Clare's Hen Do

Clare, is now married. But before that occurred we all bid farewell to her unmarried years with the traditional hen-do. It was amazing! We all gathered in Bath in a lovely house we had for the weekend.

And our first Friday night was a bit of a sleepover with pizza and girly chat, and some tasty beverages!

We woke up bright and early to visit Bath's Thermae Spa, for which I have no pictures because we were busy swimming in the roof top pool and relaxing in the steam rooms! And after that, we went to one of Bath's oldest houses for tea, Sally Lunn's.

And then we took a boat...

Now, punting was not something I'd ever really thought of as a hen-do activity before, and I'll admit, that I had my misgivings, but honestly, you add champagne to most activities and you will find they're pretty fun.

Even if you are driving! Or, as we decided to label it, 'Puntress', for the afternoon.

Although, drinking and driving will inevitably lead to accidents, no matter the vehicle.

There's a tree there, guys.

I readily admit that this quickly became my favourite part of the weekend. Punting in Bath, do it! But bring bubbly!

We had a full night planned following the punting, but luckily, some scheduled downtime was available inbetween, so some half-cut hens and the bride to be chilled out in front of a movie.

Which meant that we were well rested, and suitably excited for the evening events...

It may be very delayed but there's something to be said about being behind on my posts, it's very fun to reminisce and look back through the pictures! Next hen party I will be on is my own...now THAT'S scary.
