Life (and work) is way too busy at the moment, hence the major lack of bloggage these last few months.
Anyway, I managed to find time to pop up to Cambridge this weekend: this time for the 4th Elysian Beer Festival (photos here). I’m sorry to say I’ve misplaced my festival beer list so I can’t tell you what I had and what I thought, but suffice it to say that the beer was of an excellent standard, and the free shuttle bus laid on by the kind people at the Live & Let Live in Cambridge was a great touch.
The following morning was nice and sunny, so Jim, Matt and I went of to Anglesey Abbey (photos here) for a walk. This was pleasant enough, but it would have been nicer if there were some flowers and things out - it must be much better in the summer — or even then spring!
Lunch was in the White Swan in Stow-cum-Quy, and was very tasty indeed (though not as good as last weeks lunch in the Fort St. George, which was accompanied by some exceptionally nice ale), and the afternoon was rounded off by some coffee and cake.
Anyway, Matt and Jim have both agreed to help out on the new BritBlog, so we had a good chat about the possibilities throughout the day. There are some great ideas coming up, and it will be great to get some of them in place for BritBlog.
I really miss not living in Cambridge and being able to throw ideas around with other like-minded people. I keep thinking of getting a job up there, but there are so many geeks in those parts it makes the competition a lot higher! Still, one day…
As I said, the new ideas for BritBlog are coming along nicely, so once our new web server is set up and in place we can start working on it properly.
Right, the oven should be warm now, so time to put the chicken in!
