Meal with Paul and Sue

francos We met up with Paul and Sue in Rothwell for our normal quarterly get-together. We had decided to try out Franco's, a new Italian Restaurant in the Rothwell House Hotel.

The food was good, but the restaurant was almost empty - which was a shame! The waitress worked hard but there were some fundamentals that didn't help the restaurant's potential success. Firstly there was no sign as to where the restaurant was in the hotel. Secondly, the hotel and the restaurant menu were littered with spelling mistakes and lastly, they got Paul and my order wrong!!!

On a more positive note, it was good to catch up with Paul and Sue and all their news. However, sadly, Paul had recently lost his Dad and was still wading through the paperwork and going through the grieving process. Sue had been on a cruise with a girlfriend and had had a wonderful time. Ben seems to be doing well with Am-Dram. We spent most of the evening reflecting on what it's like to get old!!!

We're going to catch-up sometime in March next year. We got home around 10.30
