We arrived in England 8 years ago, yesterday and I started writing this blog a month later. I’ve done this annual tribute every year since. This one is short. Here are the highlights:
I became a British Citizen 3 months too late to vote in the Brexit Referendum.
I ran in the Wales Marathon and stopped, en route, at some pubs (which may not surprise regular visitors to these pages).
I drank in 260 new pubs bringing the tally to 1722. Moving house to the outskirts of London made the difference, here…before the move, the number of new pubs was 51 (in 6½ months); after the move, the virgin running territory yielded the other 209.
Drunken Bunny Liqueurs has branched out to include brewing with a mead in the works (started a month ago but not yet bottled and will need a year of rest, thereafter). Reports on this will follow, in due time.
Year 9 is starting rainy and cold and with an 11 mile training run to steer past (or, rather, through) a pub. Here’s to the same old stuff for another round.
