Thursdays Impending [Aug. 12th, 2010|09:54 am]
Cityish Alt-ish Fortyish
I'm thinking of trying to be in the Penderel's Oak (near Holborn Tube, unless it's moved in the years I haven't been looking) next Thursday evening. We may be extraordinarily jetlagged and we've a train to catch absurdly early the following morning, so we may not last too long. I might aim to be there circa 6 pm, anyone interested in joining? We will be back in London towards the beginning of September, so there will probably be more chances to catch up with us.

The following Thursday, that's the 26th, we will be in OXFORD and the inhabitants of the house known as Templars are kindly making their living room available for a little soiree. If you are in Oxford and free that evening we'd love to see you, get in touch and I will give you addresses and so forth. We will be in the area for a few more days after that, so alternative get-togethers may be possible by arrangement.

In between those Thursdays - we'll be in North Wales. Thinking of possibly visiting Chester on the Saturday and then doing more Welsh stuff on the Sunday? You would be very welcome to join us on either day that weekend if you are of a north-westerly disposition. Or even during the weekdays following if you are really hardcore.

Organization is hard! I thought I'd given this kind of stuff the slip when I ran away to Canada :(

The Penderel's at 6pm would suit me admirably, as it is a few minutes away from my office.

Excellent! It could hardly have worked out any better if I HADN'T picked a pub at random from the dim recesses of my London memories.

I think I may be at a play on Thursday, but if not, I shall pop along.

It had better be a very good play! But as long as it is, you are excused.

Thursday at the Penderel's is fine (it hasn't moved) and I will probably also be able to make dates in early September.

I will be in Oxford on the 26th, but do not know the inhabitants of the Templars, so unsure if I'd be welcome?

You would be my honoured guest! Templars is all the way out in East Oxford, pretty much at the end of the Cowley Road...

Message me the details?

Saturday in Chester or in Fflint would suit me great next weekend :). Hopefully you can confirm one way or the other as to location before you leave?

I still have your mum's landline anyway, so drop call me on that at some point on Friday and we can arrange something :)

Not 100% sure about staying over on Saturday night yet, but will see...

I would be very happy to see you next Saturday! I'm sure we could put you up in Fflint somehow, if you wanted to stick around long enough to see D & K with us on the Sunday...

Well, I didn't want to impose on you and your mum in fflint! (also wasn't sure if the house was likely to be full of family either! ;-) ) Though I've at least got a camp bed that I can bring if necessary.

Are you still heading to Prestatyn to meet up with D&K on the Sunday? I've another friend (Pand) I can visit that way too, but only suggested to him to meet for a coffee. I can see what he's up to that day though...
