I did enjoy the party, I decided not to look at the time but just go along and try to see and listen to all the people I met.

The room itself was magnificent

the food was also magnificent, a buffet with delicious stuff, my only limitation was not to finish anything I took on my plate and did not like that much.

I arrived two hours early to rehears with the birthdays husband. We were singing "All I ask of you" from the phantom of the opera, and I had struggled to learn the text, It was too high for me but the pianist changed it to a lower key.

As usual I deeply regretted saying yes to this about ten minutes before we should perform... at the same time I knew that there are not many opportunities in a girls life to sing in a surrounding life this in front of those people...
and we were the success of the evening. My singing partner did the beautiful singing, I changed it to a comical/serious act and everybody loved me and the rest of the evening was spent with people coming up to me and telling me how fantastic I am...

I was sort of impolite because I quietly left when the coffee was served it was ten in the evening and I had a drive of three hours in front of me. I did not say goodbye, just quietly slipped out and a phantom of the night emoticon
was home in my bed at one o clock, wonderful. Had forgotten about my cleaning project so I was happily surprised to find my home cleaner than usual...

I did manage to enjoy the evening, I met a lot of nice people and had a nice time... but to be honest that is not my cup of tea. The kick of performing is a real high - but at the same time slightly uncomfortable because I can feel that I get off balance and I want more kicks! I want everybody to tell me they love me over and over! And I am very good at conversation and I am sure that I make other people feel good about themselves... but I have done this for so many years and I used to love it... but I have other goals in life that gets disturbed by this temptation to dwell in people-pleasing...

BUT if I move away from precious little me I can feel good about making my host happy. She needed this party to be a great success, I contributed to that, she was really happy as long as I saw her and had made a huge effort for everything to be perfect...

And I do appreciate to have that experience in my experience storage...

All in all, I did my duty, I made somebody else happier, I came home and all is well...

    Wow! what a beautiful place to perform in! Maybe someone captured it on their smartphone and your friend will send it to you! I know you feel good to have contributed to the success of the evening and to your list of experiences! I think slipping out unobtrusively was the way to go---3 hours is a long drive!

    Congratulations on your singing performance! I wish I could have been there to hear you and cheer you on. And the venue was gorgeous! I am certain that you played a big part in making the event a success.

    Isn't it just great to come home to a clean house?
