You know staying around the Poades means I get woken up by the Poades. The kids come into the room and jump all over me. Somehow I think its time to get up. Well that you be bounced on to death!
Some cornflakes and a lovely brew and the kids and Maddie go out leaving me to relax on the reclining sofas. Now that's nice.
It also means I get to play with the toys.
And with a bit of practise I come up with a work of art.
I’m not sure about this Saturday morning TV though, it appears to be scary.
Although they did draw a palm tree on the wall.
I find the energy to pack and leave eventually, taking in some fresh air.
There are some indications that we are in an area of wealth as I head towards the high street for the bus. Now where do you catch the bus into town again?
I get a ticket to Tame Bridge Parkway and head down to the platforms. I’m still finding the new part of the station disorientating.
In trundels The James Cook. Wow just look at those boogies.
My chu chu comes, I get on and put my bag on the rack while I get a table seat and relax.
Back at home, I sort my washing out and do some house work. My brother arrives and Les rings to say he is on the bus. We arrange to meet at the Roebuck. A pub at the end of the road I haven't been in for some time. When we get there Les is already finishing his first pint!
We have another there before heading to the Royal Oak.
Where Les claims he loves Cannock, if only for the cheap beer prices. We sit in the beer garden and enjoy the inferred heat warmers.
Next I take them to the new micro brewery pub the Newhall Arms.
A vast selection of craft beers on pull and in bottle form.
You could even think that your sitting in the middle of the forest next to a deer.
Okay that maybe an exaggeration.
Me I stick to beer, those two though, drink mango cider.
And it sure tastes like mango.
Being that we are in the town centre and not having a curry, it ample opportunity to try my first
Cannock Kebab after the pub.
oh so yummy if a bit dear a £5.80. In Aston a bigger one costs just £3.00
And with a full belly its time to go to bed.
