This post is in collocation with giffgaff but as always the opinions in this post are 100% my own :)*

The older I get, the more I realise it’s hard to keep in touch and see your friends as much as you would like. Busy schedules, work and other things can get in the way of spending time with your pals.  I’m lucky, with my friendship group, it could be months that pass but once we all get together it’s like no time had passed at all. I speak to my friends every day, but it’s the face to face, hanging out interaction that’s a little bit tricky.

The guys over at giffgaff very kindly sent me over some goodies to host my very own games day so I could reconnect with my bestest pals! The box included:
  • An Amazon echo - perfect to play a party playlist
  • A Go Pro - this would have been perfect to film the day but I was silly and totally forgot to pick up a nano sim card
  • A £50 just eat voucher - a dream
  • A winners trophy
  • 3 x board games 
  • 5 giffgaff pre-loaded sims
  • Anker USB plug charger
Basically everything I needed to host the perfect games day!


As we’re in he spookiest month of the year, I decided to Halloween the games day up with a few decorations [all my own FYI] No BFF gathering is complete without snacks so I went out and picked up some snacks and waited for the guests of honour to arrive.

It’s been a while since I’ve hosted anything so it was great to have everyone round again and it was also great to be given the “tools” as it were to host a successful hang out. Using the JustEat voucher we ordered a mountain of vegan pizza from Papa Johns - for real their vegan pizza is lyf, 10000% recommend. After demolishing it all it was time to crack out the games I’d been sent. I think the collective favourite was the Bucket of Doom - some very tongue in cheek outcomes can be made with that, well worth a play, with weird things humans search for being a very close second. We didn’t get round to playing Obama Llama 2 as we were so engrossed in the other two - just means we will have to arrange another day to give it a go. With the box of goodies gifted, it really helped with hosting a successful games night! We also really enjoyed using the Amazon echo to take it in turns to play our favourite songs - fully loving having an Echo, they’re ace!

Hosting the games day made me realise just how important and good for the soul it is just to hang out with your friends, laugh and catch up and I’m so pleased we were able to all get together - it’s nearly impossible for us all to be able to get together, altogether. I’ve had a really pants few weeks BUT being able to spend some quality time with my favorite people, really helped with that. We’ve now vowed to make this a monthly hang out which I am thrilled about, it’s so important to make time for you friends and have some good wholesome fun - thank you giffgaff for providing just that for me and my best friends - we really had a wonderful day!
