It was my hen do this weekend. Really brings it home how close the wedding is now! Two months to go! The lads all disappeared down to a rented cottage on the Welsh border, so my girlies and I gathered at my house for tea and cake.
|This is just some of the cake. There was more. A lot more.|
It was really, genuinely lovely to have [most] of my favourite ladies in the same place, chilling out, chatting, drinking Kir Royale and nibbling on a variety of cakes and sweet treats.
|One of my friends brought me these beautiful flowers.|
It was extremely civilised; not a plastic willy or feather boa in sight! In the evening we ventured into town, and ate dinner at an absolutely fabulous restaurant called Cosmo. It's an all you can eat buffet, but with cuisine from all over the world. I had crispy duck pancakes, lasagne and Yorkshire puddings, chicken korma and chips. Best of all was the dessert bar.

|Haribo! For dessert! In a restaurant! Unbelievable.|
It was the perfect choice of restaurant, as everyone could eat whatever kind of food they wanted, and a single priced, all you can eat buffet made totting up the bill afterwards so simple.
There was no raucous evening, and nothing embarrassing happened at all. In fact, I was in bed by half twelve!

There was so much cake, I have a mountain of leftovers. They will be coming into the office with me today, where I think I will have to spread them across several departments in order to make sure they all get eaten!
