Lindsey’s “Hag” weekend

This weekend I travelled up to Liverpool to attend Lindsey (and her fiancee’s) combined stag and hen party.

The drive up there was a bit of a pain as the M6 from junction 14 to 19 was, well, intermittent is probably the best word to use. Sometimes it was a road at others it was merely a car park. Anyway, I finally arrived at about 3pm on Saturday.

It was a fun evening, mostly due to Lindsey’s friend Janey who made a great effort with fun and games, though nothing debauched. We all finally got to bed by 3am.

Sunday morning started around 9am with a trip down to a park for “whiskey and doughnuts” where we got thoroughly chilled by the brisk breeze.

Following more natter in the basement and a visit to a local Subway sandwich shop it was time to come home again.

Today I’ve been recovering from all the driving and the lack of sleep. I managed to make it through the morning, driving to Banbury to buy some replacement ADSL line filters and visiting Sainsbury’s, but this afternoon instead of attacking the garden I just crashed on my bed and slept for a couple of hours straight.

Anyway, I think I’ll start attacking the garden tomorrow evening instead and have an early night tonight.

    • Traditionally, the bride to be has a night out celebrating the final period when she’s a “free” woman (the Hen night/party) and similarly the groom to be does the same (the Stag party/night).

      It was also traditional that the bride to be went out with her female friends and had a somewhat debauched time and the groom to be went out with his male friends and did the same.

      The bounderies seem in all the cases I’ve come across recently to have been rather blurred. The last Stag do I went on had female friends as well as male, and this time the couple decided to have a combined event, which seems to be defeating the point somewhat. Oh well.

      It was a fun party anyway.
