What did I do on Thursday, on a day the rain lashed down.
Glad I’m not living in Stockport and Didsbury. (I’m OK, at the top of the hill. Aren’t I ?).
Yesterday, three loads of clothes washed and dried, two sets of dishes cleaned, one US inauguration watched, and trips to Tesco and the local recycling centre. It’s all go here.
The kitchen tiling has been removed and revealed the Sheffield Star’s equivalent of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Yes, underlay and girdles, but sadly no ancient adverts for Stones Best, which is mildy disappointing.
More upsetting was the news that local off-licence Walkley Beer Co. has had to close.
I’d been enjoying their “cask in a 2 pint milk bottle” take-outs more than cans of late.
But local licensing department had just noticed they had an (unused) on-licence as well, deemed them a pub, and ordered them to close. Pretty much while I was standing outside with my bottle in pocket, like in the Pretenders song. The Two Sheds bottle shop/micro up the hill in Crookes met the same fate too.
So, I can go in an off-licence, or the craft cans line of Tesco or Morrisons, or get a delivery of cans, but cask is denied me as well. Or is it ?
Back home, Mrs RM had just had her 17th delivery of the day.
Yes, she’d succumbed to the craft beer subscription craze sweeping Mumsnet.
“Well, go and get the doughnuts then”. Mrs RM will be doing on-line beer/food matching next.
It was raining hard, I wasn’t walking into town for Dunkin, even if it is essential, so Krispy Kreme from the entrance at Tesco had to do.
8 cans from Melbourne, but not the one in Derbyshire near Life After Football, sadly. Too soon to tell you if they’re any good, though the pink doughnut certainly was.
And if Mrs RM ever gets bored of restyling the house, she can spend the rest of the year trying to cancel the subscription.
