We finally arrive at Stockport station and walk to the Park with an Owl. The humble abode of Alan and Zoe.
I go and get the car, whilst the busily head indoors to get the amazing amount of camping gear they have decided to bring with them.
Whilst loading I inspect how their sunflowers are doing. Interesting the ants had been utilising them to their fullest. They didn’t seem to be eating the plants but they seemed to be stashing lots of black eggs everywhere.
About an hour later we had reached the Waggon & Horses and could see the gathering of the masses had started well before us.
Up went up Tenby tent and on went the fairy lights.
Birthday girl seemed very happy and out came the giant Jenga.
And the fun began
The tower getting taller
and more wobbly by every persons turn.
Things got tricky at times.
But still the tower grew until, bang it fell.
Birthday girl put it back up.
And off we went again.
ooooohhh it wobbled.
Oh the fun to be had in field full of fun loving people and
drinks. Now lets go through these. Zoe’s beer is on the left. Nacks beer is in the middle. Who on earth is having that Del Boy Cocktail.
Only Mr Arse could have ordered that.
And with the arty drinks comes out the poi's.
Making at all look so simple.
And with a blink of the eye dusk has come.
The fairy lights have come on
And the firestarters have come out.
Brightening the park area up.
Alan stares at the stars, all those cocktails have gone to his head.
And then Zoe has a go.
And I stand back.
Whilst Sara does her best at burning her hair.
As things got cold outside the party went on indoors and the divine karaoke singing started with some really good 80’s numbers.
Alan however had other ideas. And as Gary aslett knows
you should never, ever, never, ever, never, ever put a tambourine in the hands of Nack.
And so it was taken off him.
And with every blink nack took, they got longer and longer and longer. And each time Alan and Zoe where pulling funny moves at him.
And then I opened my eyes to the last blink I did, to find a crowd of people with their phones out taking a picture of me. For me it was time for bed, for everyone else the part was not over yet.
