The Hen Party

Thank you to my friend Debbie who made me the graphic 'Hen party '

Well after a cold drab week ,last Saturday dawned bright and sunny ,We all met up out side the Key Theatre in Peterborough ,which is set on the Nene embankment ,ready for our Nene cruise at 7.30 pm,everyone was there except Vickie ,who still didnt know any thing about this ,I had done a journal entry ,about the plan ! fortunately Vickie didnt read it ,phew I could have blown it ! good job you all kept the secret !,Though when we were talking about it Bob heard us ,and said he'd read it ! apparently he had googled river trips or hen partys or something ,and there was my journal entry ,he said he read it ,gosh you dont know who is reading you, do you ?

Any way Vickie arrived blindfolded,and led by her hairdresser who had driven her around the town ,just to confuse her ! When they took of the blind fold Ithink she thought she was going to the theatre ! Any way we all went on board ,and had a lovely trip up the river Nene ,what a lovely evening ,lots of lovely food on board ,there was a bar ,and music,and lots to see ,It was particurly nice for me to be out with my daughters,The trip lasted about two and a half hours and it went so quickly and was enjoyed by all of us ,Of course the youngsters all went into town and the clubs ,but Sharon Kate and I went back to Kates ,where after a coffee... Maurice and I came home  through eery Fen misty fog ,after a hot day ,this isnt unusual along the fen roads ,So now the next thing is the wedding we are going to stay in Peterborough ,on Friday and Saturday night ,so think about us at three o clock ,on Saturday afternoon ,and I will be back hopefully with pictures and to tell you all about Stuart and Vickies wedding ,lots of love Jan xx

With thanks to Donna for this one .....

hello Jan,
just read your entry about the Hen party - what a lovely time you must have had. My husband and I got married forty five years ago on Saturday..........at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. So I shall certainly think of you all at that time - and wish them as happy a marriage as we have enjoyed.
all best wishes to you all ..........from the other Jan.

Hello Jan,

I loved the pictures and graphics in theis entry, they are wonderful. It sounds as if you had a wonderful time on the boat. I love boat rides, they are so tranquil and relaxing, if we have the weather for it, of course!

I have not recieved Alerts for your journal for a while. I think Alerts have been playing up. I wondered why there had not been a post...

Best wishes,
Leigh :o)
