Image by ToastyKen via FlickrI attended an engagement party this evening, two good friends have decided that they're prepared to take their relationship to the next level.
Admittedly, having a child together probably enhanced their commitment to each other a while ago. I used to be really close to the girl although our relationships with other people have created distance which is understandable. We still have a good accord and I regularly participate in arranged girly nights out!
I'm currently involved with another friend's cousin, he doesn't approve and as he was at the party she wasn't able to attend for me to introduce her to everyone. I could have brought my children as well because there were several families there but I wasn't sure how late the event would finish. It was good to see everyone, especially since I became the pariah of the group. It appears that any holiday to Las Vegas has been abandoned though, available funds being the deciding factor. I was actually beginning to anticipate the attempted kidnapping of Mike Tyson's tiger. Found out that my brother's band the Internal Skars are at the same venue in a few weeks so will definitely add that to what has become a busy calendar over the next few weeks..
