Moulin Rouge May 13, 2009

So at the weekend I went away with some girlfriends for a friend-of-a-friends hen do. The theme was Moulin Rouge, the destination, Butlins Skegness!


Oh what a lovely place… the last time I went there I was 7 or 8, my brother got mumps, we stayed one night in a little chalet & came home again. Not really a success. This time I’m 31 & going with my girlfriends… two of my best friends, Claire & Jo, a couple of old schoolfriends, Rachael, Cally & Neelam and some other friends that make up our group.


We had such a great time! We got there late Friday night but had some wine, got changed & headed off out anyway & discovered that the rest of Butlins was incredibly drunk & somewhat aggressive but despite this we had a good time & danced til the wee hours.

Saturday we went down to the (sandy) beach for a paddle. We found about 5 washed up crabs, some fossils & lots of sea shells. Unfortunately nobody took their camera! James (our gay friend & only guy on the hen weekend) bought me pink candyfloss. He’s adorable!


James with Claire, Cally & Chrissie. Posers!

Saturday night we got dressed up again, had more wine & headed out to see Chesney Hawkes… remember him?!


We’ve decided that we will all hook up at least once a year from now on as we all live in different parts of the country but we won’t be going back to Butlins! We had fun but its really not our scene. 2010 is looking like a cottage in the Lake District…. can’t wait!
