The mb01 Journal – Hereford January 2023

11/01/2023 Leave a comment

In which the Journal starts even before the Beano start. Training in The Malcolm Uphill, Caerphilly and having my first Curry of the year. CES2023 monitoring as well. That’s what you do in January. CES 2023 goes into farming. The Petrol is cheaper in Hereford and I get a Costa Reward for a free hot drink. 99p Guest Ales in the Kings Fee and overdoing it with Cobs in The Orange Tree. It’s a quality Mini Beano so far. Poor planning and places being shut mean it’s a return to The Orange Tree and more Cobs. Continued to rain.

Back To The Friday Plan

Not quite as much rain to start the day. I really should have checked the opening times as The Beer In Hand is closed on Sunday. So, The Orange Tree and over doing it on Cobs it is then. Ham Salad on arrival, Cheese and Onion to follow. Cobs could be the January thing?

The lots of Weather Saturday. Coffee was large, no actually huge. Local Cask Ale in The Kings Fee but no Wild Beer Co cans.  Spotted a Birthday Beer Pack in the @hfdbeerhouse for a friend and it is now being delivered. 10% off my bill for tagging, just like @bragdytwtlol All I need is another 2p on my nectar card for another AirTag.

Saturday’s recap

Free Coffee and Tagging

There was a lot of overnight weather and well into the day as well. It turned out that the free hot drink included the large drinks as well. So a huge hit of Caffeine and a paid for Bacon Roll as well. The Kings Fee has run out of Wild Beer Co Cans forever. 10% off in @hfdbeerhouse for tagging. Gets a Birthday Gift Pack. Quality Glassware. 

And I was Happy too

Cheaper Petrol and Beer

06 January 2023

Back in the Beano saddle for 2023. The Beer House is only open on the Saturday (10% off for tagging them on Social Media), so it’s more of the Beer In Hand and The Orange Tree. Lots of Daily Tech News Show #CES2023 coverage on the way up.

Nice lot of space in the Carpark

And just across the road, a sign that I shouldn’t have filled up before I left. 2023 is going to be one of those years.

However 149.9 a litre in Pontypridd

Things started to look up when I was given an app voucher for a hot drink in Costa Coffee tomorrow.

I’m the Mayor too

The Town Centre and on the way to The Kings Fee (Wetherspoon)

99p a Pint for Guest Ales. Helps with the Post Christmas spending.

Not Here in Wales

Moving on to The Orange Tree, in need of Cobs.

A lot of history around
A Great Pubby Pub

Might, actually completely over did it with two cobs.

Cheese and Onion & Ham Salad

Opens at 12:00, seven days a week. Classic Pub.

The first Mini Beano of 2023 and the usual January issue of closed pubs. Redone my schedule and I think I have got it beat. Too dark for optimised departure, obviously. A windy start at home and a calm and cooler arrival in Hereford. It’s good to be Beanoing in 2023.

Back Beanoing in 2023

This really is a lot of odds and stuff. Christmas lights, me burbling on, beer, chips and festive lights. The true spirit of Beanoing.

£2.50 for the quality Cob

2 for 2 as both contact lenses go straight in. Tweets of German Smoke Biers get you great Twitter stats. Another sign of Christmas, the 2023 Radio Users guide is out and now ordered. No mince pies in The Kings Fee, however a Manager’s Special saves the day. The TV remote control for the TV opposite me goes missing, so it’s the World Cup on the iPad Mini. Tesco you need more people on the tills and self service is unreliable. Big German, Malty start in the Hereford Beer House. And then it’s over.

And then it’s over

The Missing Mince Pie

DH Unplugged and not quite the Lazy Beano model, despite it being a later start due to it being Sunday. So the start is in The Kings Fee.  Orange Juice but a World Shortage of Mince Pies.  Also they have lost the remote control for the TV opposite me, so I’m watching the World Cup on my iPad Mini. The Hereford Beer House, big German, Malty start. 

Malty Sunday

Sometimes you just can’t get a contact lens in. Other days both go straight in. Bought some second class stamps, 68p each. Yes, No. Used my Bean for a free Coffee in Costa. The tree now has lights. Have Spoons turned their heating off? Hazy Jane when the cask is meh! The Imperial, difficult to login to WiFi. Need to be back to the Hereford Beer House more often. Big Twitter Rauchbier hit.
