The local pub was having a special Saint Georges day celebration with cheap London Pride, and G&T’s. Rosemary and I had booked and we arrived for our meal. We were placed at the table of the usual evening drinking crowd (George and Annie, the local Mazda car dealer, Peter the retired farmer who’s son farms 2000 acres near Westcott, Graham and Fran (he has done pretty well everything), Tony the guy who made our windows.
I had Steak and Kidney Pudding with bubble and squeak, while Rosemary had faggots. Very Traditional English fare. A few pints of beer and wine were had. Spotted Dick for afters.
Rosemary left at about 10.30 and I stayed on till midnight leaving last. A bit of a sore head the next day.
The tickets for the Golden Jubilee celebration are selling well, I have not bought mine yet. Must do it on Thursday otherwise as an organiser it would look bad not being there for the meal. The rope of the tug of war has been acquired.
We canned our planned trip to Wales because of the weather forecast. So instead we headed to Withshire. First we drove on on the B4057 and stopped off at the Uffington White Horse. This is the highest spot in Oxfordshire.
The we drove to Marlborough where we had lunch at Pollys. I had an excellent Smoked Salmon Pate, While Rosemary had a Brie Salad. Looked at the shops, all selling expensive things that I don’t want.
Next a quick trip round to Milk Hill, Rybury, them back past Avebury and on to Swindon. On the way home stopped at a Landrover garage and looked at the Freelanders.
We went out!!! Rosemary was back in time from work, so went into the local town and had a quick bite to eat at the Noodle Bar. Really quite good for a quick filling meal of noodles. It has been there a few weeks and I heard about it from a man I met in the P&A.
Next we went to watch the complete word of God put on by the Reduced Shakespeare Company. This was very funny, with the three actors acting out the complete old and new testament in 90 minutes. My daughter and I had previously seen the complete works of Shakespeare by the same actors.
