At this time of the year everyone sets about trying to alter bad habits, get fit, change their diet and all sorts of other virtuous shit. Having tried these things unsuccessfully for 27 years I thought I'd embrace my drinking habit rather than trying to suppress it.
The sun still very much had it's hat on come Friday evening when I'd finished work. Esther and I ambled up to The Telegraph on Putney Heath as it's got one of the best beer gardens in London. The Telegraph has a great selection of ales and lots that I've not tried, however, the weather … Continue reading Scorcher
When I get involved in something, I like to go all the way and really commit my time to it. That's why, without playing a single minute of a match for my new cricket team, I was going to pitch up to the AGM (Annual General Meeting). As this would no doubt result in meeting … Continue reading AGM

We headed into town briefly first and I met … Continue reading Engagement Party Bonanza
