We gathered in Devon and the afternoon began with lunch at Jack in the Green - and lunch ended with bitter chocolate torte and raspberry sorbet for the girls and lemon meringue for me.
Fiancée and I had roast beef for the main course - we decided we'd go for pudding instead of starters! -while Daughter had salt and pepper tofu with oriental coleslaw - the smallest main course I think I have ever seen! (Although she said it tasted yummy.)
Then it was back home for an afternoon crafting.
The finished product.
What's missing, of course, is a photo of me sewing: it's not something you'll often see! But I did my bit! The material we used has shells, seaweed and starfish on it to fit in with the marine theme of the wedding.
While sewing we enjoyed afternoon cakes, made by Daughter, with some help from Granddaughter - or at least help licking the bowl clean. Including a toast of elderflower presse and some lovely words from Daughter.
Then we rounded off the day with the dvd of We Bought a Zoo, very apt as Fiancée works in Paignton Zoo.
So not your average Hen Do but very enjoyable - at least I enjoyed it and I think Fiancée did too.
