I played (nerf) tenpin bowling with Nils and Koko on Christmas Day and drank Jimbo’s homebrew ale on Boxing Day. But it’s not been all beer and skittles.

I would have plumped for three, but I suspect the third will wait until the first week of March to coincide with my twelve hour flight to London.
