Glad you're back. I'll get 'em in.
You're a Gent
Too early for a gin?
That's a silly question if ever I heard one
I'm still working. Have been staring at my screen for the last hour or so as the drugs wear off doing hew-haw. Still they got me through my 1-2-1. Back over the water to Belfast I go.
Sadly Curtis only stuck around for 18mths after that. You should definitely stay longer.
pickled egg anyone? as a special treat?welcome home dearx
Sticking around is good. I might pass on the pickled egg, mind.
Off out tonight with a friend whose wife has got cancer and who is struggling a bit. I may need a stiff gin or two in advance.
Grim. But being a good friend = priceless.
Pickled egg no. But one of my highlights from a trip to Manchester is stopping off at Westmoreland services going home for a Smokey Joe scotch egg, fucking marvelous. Drooling at the thought now, no wait a minute that's just the after effects of today.
if we were in the castle there'd be a big jar of tunnocks tea cakes - best bar snack i've ever seenx
The Castle on Oldham St Ally? Top boozer. And you're right about Tunnocks.
Tunnocks Carmel Logs are brilliant. If you are ever up here and in Uddingston, you have to go to their bakery.
Off or tea now, out for Eliza's 10th birthday. Her shout? Pizza fucking Hut.
welcome back dave. its been tough being on the dry. but fuck gin, me and me main man Eric are getting into a bottle of Scapa tonight. It's a celebration. Will yis be goin to see 'Spike Island' all? Looks like a cliff richard movie- Anto (the jaysus thing won't accept my 'credentials'
yup that castle. it was your tip that sent me scuttling there mr swiss. ta ever so.
There's salmon sandwiches, made yesterday, and good tinned salmon too
Couldn't Glo, just had a chicken curry which had been cooking all day in the slow cooker and I'm stuffed. A round would be nice, I'll have a dark rum and ginger beer and whatever the rest of them fancy.For some reason I have a craving for,something chocolates filled with mallow on a biscuit base. might just nip out to the Spar.
I like a buttery biscuit base
*runs through bar stark naked. stops, does the willy dance, runs out again*
must be cold out
Hi Davy,Glad to see you're back and feeling a little more chipper. I've decided to return to a private blog format, so could I ask you to remove the soon-to-be defunct 'It's All in the Grooves' link? Thanks very much for having it on your blogroll over the last few months.All the best,Marie
Beautifully put, as ever, dear boy, beautifully put.x
