I feel so very grown up! Here I am at one of my dearest’s housewarming, chilling on the bed with friends all around me and drinks in pink plastic cups being served. Erroll every now and again saunters in to check on me, from the living room, where the party is really getting into a swing. And what an attentive date I have, for not only is he bringing me beverages, but he is seeing if I need anything at all…as Kingsley suckles away at my breast. HAHAHA!! Oh how times have changed: say farewell to those days Alice, dancing on the podium with a bikini on, and say HALLO to babies on boobs.
For here we are, the Hartleys – all three of us – together on a night out in our adopted city Dubai, at our very first wild soirée! We did it! We managed to dress up (well, shower and throw on clean and appropriate clothes), get out of the house on time (even me, the notoriously late one, and this time with high heels on!), with baby strapped in his capsule, Erroll ready to sink some beers with our crew.
And party we will, all in the name of our friends, the newlywed Hursts who have moved to their new digs and tonight are warming it up with a big crazy dress-ups gathering. Rock on, Hartleys!
