Trina's Hen Do!!

Hi everyone - well here's the update on Trina's hen do!!  LOL that sounds funny if you say it quickly hen do LOL........ Sorry..........

First of the pics is the two little boys I'm looking after, soloman and dibley, bless them.........thought you'd like to see them :-)  I can rarely tell them apart so that should be fun LOL........Anyway onwards.........

Cat and I stayed at Trina's on the Friday night, Saturday morning we went shopping.  I don't do going out so needed something to wear.  Her workmates had decided that the theme should be cowgirls, but Trina and I decided to retaliate coz we couldn't think of a better theme, so we would go dressy!!  Well we'd still wear boots and jeans LOL........ So costumes were sorted, Cat had a nap, Trina had a shower and Wayne was picking his mum and cousin up so we just waited for people to arrive.  The cowboy hats that her workmates had brought were taken out of the bag they'd come in and Soloman had gone straight into the bag (pic 1) bless him LOL........

Becky, Trina's workmate turned up first.  She seemed nice and started pouring everyone a vodka and lemonade.  I didn't want one so passed the offer.  We all got changed and waited for the designated driver to arrive.  When he did get back he'd brought Maria (waynes cousin) and Shirley (waynes mum) with him, and they were dressed in full cow girl outfits.  They weren't amused when they saw us wearing nice tops.  But we were rebelling.................

First for the evening was a meal in Hooks.  So Wayne dropped Becky, Trina, Cat and myself down first and went back to get Maria and Shirley.  Photo opportunity taken (pics 3 and 4) and we decided to wait for Maria and Shirley outside.  Whilst we were waiting all Trina's workmates turned up.  (I would list their names but I can't remember them all), and they decided to go in and get drinks.  Lots of blokes walked in whilst we were waiting.  Eventually Wayne came back with Maria and Shirley so we all piled into Hooks.  We were shown to our table.  Beside us were two tables full of blokes!!  There was also another hen party in there.  Behind us there was a poster wishing various people happy birthdays and it even said 'Happy Hen Night Katrina' LOL.........you can see that in pic5!!

We all ordered food and some wine, which was going down far too easily!!  Trina and I were worried for ourselves we were getting extremely light headed and our meals hadn't arrived yet LOL.........There was a really cute bloke in there too, I just thought that should be mentioned.  At one point when Trina, Cat and I went to the bar, Right Said Fred's I'm too Sexy was playing and he walked past us singing it LOL........We were all like 'yes you are'..............

Once the food had gone past (which was very nice, I had cajun chicken :-)  Shirley commented that it didn't feel much like a hen night.  She's had much experience in hen night's so a small group of us decided that Trina should start doing dares.   First was to find the bloke whose birthday it was on the tables opposite and get him to kiss her.  Luckily she managed to catch him on his way to the loo LOL......Next she had to get someone's sock!!  Again from the blokes tables.  Apparently they thought she was asking for a snog LOL........She managed to complete it see pic 6 and the bloke told her she could keep it, which she did LOL.........Cat had still gone to the bar and brought Trina a chocolate flavoured Vodka, which she drunk.  The cute bloke then came up with the same drink and wished her a happy night.  Just for personal reasons I told her she had to get a pic with him.  So Cat took one (see pic 7)!!  Everyone decided it was time to move on - Weatherspoons here we come!!

We'd managed to pinch two balloons from Hooks and tied them to Trina's bunches :-)  We got into Weatherspoons but it was a tight squeeze as there were tons of people in there.  We got chatting to one bloke on the way in and he came and joined our group a bit later.  Apparently he was staying on one of the boats in the harbour - so he became known as boat bloke.  Cat found out he liked Queen LOL..........Thing was though he disappeared and we saw him with the other hen party group, then when we made more noise he came back LOL...........

Anyway more dares for Trina.  Shirley or Maria decided that Trina should ask to see some blokes tattoo.  She walked round the pub asking blokes if they had a tattoo and if they did could she see it.  First bunch said no.  Second bunch were hysterical............I can't even remember what started it but we all started chanting 'off' to them and they scarpered LOL...........it was soooooooo funny!!  Eventually some bloke showed her the tattoo on his arm!!  Weatherspoons was a bit boring so her workmates suggested we move onto Bar Med.

Outside Weatherspoons Trina had to complete another dare, ask the policeman for a kiss but she settled on a photo.  see pic 9.  Then someone said she had to get a kiss from the bus driver.  As we were walking up that way, some TWAT came along and purposefully popped one of Trina's balloons.  I couldn't believe it!!  Some nice bloke was gonna chase him and said that he was bang out of order for doing that - bless!!  Trina wasn't happy she'd lost one of her balloons!!  But she carried on like a trooper and climbed aboard the bus.  The bus driver told her to stand where she was and he took a pic of her on his mobile LOL.............She did get her kiss!!  When she came off the bus I said to her 'That'll keep him warm on long lonely cold nights' LOL...........She was freaked by that!!

