    With one week to go, my MOH is fit to explode.
    Four people still haven't replied, but are telling my colleague that they're going.
    I bought a dress though!!! Now I just have a week to get it altered to fit me.

    I was planning on going to a local dressmaker to get my hen outfit altered today, but we had to wait in for the pc repair guy, and he didn't turn up till 6pm.
    I can't see me getting it done in time now, so my MOH has offered to buy the dress from me, or change it for one she was planning to wear herself.
    If that fails, I'll probably wear a skirt I've had for ten years.
    I'm a little more excited about the whole thing now, even though some people on the guest list are being a real pain to my MOH.
    How did going out or dinner get so complicated??

    Annoying about the pc repair guy coming so late in the day. Glad you're looking forward to it a bit more and I hope the irritating people are nicer to moh on the night. I suggest an electric cattle prod and if they start being annoying, zap them! :angry:

    People are such pains in the butt aren't they!!!

    My night went well, I hate veils and L plates etc too. Luckily I ended up with one balloon which I was happy with! We had a lovely meal then on to a bar for the rest of the evening. We did have quite a few to drink but certainly weren't laddette types (don't worry vhc), we danced and chatted a lot! My friend did make up a questionnaire about Spence for me to answer and picture boards where I had to guess which pic was of one of Spences' body parts (all clean, nothing saucy).

    Must admit, mine didn't feel like a hen do, don't know whether it was just me or not. It just felt like meeting up with the girls for a get together (although all wearing headwear of sorts), I never go out usually so maybe it just felt a bit strange due to that.....?

    Glad you had a good time Julia! In my opinion it would be a good thing for it to not feel like a hen do, but that's just me :)

    My hen is to tomorrow, after my first proper dress fitting, and I really can't get into the spirit of it. Russ and I shed a few tears for the loss of our poor puppy tonight, and the idea of celebrating just doesn't seem right. Maybe I'll snap into it tomorrow.

    It was a good night thank you.
    I started off at my MOH's Mum's house for drinks and nibbles, with my Mum and my MOH's family. The sun managed to come out, and we sat out in the garden.

    Then we went to one of my favourite restaurants in town. We ate 2 courses, then the owner brought out a plate of cupcakes that my MOH's sister had made for us all.
    It was supposed to be a surprise, but my colleague (the one who caused all the hassles), let the cat out of the bag at work.

    There was a definite divide on the table. The work lot kept to themselves and my family all sat at the other, but I think everyone had a good time.

    Towards the end of the meal, my colleague announced that she'd arranged for a lock in for all of us at her local pub, where the guitarist from my favourite (and closed down) pub had been playing all night.
    The last thing I wanted to do was go to a grubby, working man's pub dressed up in my best outfit. Yet again, she completely misunderstood the sort of evening I wanted.
    It was really nice of her to try and do something for me, but she had taken it for granted that I would want to go, and then had to leave herself so as not to lose face with the landlady of the pub.
    She even rang my mobile about half an hour after we'd left, so I'm guessing she thought she could change my mind.
    Ah well, all I know is that I have a raging headache this morning, and a huge spot on my chin!

    Russ had his stag do today. They are all going go-karting, then off for drinks in Bournemouth.
    He's so excited!
