The Windmill

A few weeks ago we stayed in a windmill for my friend Helen’s hen weekend. A windmill. A windmill! 😀 😀 😀 Lots of fun was had.  The windmill is in Crosby, and it is amazing! I could quite fancy myself living in one. I would highly recommend a stay, especially if you’re in a large group. You can find all the details here, and we got some photos.

There was loads of relaxing downtime – pampering, champagne, food, the seaside… Aaah, that’s the life.

And there was lots of hilarious silliness. Surprise Doctor Who party, anyone? Including the most amazing surprise TARDIS costume for Helen, who looked a-maze-ing! And we have to give a shout out to Cat, who spent all night in that Dalek costume.  And of course, there was obligatory game-playing. SingStar, and Cards Against Humanity (not for the faint of heart!).

We even had some time to get a bit creative. We made bracelets, painted shot glasses, made a Pin the ‘Tache on the Darrin game (Darrin is the groom, and he has a spectacular moustache!), and I found time to do a bit of my Attic 24 Cosy Stripe blanket.  I didn’t do any sewing (obviously), but Rachel and I did coincidentally take identical PJs.  Well, not identical, but we used the same pattern to make them – the Margot PJs pattern from Tilly Walnes’ Love at First Stitch.

So much fun in a really lovely setting! Exactly my kind of hen weekend.  Thanks to all involved for such a fun time 😀

And next week, Helen and Darrin will be married!  Huge congratulations to you both, we’re over the moon for you!
