darts practice monday night i was awsome as usual and got knocked out in the first round don't know why i bother really !!!!!!!!
tuesday well this was a strange day, we had a wake at the pub today i did a finger buffet for the people that were coming back after the funeral only thought around 15 or 20 would come back no there were around 50 good job i catered for this amount, the only thing we didn't cater for was the beer , we were having a delivery on wednesday anyway but we expected it to last till then, no we ran out of the guest beer first, thought thats ok plenty of mild and bitter no then we ran out of the mild and to cap it all off the bitter also went, the amount of stick and p...s taking i took on tuesday was unbelievable, got over all that though i have got broad shoulders, i did say 500 plus bikers have tried to drink us out of ale for the last 5 years they have never managed it but all the customers we had on tuesday did thanks everyone a sign of a busy pub.
tuedasy night we had the singles dominoes knock outs at the pub trev, chrissy and sarah all got through well done to them all.
