Kayleigh. Thought it was OK, was kinda interested but that's as far as it went...
then met a lovely chap who I dated for a while who kindly introduced me to the albums,singles etc, he had loads and off I went,fuelled by my desire (for the music :) )

Garden party for me. A bunch of us 6th formers went to the pub on the last day of term before Christmas. We ended up at one of the lads houses. His parents had more booze and importantly he had a VHS tape of the garden party video. We watched it about a million times while we got more sozzled.

Ah, those were the days.
