How was everyones weekends? I had an OK one, I went to my MOH's in Kingswood, Surrey. we had a nice, albeit drunken time so I am back on the detox today! It's only 3 days of hard slog and then it eases up a bit. While I was there we talked about hen nights. At this point I had had quite a bit to drink and and she managed to talk me into having it at her house - just a BBQ, a few games and lots of bubbles. At the time it seemed like a great idea but now I would much rather just a night away in Brighton or something The thing is - she's a bad hermit and getting her to leave the house is like pulling teeth. I dont know what to do?
I found the coolest frame for my sand ceremony over the weekend! thought I would show you. They're quite expensive but so worth it as they are something to keep forever and I think they are lovely. I contacted the lady on the site as it says only US and Canada and she was so so excited aout the prospect of it going to the UK! Anyway, here's teh link if you are looking for some cute ideas. We arent having coloured sand - we ar egoing to sneak some from West witterings and some from my beach in New Zealand and combine NZ and UK sand instead.
OOOhhhh - I also forgot to tell you all! My cake sale managed to raise £250. With only £30 staff members I thought that was pretty awesome! Anyway - my company offered to match it so we raised £500 in total. 2 weeks wages for some poor sod in NZ who has no job or way to pay their mortgage.
Thank so much for all your beautiful kind words and support. It was really sweet and really appreciated.
OMG, thats fantastic :-) Really good.... Im so so pleased for you x

Yep i'm not doing any exercise (
Mel - OMG well done on raising all that dosh!! How nice of them to double it )
I love your frame it is perfect. We're not doing the sand thing but if we were i'd love a frame like that )
As for your hen, you really should have what YOU want and not be swayed into something that is more convienient for somebody else (trying to put it in a nice way)... a BBQ at your MOH sounds great but if you want a night away at Brighton then you should have it.. maybe just say to her you love the idea of having it at her's but you also had your heart set on something else too. Maybe do both and give her the option to come or not? Sorry dont mean to sound mean about it. I know its difficult bringing these things up but it's your HEN have it YOUR way )
Say you see it on here and thought it was something you'd also like to do.. I dont know how many times i've mentioned you guys to ppl.. i'm like " on the wedding forum this and the girl on the wedding site that" ha ha... x
How did you get on at the docs?
I agree.. Do what you want on you hen... definatly :-) & i was thinking the same... Do both, but definatly do the Brighton thing as if its what you want you may regret it!!
Haha, Im alwyas talking about you ladies on here.... ppl think im mad as ive never met any of you but i just say... in a wierd way its like i know you all and you all UNDERSTAND and want to talk weddings without getting bored... I love my virtual friends, you all what keep me sane through this whole process :-)

Well ladies i have finally decided on my Hen Night, we are off to London on 18th June. The weekend will consist of Cocktail masterclass 3-5pm then out for a meal, then we get all glammed up for Carwarsh (70,80, 90's night) that's untill 7am (dont think i'll last till then), overnight in 4*hotel then use the hotel spa sunday morning.
My OH asked our son to be his bestman on friday, he is over the moon and has already stated working on his speech (bless him). So now i can ask my nephew to be page boy.
Glad you like the Post Box :-) The more i look at it the more i love it x
Your hen sounds brilliant.... cocktail class will be fab :-) Ooooo, the spa will be just what the doctor ordered on the sunday :-) x
its about 4 weeks on friday to my hen... whoo!!
I had a fab fab fab weekend.... We have been to Glasgow for a couple of days, we went to a gig last night :-) It was awesome.....
@ christmas we got vouchers of work so we used them at lastminute.com (or something like that) to book the hotel, we booked "the Hilton" OMG it was so posh, i could swear we were getting funny looks walking through the foyer... ESPECIALLY after we went out shopping and when we got back to hotel, there was this guys and woman with all their shopping bags in the lobby they had Zara, House Of frazer, Pandora, and lots more, named bags, then we walk through they lobby with my brown paper "primark" bags... LOL :-)
