    All welcome to Ye Olde Milestone Inn! The bar is open!



    Share your milestones here, and let's all raise a virtual (or real, your call, the landlady takes no responsibility for any resulting real life drunkenness) glass to each others success.

    To start us off *tings spoon on side of glass to quiet down rowdy DFW crowd of revellers* my debts have this month ducked under £10,000

    *downs pint of martini and puts glass on head, staggering slightly*
