I’ll just get the fire extinguisher.

Morning comes and I head down stairs, I get showered and changed and

start to cook breakfast. I seem to have a problem though. I seem to cook way too much for one person each time.

I go and collect my mom and then we head  into Cannock centre for a shop. I seem to buy lots of stuff. The main Items I wanted though were a telephone extension cable and an TV aerial extension cable.

We stop for dinner at the Weatherspoons, a nice little pub in the center.

We choose from the menu and

 IMG_20140927_131438_622

for a shade over a tenner we have pie and chips each and a drink.

Which is all I need after all those bacon sandwiches.

 IMG_20140927_132802_977

Yep I prefer it here to across the road, but only because there’s no flies.

 IMG_20140927_132820_708

And it seems popular too.

Now I’ve never noticed before, but in the centre of Cannock the green is infact a bowling green. how quaint. I drop my mom back home, pack loads of stuff into my car, including my main PC and head home with a full boot once more. But onthe way back I want something if they still have them.

I headed to the garden center and remembered what the girl told me the last time I got one of these for my moms birthday. “there are some still hidden up in the cafe area”. I go to the cafe area and look around. I’m in look, there’s a couple around. I pay and then sit her in the car. I’ve got a fairy I’d like you to meet.

Back at home I look into the garden and consider, where am I going to put my Buddha and that grass needs mowing again brilliant.

 IMG_20140927_163855_194

I put the Buddha on the tree stump and get out my own personal mower for the first time.

IMG_20140927_163858_284

Oh the joy of the smell of grass being cut once more.

IMG_20140927_165309_339

And a short time later the task is done.

IMG_20140927_165314_137

I enjoy the Buddha its perfect, and then consider weather i have time to cut the front headge back or to paint the gate.

IMG_20140930_183346_500

I decide on the gate. Which seemed like a good idea until I ran out of paint three quarters of the ay through the job! Brill.

It was too late to go and get anymore and my brother had turned up! Not to help but to go to the pub across the road and have a couple of pints in The Piped Piper.

IMG_20140927_201420_729

It was surprisingly welcoming and freidnly and the beer was £2 a pint of Banks Bitter, well until the end of the month we were told. then it would be £2.25. Well we nearly fell off our seats at that. They told us about the area and where to go and after a couple of pints it was time to

IMG_20140927_203324_388

head to a curry house that Les of all people had recommended. Well he had recommended it via his brother who loves hot as you can get it food.

IMG_20140927_204507_627

As we settle down at a table and look at the menu I notice there’s no beer on the menu. I look around everyone has brought their own. I call a waiter over and double check. Nope they don’t serve alcohol, and so I tell them I’m just leaving and will be back shortly to order.

IMG_20140927_204955_596

I come back from the Nisa and they have provided popadoms to munch on whilst we look through the extensive menu.

IMG_20140927_205626_518

We start with Tiger beers which is followed by Carlsberge when

IMG_20140927_210920_076

the wait appears with our starters. As he puts down my dish he says “good luck sir I hope god is with you”. “ what I say?” “ and he replies “I’m just off to get the fire extinguisher for you sir – your going to need it”

IMG_20140927_212402_360

As I eat my chilli pakora I see them watching me over bar the non alcoholic bar. There’s no doubt about it these things are hot, but I don’t cry and I carry on munching until I need more beer. I call one of them over quickly. “You need water sir?” He asked. “Nope” I replied, “ I need this bottle of beer opening and promptly too.” He smiled and dashed away to bring a bottle opener. We have a long chit chat on his return and another waiter brings over some menus to take home and

IMG_20140927_212653_894

Some keyrings, with their number on of course so I can call them anytime.

IMG_20140927_212840_460

The curries come and are delicious. but we all know what truly makes a good curry or not.

IMG_20140927_213027_872

Weather the nan breads are up to scratch. And whilst the nans aren’t as good as at Jivans they certainly aren’t bad.

IMG_20140927_220004_498

Nice enough to come back to that's for sure, even if it is like an 80’s disco in here.

IMG_20140927_220424_326

Well some one thought it was good once.

IMG_20140927_220953_797

So do you fancy a pudding then brother? Nope well lets get the bill and walk home.

IMG_20140927_221728_234

Now there certain places you shouldn’t walk alone, and you should never forget those places as most of the time they are the most deserted streets to walk, or so I have found.

IMG_20140927_225632_084

Back home we try to watch Doctor Who, but

IMG_20140927_225758_643

I fell alseep again, and whilst my brother woke me up 3 times, I woke alone in the living room. He’d gone to bed hours ago and so I made my way up to my room too. I think I’m going to regret drinking all that beer……
