    I've taken the plunge!

    After years of saying, "I'm not dressing up like a penguin for formal nights, my ordinary suit will do fine," today I finally took the plunge and went the whole hog. I bought a proper dinner outfit. And it's the real thing - dinner suit, trousers with stripes down the legs, dress shirt with a sticky-up collar, bow-tie (I've never worn one before), and a cummerbund! I still need a fancy waistcoat though.

    My old suit was good enough for Fred Olsen, but now we're going upmarket to P&O only the smartest will do. (Of course the fact I'll also be meeting many of you posh people on Azura has absolutely nothing to do with it!) ;)

    Congratulations Dave - I'm sure you will look a perfect gent next time you go to collect the paper from the shop down the road.

    You might find that you have to start fighting off the girls again.

                    OMG - I cant wait to get home now, to see if mine has arrived and exactly what it says! (At work at moment).

                    You mean the very expensive black and pink outfit I splashed out on is no good either (never mind the hat)!

                          You'd better spell that out more clearly Morton, otherwise some may think 'decorations' mean tinsel.

                              Now even I am confused - I would take decorations to mean 'Medals' and the like?
