Nick and Celina are joining us today – they’re here all day today and are leaving after brekky tomorrow – we’re really looking forward to seeing them again.
Just after 1pm they arrived in their shiny new Honda. What a gorgeous looking car! We caught up with all their news including Celina’s ‘little project’ involving a B and B in Haworth, West Yorkshire – must help them out with a web-site for it.
Then, after a quick bite to eat, we headed off to Houghton Mill near Huntingdon. It’s a National Trust property, near the river and features a working Mill – quite unusual these days. The place was already quite busy mainly because the weather was gorgeous – and maybe because some people didn’t want to be at home watching the Cup Final!
We took a look around the Mill, starting upstairs and working down – amazing stuff. We then spent a couple of hours looking round the surrounding area and finished with an ice-cream each from the shop.
We left around 4pm heading home to Pimm’s and nibbles. We sat out for about an hour before settling down to watch Transporter 3 on Blu-Ray DVD. Not a bad film – stunts, excellent…storyline, poor…Jason’s eight-pack, unbelievable!
Around 9pm we sat down for our evening meal. Ann had prepared a spicy prawn dish for starters followed by Lamb cooked with rosemary with loads of vegetables – including fennel (which by a majority vote, got the thumbs down). Dessert consisted of a raspberry soufflé kind of dish – very scrummy. It was all finished off with cheese and biscuits…and Port (fatal for us two…we’re going to have thick heads in the morning!!)
We sat out until 10.45 – it was a perfect evening – putting the world right and drinking far too much – the blue recycling box will be heavier this week! It then got a little cool so we came indoors and continued our conversations whilst attempting to rescue the kitchen from its somewhat disorganised state!
We eventually got to bed around midnight…
