The biggest surprise of my life!
Hope you’re all well.
My amazing friend Jojo organised for a surprise party for me last weekend and I’m still not quite over the shock! I was absolutely speechless and it was without a doubt the biggest surprise of my life. She did so well to pull it off. I’m a bit of a detective and can normally piece things together but I didn’t have the slightest inkling. Our management team were in on it as well and I was under the illusion that we were performing a gig.
We’d been told to dress quite smartly because we had a meet and greet with corporate people beforehand so we needed to be presentable â€“ but it turned out there was no gig and it was actually a girls’ night out. I met Jojo through Ben and she was my maid of honour. Most of the people who had been at my hen party were there so it was a bit like a hen party part two.
We started off in Bodo Schloss and had a lovely meal there before going to Mahiki for some cocktails and dancing. We took over the karaoke room and it was brilliant. Vanessa and Mollie came along but Frankie and Rochelle couldn’t make it because they were with their babies â€“ which of course I totally understand.
Time with your children is really precious to us Sats mums. It was a late one and I got in at about 4:30am which any mum will know is a bit of a rarity. I spent Sunday chilling with my family who had come over from Ireland â€“ I really love having a full house.
My sister Dee and my two cousins came over for the weekend. We all grew up together and are still really close so it was great to spend quality time with them. Their visits were very well timed because I was having a wardrobe clear out so they left with their cases full of with clothes. They love coming and raiding my wardrobe and I’m always glad to have a sort out because I find it very therapeutic. If there’s anything that my friends or family don’t want I make sure it goes to charity.
The Sats get given quite a lot of clothes from PR companies and the novelty never wears off. It’s like Christmas when we find out that a box has arrived and they usually send great dresses and outfits. I tend to buy bigger items like coats and bags myself though.
Speak to you all soon.
Lots of love Una xxxx
