Send a quick text saying “YES”. Finish work early. Pack the 2 man tent because not all of you can make it. Along with the essentials; wine, marshmallows and pot noodles ;) . Arrive. Sit back and relax listening to the children running around laughing. Relax that little bit more when they all go for a walk to the beach together. Drink more wine and laugh til late. Some of you may drink gin and have a dirty hangover the following morning. Not me…for once! Wake up early and take yourself for a walk along the beach. Go fishing. Proper fishing for the first time. Catch mackerel and fry it in plenty of butter that evening. Head home with one less child, because no way is he leaving that party.
