Then there was Storm Arwen and Costa was closed to walk ins due to staff shortages. It snowed while I was in the Regal, however the Saturday Wrap was not disrupted. The Pelican had it’s marquee blown away but the Fine Ales were unharmed. Til the next time.

Stormy Saturday Session

The wind and rain of Storm Arwen. Costa only doing drive throughs due to staff shortages. TFWRail shut down. The Regal in Gloucester still very festive and the home of The Saturday Wrap. Then it snowed. The wind was cutting but the real fire in The Pelican was warming. Mostly halves and I can’t wait for the next one.

An hour and a half sleep in. I get my last Bean to work. The Constable opens at 09:0. A new festive variant. A Cloudwater 10% to start and rather stormy.

A New Strain For Black Friday

Just in time for Christmas, a new strain of the Rhona. I use the last of my saved Costa Coffee Beans. The Bar in The Lord High Constable now opens at 09:00 instead of 10:00, very positive. Gentle Dogs, lots of people and Pink Floyd on YouTube. A massive Mini Beano.

As cold and clear as you can get without frost. High contrast and semi optimised journey. The Costa app needs the Beans redemption redesigned. Nectar points at Sainsbury. Black Friday App Store deals. The Gorilla in a Santa hat. Pelican Internet down, tab in operation.

High Contrast Motorways

When clear skies, high pressure weather and 50 mile an hour speed limits make your outbound Beano journey much easier. An extra five Nectar points at Sainsbury. Why the Costa App needs lots of work. The Gorilla in The Regal in a Santa App. App Store Black Friday deals. The wind is cutting but the Sun is warm. Excellent Ales in The Pelican Inn but the Internet was down for the first two hours. Lovely Pub, lover Pub Fire.

20211125 – Prelude mb08 Gloucester November 21

A Manchester Beer Festive in Gloucester, what’s not to love. However badly bruised toe and a non optimised departure. These things are sent to try us. Fighting it with Coffee and Bacon Rolls mostly. Turned out the departure was slightly optimised due to the clear skies.

Garden – November 2021

Well, it took a long time but Autumn is now over and the cold of Winter has arrived. Sunny, cold and chilling winds from the North. The weeds are dying back, the lawn has had it’s last mow of the year and I’m emptying the pots of their compost. The Green Summer Onions are coming on well with the red ones following slowly behind. I’ve got some rather nice Spring Onions indoors but they are not going to last very long. It will soon be seed buying time again.
