I meet up with old school mates on Saturday for a pint before the Cardiff Blues v Toulouse game at Cardiff’s millennium stadium, I was not going to the game but as I have not seen them for around a year… it was a good chance to catch up and have a few pints before they went off to the game, then home.
In fact the weather was so nice I stayed in Cardiff and had a few pints and meet them after the game and ended up at my local a few hours later with one of the boys Rory who was not going home.. but it made me realise that I can’t handle a all day session anymore…. 🙁 as i was not much use yesterday…
The only downside was that on these match days in Cardiff all the pubs serve their beer in plastic glasses, which does not help the taste in my opinion and this Batemans was the only decent pint and it was not very good at all, plus the megapub Prince of Wales had put the beer prices up. I had to wait until I got home to get a good pint a few Black Sheep
Anyway as the Mrs says I never get in contact with my mates enough, so will have to make the effort to visit Reading in the summer where three of them live & work of course a few decent pints should be waiting for me.
