Main event for today was celebrating the new year at the Plough and Anchor pub. Ate and drank with Keith Baldwin, Vicki Dunckley, Vera Gordon, Austin Lovell ,Hugh Gordon, George Stanton, Annie Stanton.
We had an excellent buffet supper. Left the P&A sometime past 1, had a coffee with Keith and Vicki and eventually got to bed at 3.00.
Today David and Joan Atkinson, came over for lunch bringing with them Winnie. The day was dry and sunny. We had pitta bread and humus for starter and then for mains the Garry Rhodes two salmons.
The two salmons recipe is one piece of fried, fresh fried salmon fillet, and another piece of steamed, cold smoked salmon fillet served on a bed of mash potato and leak. All served with a butter sauce. Very good.
Afters was another Garry recipe of Cranberry Jelly.
They stayed for tea and left leaving Winnie for us to take back to her house on Sunday.
Out for shooting at 10.30. Whole family went to the shoot, Selina did not shoot, but Graham the boy friend shot very well for someone who has not held a gun. The weather was warm, but windy and likley to rain at any time.
Vicky from next door brought her son (Matt), who had shot for the English team when younger. You could see from the way he shot he was in another league from us.
Next back to the Plough and Anchor for lunch and lots of beer. Had a special treat of the beer Spitfire.
