4 Days, 2 Balls, 400 Scots

This week has been good. ย I have helped create a photo ๐Ÿ“ท wall – lots of nice photos, that look nice together in different sized frames.

And I am going to be helping to organise an Alice in Wonderland โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ ๏ธ themed birthday party for a 2 year old ๐Ÿ‘ธ – I can’t wait. ย Actually. ย Lots of mini Alice in Wonderland ๐Ÿฐโ™ฅ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ธ things, and I am doing some Alice revision ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ˜.

Today I am off to Florence ๐Ÿฐ for 4 days as there are some Scottish dancing balls ๐Ÿ’ƒtaking place there – which is really quite exciting. ย We are going to be reeling ๐Ÿ’ƒ – not the type when you’re feeling a bit dizzy because you’ve had a little too much to drink ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ˜ณ, but the type when you and your dance partner ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿ‘ง stand in lines opposite each other and dance set dances ๐Ÿ‘ฏ to fun Scottish jigs ๐ŸŽถ, quite Pride and Prejudice esque. ย It’s going to be really quite great, and in-between dancing we are going to do some serious Florence sightseeing โ›ช๏ธ๐Ÿ“ท, and try not to bump into the other 400 flat cap and tweed clad ‘Scots’ who are going to be in the city. ย Also apparently Scotland are playing Italy in the rugby ๐Ÿ‰ on Saturday – I think it is just going to be a very fun, slightly ridiculous trip ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ซ.

So today I packed ๐Ÿ‘–๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘ . ย I need two ‘ball gowns’ ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘—(really just full length dresses) – and I have two for sure, and a third just incase I change my mind – pink ๐Ÿ’—, green ๐Ÿ’š and navy ๐Ÿ’™. ย Some pretty flats for dancing in ๐Ÿ‘ก, and an umbrella ๐ŸŒ‚, the weather is not looking so nice. ย Anyway I am now all packed ๐Ÿ‘œ, and ready to go, and we even had some champagne ๐Ÿธ this evening as it is George’s birthday ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽˆ.

I won’t post again until my return on Monday – but do check Instagram @alicefrancesbย for updates ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ#scotsinflorence
