I drove over to Peterborough today in Marco – its first long(ish) journey since taking ownership a few weeks ago. It’s running a lot faster now I’ve added red car mats! Putting fuel in it was like going back in time – 25 quid and the tank is now three-quarters full! (that’s a big difference to my previous car). Full Tank: c£35 Full Tank: c£100 (even with a wind turbine on the roof!!!!)
Alison had arranged a table at Café Clarkes, the restaurant inside the Key Theatre in Peterborough and although the place was empty when we got there, it did start to fill-up just as we left! The food punched well above its weight, and I successfully managed to navigate round my banned substances list for Lent and still have a very enjoyable meal.
We chose a table by the window, which initially seemed like a good move, but an hour-or-so later, we felt like we were in a greenhouse – still, with all the c*** weather recently, it was a nice problem to have!
See you later in the year Alison!
