You get those days where every meal seems to be an elaborate concoction of variations on ‘meat and three veg’ and other days where sandwiches seem to be the order of the day. Yesterday was neither of those, but something down the middle. Breakfast was unremarkable. The Royal Wedding (yes, it had to get a mention) was watched at home, feet up, finishing off the easter eggs over a cup of coffee. This flowed seamlessly into an ‘eat up the remains’ lunch – basically bread and butter together with anything Simon had left in the fridge! An hour or two later we found ourselves consuming a cream tea with friends who had opened their apple blossom-filled farm in aid of Church funds. Somehow we managed to enjoy scones, jam and cream, walking off the calories wandering amongst the trees (my new wild flower identification book – pocket sized – came into its own here). Barely an hour after we returned home it was time to stroll over to the village hall with a plate of sandwiches to put on the ‘bring and share’ table, and a bag with drinks and glasses – it being a byo drink event. Two hours spent in the company of friends and neighbours discussing all sorts of things – including ‘That Dress’ and then we wandered home in good time to settle down to watch P&P Keira Knightley style. (Not forgetting to point out ‘back-ground Andy’ when he appeared on screen. See Colin for explanation.) This was washed down with coffee.
So all in all an eating sort of day, but ne’er a lamb chop among us!
So it’s ham and eggs today!
