I'm having big shoes issues, why are heels so fecking uncomfortable.  I'm thinking of wearing trainers all evening ...

I shall be wearing heels so high, you could call them stilts.  I shall be almost normal height once I am in them.

I will be arriving at the venue at ca 7.45pm and walking around barefoot at ca 7.48pm.

settle for a massive inch and a half heels.high enough to make me feel like a lady but low enough that i won't have far to fall....

that if i don't change my mind in the next 7 days

I'm wearing sparkly high heels. I'm already quite tall so I wil look humungus.

I honestly don't find them too bad comfort wise.

I'm really looking forward to seeing Seren in heels

I am most excited about seeing Seren all dolled up I don't think I've ever seen her in anything except kit, post-race kit or "mooching about" stuff, certainly not posh frock. Can't wait. I think I need some skinny jeans.

how else will you recognise me.i only wear it to hide all the grey hairs

Oh dear, this has snuck up on me and I don't have time to buy a posh dress now.  Guess I will be slobbing it then

I've told them 7.30pm with the food being served at 8pm.  However, they are open all day and I don't expect they will take issue with people arriving early.

Website for the venue is here


If you scroll down to the pics at the bottom of the home page, we are in the rear lounge area - this is the second picture in from the left.

SA - I believe we're in the same hotel (as is Rafi). I don't mind a cheeky one a bit earlier.

26/11/2012 at 14:08

They're very friendly/accommodating - would you like me to go back to them and ask them if we can have our space from 7pm?

I'm around from now
In Bristol with work so thought it was daft to go home Friday only to return on Saturday. Mrs Matt is arriving Thursday or Friday.
I'm now paranoid I'm overdressing. Do I need to get another outfit before Saturday?

Matt - I think there will be at least 3 or 4 of us in black tie - it'll be fine!

SA/Cat - as I'll be on the turbo all afternoon doing the bike fit - it may be important for me to re-hydrate before the party, so may join for a cheeky one first!

Matt: the final confirmation from the coach is still outstanding, but this was the last post on the subject, post code of leisure centre is BS14 0JZ

ETA: I can fit into my dress trousers, so another +1 for black tie
