Laying horizontally across my psychiatrist's sofa the other day, staring up at the giant map of County Devon on the ceiling, she asks "... so Si, what makes you TICK?"
"The Good Beer Guide and a green Stabilo" I reply.
She slams shut her notebook in despair and declares there is no hope. The session is over.
OF COURSE this didn't really happen. It was just a really brilliant joke by me, just now.
I'd be furious if she gave up that quickly anyway, for my imaginary psychiatrist charges an absolute fortune. And no 50p off vouchers to soften the blow either.
Where was I? Oh yes, HAPPY GOOD BEER GUIDE DAY!!
I 'declared' on 2024 net pubs on Saturday 30th October, in the very nice Orange Tree, Baldock.

The new GBG arrived Monday 1st November 13:35pm, just when I thought all hope had gone for a last post (even Paisley had it before me, and has a GBG 'Spoons called the Last Post which is kind of meta if you think about it).
