Lost Lovers in Battersea

A busy day at work, pleased to come home to a more relaxed Charlie Fish, a nice hot bath, some very welcome guests (Norris, Alison and Andrew popped by) and all with an exciting evening still to come.

As a birthday/anniversary present (our official 10 years of dating anniversary is next week), Charlie had got us tickets to the Lost Lovers Ball, being held within Battersea Power Station.
Run by the same people who create the wondrous spectacle that is the Secret Garden Party, it was full of little vignettes of entertainment (slide shows, a bad idea bar, hot tubs and Asstrology, where you could photocopy your ass and have your fortune told from it).
It was fabulous to see such an iconic building from the inside, with the smashed art deco windows and the rusty supports to the towering chimneys. All offset nicely by various people dressed up in the glammest most beautiful costumes, playing within the various tents and outside in the cool evening air.
As I was feeling a bit more delicate than usual , we even treated ourselves to a taxi back, which we never do! A magnificent evening, and as always so lovely and inspiring to share it with my Fish.
