The Hen Party

Last weekend I went to a hen party πŸ‘Έ. Β Hen party’s are starting to happen, we’re getting grown up and people are getting married πŸ‘° and all that. Β I have to admit that the phrase ‘hen party’ πŸ‘Έ slightly fills me with dread – the idea of crazy drunkeness 🍸🍷🍹, pink sashes and tutus and plastic tiaras πŸŽ€πŸ‘•, games and things involving replicas of boy’s private parts πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆ, and a night out in a slightly soulless nighclub πŸ’ƒ, wearing a mini skirt and the only heels you own πŸ‘ , downing sourz shots 🍷and trying to dance enthusiastically to Steps πŸ‘―, with a group girls πŸ‘­πŸ‘­πŸ‘­, many of whom you’ve only just met. Β And sometimes (I’ve heard) they descend into whipped cream 🍦and very naked men πŸ™ˆ, and much much drunkeness Β πŸ»πŸ’(don’t google ‘hen party out of control’ πŸ˜‰). Β 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 πŸ˜ƒ – and this weekend really was superb πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ. Β 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 β˜”οΈ(the weather, not the company πŸ‘©πŸ‘§πŸ‘Έ) drive πŸš— up on Friday night – we woke to bright sunshine β˜€οΈ and the Norfolk countryside 🌳 . Β We went for a walk 🚢, and sat in the sunshine β˜€οΈand chatted and caught up , had a marvellous dinner 🍴 in the evening, and got satisfyingly drunk 🍷 (and perhaps there was a little bit of silliness πŸ˜‰).

On Sunday we went to Aldeburgh 🌊 and ate fish 🐟 and chips 🍟on the beach πŸŒ… in the sunshine.

It was all really quite charming ☺️, 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 themΒ πŸ˜ƒ.

It was a wonderful weekend all 😊.
