How was your weekend? Mine was FANTASTIC!
Along with 18 other ladies (some of whom i'd never met) I went to Manchester for a great friends hen weekend. We arrived on Friday and stayed at the Midland Hotel. A beautiful hotel which even had a doorman in a top hat! I've stayed at a few hotels before but this was by far the nicest and classiest!
For the Friday night it was pretty tame, out for a few drinks, followed by a meal at the Rustica Italian restaurant, followed by a few more drinks. On Saturday after a great cooked breakfast we headed off to Vibe recording studio. 19 girls screeching 'It's raining men' and 'I wanna dance with somebody' is a mad experience. Kudos to the recording guy, he managed to make it sound pretty good!
After some proper food (burger and chips) in the Rain Bar we got ourselves all dressed up for a proper night out.
Dress code was glam black dress and the hen was to wear a red dress, we then got sashes and tiaras and stepped out in style. Complete with our 'friend' Jon!
So where did we go in all our finery? The Birdcage! If you've never heard of this place you should definitely check it out. The drag acts are amazing!
We had our own tables reserved and the drinks flowed whilst we watched the entertainment. It was a brilliant night which was finished off at about 3.30am as we stumbled back into the hotel clutching our shoes in one hand and a McDonalds in the other!
After what was an expensive, alcohol fueled weekend i'm feeling a little fragile today so I have nothing handmade to offer for Handmade Monday but i'm on my way over to Wendy's blog to check out what everyone else has been up to.
Have a great week,
Until next time
