Finding a weekend to stay at home and enjoy Crumpet Cottage has proven difficult this summer. It is the age of the wedding in our lives – and with weddings come hen parties! (here’s one from earlier in the summer)

A hen that eschews raucous and expensive city breaks, that would rather have a flower in her hair than a neon willy strapped to her head, deserves a special momento for her last day/night of freedom.

After one too many crafty efforts going unnoticed, I now only hand-make gifts for those treasured friends who really deserve them. I knew this small token would be appreciated and I could cluck with pride at having put a large smile on a hen’s face.
