Saturday was one of the most hotly-anticipated events of the summer – Eddie Colburns 21st birthday garden party. Having known the Colburn clan for about 15 years it was expected to be a flamboyant bash, fit with hog roast and lamb, ice cream van and plentiful booze, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The shindig started around 4pm with people of all ages streaming into the garden and indulging in a drink or five. As the night went on, things picked up pace, guests got a bit more rowdy and the party spirit was in full flow. Me and Emily stumbled home about 12.30am and crawled into bed, praying the hangover would be kind to me in the morning. It was great to catch up with old chums and have a good giggle.
