Thanks for the recommendations. Currently staying at Platform 3. A trip to
Worcester yesterday. Anupam delivered last night - great biryani. Walk up hill today and just back from an afternoon session at the Nags Head. Cracking pub! Cheers.
Station House? It's fab isn't it? We stayed in Sleepers when we went and took up some of @Mad Cyril 's excellent recommendations too.

Been to Freeport and spent too much and for as long as I can remember we are no longer in the relegation places 🤣

Cheers Cyril went there yesterday lunchtime for a quick one before the Nags Head.
The Barrels in Hereford today. A perfect pint of Butty Bach.

If you like your real ale and extremely old school boozers try The Three Kings in Hanley Castle. 10 mins drive away and on the way to Upton on Severn

Glad that Villarreal beat MU last night.Also happy that Gerrard Morreno scored (ex-Espanyoll) scored for them.Watch out for him in the Euros,he's a classy forward with 10 caps to his name already.

That was a crazy pen shoot out. You could see on De Gea's face he was going to miss.

I'm a bit of a closet Man U fan so wanted them to win, but fair play to Villarreal, they parked the bus. It wasn't a good game to watch at all.

And the town has a population of 50K, Jesus, there's hope for us yet.

CT scan this afternoon at Southend Hospital, drove straight into the main car park, no queue, got my ticket from the barrier, had my scan and 1.5hrs later went to pay for parking (just under four quid.) All the pay machines were T/F'd with out of order signs on them, drove to the exit gates and the barrier was permanently raised. Very happy RHB.:Smile2:

Didn't see the game but Villarreal have always been a well managed club.

It's a Bank holiday weekend and the weather looks better which is great as going to a BBQ for my first social occasion with people outside my bubble since March last year.
The only slight negative is two of them are Hamster's so will be like the cat that got the cream and my only hope is that means they will not want to talk about Southend's season in any detail too dampen my mood.

On day work over Dartfofd and the machine driver is dropping major hints that he wants to crack on by waving his bucket in the air. I'm on tacho break so he'll have to wait.

Bucket in air.

Still on break.

Sitting on my balcony looking at the Rocky Mountains whilst eating a cheese and tomato sandwich for a late tea. Bloody marvelous.

Sounds top drawer mate.

Will you be keeping an eye on the Avs playoff game against The Golden Knights?
