Re: BE Meeting/Day Trips - Ideas Welcome

My thoughts exactly CJ. I'm the same - lots of people terrify me and the old "Dutch Courage" rears its ugly head. I haven't decided either way yet. We could find a big tree we could both hide behind :lol: .

Re: New Members - Please Introduce Yourself Here

Welcome Daenarys, Don't worry about the name - do you think my real moniker is Topcat? You can be anonymous or not, whatever you prefer. You might like to jump on the 7 Day Challenge where you'll meet others starting out on the road to sobriety, as Jake suggested. You'll find it under Sobriety Chall...

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

What tennis is that Boris? Must admit to being a grass fan (Wimbles of course) and clay irritates a bit, but it's better than nothing. Who's playing and where? What channel? I'm asking too many questions - shut up cat.

Re: Late lounge (& other non-UK locations...)

Tough luck JJ. I have a dilemma here. The veggie option is the one for me, but can I please, pretty please, have a Yorkshire pudding (or two) with it? I just love 'em? Yes, "Awkward" is my middle name.
