Party On - Mum's Virtual Blog Party

Hi Mum,

Thanks for the invite to your Blog Party.  Who doesn't love a good party?

Here's my party outfit.

It's a vintage black crepe number with a sexy side split.  I always feel a bit slinky when I wear this.


And as OH is away this weekend, my date for the party is the handsome Bradley Cooper.  (While the cat's away and all that). Yes, I am a very sad middle aged woman lusting after the latest Hollywood Hottie.  Wasn't he just gorgeous in Silver Linings Playbook? 

I loved that crazy dance he did with Jennifer Lawrence towards the end of the movie.  I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't watched this film yet, but if you want to see it search dance scene Silver Linings Playbook on YouTube and you'll get my drift.  Perhaps we could renenact it together of sorts as our party piece.  Should be a laugh and vaguely entertaining.

My music choice would have to be Cold December Night by Michael Buble which I heard for the first time on Courtney Carver's virtual advent calendar playlist from last year, which I was checking out this week.  Nothing too fast, so we can have a good old romantic smooch.  I know it's a bit early for Christmassy songs, but I thought this song was very beautiful.  Here's a clip of it from YouTube.


Don't worry, I'll be over my midlife crisis by the time the party ends.

I'm bringing some snacks to nibble, just olives and some low fat crisp type snacks, as I haven't had time to prepare much due to practising my dancing skills.  I don't want to embarrass myself in front of you guys, nor a Hollywood hunk for that matter, now do I?  Probably guaranteed if you ask me!

My suggested virtual present for guests would be to sign them up for Courtney Carver's 31 Days of Presents that you Deserve.  A virtual advent calendar for minimalist or non-minimalist readers of her blog.  I've signed myself up to receive it this December and I'm looking forward to receiving her daily wisdom in the hectic lead up to Christmas.

Party game?  Mmm, let me think....    Musical chairs or musical statues might be fun to  Fuse ODG's new single TINA.

See you there.  Mine's a Kir Royale please.


  1. Love that slinky black number, as I'm sure your favourite guest/dance partner will too. Enjoy yourself, you are never too old for a midlife crisis. Hope we dont leave too much mess for you to clear up before your OH gets back x x x

    1. Hi Joy, thanks for shopping by. Great party isn't it? Never mind the mess, there's plenty of time to get it sorted before OH gets back. Life's too short don't you think.

    2. Bit of a Freudian slip there Joy. Just as well I'm off to mall with Little Bird tomorrow. I meant stopping of course but the computer keeps changing it for me!

  2. Nice dress Ann. I like an odd olive. I'm sure your guest will have a lovely time at the party.

    1. Thanks Carol, it is a particular favourite. Thanks for joining me.

  3. Hope you don't mind but I'm taking Bradley home with me - I think I can help him!! And if I can't he can help me with my dancing. There's plenty of room in the Tower Ballroom. Great party. Thank you.
    PS May I borrow your dress for the dancing?

    1. Oh go on, on both counts. It doesn't pay to be too greedy. He is a bit of a love isn't he. Have a great time in the Tower Ballroom, it looked great on Strictly last week.
