If only I could spend a pleasant evening chatting with some other pancreatically challenged types… well now you can. If this is your dream (and why wouldn’t it be) come along to the latest Shoot Up meet up in sunny Liverpool.
We’ll be in the hugely glamorous (well, it does reasonable beer and is near Queens Square bus station and Lime Street train station, what more do you want?) Doctor Duncan’s pub, St John’s Lane, Liverpool on Saturday 14 April from 7.30pm. Tim and his better half Katie have agreed to leave the confines of Scotland and travel down to sunny Liverpool for the weekend, so they’ll be there along with me and my long suffering husband Geoff.
If you’re dubious about meeting some weird folks off the interweb all alone (which is perfectly understandable), fear not, all are welcome – the pancreatically challenged, long/short suffering partners, friends, family, random people you meet on your way.
You’ll be able to spot us by the fruit pastilles on the table, the slight smell of insulin and the loud sobbing as we collectively bemoan our broken pancreases. Or we might just do what we’ve done on previous nights out and have a jolly chat, in which case we’ll be the happy ones talking over a beer, but the fruit pastilles will be there in any case.
It’s nice to have a rough idea of numbers, so do leave us a comment here if you’re thinking of coming, or you can email alison@shootuporputup.
