Rehearsals are really hotting up for our local Strictly Come Dancing. Three weeks to go...
Dec, my dance partner, and I are doing the Tango. I'm really enjoying it. My biggest problem was getting a suitable dress. I trawled eBay looking for one but they all had EXTREMELY low backs which meant that you couldn't wear a bra. With my boobs, that was a non-runner. As I said to Dec
"If I have to go braless, it won't be my toes you'll be stepping on!!!!"
A friend of mine, Maeve, came to the rescue and is making a more modest one for me!
I was just beginning to feel okay about it, when I overheard a conversation that my mother was having with my sister. You can always count on an Irish Mammy to tell it like it is....
Sister: Noeleen seems to be getting on well at the dancing.
Mam: But I don't know how that poor auld devil is going to be able to lift her.
Luckily, I have extremely thick skin, which unfortunately weighs heavy.
Anyway, I still have the three weeks to get in shape.
