My Final Fling

My bridesmaids hosted me a lovely 'lady stag' aka Hen Do last weekend... 10 of my closest friends in a beautiful cottage located on the edge of the Peak District.

We all traveled up on the Friday morning to Alton Towers for a speed filled afternoon, some taking more enjoyment from the massive roller coasters than others.  They made everyone a t-shirt Saying Team Gainey and their nicknames!  Mine had Mrs Hopwood on the back :-)

We then traveled onto the cottage, sorted out...received gift bags, containing goodies, hangover cures and bridey stuff for me to wear!

The bubbles were opened and we pilled into the hot tub, watching the lambs frolic in the sunset (how perfect!).  Later that night we had a lovely dinner cooked by the bridesmaids and played a few games before heading to bed.

Saturday morning we enjoyed a lazy breakfast then headed onto the surprise activity of Go Ape.  A day spent climbing and zip lining around the forest.  So much fun, but pretty scarry.

We then stopped to grab lunch and head back to the hot tub!!  Our last night was spent eating, drinking, dressing up and playing drinking games.

Our final morning Sunday, was another lazy breakfast.  Then an afternoon in the pub before heading home.  

So much fun, all great friends and over way to quickly!!  I couldn't ask for better friends.

The Mrs Box!

I found a picture of these before I even knew what they were and added it to my wedding Pinterest page... several months later I am finally the owner of my very own The Mrs Box.

A small but perfectly formed vintage velvet ring box... and they are all limited edition due to the French velvet used to make each one.
