Food and more food!

Increasingly, we’re both a little bit more conscious of what and how much we eat these days – so today was going to be a challenge! Not so much quaLITY but quanTITY. Potentially, there was a big chance we could easily over-eat – and no doubt, pay the price the following day! ๐Ÿ˜• First stop …

Return to the other George!

A welcome return to the newly refurbished ‘other’ ‘The George’ today – the Pub/Bistro/Hotel in Buckden. Since we were last here back in April 2019, the place has had a complete makeover – not just the eatery but the whole Hotel!

The Wheatsheaf – Again!

We returned to The Wheatsheaf in Titchmarsh today to meet up with good friends Mick and Jane.

Return to The Wheatsheaf

We met up with Mick & Jane at The Wheatsheaf in Titchmarsh today. Gosh, we haven’t been here for quite a few years. My blog says November, 2016 (also with Mick & Jane)๐Ÿค” – but we do have more friends and do know more Pubs, honest! It’s fair to say we’ve been great supporters of …

Return to Great Oxendon

A new year and time to begin resuming many of the enjoyable routines from 2021! ๐Ÿ‘ And one of those routines is our regular lunch date with friends and neighbours, David and Valerie. Living where we do means that we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to eateries on our doorstep. We could probably find …

Christmas 2021 ๐ŸŽ…

How was your Christmas? For us, as I begin penning this during the week leading up to the big day, I really didn’t think we would STILL be worrying about Coronavirus! Why worry? The dreaded Omicron variant was spreading and there was the potential for the Government to lock us all down again! Almost ‘right …
