A woman was left with a huge black eye, swollen face, and a concussion after a boozy bottomless brunch with her friends got out of hand.
Nat Cooper, 43, had gone out with her pals to Chapo's El Campeon in Ashton, Makerfield to celebrate her birthday, where they enjoyed a stream of cocktails and bottomless prosecco.
All was going well until Nat took a fall in the bathroom after drinking one Porn Star Martini too many.
The mum-of-six and grandmother-of-one had been sitting on the toilet with the cubicle door open so she could continue chatting to her friend Siobhan, when she fell face first and smacked her eye on the ground.
Nat said that she believes she had a concussion as she doesn't have any memory of the fall, her friend Siobhan picking her up, or how she got home.
However, she did take home a shiny memento from the day to commemorate the incident - a swollen, black eye.
She said: "Seeing my eye the next day, I was shocked. I was frantic, like what have I done? Please tell me I've not been fighting - I'm a nan!
"I've only been to one bottomless brunch before, in Wigan, and I was sick at the restaurant before we left.
"This was my birthday day out with my best friend, so I was excited and thought I’m really letting my hair down.
"I had just come back from holiday so thought I could handle the cocktails but clearly they are not proper spirits in an all inclusive resort and these hit differently."
Nat added that she and Siobhan had also had pre-drinks before the bottomless brunch, including two 'big big vodkas' and a can of Lambrini for the bus ride.
Hoping to continue the celebrations, Nat had no plans to go home or to the hospital after her fall.
"We went outside to wait for the bus and I was on the floor at the bus stop when a very kind stranger stopped and asked to take us home," she said.
"Instead, we asked to get dropped off at our local pub. I didn’t drink and I still didn’t know I had fallen but apparently wouldn’t let anyone phone an ambulance and the barmaid gave me ice for my eye."
Eventually Siobhan and her mum managed to get Nat home to bed. She joked that she had been like Dory out of Finding Nemo because she 'kept forgetting [she] had fallen' and kept asking them who had hit her.
"The restaurant itself was second to none, beautiful place and lovely staff," said Nat. "I hope they let me back, it wasn't their fault, it was my fault, I shouldn't have been pre-drinking!"
