I met Ian at his place and we walked (yes, I know, a rare experience for me! - but it was very pleasant) into town, just as it started to rain. Ian had booked the restaurant - Strada’s - that’s now on the site of where the Pizza Hut used to be. The food and service was superb - for me, it was probably the best Italian meal I’ve had in a long while.
Time whizzed by as it always does and so we said our goodbyes, and Ian and I strolled back to my car, dodging the rain. It was light traffic going home and so I was indoors just before 10.
It was great catching-up, and it’s my turn to book somewhere this end for next time.
