At the weekend i went to Leeds for James sisters hen/birthday weekend and i thought i would share with you all.
We stayed in the Leeds Travel Lodge, which was grimy to say the last but there were beds, showers and a bar open until 4am - for £20 you cant complain.
I organised a scavenger hunt for everyone, i made little cards and each one had a clue to somewhere and a task to fulfil. The girls had to follow these clues, riddles and challenges which led them around Leeds city centre and do silly tasks.
These included buying sweetcorn from Leeds Market, going to the Corn Exchange, Leeds Town Hall, buying tights, cupcakes, red lipstick, wearing masks, getting photos taken in certain poses and visiting harvey nicks and trying on some very expensive clothing and getting photographic proof (we nearly got chucked out).

We went to Tiger Tiger for a yummy meal, i had Thai Green Curry which was seriously lush.
We then went for a session of karaoke at a Chinese/bar/karaoke place.

The venue was bizarre, the decor looked more like a room from a brothel than a kareoke booth - there were lots of Chinese songs and the words were badly translated, but this made it even more fun, drinks were super cheap. We had all the obvious hen party tack which i had bought for everyone so we spent the night drinking cheap and nasty vodka cocktails out of penis straws, as you do. I would recommend visiting OK karaoke rather than this place to you all if you fancy a classier experience hehe.
We then went to Revolution on call lane and got cocktails which was packed and we all fancied a dance, so off we went to the gay bar Queens court, this was fabulous we got the chance to have a boogie with lots of young gay dancers (they have some serious energy!). I used to visit here quite often in my uni days, i am your typical fag hag, i have far too many crazy gay friends.
We were exhausted after the days scavenger hunt antics and sore feet cut our night out short - sorry for that ladies!
We had a fabulous time though and it was so nice to have a girlie weekend, i have not had one in so long. I spent the day on Sunday gardening and raking leaves - not very glamorous.
Did you do anything fun this weekend?
