Due to similar events to why I couldn't attend the Birmingham meet-up I am unable to come and join you all in London.
I can 100% guarantee that I will see some of you in October at the main event.
I really hope you all have a really good time and get to and from the event safely.
Every train cancelled from Brum to Euston! I don't believe it. A mid-summer Saturday! I'll have to go down my local station in the morning and pray they'll let me use another route. Where I live London trains go into Paddington so won't be affected. If they say no, I don't know what I'll do. They tell us to buy tickets in advance, and then they do this! Surely planned works, as these seem to be, are planned months in advance. So why are they selling tickets on trains they know will be cancelled?
Really enjoyed the weekend and all six lads in attendance were on good form. Lots to eat, lots to drink and the weather stayed fine. Though i have to admit, after 40 hours in London im happy to be back at OTFDs mission control here in a much quieter and less busy Derby.
I look forward to all our meet-ups and the social side of OFTDs has now become my favourite thing associated with the site.
If you’ve been wandering around a very hot and sunny London all morning, there’s nothing better than walking into a pub with great beers and cold ciders and join 5 guys who are engrossed in conversation about your favourite subject.
Mysteries and uncertainties about L&C dance routines were discussed and put to rights in an afternoon of jovial, happy and convivial drinking in the pub’s beer garden – the air con may have been on inside the pub, but that’s for wimps - true die hard L&C fans value the sunshine too much.
Thanks to AC/PD for the choice of venue which was completely fit for purpose, as were the other pubs. Great to meet Ryan, Gorgeous Daze, ER and Doc again and enjoy the non-stop conversation / banter / laughs on another successful London summer meet.
One fine day with five good folks.
Simply enjoyable - relaxing and amusing in equal measure.
Just the three pubs visited, the two with exteriors belying their Capital city locations and made particularly pleasant by the presence of warm conditions and daylight way beyond 9pm.
Taking One For The Dads out on the road, the primary pub had a list of beers which, early into consumption, were given the ratings treatment with just the one receiving the lowest mark of 6/10. Far too many contenders to agree on a 'Beer of the Day' nomination.
Thanks especially to those present and also those who posted messages hoping for a successful meet-up - it was.
I just wanna thank The Rubberband Man for introducing me to Cider, a drink ive seldom bothered with in the past. I had to admit i was pleasantly surprised and a drink i will certainly turn to again when the Bitter in a pub is a bit ropey.
