It was off to our good friends Nick and Celina today for lunch and a quick teach-in to boost my Excel skills. It was good to see their place since our last visit. – two-and-a-bit acres plus a horse and a tractor made it more of a tour than a simple visit!
It was turning into another scorcher of a day and after Excel was sorted it was off to the Tollmarche Arms – about a twenty-minute drive away – for lunch… and maybe a few beers!
Wow!, the food was amazing! It’s probably the best burger I’ve EVER had!
…and it would have been rude not have a dessert wouldn’t it!!!!
Suitably stuffed, we headed back to N & C’s.. and a bit more Excel (which was a lot harder after our lunch!). Wendy and David (Celina’s Mum and Dad) dropped in, and we had a quick natter before saying our goodbyes and heading home.
By now it was even warmer, but luckily, the AC in the car kept us cool. After a quick ‘feet-up’ at home, we tackled the challenge of cleaning Ann’s car – which came up a treat!
A busy but really enjoyable day with more tomorrow as we head for Roger, Jane and Oliver’s to meet up with Denis and celebrate his 87th birthday!
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!
