L says there were showing something about a bike accident on the TV in the gym. Ugh. Not sure they ought to be showing stuff like that in the gym. It’s not very inspiring.
She says she nearly threw herself on top of me this morning to stop me cycling. Ok, so perhaps it's not such a bad idea after all.
They held the first Champion Beer of Nottinghamshire competition this week. We have an impressive 25 breweries now in Nottinghamshire and each one was asked to enter their most popular beer.
I didn't go down, partly because the first chance to go would have been Saturday and these things are usually dry by then. Also I thought it would be a poor range if they're all tasked with sending their most popular ales and that our once Champion Beer of Britain in 2010 (but actually rather dull) - Castle Rock’s Harvest Pale would win but it didn't. They didn't even enter it. A dark ale won! Ape Ale from Blue Monkey but... isn't Blue Monkey from Ilkeston in Derbyshire? Originally, yes, but unbeknown to me the brewery has now sneaked across the border into Giltbrook.
Might have to go have a look next year.
