Hen Weekend

Last week I went on a Hen weekend, which would usually fill me with dread (really not into the whole fancy dress, getting drunk and oiling up some not very attractive male stripper thing.) But this Hen was completely different; we had a very relaxing time at a Spa (I had an Indian Head massage for the first time - they are so good.) We then learnt how to make an array of cocktails, ate wonderful food and then worked it all off by going around an assault course. Plus the only naked man in sight was our Butler in the Buff 'Joyce,' who served us pastries on the patio for breakfast.

This is the Hen and Joyce our Butler (We gave him the hat so he didn't catch the sun. Bless.)

This is me learning/demonstrating how to make a Mojito - although I wasn't impressed the Bar Tender made me use Bacardi Rum, you're supposed to use Havana for the authentic flavour. School Boy error.

And this is me stupidly going the hard way on the assault course at Go Ape in the Forest of Dean. I think I'm about 10m - 12m from the ground and I kept getting my shoes stuck in the stirrups (not good) but it was a thoroughly enjoyable day and I'd love to go again.


  1. um i've never heard of a Hen before but it sounds like my kind of party! (i'm all about fancy dresses, getting drunk and oiling up attractive male strippers lol)

  2. Lol ^_^

    It's the party a bride to be has before her wedding and the guys equivalent is called a Stag here in the UK.

    Don't get me wrong I like a Woo Woo or 3 but Hen partys can get pretty raucous and slightly seedy, but thankfully this one was fab - one of the best and most random weekends I've ever had!
