I met up with Sally at our normal haunt Brown’s in Cambridge - just before 12.30. The atrocious weather and frightening on-street car parking prices (50p for 15 minutes!!!) was more than made up for by the excellent service and quality of the food at brown’s – that’s my starter on the left – a sort of ‘slither-of-duck-with noodles-and–peppers’. Sally stuck to her diet, and enjoyed her salad, whilst I tucked into the braised gammon and new potatoes.
After gossiping for ages and avoiding dessert for the sake of waistlines, (settling just for a tea and a coffee), it was two o’clock and time to say our good-byes. We’re meeting-up again in January and hopefully, we can get Katrina to come along too!
When we left, it was raining so hard, people were huddling under trees for shelter – I think I may have stood-out in my t-shirt! Luckily, I’d managed to get the car parked right outside the restaurant!
