Vive España (Part 2)

Tomorrow I’m off to Spain. Not to congratulate the team in person on their football win, but for my sister’s hen do.

Our destination isn’t Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville or any other place that I’d have welcome the chance to go to. Our destination is the Costa del Sol.

Months ago when it was being planned, my sister’s opening line about it was “Now I know this won’t be your kind of thing but…” Of course, I was always going to go, although jokingly I did say that I couldn’t guarantee that I would enjoy myself.

I was looking forward to it (you’ll notice the use of the past tense here). A few days in the sun with my sisters (and a few complete strangers) sounded quite nice. Even on the Costa del Sol, I should be able to have sangria and tapas.

Then last week, my sister informs me that she has had some t-shirts printed with “D’s Hen Do 2008” and mine has the word “Bridesmaid” on the back. I questioned the need for the year on the t-shirt as it implied that it might be an annual event but they had already gone to print. Apparently we are all wearing our t-shirts on the journey. “At least you won’t get lost”, smirked the OH.

I remember a couple of years ago seeing an entire wedding party of about 50 people in the check in at Gatwick and everyone had a matching t-shirt on with their role on their back (mother of the bride, bride's father, bridesmaid's husband, bride's best friend etc etc) it was a bit grim...

I'm sure it'll be good fun though once the amazing recuperative powers of sunshine and sangria kick in!

*sigh*

I'm sure you'll have fun - you could always rebel and refuse the t-shirt...or maybe not.

Lots of sympathy for you honey. I'll be thinking of you.

Its Saturday. Grey and drizzly. I hope you've got a slightly sore head and are working your way through the hair of the dog in the sunshine.
