Last night we went to the reception put on by the state government for the Clipsal 500 car race. John gets invited to these things as he is chair of a few committtees, sometimes we go and sometimes we dont. It was a lovely warm evening in Adelaide and the reception was held in a very fancy marquee with chandeliers and these incredible swathed tables which I have drawn very badly.
A few wives go and as I for once knew one or two, I could actually chat while John went off and networked.
I quite like watching the politicians pressing the flesh although from the number of name tags that hadnt been picked up there were less than expected by half.
The food was good and I felt I had had enough, usually you dont and the champagne was a good one.
Only trouble with sketching at things like this is you look a bit obvious so this was the best I could do.

Penny, you'll have to get a diamond tipped pencil and put bling ribbons on your sketchbook for these occasions! Chandeliers inside a tent - wow! You do have an interesting life.
