Jo and Janet picked us up at midday and we headed over to Pete and Chris’s. We haven’t been over to theirs for quite a while and it was good to catch up.

A glass of Prosecco each welcomed us before we tucked into the main event.

Lunch, as always was first class – with a choice of Starters, Mains and Desserts. I was able to easily steer round my Lent List for this year and happily tucked into…


Homemade Mackerel Paté…


Pork with a Tomato & Herb Topping…


…and finally, Apple Bread & Butter Pudding

We finished-off the Meal with a cuppa and ended up chatting for ages. Given our backgrounds, the conversation eventually turned to the latest Sainsbury restructure. With the whole of food retailing currently going through a c-change – with shoppers’ habits changing – it wasn’t necessarily a cause for celebration, but it was necessary!

On a more positive note, it’s only 10 working-days until Janet retires!

We headed for home around 4.30.

Any comments?
