So, Leeds, Leeds, Leeds – in short, I won a Highly Commended in the best male category which is basically 4th / 5th place so hurrah to that, plus we also won highly commended as a Station and Silver (2nd) for female presenter.
A good, fun & drunken 3 days had by….well most really.
In Long – Friday morning, picked up at 10am, with Me, Stacie, Biba, and the Hart brother Ben and Jon, all manner of fun and chat ensued but in this instance “what goes on tour, stays on tour”
We took a minor detour off the M1 and headed off to find a ‘ickle country pub just outside Leicester (Sirloin Steak and a Pint in-case you wondering)
Roadworks, rain and naps then at 4:30pm we arrived at the Queens Hotel in Leeds City Centre (4 stars do you know)
Lovely rooms, showers décor etc, etc – after a late dinner, Myself, Matt, Biba, Stacie, And Jon head into town, that’s right, spending our Friday night on the town in Leeds.
Start at 10pm at Prohibition, (Cocktail Bar) onto All Bar One, then across the road to Karaoke
Matt being a non-drinker, insists on having an empty glass and straw just to, and I quote “I don’t want to be left out” – he also nearly started a fight by accidentally moonwalking into someone almost spilling their pint. No karaoke was had, too busy. Another Bar/club then back to the hotel, and at 2:15am Matt picks me up, and carry’s me into the fountain outside the hotel – thanks chairman. Sitting in a Kebab shop drying off, we all ate 10” pizza’s and found a top hat, then back to the Hotel and to bed at 3am.
Saturday morning, hangover – had a hotel breakfast of orange juice, orange juice, orange juice, Tea and orange juice, then out shopping for new shoes (thanks matt grrr)
Lazy Saturday day really shopping & browsing in Leeds – Dinner at 7:30pm – Awards from 9pm,
So nervous during the dinner I didn’t really eat – and had 3 toilets breaks while still on 1st pint.
After the awards – All went out trying to find a club/bar but instead we went back to Matt’s room, who was upgrade to a suite, playing 24 hour bingo and chatting and a-drinking, end at 4am* (*5am if you include the fact the clocks went forward)
Sunday Breakfast, another hangover then Sunday Roast, Check outs and back home after a 3 hour ride – we all slept in the car, That’s our Highly Commended Weekend
