OK, so we need to think of a date !

It needs to be a few weeks into January for me, cos I just got out of hospital and am supposed to be taking it very easy for several weeks.

I got a really bad gushing nose bleed due to an infection about 3 weeks after having an routine op to sort out a blockage in my nose.   Ambulance, A&E, 9 days in hospital. They were almost going to keep me in over Christmas on a drip, but instead I got out on the 23rd with a weeks supply of horse tranquiliser sized antibiotics.  Upshot is I'm not allowed to drink, socialise with people due to infection risk, or do anything that will raise my blood pressure/heart rate for a few weeks.

But anyway I feel pretty good & am really glad to be paroled for Christmas. 

Anyway Andy I raise a glass of carrot juice in your direction, happy Christmas mate !!

13th is ok, unfortunately on the 14th I will have large amounts of post to deal so it's not good for me. haha

Sunday is a Holy day for me, but can probably make it just this once.
Title: Re: Oi Londoners !! Fancy neckin' a beer around Christmas or the New Year ?
Post by: barclaycon on February 03, 2011, 12:33:52 PM
A Holy Day ?!
OK...
Not a beer-drinking, techie conversation, catch-up, meet new people type day then ?
I'm joking of course.

13th is okay for me (I'll say extra prayers on the Monday).

Anyone else ?
Title: Re: Oi Londoners !! Fancy neckin' a beer around Christmas or the New Year ?

Is the pub likely to close early on a SUnday ?  Maybe not in London.

Yes I'm afraid so Rob.
It would seem that apathy rules the day.
Shame really, as it would have been nice to catch up.
Title: Re: Oi Londoners !! Fancy neckin' a beer around Christmas or the New Year ?
Post by: Rob Flinn on February 12, 2011, 06:56:29 PM
Yes it would have been good.  Maybe we can reschedule if anyone else decides that they're not apathetic.

Sorry chaps but I am up to my neck in it at the moment and just worked both the
last two weekends too !
I'm out of the game until at least first week of April due to a tour.

Not "apathetic" just "workaholic" !!

Glad to hear you're better Rob.
