Happy birthday, Emma-Jean.
I went to Bristol yesterday. It was more interesting than I was lead to believe. If you ever go I suggest staying in Clifton, which is up the hill and has great views, rather than in the city, which is down the hill and has great industrial areas. You can easily get down to the interesting bits of the city, but it's much nicer to eat and sleep in the green space and fresh air (I expect).
I couldn't find the RPG meetup
group at the venue, even though ten people attended. I should have better luck tonight as the Blake's 7 meetup
has a room booked.