We reached Bar Med and got in no probs!!  There were tons of blokes all dressed as women at the bar.  They were on a stag do, so a pic was taken of Trina and the stag LOL.........He had bigger breasts than me LOL..........We caught up with boat bloke again!!  He wished us a good night if he didn't see us again........and guess who else we bumped into.......only the blokes that had scarpered from Weatherspoons it was quite amusing.  Got some drinks and found her workmates and then everyone disappeared on the dancefloor.  I tried it but felt too self conscious.  Maria requested some music and told the DJ it was Trina's hen night.  He read it out and we made so much noise LOL.......she also got a free bottle of bubbly.........there were so many hen nights out that night it was unbelieveable.  The music wasn't so bad, a mixture of todays and mainly 80's stuff.   Shirley had a go at me for not dancing on the dancefloor so I went down there.  Just as I was getting into it, everyone decided it was time to move on!!  Her workmates said they were going to Route 66 but none of us knew where that was but we managed to catch up with them in town.  As Trina was saying goodbye to some of them, Cat and I started asking people if they were Roger Taylor (don't ask!!)  First bloke she asked he said yes!!  When we started going mad, he ran away LOL...........We'd followed a Brian lookalike across the street.  Found a bald bloke and called him John Deacon.  Another hen night went walking past and their dummy looked like Freddie, so Cat told them and they started singing I want to Break Free.  LOL.............All we needed now was a Paul Rodgers lookalike.  As we made our way to Route 66 Cat started shouting Paul.  I was expecting some random bloke to say what LOL............

Found Route 66 no problem, and started queueing.  There were some blokes in front of us and they asked if we would mingle with them.  Mainly coz they didn't think they would get in 9 blokes.  So we mingled.  Trina got chatting to the Aussie bloke and decided he was gonna be her stag and introduced him to Shirley his 'mum' LOL......it was funny coz he said 'hi mum'.............I got speaking to Dan and gave him my veil to wear, which he did for most of the night.  Aussie bloke (called antony) paid for Trina to get in!  Bless him :-)

It was such a good laugh in there but flippin' hot!!  First we queued for drinks and then Grease megamix came on and all the bar staff got up onto the bar and started dancing which was cool!!  (pic 11) Cat and I were dancing too (pic 12)  There were two podiums either side of the bar where anyone could go up!!  Usually it would be some woman with her knickers showing but pic 13 says not always!!  LOL.......  Every few songs the bar staff would be up again, it made me wanna work there.  Also every now and then the dj would ask if you wanted free tequila, and then would play terrovision's Tequila song.  If you wanted some you had to stand by the bar whilst the bar staff would spray you with it.  Shirley dragged Trina to get some LOL........Maria's feet were killing her by the time we got there so she sat down for most of the time (pic 14).  Shirley certainly enjoyed herself, I think she was more pissed than Trina or I LOL..........(pic 15)

Becky kept pouring Vodka into her smirnoff and as we were all drinking smirnoff it was hard to tell whose was whose by the end of it.  I must've had at least 4 sips of Becky's drink during the night grrrr........LOL...........Dan and Antony came past every now and then and one time Dan asked Cat for a dance, so I took a picture of it LOL (pic 20) Then they got up on the podium (Dan and Antony)  it was fantastic watching them up there, best part of the evening!!  LOL........As we were watching Trina, myself and Cat all felt an urge to go and join them but only Cat took up this idea!  She got told to come down though as it was a risk of some sort!!  (pic 24)

They gave an announcement about Trina's hen do but we kinda missed it and didn't make much noise!!  They played We Will Rock You, but didn't play Brian's guitar bit at the end.  They also played Bo Rhap!!  Cat and I suffered from neck ache for about 3 days afterwards.  We requested amarillo, they played a snippet and asked for the crowd to do a congo, which Trina and Cat started but eventually came back!  Unfortunately our enjoyment was coming to an end because Becky got herself in a state where she couldn't even stand up on her own.  Trina started to worry about getting her home but I tried to tell her, that it wasn't her problem!!  She was not responsible!!

Oh I forgot to mention the bloke who was very smartly dressed and kept walking past our table and clapping in our direction.  He then took each of our hands in turn and kissed them LOL........  I thought that was pretty cool........

End of the night and I went to get my veil back from Dan.  He'd gone and given it to the bar staff!!  We decided to say goodbye to them anyway and Antony gave Cat his address to email him the pictures we'd taken of them on the podium.  They were a really nice bunch of lads!!

We made our way back up to Debenhams were we were to wait for Wayne to pick us up.  By this time it was raining quite heavily!!  Trina found Becky with the remaining workmates and tried to get her sorted out.  By this time Wayne turned up, so Cat and I got into the car.  Trina was on the other side of the road so Wayne went to help!!   Whilst we were waiting Cat was like 'oh my god' I was like 'what' and turned round to see this bloke throwing punches to this car driver.  Apparently the car had run into him.  The police turned up then, it was quite interesting to watch!!

Wayne got back to the car and we were asked to move on, by this time Trina and the gang were crossing the road to the car, so we had to do a full circle.  It had been decided that Becky was staying at Jenny's.  So we had to give them both a lift home.  Nightmare!!  I wasn't sitting down properly and at one point I thought Wayne was gonna crash!!  Scary!!

We got back to Trina's and went to bed.  I was getting a headache but I didn't have a hangover.  :-)  What a great night!!
