Ok so especially for Karin who enjoys my flashbacks of drunken nights, here is another one to share with you all.
It was a Friday night in January 2006, and it was my step sisters 30th birthday party which she had at a bar in Bristol. It was a mix of her family and friends and the she had hired the top floor of the bar which was on the river front and it was a great venue. Most of the guests were staying at the City Inn aswell so we had all met for dinner before the birthday bash, and consumed some wine!!
I arrived at the party with my Mum and Step Dad as Jon was on his way back from Norway, and was hoping to meet me at there at about 9pm. We had only been seeing each other since the November, so I had really missed him while he had been way and couldn't wait to see him and introduce him to my extended family. I had also had my hair coloured and restyled that morning and I couldn't wait to show it off as I loved it so much - to this day it is the best hair cut I have ever had and been when I tried to have it done again it never quite looked the same!
Yes this was me slightly squiffy on white wine which had kept me company while I waited for Jon to arrive, which he did eventually at well past 10pm. Well that's my excuse anyway!
I am still looking tanned from the trip to Kenya that I went on at Christmas, to see one of my best friends get married. I had lost weight on that holiday too so with my fab new hair do, to be honest, I was feeling pretty good about myself. Yes well i was a bit drunk and wine makes you feel good doesn't it??! Ha ha!
Anyway, that's not what this flashback is really about. You may recall me mentioning that we were staying at a City Inn? Well Jon and I were staying in the room next door to my Mum and Step Dad. Now please bear with me because the events I am going to recount to you are very hazy and some of it was relayed to me the next morning! Uh oh indeed!
So I know that Jon and I had some *ahem* 'romantic' time and I remember taking a shower afterwards before going to sleep. The next thing I remember I am sitting on the toilet and after washing my hands something made me grab a towel to cover myself up in as I was naked - I NEVER sleep naked but typically I did this night! As I peered around the bathroom door, I saw my Step Dad walking towards me in his pj's (thank goodness he didn't sleep naked that night!!) and I thought why is Mike in my room - what's happened? As it turns out I was in his room!! I think he told me this so I just walked out of the room and back into the hotel hallway. I started banging on the door to mine and Jon's room, as I was locked out! Well Jon is a very deep sleep and slightly deaf in one ear so I was knocking on that door for ages - so much so that a guest from the room opposite - a man! - opened his door to see what was going on and to ask if I was ok!! In the end my Mum or Mike got hold of Jon by phoning the telephone in his room and he had no idea that I wasn't lying in bed next to him! Well once I got back into bed I told him that I must have slept walk into Mum's room, and thank goodness Mike had appeared outside the bathroom door else I may have tried to get in to bed with both of them! It was soooo funny!
Of course at breakfast news had got around to the other family members what I had got up to during the night, so I was greeted with lots of laughs and wise cracks! The thing is, to this day I don't understand how I gained entry into Mum and a Mike's room because it would have been locked and I didn't have a key! Mum told me that she had woken up and heard someone in their bathroom, woken up my Step Dad and told him to go and investigate! I don't think they were expecting me to come out! I was sooooooo confused and embarrassed when I saw him standing there, especially because if I hadn't grabbed a towel I would have been starkers!
So it's all a bit of a mystery really but to this day whenever it gets mentioned, it always makes us all laugh. I didn't live that down for some time I can tell you!
