Social crochet

A village pub

3 friends

Tia Maria & coke, cider and Guinness, in case you’re curious about our drink choices

Delicious pub-grub meals (mushrooms in a creamy garlicky sauce, chilli, lamb koftas, fish & chips, more mushrooms, bangers & mash with onion gravy – if you’re curious about the drinks then it goes without saying that you also have a need to know what was eaten!)

A lot of chatter

Some sparkly Christmas crochet

After lots of the above and the landlord starting to whistle, which I always take as his hint that it’s time to make tracks, we wandered merrily to our homes.
A lovely evening.

*~*~*

I notice that I didn’t get the top of the star on the Christmas tree in the photo, but it’s better than the picture of the tree I took in the snug where we were sitting: there’s a lot of radiator, a wonky tree and a quarter of a beautiful old stone fire-place. Blame the drink(S)!

Red White & Blue London

Yesterday I met a group of friends to share some books, have a few drinks, some lunch and a wander by the Thames.

It was a perfectly sunny day as you’ll see, so I walked from Baker Street (Sherlock Holmes lived there you know, at least in lots of our imaginations!) grabbed some breakfast from M&S in Oxford street and walked down to Trafalgar Square to sit by a fountain to picnic and watch the world go by (and the minutes tick down to the Olympics) until a friend, G, came to meet me…

A perfect day full of laughing and fun.

Happy weekend to you all wherever you are. :-D

London, Bookcrossing, Snow & Crochet

It was a beautiful start to Saturday for a day in London with friends

We enjoyed a bit of bookswapping, chat, drinks and a nice lunch

When we left the next pub, where we had another quick drink, half of the books we’d left on the Boris bikes had gone.

Eeek!

Home for a warming cider, the last slice of tea-loaf and some crochet before bed.

Rock and Roll!
