    It's a tourist trappy sort of town, but there's a little shop down the road as well as your standard pubs/restaurants/cafes.

    I think there's a bigger shop if you go towards Cromford, but I never walked that way.

    There will be a plethora of cars, and i will be buying some basic provisions for the weekend to tide us over. We tend to go out for evening meals now as, fuck, its nightmarish cooking for 20+ people.

    Its safe to say that most of us are introverted.

    Last year we basically had a room where there was 10 of us on Laptops, gaming (not with each other), but just chilling in each other's company, having a good natter, making drinks and tea.

    Had a Civ 5 tournament. Was ace :D

    We do kind of but people do their own stuff mostly. Gone are the days of 20kg of Haribo...

    Last year we did a basic shopping list, and it was bought online or via costco.

    Yeah the Acado delivery was a pretty good shout. as usual a fair few bits left over but not nearly as much hassle.

    I in no way expect any cooking to be done, it's such a big task. Always appreciated though ;)

    My cookery knowledge consists of noodles, baked beans, and if it's a desperate situation I can also boil pasta.

    By the way, if I end up coming and get a lift from you, would you be able to tell me the route incase there's anywhere easier for me to go than up to manchester and back down again.

    Also, is there a microwave down there? It's a bit unusual, but my eyes get pretty sore easy and I use an eyebag to heat my eyes most mornings and night, which helps with the soreness.

    Yeah there is one. There's everything.

    And dunno, depends whats the easiest for you. I live near Altrincham/Sale area in south Manchester.
    Manchester centre is a bit of a ball ache but I make a an event of the drive down as its a good excuse for a scenic drive.

    you know, i checked for long light novel titles and got "I'm a successful light novel author at a boy's high school, but I'm being strangled by a female classmate who's a voice actress and is younger than me"

    and i'm kinda interested in it
