Last few days a bit mad really.
Friday met up with Norma after she finished work, we had planed to meet up with some friends and make a night of it but after having a meal, Norma started to feel ill, it hit me a bit later, must have been something we ate as we did not drink that much. So we did not meet up with Joe and George, they went on I believe to have a really good night out.
Saturday we had a good fry up in Rowntree's in the Arndale then set off for Chester to meet up with Alan, Boonta, Duncan and Nit. We visited the Bear and Billet a pub owned by the Manx Brewery Okells, mentioned in a previous log. The real ale was great, IPA, Bitter (Ran out after a while) & Aile. We went on to have a meal in the Thai Restaurant up the road called Ruan Orchid. www.ruanorchid.com very nice, I would advise you to book if you plan a visit, only small but nice.
We went back to the Holiday inn and resided in the bar, quite a lot to drink and a good evening.
Traveled back today and have been quiet, United lost 2-1 in the derby match but the minutes silence in memory of the Munich Air crash was upheld by all supporters, a credit to both teams.
As yet I have not had my joining instructions for Wednesday but Contracts and offers all in hand, looking forward to the challenge.
Traa dy liooar.
