Glad I’m not in the land of my fathers.

We’ve already got ours thankfully. Booths on the job.

Anyone else been reading the free Booths Xmas food catalogue/book? Always fun.

The Booths discount section is the most fascinating counter. Got a £50 wild Scottish salmon of it the other day for £10. Could barely carry it. Lovely. Now you now where the over ordered fillet steak goes.

I believe that Booths do a very acceptable range of 'pocket meats' and blood sausages.

Booths also the best for bin raiding. Once I got 35 packs of hot cross buns

Our record is 40 bottles of Wainwright and enough xmas trimmings to feed 50 people at The Farm for free one glorious New Year's Eve.
Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain,
And the stream that falls from hill to plain.

What in the name of god is pocket meat?  It sounds like a rather unpleasant euphemism.

You need to subscribe to the Athletico Mince podcast to discover the joys of pocket meat (and spewing snakes)

It's ok, you can still buy fags and booze in Wales, just don't forget a change of clothes for after caving...

The distance between stupidity and genius is measured only by success.
