The party itself was fun. It was good to see some of the people I'd met before the last time I was invited down there, and also good to drink vast quantities of wine. Of course this led to a Saturday where I didn't rise until three in the afternoon - only because a friend's text message vibrated my trousers until I couldn't ignore it any longer. Due to fragility we didn't leave Colchester until seven pm and the rest of the weekend was a complete writeoff.
Plans to go to the pub on Sunday were curtailed somewhat due to a certain excessiveness. I'm just glad that was the only reason for Panda's flushed face and odd behaviour.
