Trina Cortina, a mobile hairdresser from Gillingham, has told how she 'fought back the emotion' when her soon-to-be husband, Colin, finally returned home after a fifth consecutive all weekend booze-binge with the lads.
Miss Cortina recalls, "I was so excited when he called at 3am on Saturday morning, informing he wouldn't be home, and slurring how much he loved me…… and Darren, and Bob, and Terry, his mates. He's always been so considerate in that respect." However, in her excitement she claimed, she accidentally smashed a photo of the couple, taken some years ago whilst holidaying in Spain, and where Colin had proposed, as she told him to, "Take care then" and placed the handset back on the bedside cabinet. "Accidents happen" she shrugged.
In the two days before her fiance's eventual return, Miss Cortina says she was able to get so much done at home. "Colin's wardrobe needed a good sort-out" she smiled, "so I took it upon myself to rearrange it how I saw fit. I was also able to alter Colin's favourite trousers, which were just a foot or so too long, in my opinion. Then there was his prized CD collection, his golf clubs and his vintage guitar" that she claimed had been "cluttering the spare room for far too long" all of which which she said, "were relocated, to the local charity shop."
Miss Cortina continued, "Most importantly, I was able to pack Colin's suitcase, in preparation for his upcoming business trip next month. I'm quite an organised person so like to help where I can"
When, at 6pm on Sunday evening, Colin finally returned, so thrilled was Miss Cortina that she said, "I couldn't wait to plant a big smacker, right on his kisser."
Unfortunately, Colin, was not available to comment on the weekend's proceedings, however, Miss Cortina did mention that since his return he's been "trying unsuccessfully to contact the vicar in order to finalise the details of the wedding day and so has taken it upon himself to speak to God directly via the big white telephone in the bathroom."
The wedding is planned for this Christmas, although it's unclear whether Miss Cortina will be present.
