Emma's Hen Do

I met Emma on my first day of Uni. Me and a couple others from my corridor went knocking on doors and Emma answered, we exchanged a flurry of words and I liked her right away.


Since Uni, our lives have taken us in different directions and we haven't seen each other half as much as we probably should, but it doesn't matter because every time I do see her, it's as if no time has passed at all. As it happens though, time has passed, and Emma, the grown-up that she is, is getting married! All my friends are getting married, it's very unnerving, but I digress.

An underwater proposal! I mean, whaaaaat! I am super excited for the wedding, especially since the wedding invite is like an old style movie ticket! But, before the wedding, comes the hen do...

We all gathered at Emma's sister's house in Brighton for drinks and introductions, and then, we had teapot decorating...

...at the Artist Residence, an utterly awesome hotel type place! We got to look around a little!

Quite a few creative types at Emma's hen-do, making for some pretty awesome teapots! We put our freshly individualised teapots back in the boxes to bake later at home, and got ready for our night out...

We did a bit of the Mr and Mrs game with Emma - she had to do a shot for every one she got wrong...she didn't do especially well! And then we were out for dinner and dancing at Proud Cabaret!

In between delicious courses, there was the incredibly gorgeous, entertaining, fabulous compere.

Who did a superb job of entertaining the crowd and introducing the other incredible acts.

...there is just no way to make that dish look pretty...it's like a battered penis sitting on cat vomit, isn't it? It tasted better than that though, it was some kind of goat dish...

After this picture it was all drinking and dancing and.... a past-midnight dip in the sea, ha! Fair to say I can't WAIT for the wedding!

  1. Okay, I just laughed out loud at 'battered penis sitting on cat vomit' and my manager looked at me strangely because I'm at work supposedly reading financial documents (not usually laugh a minute!) hahaha looks like such a fun weekend xx
