Hen Party – part 1


As you may know, it was recently my friend’s hen do see here for pictures of where we stayed. It was such a fun weekend so I have posted some general (carefully selected) photos! We had a swimming pool which we had a great time in and got hundreds of pictures of but I don’t think my friends would appreciate me putting bikini shots on here!Amy – the bride to be! Below – Sarah and Brooke – best friends and ex housemates from when I lived in Cambridge – miss them both dearly!

Speech time! We laughed, we cried and we had a fantastic time telling embarrassing stories about each other!
Thank you for reading my blog – pop back for part 2 of the hen do!

Jubilee

I spent the Queen’s jubilee weekend with my best friends and we tried to be involved in all the action as much as possible but I have to say that I didn’t manage to take very many pictures of it because I was enjoying myself too much! The atmosphere in London was buzzing and everyone I saw was happy and enjoying the celebrations.

Here are some of the pictures I did get. How did you celebrate? Did you see the Jubilee concert? I was blown away by it! Elton John singing ‘I’m still standing’ was my favourite as that is my all time favourite song (probably shame on me!)

Click here for the Diamond Jubilee concert – Madness – Our House to see the amazing light show on Buckingham Palace

I went to a street party on the Tuesday in Cambridge where I am from but I will put that in a different post.

 

They held a street party all the way down Piccadilly which was good fun, lots of champagne, food tasting, picnics and music!My best friends having a great time!

Thank you for reading my blog! I hope you enjoyed the celebrations as much as I did!

Life is Sweet

Nearly a year ago my good friend Kirsty married Dan and it was the most beautiful wedding so I wanted to share it with you all before they celebrate their first wedding anniversary. The day was perfect in every single was as I am sure you will see. The venue was so stunning, so English and so ideal. They got married at Longstowe Hall, near Cambridge where we are all originally from. The weather could not have been better which made all the difference – Pimms on the lawn, in the sun, listening to steel drums after celebrating their wedding was such a great feeling.The wedding colours and styles suited the venue and Kirsty perfectly!

The best friends….
All the girls!A magical moment watching Kirsty, Laura, Phily and Shani come down from the sunset!

It was such a brilliant day – had to share it with everyone else! Thank you for reading my blog….look forward to more wedding shots soon as my cousin and another of my best friends are getting married this summer!

Crusading Light

I know this first picture is really bad quality but I had to put it on to show you the start of my weekend on a boat in Norfolk. We drove down ‘Ferry Road’ which can easily be confused with ‘Fairy Road’ as some of us discovered…. It was literally marsh land with huge floods everywhere. We ditched the cars and jumped on board the boat we would stay on for the weekend. I say boat, it was a river cruiser – 12 beds, sitting room, kitchen, 4 bathrooms and a roof terrace……probably better than my house! We went away for our friend Lisa’s Birthday and we had a fantastic time, despite the torrential rain all weekend!The pub on the first night was literally just across the river! Below is our on board bar…Champagne was served for a Birthday toast on the upper deck – lovely!Here are some really pretty houses at the side of the river. When we looked in an estate agents during our lunch stop, these places go for £500,000 – £1,000,000! Lunch stop on dry land – fish and chips, scampi and chips, battered sausage and chips, everything delicious!We set up a BBQ on the lower deck to cook the delicious burgers from Lisa’s Dad’s butchers – devine!This is the outside view of the boat or the river cruiser – pretty spacious, no!?Breakfast on board followed by the men attempting to fish……
The maggots were left on the back of the boat and during the night there was a storm and they escaped from their box…… maggots were everywhere when we got up the next day, even some found in someone’s shoe!Maximum revs of 11,000……..consistently hit 20,000 throughout the weekend!Our spacious cabin! It was really cosy and we were next to the boats heating so we were nice and warm! Sorry about those in the front cabin where you had a roof window which leaked!Thank you for reading my blog! This picture below was what we found in a field by the river in the middle of nowhere. It is a takeaway menu and ordering service for I guess when times are hard!

We had a fantastic weekend despite the weather – all you need is good company, food and drink!

Primrose

Pizza followed by a stroll around Primrose Hill, London. We ended up standing at the top admiring the skyline!
A fantastic view from Primrose Hill, London. My best friends and I pose for a shot at the top!

50.7.PAIN

Last weekend I was involved in a charity bike ride around Hampshire. I went along with Superrb and Wonderland cakes to raise money for Alzheimers. We cycled 50 miles (which is a big deal for me as the most I have ever cycled is 3 miles!) We took around 7 hours which includes an hour break for lunch – much needed and about a twenty minute pub stop also. The day was such good fun and I am hoping to go back soon for more!We had a go on the tandem bike when we had finished, it was so hard to balance but it made us all laugh a lot!!We ended up in the health spa to relax and unwind for a few hours before heading back to the house for cocktails and nachos, a brilliant end to a hard day!

Rock Pebble Sand

At the weekend I went to Haying Island to go and stay with my brother who lives there. I went with my boyfriend to do a 50mile charity bike ride with the Superrb gang and Wonderland Cakes, see 50.7.PAIN. It was a fabulous weekend and here are the shots of the relaxing side of the trip…We went to go at see my brothers office……..

HB Karis

Last week we went out for my friend Karis’ birthday. We all met in Le Comptoir on Wigmore Street  for dinner. It is a Lebanese restaurant with a BYO drinks policy which is fantastic! The place was decorated so well and they made us feel so welcome. The food was delicious and even though our big group made quite a lot of noise, they put added extras onto peoples meals for free (bonus!)

It doesn’t suprise me when I look on their site as see all the awards they have won, the food was delicious and we had a fabulous evening there!

The food was delicious and everyone had huge portions which is always a bonus. We then went on to Green Carnation in Soho to have drinks and a boogie at the end of the night. All in all, lots of friends, good food and drinks meant it was a fantastic night!

I will end with a funny shot of my friends and I being silly. Captures a moment well!

As always, thank you for reading my blog!

Legal Art

 

Lower Marsh Tunnels – a place in London where graffiti is legal and so people come time and time again and create works of art. As we were there, a group a men came and covered up some previous work with cream paint and then they began to re-do the art. It was funny to watch as they didn’t speak to each other, they just seemed to know what to do or were happy that it would work out. The whole place is covered in graffiti literally everywhere you look – lights, bins, everything!

I had a bit of fun with my best friend taking some shots with the graffiti. What do you think?
