Party, Prosecco and Pink Ladies – A Hen do in Manchester

So this weekend I got to join in the celebrations of the gorgeous bride-to-be Kirsty, as we partied all weekend for her hen do in Manchester. The weekend of fun and frivolities started on Friday, straight after work, when we all met at the City Warehouse Apartments – our home for the next 2 days.

With the bride-to-be in the Penthouse Suite, we also took over a few of the rooms on the next floor down – it felt like we were back in Halls of Residence, running between rooms, giggling and sneaking along the corridors. So Friday was about getting to know each other over a drink (or ten!), having a laugh and sharing our memories of of Kirsty and Lee. There were a few silly hen games, an incredibly thoughtful trip down memory-lane courtesy of the bride’s sister Lynsey, and even a special, one-night-only, comeback appearance by none other than the Moggy Mols!

Bubbles were sipped, pizza was quaffed (much needed!) and there was a lot of dancing! Thank you Mr Robin Thicke…hey hey hey!

An Evening of Hospitality at the 20/20 Cricket, Old Trafford

So last Wednesday, my hubby and I were lucky enough to be whisked off for a corporate evening of 20/20 cricket and hospitality at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground. It happened to be my birthday too, so things worked out nicely.

We were being hosted by a lovely group of gents, who welcomed us with open arms and an open bar. There was a fab buffet of grilled chicken, vegetable lasagne, roast potatoes and other goodies. Also cheese-boards and the most divine raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake. We certainly didn’t go hungry.
