An odd November, but at least it was better than November 2020, perhaps the most miserable of my life.
Not much of a travel map,
and only 32 new GBG pubs (ticks), which compares shamefully with BRAPA’s haul of 61.
Not that I didn’t save pubs, sometime single-handedly. Eighty-four (84) different pubs in a month, but problematically (?) many of them were repeat visits on wonderful Days Out with Old and Young Codgers in Macclesfield, Belper and Stafford.
I wouldn’t swap those pints with Will and the Mudg(i)es for any number of new micros called Bottle & Bellend, I’ll tell you.
And I got Bass this month. Great Bass, too. Just not as much as Life After Football.
I took Mrs RM; a local offered to tie her shoelaces up. A fortnight later I took Will; he didn’t offer to tie Will’s shoelaces up. Sexist, but sensational.
Runner-up was the Alpine Hut in Sheffield Christmas Market. Obvs.
BEER OF THE MONTH – PEDIGREE, WINTER GREEN, SHEFFIELD
BARGAIN OF THE MONTH – FISH & CHIPS + OLD PECULIER £6.34, SPOONS.
It’s my birthday on the 22nd, so I’ll be targeting 22 ticks that day, anyway.
And later this week I’ll be sharing my strategy. It’s good to have a strategy, even if you ignore it completely.
Right, off to get my booster jab.
