I made it back from my hen weekend in one piece. There was no tying to lamp posts involved, but thanks for enquiring after my health Lesley.

The whole weekend was organised by my bridesmaids, who know that I neither like being centre of attention or that I'm a party animal. At 34, I just think I'm a bit too old for all that. The mature affair that we were aiming for was achieved.
We spent the day at the bingo, dressed as old ladies, and the evening was a meal and a few drinks.

 my mum (she is technically a grandma, so she was winning in the fancy dress stakes)
Most people thought we looked great.  The older ladies (regulars) at the Bingo were fab, and really helped us novices out with which card to play and when - we didn't have a clue.

There is also a picture of me somewhere offering a werthers original to a very bemused ambulance driver.  At this point I have no doubt he was cursing having to work late nights.

The lady who served us in the cocktail bar said that we smelled of charity shops and wee. She might have had a point about smelling of charity shops - I can't comment about the wee mind you.

Oh my. You look very special indeed. It looks as though you had a fabulous time. You've given me a belly laugh tonight.

I'm sitting here crying - oh Monda, you've given me the best laugh! What a totally fabulous and fun way to spend your hen night. Your mum really looks the part in those fantastic curlers :o)

I don't envy you the bingo though. I'm really not quick enough for bingo and find the whole experience terrifying!

Glad you didn't end up having to be cut off a lamppost by a handsome fireman.

Oh wow this is too funny and I am loving the granny attire! Glad you had an awesome time <3

What a brilliant idea! Love it! I bet it was a lot of fun. I am going to a hen party in a few weeks and I am dreading it, like you, not the type that is loud and party animal, let's just hope that is as much fun as yours ;0)

you're never to old to have a good time. 34 is young by my standards.
