Last night I attended the annual May Ball with a group of friends from university. We spent almost the whole day getting ourselves ready, but it was worth it; we all looked stunning! There was just enough time to pose for a few photographs before our taxi arrived:
My fellow creative writers and I
My hostesses (they put
up with me up for the night!)
We were the first guests to arrive! Lol. The marquee looked amazing!
The entertainment was first class!
There was a bit of waiting around to begin with, before the party got under way, but there was a chocolate fountain and candy floss to keep us entertained!
It was very cold. The dancing helped us to warm up!
There were plenty of photo opportunities throughout the night:
By midnight none of us were drunk and we were all dying for a cup of tea! We were able to purchase our desired beverage from one of the catering trucks.
By one-thirty we were ready to retire and caught the taxi back, although it was another hour or so before we hit the hay. We changed into our pyjamas and talked over one last cup of tea. It was an excellent night!
(All of the photographs are mine apart from 7, 9 & 10, which are Alice's; 16, which is Kelly's; and 18 & 19, which are Nick's).
