I only went out for a couple of drinks with a mate and ended up hanging one on. God knows how many doubles (I stopped counting when I finished me peanuts). … More The road to mandolin
Five! Five is the first number I’ll start with today. If five people from my school turned up to my funeral, I would be gutted.
