Drying Out.........

I am drying out from a very boozy weekend.


MWM and I decided to walk up to the pub on Friday night, they have a deal on Pizza and a Pint for £4.95 so we thought that'll do instead of me cooking. Unfortunately when we got there they weren't doing food because they'd got an 18th birthday party booked in. MWM got us a drink and one led to another, and another so we ended up dining on a packet of crisps and plenty of booze! We 'think' we got home about 11 p.m. but couldn't swear to it!


Saturday night we were invited to a Silver Wedding celebration at our local club, which was very crowded and very noisy, and there was nowhere to sit so we retired to the other room where there was a very good singer and enjoyed another boozy night.


On Sunday evening myself, my friend and her daughter went to the MEN Arena in Manchester to see Shayne Ward in his 'Breathless Tour'. Shayne was the winner of X Factor in 2005 and is a Manchester lad so you can imagine the reception he got from his home town. Here's the boy himself, isn't he gorgeous, eye candy and a great voice too!





You can hear Shayne's latest single 'Breathless' here.

After the gig we got a taxi back to our club to meet up with the boys and have a dance to a great duo who were playing there, of course there was booze!


It was 'War Weekend' on the East Lancs Railway this weekend so that's where we went yesterday. I did a post about this regular event here if you want to read more about it. We caught the train to Ramsbottom (I know it's a strange name!) where we had lunch in a pub but we had coffee with it honestly. We then got the train back to Bury where we went in the Trackside pub - yes this is where we started drinking! We only had a couple in there then got the train back home where we called in the same pub we'd visited Friday night and left there about 9.30 p.m. for home, where we watched 'Wild Hogs' starring John Travolta - it's a great film I can recommend it if you haven't watched it yet.


I bet you all think we have a drink problem now don't you? Well we haven't I can assure you, it's just that Bank Holiday weekend here it's traditional to let your hair down and we won't be having another drink now until next weekend honest -it's tea and water for the rest of this week.

There are probably more of us out here that have done a similar 3 day party- I've done even worse!

Sounds like lots of fun … especially compared to my overly busy schedule at the moment. I’m glad you’re enjoying yourself ‘partying’ in this manner ;--)

People have been complaining that it’s hard to comment on Small Reflections and as I waited for YOUR comment box to FINALLY come up (after more than a couple of minutes) I found myself wondering if Blogger’s having issues … or if it’s something unique to your blog and mine (along with a few others I've encountered that seem
V E R Y S L O W?
Hugs and blessings,

girl with the mask said...

Hungover much?

Akelamalu said...

It was but I couldn't do it every weekend James!

Yes Marjolein there is that about it. Thanks for dropping by. :)

You're right Dianne, recovery is a bitch!

I like to party 'occasionally' Storyteller :) I haven't noticed your comments box taking a long time to comment, I'll let you know next time I visit.

More tired than hungover GIM ;)

Dave said...

Having fun is a good thing and having a good time with people you love is the best. I know you do not have a drinking problem. All the booze seemed to get inside of you. NO PROBLEM there.

LOL

Casdok said...

Sounds like a great weekend!! Hope your liver recovers!

CrazyCath said...

Sounds like you had a lot of fun. And Shane seems to go from strength to strength...

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

You answered the question I was developing in my mind with you final paragraph.

P.S. ~ I so wish I could join in one of your weekends!

Jeff B said...

Holy crap, if you died today your body would be well preserved for many years to come with all that booze in your system!

Akelamalu said...

LOL you reminded me of that old joke Dave "I don't have a drink problem, I drink, fall down, no problem!" I'm not that bad honestly. ;)

I'm drinking water like it's going out of fashion to help my liver Casdok!

Yes Cath Shayne is doing really well.

If you ever get to visit the north of England Nick we'll have a special bank holiday weekend just for you. x

Funny you should say that Jeff folks say I'm well preserved for my age! ;)
