My first pint of real ale in a pub for longer than I care to remember!

Good to see a lot of the shops open.

Meeting Morph!

Met Morph in The Mall Cribbs Causeway earlier, a shame my youngest son Clifford isn't here. He loves Morph and watches him on Youtube.

Great to see a lot of people at the Mall today.
