Indian themed outing..

Over the weekend, hubby and I took the girls to a local community event with the focus on all things Indian. It was really disappointing that the weather had turned miserable as the Bollywood movie that was planned to be screened 'under the stars' in the park had to be postponed.

The event was moved indoors and was still loads of fun. I'm glad we made the effort to go...






There was a beautiful lady offering free henna designs - I found it fascinating to watch her. The curry restaurant from the next town was also there so dinner was sorted (really, really GOOD butter chicken!), and the music was wonderfully hypnotic. As I said, it was a shame about the weather, hopefully it will behave next time!

    1. Yes, it's been so long since we've seen a movie under the start, Linda. Hopefully next time will be better!

      Oh wow, henna on your man's head sounds spectacular, Kate! I think you posted a pic of this?

    1. Ha, they are, aren't they, Rose. One could stop and stare shamelessly for hours at others hands.. :)

      Mmm, I don't quite know what the daughters would've thought, dixiebelle, but it would've been entertaining to find out!

  6. That looks like great fun! Henna tattoos are all the rage here too - did yours get darker over the next few days?

    1. Really beautiful, africanaussie - it was a shame so many people were chatting while they were playing though..

      Yes..really quite dark, Celia - much to the daughters disgust. Theirs only slightly darkened. After googling, I discovered that the more porous the skin is, the better the henna will stain...I guess my hands are so well weathered they took the dye up like a sponge! :)

  8. It was SO miserable, Kirsty - very tempting to stay home near the fire. I'm really glad we went though..I also saw a couple of familiar faces there. :)

  9. Christine that looks like it would have been lots of fun, too bad about the bollywood film. I have a secret love for all things bollywood... (actually not so secret). Little Monkey was pestering me to henna his foot again just today, alas no time.

    ps. love the new 'wheel' too :-)
