Guinness Coasters From Lidl.

 I received another gift from my wife's shopping adventures in Lidl the other day:


Aren't  they great?  I remember when you would peel off the  front off a beer mat and use it to write on the now blank card?  Beer mats are also great for putting under a wobbly chair or table.

I haven't been in a pub since August 2019.  I would love to see beer mats being used again.

  10. The good old days YP. There was no need for Karaoke machines, jukeboxes or Sky News. Revellers could make their own bar room entertainment with a few beer mats.

    1. I used to like a good old-fashioned fist fight at the end of the night. Nowt better than the crunch of a nose.
