Hey Polly

I have my life jacket on and ready for bed. But I thought I would ask a lady of your experience how will I keep my beer from floating away?? Dont think I will be able to sleep knowing it might not be there in the morning for breakfast


Ps Thanks for the warnings and keep up the good work!

1)Tie the fridge to a substantial part of the house, then if it floats away the house goes with it?
2)Stay up overnight and drink it?
3)Tell me where you are and I'll come round and help you drink it?

A few road closures around our way but not enough to stop me getting into work

Might be enough to stop me getting home though.
