Listen, up front I’ve got to say that I’m not a fan of the Stag and Hen rituals, at least those popularised as the wildest default of debauchery.

From my inhibited straight-jacket of innocuous integrity, I’d rather go for some fun that remained respectful to my fiancée and future wife, and some good times that I’ll actually remember.

My tame Stag weekend is now over and what a fantastic time I have had with my closest and dearest. Following Carmel’s Hens against Humanity party of the previous weekend, I set off with my two sons, Connor and Cameron, to Sherwood Center Parcs for a weekend of chill, fun activities, food and drink and good times. We rendezvoused with bro-in-law Ross on Friday and my brother James on Sunday.

A weekend to remember, celebrating my future with lovely Carmel, accompanied by my closest who want the best for both of us.

Good times.
