Still raining. I’m on the bus today but obviously that still involves getting wet.
L’s ill, although naturally she won’t admit it.
I’m out in Derby with the guys from my old school tonight. There was supposed to be a new recruit tonight but he cancelled at the last minute, perhaps next time. Although it’s so difficult to co-ordinate three of us, I’m not sure four is even possible.
After a couple in the Brunswick we head into the city centre. In an effort to avoid the Europa Cup Final that one of us (not me) is taping, we have to eschew anywhere that might be showing it. We end up in the Slug and Lettuce, which is not somewhere I’ve been before. Well, not while its been a Slug and Lettuce, I’ve been in it in its half a dozen or so previous incarnations.
They have a few real ales, including a Derby Brewery beer, so that tempts us in but it’s in poor shape. The food menu is fairly interesting and the curry I choose is tasty enough or would have been if it hadn’t been overcooked, probably remicrowaved. Service is slow too, so I don’t think we’ll be rushing back.
