I wished you were with me at that point more than anything in the world including knowing where my wellies were. Finally Pappa Peace called back a wee bit tipsy – they had been out but luckily Mamma Bear was designated driver and they were on their way over! When they arrived it was incredible….Mamma Bear took control of the troops and gave us clear orders as she entered the “danger zone”, she then went straight to the tap and with the strength of a war horse she turned it and stopped the water (in my head I was playing a dramatic theme tune to emphasise this glorious moment) Then we followed our commander upstairs where we started to work on Project: Damage limitation. It’s times like this where I just wanted to bow down to the awesomeness of Mums! Basically she had the presence of M off James Bond, all cool and collected but with a Bob the builder’s tool kit and Pappa Peace is more James May than Bond.
My Pops very kindly offered to pick me up…. This is something that hasn’t happened to me in at least 10 years and I have to admit I started feeling nervous as I realised how drunk I was… Called Pops to delay collection as pudding hadn’t been consumed and attempted to sound as sober as possible which got the following reply on the phone “Darling if you’re trying to sound sober it’s as good now as when you were 16!” Darn it that man was good!
