better late than never…

Sorry guys. I know I said I’d try to post these on Tuesday, and it’s now Saturday, so I apologise for not getting this done sooner. I really have no excuse either, I’ve just been having a lazy week.

So, last weekend, I went to my friend Tor’s Hen Do. On Saturday afternoon we were building sandcastles on Bournemouth beach, in the theme of wedding cake designs. Here’s mine and Rosie‘s, though we didn’t win the competition! It has a castle for Tor and her future hubby Nat, and mini castles for all the hens! And of course a bow tied around the sand cake:

We had hired a beach hut for the afternoon which we decorated with paper bunting. It was good to have a few deckchairs and we took a stove so we could make hot chocolate:

On Saturday night we went out in the costume theme of ‘child of the 80’s’. Most of us were in the typical neon clothes and legwarmers, except for the bride-to-be who was dressed as Rainbow Bright, and the head hen who was dressed as Big Bird!:

Here’s Rosie and me enjoying drinks with Tor:

It was a great weekend. We had lots of fun dancing the night away on Saturday night, though it made me feel old when I was tired by 12.30am! Rosie and me had done the Bookshelf art performance that morning though, so I don’t feel too bad for being so knackered!
On Sunday evening after I got home we started getting ready for Halloween. We don’t go crazy over it, but we do usually wear a bit of costume and carve a pumpkin. This was the first year my daughter has had a halloween costume, she was a cute little witch:

Rosie and me had a bit of costume too (my hubby and Rosie’s fiancee made no effort whatsoever!):

And here’s our pumkin with fangs:

So it was a very eventful weekend last weekend, which is probably why I needed a lazy week. I shall be back on form tonight though, donning my party clothes and raising a glass of wine for this party:

You should come back at 8pm tonight to join in the fun and be in with a chance to win some goodies! See you then! xxx
