Supporting the campaign for real ale

Busy day today, got things moving on the last of my to-be-done-in-March projects. (hurrah!) Later on we're off to do our bit to ensure that real ale continues to sell and sell well! The CAMRA beer festival arrives in Leeds today for the weekend and the venue is a mere stagger from our nest.

Ah, the taste of real ale, the camaraderie, the well-meaning backing band, the bizarre tombola prizes. It's always a magical mystery taste tour, but I'm also hoping to see some of my favourites, including Witches Brew and Summer Lightning. And yes, I did name my first ever novella after a beer. :-) Seemed like such a good name...oh and I was drinking the inspirational stuff at the time. Hehe. When I told fellow author Leigh Wyndfield where the title came from and about our love of real ale, she challenged me to write a story called Witches Brew as well. Ha. It may well happen yet. Especially if I've had a few glasses of the stuff...

Have fun at the Beer Festival! Himself and I go to a real ale pub on Saturday nights, and even though I don't drink, he has fun sampling a new bevvie each time he visits.

Thanks ladies, it was fun. Good to get away from the keyboard for a couple of hours ;-)
