which I rarely do, I usually sport the aroma of unadulterated Z.

Time to go, darlings.

oooh, sounds like you found yourself a very nice outfit. I've always liked tops like you've described. I once tried on a dress like that, and I felt like a Roman goddess (I had long, permed hair at the time, to boot).

Have fun and let your Rogue side out!

Well I'm sure you look very glamourous, and I hope you have a lovely time. It's always a pleasure to go out with a man wearing a dinner jacket.

Sri Lanken sapphires are a lovely colour, I wish you would take a photo of the jewellery so that I can ooh and ah over it :-)

As for perfume, I use it all the time. I have made Katy promise that should I become ill or senile, or a combination of the two, she will come and perfume me every day.

Sounds like you look terrific. I suppose a plea for pictures would fall on deaf ears, wouldn't it?

Have a great time. Party on!!

This is like reading a delicious slice of life in balance.
