The Hen Party

Last weekend I went to a hen party ๐Ÿ‘ธ. ย Hen party’s are starting to happen, we’re getting grown up and people are getting married ๐Ÿ‘ฐ and all that. ย I have to admit that the phrase ‘hen party’ ๐Ÿ‘ธ slightly fills me with dread – the idea of crazy drunkeness ๐Ÿธ๐Ÿท๐Ÿน, pink sashes and tutus and plastic tiaras ๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿ‘•, games and things involving replicas of boy’s private parts ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™ˆ, and a night out in a slightly soulless nighclub ๐Ÿ’ƒ, wearing a mini skirt and the only heels you own ๐Ÿ‘ , downing sourz shots ๐Ÿทand trying to dance enthusiastically to Steps ๐Ÿ‘ฏ, with a group girls ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ญ, many of whom you’ve only just met. ย And sometimes (I’ve heard) they descend into whipped cream ๐Ÿฆand very naked men ๐Ÿ™ˆ, and much much drunkeness ย ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’(don’t google ‘hen party out of control’ ๐Ÿ˜‰). ย I really do enjoy a night out of slight drunkeness, dancing and silliness – but hen partys sometimes seem a little cliche – and they can fall into the same category as New Year’s Eve – everyone MUST be have fun.

But the hen parties I have attended so far have been really very pleasant and fun affairs ๐Ÿ˜ƒ – and this weekend really was superb ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. ย Emily did a brilliant job of organising the party and all of us – and she found a wonderful place to stay in the Norfolk.

After a gloomy โ˜”๏ธ(the weather, not the company ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿ‘ธ) drive ๐Ÿš— up on Friday night – we woke to bright sunshine โ˜€๏ธ and the Norfolk countryside ๐ŸŒณ . ย We went for a walk ๐Ÿšถ, and sat in the sunshine โ˜€๏ธand chatted and caught up , had a marvellous dinner ๐Ÿด in the evening, and got satisfyingly drunk ๐Ÿท (and perhaps there was a little bit of silliness ๐Ÿ˜‰).

On Sunday we went to Aldeburgh ๐ŸŒŠ and ate fish ๐ŸŸ and chips ๐ŸŸon the beach ๐ŸŒ… in the sunshine.

It was all really quite charming โ˜บ๏ธ, and I think the nicest thing, was that it was such a lovely group of girls – I think it can be rare that you will get on with all your friend’s friends, and even rarer that you will get on really well with all of themย ๐Ÿ˜ƒ.

It was a wonderful weekend all ๐Ÿ˜Š.
