The amazing hen night 🦈

Or bachelorette party, depending on where you’re from.

Kadek took me to Sealife London, where they hold an event where you get to drink alcohol and go around the aquarium in the night time, no children allowed!

We were given an incredibly fancy room by the hotel. The mattress was so dang thick that it was literally the height of a table for me and climbing onto it was quite an adventure. I loved being able to not only watch live TV (although the subtitle function didn’t work), but watch the Horror channel in particular! Also Judge Judy on CBS Reality!

The bummer of the trip was that there was a woman storing her folding rollator in the wheelchair space on the train, but she didn’t want to fold it, she left it completely assembled, and so I had to sit literally in the middle of the aisle, the bit where people walked, and it was a bit of a nightmare.

I envisioned carrying my holdall around on my lap, and while this did work, it was harder than I expected on my left bicep, which is just insisting on giving me a sharp pain every time I move it.

Also my butt and thigh muscles ridiculously hurt, I can only imagine this is from sitting upright for so long in one go during both train journeys, and using my muscles to resist all the bumps and shaking. We did way too much travelling in a 24-hour period and I am legitimately exhausted, but I had a really good time.

[PS: After looking at the preview of this post, it seems that some pictures have turned themselves upside down or on their sides. I don’t know why.]

The hotel gave us wine!

But we had a lot of alcool anyway.

Dat view. I made the most of sitting in the windowsill like a wistful movie character.

Prosecco at the aquarium. I don’t really like prosecco but that’s what they give you.

Spoopy green light.

Spiky lobster.

Fluffy suction butthole a.k.a. sea urchin. They are apparently quite complicated on the inside.

Noodley nose.

Some of these looked a bit foreskin-y.

There were lots of cartoon pictures of animals looking sad about flash photography.

Trop mysterieux.

A happier cartoon.

I suppose you don’t really imagine starfish eating things.

No thank you sir.

I really like this.

I love seahorses soooooo much. I only wish there were some that were as big as land horses.

Droopy doofs.

This big flat man was my favourite, he seems to be some kind of Angelshark and I am in love with him!

Cockatoo Waspfish. Who came up with this absolute clusterfuck of fish naming.

Foxface Rabbitfish as well, I mean seriously.

Probably not like the bit of textured wood you had on the wall.

It hissed at me.

Apparently we have moderate stingers here. R.I.P. the Isle of Wight also.

A very nice hotel pizza.

A useful lamp!

This view was beautiful but there came a point in the early hours when I did shut the curtains because it was too bright to sleep.

My gift shop treasure. The magnet is now on the fridge, the keyring is a zip-pull on my darker green jacket, and the gorgeous plush seahorse lives on my sofa, and is currently name Hen Night Horse.

I love souvenirs!

Not enough sleep.

An birb. They could have put a railing up and made this SUCH a good balcony.

Here are some better quality photos that I stole from Kadek:

I love how they become these little floating sticks when they move between things.

Back in Andover, we detoured to the Lidl to pick up some cool shit we saw advertised on TV at the hotel.

Kadek also went over my roots with more henna. I am a natural redhead but I want to be a bit brighter for upcoming events.

Henna anew.

Terrorist rockets into Israel kind of ruined the trip.

20181028_173850

As well as a barrage of rocket attacks into Israel, 11 Jews were murdered at a synagogue in the USA this weekend. I’m so tired of feeling that sting of grief all the time 🕎🛐.

Bucket list
The pressure of bucket list items I can either complete in the very near future or fail at entirely.
