According to Yell.com, Gloucester has three Thai places...

Taste of Thai - 117-119 Southgate St, Gloucester, Gloucestershire GL1 1UT
The Blue Thai Kitchen - 19 St. Aldate St, Gloucester, Gloucestershire GL1 1RP
Bangkok in UK - 5 Park Rd, Gloucester, Gloucestershire GL1 1LH

...plus some place called "Vinings" at The Docks, which does a Thai/Indian buffet, although if it was me, I'd stick with the first three I mentioned - buffet places often do very average food and you can usually get a pretty reasonable meal for the same price as the buffet at a table service restaurant. I'd rather have a normal sized meal rather than spending the same ammount gorging myself on all you can eat.

I was surprised by the number of Thai places in Nottingham when I did my research, I only knew of one, but it turns out we've got five (plus one in Beeston).

We have a nice thai place that is about 20 seconds from where we live, we use to go for the all you can eats, but now we opt for quality over quantity.
The place near us does a wine called Monsoon Valley wine too - which (if you get the right one) is really really nice.

Your food always sounds nice, You'll have to bring samples to bloodstock for us to try :D.

Given the number of people on this forum, that would mean a LOT of cooking.

For some reason, not sure why, I was thinking this morning about whether I should make some home made limeade or ginger beer to bring with me to BOA and other festivals this year, but given the level of randomness that goes on at ALL festivals and the colour of the drinks, I'd probably get so many people asking me if it was piss that I was drinking that it would be more trouble than it was worth. :lol:

I have a feeling it is going to be a good day.
We woke up early and had a nice big pot of coffee waiting for us, and my guy made us bacon rolls (not just a pretty face).
Later on today my parents are coming and we are heading to Ascot to have a look at the venue we like. :D .

Dunno if it's a mistake on the Lotto website, but it says next week's jackpot has shot up to £85M. I think that's odd, cos this week's jackpot was about £37M. One hell of a jump.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!

Ooo where abouts?

I think im in Frankfurt in about 2 months if my bank allows me. Just got back from Poland. My bank fucking hates Poland money withdrawals.

I went to Krakow last year and we couldn't draw money out of any hole in the walls, its not your bank its poland that hates us!

I'm in Stuttgart, well actually I'm staying in Backnang which is outside where my friends lives. We may actually bother exploring today rather than just drinking and learning german drinking songs, as amazing as they are!
