Stamford - Here we come

We picked up David and Val and headed for Stamford. We’re spending today and Sunday morning with Nick and Celina. Weather looks horrible, but I’m sure we’ll make the best of it.

Luckily for us, the weather brightened up and after a few circuits of the car-park, we all met-up and headed for The Crown for a quick lunch.

A perfect lunch!








Suitably stuffed, we then headed off into the town for a mooch round the shops and then it was back to N and C’s for a catch-up with newspapers and a gossip.

We ate in – courtesy of Celina’s rather superb slow roasted lamb casserole and Nick’s home-made rice pudding with apple and butterscotch sauce. We then relaxed in comfy chairs and chilled-out – with me extending the definition, and falling asleep in the chair!!!! I woke up just in time to say good-night and go to bed!!!

Sunday began with a thick frost complemented by a full-English breakfast! Then it was time to head home, as Celina was off for a substantial run a little later.

We arrived home around midday and headed straight into the garden and operation ‘winter tidy-up’. A couple of hours later, it was all done – and we spent the rest of the afternoon recovering! :)

Back to reality tomorrow!!!
