It’s that where did it all go day. Frost, rain and a Spoons with an Orangery. I spent the afternoon in The Pursuit of Hoppiness where everyone seemed to be my age. A Chief spotted me in a Tesco Metro

Contact lenses in first time. Remote car park payment was a winner if somewhat expensive. A new Spoons, The Chevalier Inn, sort of like a kindergarten and I forgot to get the Cask Marque QR code. A T-shirt from The excellent Beer Cellar and the a pleasant what’s the best cover in The Pursuit of Hoppiness

Contact lenses and parking apps were against me. Not keen on the rather dark and roadworks burdened M5 either. However, a 06:30 opening Costa in the centre of town and a compact City Centre won me back. Overfilled #CurryThursday and a bit of a find with The Beer Cellar. I can’t see the sea from my Premier Inn room and The Pursuit of Hoppiness is another Exeter winner.

The final wrap of #mb14 2019. The Oktoberfest 2019 Beano. The highlights day by day. Day 01 Rhubarb Custard Milkshake IPA and in the spirit of cross platform integration, David Spark’s Apple Book The Guide to Markdown. And yes, I see the irony there. Day 02 was the Gloucester Brewery Oktoberfest 2019 German Hat. You gave got to get into spirit of these things. Day 03 introducing a CAMRA member to the joys of Untappd. And then it was over.

The Chicken Sandwiches (Tescos) left in the car. Almost no podcasts, always get a case. Drinking Club memebers and leaving doors open. Rhubarb Custard Milkshake Ipad and Fine Ales are Fine Ales.

#mb14 – Day 01 – The Start

I don’t want to start off by moaning but it’s mostly what I do. However the cool almost coldness of Autumn is off the list as I rather like it. Driving north on the M5, why aren’t the junctions and entrances to service lit up. It’s very easy to go straight past them with the attendant chance of an accident. When you check in online to Premier Inn you give them your car registration number, then when you park in the car park of Gloucester Quays you have to register your car so they don’t fine you £85. Two different computer systems not talking to each other, great. However the Costa Coffee next to the Premier Inn, excellent and is The Regal (Spoons) in the City Centre.
