Today was the SARDA AGM. It was supposed to start at 1400, so Mal picked me up about 1330 and we headed off up to base. We hadn’t left Senghenydd when the pagers went off, giving us our head’s up that the police had called. Bloody typical. So, off we head, up over the mountain […]

Last night after work, Mal texted me and we decided to head out for a swift pint. As usual, these things never end there… By 2300, we’d had about 4 pints across 3 different pubs – the Trader’s near the office, the Vulcan – one of the oldest pubs in Cardiff and the Miller’s in […]

What an absolutely brilliant week this has been. This is an update to all you friends out there about this whole week, so it’s long and hidden behind a cut for your sanity. *grin* Sean arrived on Friday and after heading out to Cotswold’s quickly, we headed off to Charleston’s for a nice meal.

…*Boinnnggg!* “Drops ’em for sure” said Zebedee. Apologies to those of you who have no idea what I’m on about.
