I tend to collect good advice, and spread it around when I can (although whether I listen to my own advice is debatable).

One such piece of advice is "Remember the compliments and forget the insults." Its a good one. Any time you are feeling down, or have been insulted it helps to remember that someone said you were funny, or pretty, or a good dancer.

I managed to get high praise indeed a few weeks ago (see Pandora 2.0. But another compliment, and ego-boost, has come out of that evening. One of the birthday girl's close friends is getting married in a few weeks time, and after meeting me as Pandora for the first time, has invited me to her hen night!

Fortunately its not going to be Ann Summers and strippers, but there will be drinking and dancing, and she might end the night handcuffed to a blow up doll ;-)

I've still got some time to think about it, consider the logistics, and make a definite decision, but I'm really looking forward to it. So much so, I've bought a new top and changed my hairstyle (pics to follow... maybe)

It's nice to hear a genuine compliment or hear thanks when you've given on. I think we brits are not very good with dealing with praise. It almost seems against our nature!

Good luck on the hen do! Perhaps those white stillies will come in once again. :)

Well, that's a hell of a compliment... :)
You absolutely HAVE to do this, but it would be a good idea to find out who else is going, as well...
Look. If you don't go, I'll have to strangle some kittens. It won't be easy, I'll cry as I do it.

**god I'm talking crap again, think the sleepies are kicking in**

Pandora Caitiff said...

Thank you both :)

And as to who is going, it looks like just a handful, and I know all of them. And more importantly, they all know me quite well.

And yeah, I think if I don't go I'll regret it more than if I do go and thinks turn out to be crap.

The white stillies are out though. My black patent heels are safer. They've got an ankle strap, and despite being 3" heels, I can run in them!

Opportunity of a lifetime! Take it!

You simply must go.
Think of those kittens.

...oh, Prince of Wales road, even in boy mode with a bloodied axe, is still not the place to go for a hen night.
