$200 is a rip. people can't afford that these days. it should be about getting together and having fun, not throwing money in the name of some overhyped event.
this is why I hate hens/bucks/showers etc. they lose their meaning!
just do a classy high tea and be done with it. what exactly does she have in mind for $200 per person!?

she sounds like dh's sil...expects everyone to hand over cash when it comes to her but she always puts on the scabbiest and stingy stuff. wouldn't cross the road for someone else but thinks everyone owes her something. the age of entitlement is over honey!!

I certainly can't afford it! I can barely afford $100, that's why I'm thinking I may have to pass on going but my budget never stretches that far.

I'm the only one having to fly for it so I don't think she really sees that. I've got another 2 weddings next year to go to as well so I'll have to compromise.

it is supposed to be a fun event, held in the good spirit of the upcoming wedding, for friends to get together and just have fun before the bride to be says I do. why does it always have to turn into such a fiasco!?
my friend put a little bachelorette weekend on for me in Sydney as I have no close female friends or family where I am. I was happy to fly over on cheap flights and she put on a high tea at a lovely venue for me. we went out that night in the city then out for a few wines then home. it was just a relaxed but fun girly weekend. no fuss or carry on (as I hate fuss and carry on).
I've helped organize kitchen teas etc in the past and the bride to be always has really stupid demands and ideas and just expects everyone to make planning the event their fulltime job.
I don't know, I think people have just gone generally a bit silly these days 😝

There's a bird in the roof 😑 juuuust great.
And the house is freezing so went to turn the heater on and it flicked the safety switch. So now the house is freezing, not much warmer outside and if I try n turn the heater on I have no power? What a great day!

And the heater is stuffed 😑 thankfully it's not the middle of winter but would be nice to feel warm! DS and I will be rugging up tonight. Dp drove 20 minutes to town to buy a new fuse (after realising one had blown in the heater) put it in and fuse blows and power goes out. I'm completely out of ideas. I really don't have the money to call someone out next week to look at it. Would I need a plumber or electrician? 😕 or someone completely different? Whyyyyyy?!
And to make it worse Dp said he found a MASSIVE rats tail up there. Apparently really old but he said it was MASSIVE! How bloody gross!
