The forth day of my sabbatical was the first day of the gbbf. As a season ticket holder (the next few days posts might get quite repetitive) I can get into the trade session on Tuesday afternoon to get a head start on every one else.

As is usual I started with a half of HSB and carried on from there.
In total I drank 20 halves and had a taste of the Fuller's Brewers Reserve No. 3 which wasn't really my thing.
The best beer I had was the Dunham Massey Chocolate Cherry Mild. I hope to keep untappd up to date with the beers I'm drinking.

I also ate 2 bags of pork scratchings but didnt find any hairy ones yet.

I resisted the urge to play any of the games to win stuff I don't need.

I had 9 texts from work.

So I started my 4 month sabbatical on Saturday after a heavy nights drinking with work on the friday night in the Tower Bridge Draft House.

On the Saturday we had a house warming/going away party which went fine although we now have far too many bread rolls in the freezer.We almost failed with the BBQ but in the end we managed to burn some meat. One of the youngest guests found the novelty or running round inside and out through the kitchen and living room to be most entertaining. [personal profile] kake's lego was got out and played with which is always good.

Sunday I spent shopping and finally found a useful piece of luggage for my trip its a Megadecker supposedly.I also bought some elastic so [personal profile] kake can fix my shorts so they stay up instead of fashionably showing my underwear. We also ate lots more meat and rolls.

On Monday morning I finally dealt with the bills for the old flat and the new house. Now all I need to do is a few change of addresses for my cards and stuff.

For lunch I ate the last of the leftover cooked food from the bbq. There is still plenty of uncooked stuff left in the freezer though.

Monday afternoon and evening [personal profile] kake and I did a pub crawl round Wallingtonand Carshalton.

Much tasty beer was drunk especially in the Hope it was a good warm up for the GBBF the rest of the week.

Whilst out I had one sms from work.

... no wiser though.


Anyway today is my birthday. The hangover from last nights drinking at the Hope has faded. So I can now contemplate more drinking. Kake and I are off to Viajante for lunch.

Then this evening you are all welcome to join me at the Dog & Bell in Deptford. Ive not booked anything and ill be quite happy to drink tasty beer on my own so dont feel you have to come. Deptford is a long way away for some people. I expect to be at the pub no later than 17:00. Hmm that sentence was a bit odd. I will be at the pub from 17:00 if not earlier and staying till they chuck me out or something like that.

  • Going to Petersham. Mainly to meet up with people in the Dysart Arms

  • Shouting at co-workers. I got a touch angry during a live deployment on wednesday.

  • Drinking! Two days of supping tasty beer at the gbbf. The st austell black prince was the only thing to really stand out. The gunpowder mild was pretty good as well.

  • Eating pig! I probably had far too many pork scratchings at the gbbf. Although there was a disturbing lack of hairy ones. I also had a 20 inch bratwurst.

  • Staying at home! I couldnt face another day at the gbbf on friday and the weather didnt look too good so didnt go to croydon for the surrey match at whitgift. Instead listened to a fantastic england batting collapse. just like bad old days. ahh the memories.

  • Blogging! I actually wrote a technical blog post after over a year. signed apt repos if you like that sort thing. also in a meta kind of way this post.
