Bye bye Felix

Monday, September 21st, 2009 | Friends

Sunday was our last Sunday outing with Felix for a while :(. Indeed such a special occasion such that it was I had to reschedule my previously arranged date (ha, it just couldn’t fit togethey any better could it :p ) so see Felix off.

Then we went to Nando’s.

Just Nando’s.

It’s a sad state, but the excitement has gone. Living 100m from Nando’s means that it is still very much enjoyable but not quite as magical as it once was. I am only one more stamp away from being able to claim my free whole chicken!

Felix himself is off to go on to bigger and better things. Or he was when he was planning to go to Cardiff University, now he’s going to Hull so arguably it’s more of a sideways movement from McDonald’s 😀 . I love you Felix, come back soon!

Because we need stamps

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009 | Friends, Life

Sunday evening I met up with Felix and Craig as usual. Unfortunately Zoe had to work the next morning so couldn’t come and Becky’s too far under Leanne’s thumb to dare come out without Leanne’s permission so it was just the three of us.

Not that, that really brought things down as it meant we had a bit more freedom in where to eat and so went for a nice predictable choice 😀 . We ended up at Nando’s at Kirkstall so me and Craig could get some more loyalty stamps – indeed Craig had made it as a far as a free quarter chicken. Only seven more to go until the whole!

As part of our social life on a budget, we headed out to KFC on Sunday for a spot of dinner, especially given the new wraps are out. I didn’t like have a wrap or anything but I did take a look at the wraps that Craig and Zoe got which I feel was adventurous enough.

Afterwards we headed to The Podger with Craig having a quick pint before heading back home leaving me and Felix to have a far more drawn out one discussing sex, money, rock ‘n roll, etc (at least when he wasn’t flirting with a certain someone else on the phone – the cheek!).

Pub sandwich

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009 | Friends, Life

I think we have perfected Sunday nights.

It now starts at the pub, then we go for some food, then we go back to the pub.

It’s a winner 😀 . Actually it then involves even more food as afterwards you have to the KFC to pick up some ice cream as well but that just adds to the whole experience. You really can’t beat a final evening of food and drink before returning to work on Monday morning.

Unfortunately though our landlord turned up as I was walking out the door asking if we could clean the whole house by tomorrow as he had a potential tenant coming round to look at it which resulted in me having to do some cleaning when I got back. Luckily Michelle and Norm took care of most of it while I was out though so there wasn’t that much to do.

The Podger

Thursday, May 21st, 2009 | Friends, Life

Having had a rather lazy weekend (for me anyway lol) I headed over to The Podger on Sunday night for a quick drink or two.

It turns out that pubs change quite a lot in a decade.

It probably hasn’t quite been a decade since I was last in there but I bet it isn’t far off. It’s quite nice in there, I managed to avoid any weird looks from wearing my A-Soc hoodie which is always nice. Throw in a few drinks and beating Craig at pool and what more can you ask for? 😀

Sleepy Sundays

Monday, May 4th, 2009 | Friends, Life

Having got to bed for the first time in a few days in the early hours of Sunday morning I found myself waking up and checking my phone to see it was 7:30pm! So I got up, headed out to the pub for a few drinks, grabbed some food and then came home and went back to bed. If only every day could be like that 😀 .

Sunday night fun

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009 | Events, Life

Last Sunday we headed down to The Mill to celebrate my dad’s birthday. It being full though we decided to leave. True story. We ended up at the Brown Cow, now known as the Brown Cow & Dragon for some Thai food. Not that I got Thai food of course but it was nice to know I had the option.

Afterwards I headed down to grab a quick drink at The Mill with friends from work before heading for an early night, of starting work 🙁 . I ended up getting to bed just before 4am but caught up on most of my work. Fun times.

Return to the Colonel’s house of chicken

Saturday having been a cheap night I decided my budget could squeeze a bit of an evening on Sunday, especially given my parents had been kind enough to throw me some going out money as an Easter present and so headed down to meat everyone at KFC – we’re all skint at the moment so not doing real restaurants. We also grabbed a quick drink at The Mill while we were down there so all in all an enjoyable and rather budget evening score.

Return to Nando’s

Sunday, March 29th, 2009 | Friends, Life

People being very unoriginal and lazy (not to mention late) we were forced to repeat a restaurant tonight. Still at least we did it in style with Nando’s as you can never have too much chicken. Rich went for hot this time and after pointing out my lack of nerves for only going for medium proceeded to struggle to eat his food because it was too hot 😀 .

Afterwards we headed for some ice cream and I finally met our new store manager Matt who seems like a decent enough guy even if we barely exchanged any words. Still I’m sure I’ll find out in full next Saturday.

Sunday nights at The Mill

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009 | Friends, Life

Having arrived home on Sunday I headed straight back out the door again to meet everyone at Colton Mill for a few drinks. Our Sunday night activities seem to be getting later and later, it is something that we really should work on even if I do really need the time to get more work done.
