Drunk at the Ginfest......!!

Yesterday lunchtime, we went into Brighton to meet up wiv Vicky.  We saw this fun Union Jack on the way!!

And another grafitti cable box!

And a statue of Max Miller!  Who's he?

Then we walked down another road and saw an octopus!!!

Then we got here!  We were meeting Vicky for something but we got here first....

Oh wow!  Look at that!!  This building used to be part of the Royal Pavilion building - something like the stables but we're not sure...


When Vicky arrived, we had to wait in line to get into something called Ginfest.  But the line moved fairly quickly, and we got a Free Goodie Bag (pics later) and then went went in to a big room that had bucketloads of gin to try!!!  Vicky bought a token ticket that let us try four different gins (she was really nice and let me and Andrea have slurps out of each one!!) and she even let me pick one of the gins to try!!

I chose this one because it was last on the list and I felt sorry for it being last on the list.  BUT it was SCRUMTASTIC!!!!  All of us thought this one was the best!!!!  It was a violet sherbert sort of a gin and was proper pukka!!!
I'm going to save up some pennies to buy a bottle of this!!

After that, we went out for lunch because we were all hungry - we went past this cable box on the way.

....and stopped here for food...... OH CRUD!  I can't stand up!  ......whoop....sie.........

Dohh..... what?  Oh!  Food..... yeh, right.  I'm hungry aren't I?

Oh now wait a minute.  This is baked camembert wiv bread and chutney..... oh now this is YUMMERS!

Oh that's better.... hic!!!
We went to meet Bev after this as she had some Very Important Shopping to do..... this shoe shop!!

She tried on loads and loads AND LOADS of shoes and eventually found a pair small enough for her feet!!  She was Very Happy!!!  We gave her a round of applause afterwards, too!

Then we went off to Vicky's house and found a new cable box on the way.

Bev got me a present!!!!!

Vicky cooked us dinner of beef wic Brokly an rice wiv chicken saytay an spring rolls and prawn toasts and other yummy bits.  It was all yum!!  Afterwards we watched the Minions and then Andrea was tired and couldn't stop yawning so we decided to come home!

And on the way back, we met our friend Cat and stopped for a chat!!!

Cat is ever so friendly and loves having a chat with us!

I found a button while we were out as well!

And this is what we got from the gun fest - a big shopping bag, our own gin glass (important for when I get my bottle of last on the list gin), a stick of rock and a Beanie Pencil - I can use that wiv my Mouse Book that Bev gave me!!
What a fab day out?!?!?!?!!

The Sunshine Blogger Award!


 Sullivan McPig nominated me for The Sunshine Blogger Award.

The Sunshine Blogger Award is a sort of electronic chain letter (for those who are old enough to remember when communication by mail required stamps) and is given to those who are inspiring and bring sunshine into the lives of their readers and fellow bloggers through their blogspace and/or their social media. 

The Rules
The Sunshine Blogger Award does not operate in an atmosphere of chaos, ergo there are rules as follows:
- Name drop and link to the blog of the person who nominated you.
- Answer the eleven questions from the blogger who nominated you.
- Nominate up to eleven wonderful bloggers and write (or borrow/steal) eleven questions for them to answer.

Sullivan's questions are
1. What is your favorite scary movie?
Tough one to answer.  Boston Strangler with Tony Curtis is a favourite but not super dooper scary. Footsteps in the Fog with Stewart Granger is a wonderful black & white Sherlock Holmes/Jack the Ripper style twist on a twist on a twist movie too.  But I still haven't watched Nosferatu yet either.
2. Zombies or Vampires?
Definitely Vampires!!
3. What movie or book do you turn to if you want to be cheered up?
The Tough Guys (movie) with Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas.  It's hilarious!!!
4. If you could be an animal for a day, what animal would you want to be?
What's wrong wiv being a mouse?
5. There's a hippo chewing on your electrical wiring. What do you do?
Turn the power off!  Wouldn't want Hippo to get Mouth Burn......
6. What's the scariest thing you ever did?
I rode on an air o'plane a couple of times and Andrea jumped out of one with a parachute once.
7. Would you rather be king/queen or the power behind the throne?
The power behind the throne.  That way I can make all the decisions but the king or queen gets the shit for.
8. You suddenly turned into a T-Rex. What's the first thing you're going to do?
9. Star Wars or Star Trek?
Star Trek.
10. If you could star in a movie, what kind of movie would you want to be in?
I'd want to be in a 1940s or 1950s black & white "Golden Age" movie where men were Tony Curtis, John Wayne or Stewart Granger and women were Maureen O'hara, Rita Hayworth or Lauren Bacall.  And the title song was sung by Frank Sinatra and Liza Minelli.  You know, REAL movies.....
11. What would be the title of your autobiography? 
The Big Squeak

My questions are
1.  You borrow the Tardis and can go to any town, any country, any time period.  Where do you go and what time period is it?
2.  During your travels on the Tardis, you board the Mary Celeste on its' final voyage before it's mysteriously abandoned.  Would you tell?!
3.  Why (not)?
4.  After discovering what happened, you then travel to visit your favourite historical person (royalty/artist/musician/author/politician/whoever)  Who is it?
5.  After chilling with them for a while, you decide to investigate another mystery in another time period.  Which one would it be? 
6.  Finally, you decide to retire to a Royal Court anywhere in the world, any time period.  Which one?
7.  You're visiting London for the first time.  Get around by bus or underground?
8.  Starsky and Hutch or Cagney and Lacey?
9.  You win the Presidential/General Election and rule your country.  What's the first rule you make?
10. Regular Navy or Pirate ship?
11.  You buy an old locked wooden box from an estate sale/yard sale/boot sale that looks old and dusty and when you get it home, you find a key stuck to the bottom.  You open the box and inside is.......

As for nominating:
I'm bad at nominating.
I'm going to put some names down here of people who I think are inspiring and bring sunshine into the lives of their readers and fellow bloggers, if you see your name and feel like answering my questions: go ahead, but if you don't want to, you don't have to.  But if you feel like answering the questions anyway, please do, and accept the Sunshine Blogger award anyway!!!!!
Jerry and Ben.
Alexander Mackenzie Bear.
