Thanks to all that voted and lovely to meet all those on the night.
Oh, and top work by Duncan and Georgie for being the only ones out of my circle of friends (Wellingtonista excepted, of course) that managed to come - I was so sure my old gang were still the going out and partying type, maybe life is a little fast for them now-a-days.
