A bit tongue in cheek, Aileen. I think it's quite unusual for parents even to be present at 21st parties, unless it was a family do. I wouldn't have had my Mum & Dad within 100 miles of mine, I recall!!
It's a family party. Been going on since 3pm. My daughter and her mates have gone off into town now and it's slowly breaking up. And yes, I did give a speech. It was extraordinarily short.
