Apologies for not setting up the Daily Bitch yesterday. I see Marietta took over took over the job. Thanks for that M. Shame about the topic though. Doesn't seem to have been that popular. Never mind - better luck next time.
Also I feel I should apologise personally to Marietta. I am neither dead nor writhing on my floor in agony. I simply went to a friend's 50th birthday party and had a really great time. We had lunch in a fantastic pub that I hadn't been to since 1976.
That roast beef looks very similar to what I was eating yesterday afternoon. Spring has come with a vengence here. We sat in the pub garden all afternoon and I even got a bit sunburnt. In the evening we went to an Irish pub with traditional music and had a whale of a time laughing, singing, dancing. Much more fun than sitting in meetings listening to Billshit.
Another glorious day today so I'm off out into the garden. The plan is to get the strawberry beds sorted today. If this weather keeps up they'll be in fruit in 10-12 weeks. Nothing like fresh strawberries from your own garden. Loads of manual work this time of year though. Not the greatest of fun but it's got to be done if you want the good stuff in the end.
I'm off down the pub again tonight. A friend of mine is playing in a local band - should be a good night. 2 pubs yesterday, another one today? Better watch out!!!! "If you go into the barber shop often enough you bound to get a haircut sometime" - what a load of bullshit. Nothing like a bit of on-going fear inducement. If I want to drink, I will drink. Either I will go to a pub and order it or go to a supermarket and buy it. I will then drink it. It will be completely my decision, not some crazy mental black spot or whatever Mad Bill says.
Maybe that could be a good topic for the day. What crazy sayings do AA come out with that reinforce the fear factor that AA relies on.
