Rather unusually for me I volunteered to be a designated driver. I hold a driving licence that allows me to drive bigger vehicles if needed. So, not knowing what bus was going to be available to hire, I thought I should put my hand up in case a normal licence was not able to be used. It turned out that a standard licence would have been fine, but I was happy to help out.
The party turned out great, with lots of fun, and only a few minor incidents of the sort that happen at these events (one bloke got drunk early and went home, and a girl dropped and broke a glass then cut her hand picking up the pieces).
Overall, a great event, and hopefully memorable for Maddie (though I don't think she realises just how much effort and money her Mum Erica invested in it all).
