I had a delightful day out to a localish village/town with my wonderful, superb friend Yahoo. We shopped, browsed, had lunch and even sneaked a coffee and chocs.
|Me holding my teabag on a spoon|
I had a cup of tea at lunchtime with my baguette. ....but there was nowhere to put my teabag - was it unreasonable for me to ask "Where can I put my teabag please?" and waited for the waitress to bring me a saucer and dispose of it for me. Yahoo thought I was being akward but its a fair question. She says she finds people who drink tea always find fault - i.e. its too weak, it's too strong, it's too milky..... nothing wrong with that I say!
When our baguettes arrived, Yahoo had a problem with the fact that they didn't look like baguettes but oversized rolls......
|Yahoo - Should a baguette be crusty and long or soft and fat?|
What do you think? Personally I think that Baguette eaters always find fault!!!!
We found a fabulous little charity shop that sold some brilliant things. She bought a set of Art Deco Tableware and I bought these:-
|English Butter Dish|
GORGEOUS - Huffle is going to give them to me for Christmas - I know I shouldn't but they were English China and so adorable I just couldn't resist....... and only £12.95 for the lot! BARGAIN. 1960's Soho Pottery.
We then found a little Chocolate Bar (not the one's you eat but an actual Chocolate Cafe). We indulged in two chocs and a coffee each
|Yahoo had Pink Champagne (well she would) and a salted caramel|
|...and I had a Baileys Truffle and A White Choc Truffle. YUMM|
Just some random pictures to show you:-
|Saw these in a shop and thought I could make some!|
|I'm not sure if you can see this picture well but there is a lovely old snow shoe - ahhhh I want some of those.|
I'm writing this earlier than usual today because I am out this evening with The Moral Guardians - I'm sure I'll have plenty to write about tomorrow.
