Another day, another lunch with friends! I can certainly recommend retirement!
Today, we took a leisurely drive over to Uppingham to meet up with Nick and Celina. We started off by having a mooch round the town – always extra nice when it’s Market Day there. Amazingly, we got parked almost immediately too – that’s a first!! (especially on a Friday.
We arrived just ahead of N&C and quickly picked-up a few good deals: A Trapper Hat for £6 and some cable clips (for the recently re-wired Ethernet connection to the TV/DVD/Sky Q box) sold individually.
After a quick walk up and down, we decamped to The Falcon Hotel for a quick cuppa (I was limited to a ‘Lent friendly’ cup of black Earl-Grey tea!) and then took the short drive to The Old White Hart in nearby Lyddington.
The food didn’t disappoint, and I was soon tucking into Veal Schnitzel followed by Sticky Date Pudding with Liquorice Ice-Cream (without the Lent-busting latter!)
It was a long lazy lunch (surely the best type!) and we eventually said our goodbyes around 2.30.
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!
