    By the way, we went to Sainsburys early shop for oldies and they were giving away their surplus Mothers' Day bouquets (lot).
    Years of experience at Antwerp's flower markets led me to choose a bouquet that I was sure would last well and be attractive.
    Unpacked it at home and found they'd stickered it with a 25 price tag. Now all I need to do is find that big vase for it.

    Keep well everybody.

    If it helps, I did have a horrendous hangover this morning.
    Will have to mitigate tonight... by having Adnams Ghost Ship!

    I've got 2 bottles of Newcastle Brown in my cupboard that I have had for about 25 years,they have immense sentimental value and I don't intend ever opening them, but if things got real bad d'you reckon would they go down a treat or just finish me off?

    Umm I can't say I'm a fan of Ghost Ship in either variety. Much prefer Southwold Bitter or Broadside.
    Living in Norfolk now I am spoilt for choice with good local breweries. Woodforde's is very popular but my favourite at the moment is the Panther brewery in Reepham.
    When I was a lad Norfolk was famous for being a real ale desert - everything was Watneys. Glad those days are gone!

    In the loft I've got an un-opened bottle of Mandora Lime Cordial squash. I bought it from a boot-sale abt 28 years ago. According to the date code cut on the base of the label it was bottled a few years before then, and at a time when I was working there as a labtech responsible for such things. The upper part of the contents do not look very healthy. It's amazing what the house-clearance bods offer at boot-sales.

    Wot's your story? Bet it's better....

    Watneys! I'm just old enough to remeber that - a virulent orange fluid that looked like it would be more suitable as a meduim for corrosion testing. Never tried drinking it.
    My introduction to beer was my fathers home brew, and very good it was too. Mass produced beers and lagers were referred to as 'eurofizz' and treated with appropriate disdain.
