Her name is fancy pants.........


...and if you give her a chance, she'll just dance dance dance!!!

Anyway, on Friday night, the roads were still like an ice rink and as we braved them to fetch the Dancing Queen from the railway station, hubby commented that it would be great for us to get home and know we were all safe in the warmth. However, once in the car she announced that she was actually going out with some old school friends and wouldn't be home until after 3am!!!! She donned her gold spangly shorts!!! but on top of several layers of tights, and she did wear her wellies and big coat which she left in a cloakroom at the night club (she knew she was not getting out of the house without them!). So at 10pm, her friend called for her and off they went. At times she makes me feel so old, and then I remember what it was like being 18years old.

Oh, yes I remember this scenario well when our 3 girls were younger!! They live life, don't they? Love the hotpants! I had some a bit like that (cringing now!) many, many moons ago at Uni!!

I remember those days well. It's a different matter nowadays though, I'm usually in bed at 10pm, not on my way out. I found your blog a little while ago and the first few posts I read caught my eye, so much so, that I've been right back to the beginning and read all your posts, which I've really enjoyed. I live in Leeds so I recognise some of the places you write about. My son is 15 too, and a cricketer. This year's a bit of a stressful year for them at school. I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts.

Brilliant! sometimes I actually think I'm turning into my mother!

Jenny said...

Old as I am I do recall the days of going out about the same time as my parents were going to bed. Wouldn't have missed that for the world, so glad it's over. Keep cosy.

I never thought it would happen, but yes I’m now an old fart that would rather stay in at night time. :0)

Yes, I know what you mean about feeling old, I feel quite young until all of my children and grandchildren are around my and then I feel like methuselah. lol

Ray+Joan said...

hot pants I love them because 6 months out of the year thats all I wear ( only NOT that short) & yes they make you feel young so go on wear them with pride no matter how old you are (I,m 60 next)

Oh, I so remember these days - when I was young and when my daughter was young(er). To be honest I'm glad I'm old(!) - it was all such hard work!

Oh my! Are you sure they are not the pants that Kylie wore?? I have all this to come in the future!

Thankyou for the welcome back, and your lovely wise comment.

Love Lydia

dubgirl said...

If you don't wear sparkly pants when you're 18 you'll never get the chance again! My 23 year old had to wear wellies on a first date with a guy this week! The shame! This weather is a great leveller!
Love Kathy xxx

Deb said...

Yes, they are the fanciest of fancy pants! What a hoot...I don't think I ever had anything quite that sparkly...EVER!!!! :0)

Rosie said...

Bet your DQ look fab in her glittery hot pants! I've just been catching up with all your festive and snowy posts - I've only been away a week but have missed so many - you have been busy:)

Jill said...

I'm jealous, that a) I'm not 18, and b) that I wouldn't be able to fit into these little sparkly shorts anymore :0(

Hope she had a good time.
