Steve popped over for our normal three-monthly get-together and we went for lunch at our standard haunt: Hobson’s Choice.
Actually, it’s been slightly longer than three months, as I noticed we last saw each other back in March.
Steve brought a selection of wedding pictures with him showing-off his daughter’s wedding in France – plus a few of him doing his speech (that apparently went down extremely well!)
Both being of ‘deep-pockets’, we opted for the menu containing two-meals-for-a-tenner!
We went for our usuals: Fish and Chips for Steve and Sausage and Mash for me. Service was as efficient as ever although it did take them three attempts to pour me a successful John Smith’s!
We spent so much time nattering, Steve was nearly late leaving for his appointment with the bank manager. A swift exit was required, but we were slightly hindered by some ‘wheelchair-rage’ where one chair was exiting and one was arriving through the same door as us, all at exactly the same time! The door-frame just wasn’t wide enough and so everyone ground to a halt, rather like nervous L–drivers arriving at a busy roundabout!!
It’s been great to catch-up. We said our good-byes and plan to try and get together one more time before Christmas – probably in November.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
