Visit Denis and Mae for Lunch/Lottery Win

We're off to Lincoln today to catch-up with Denis and Mae. The day started cold but then the snow came, albeit not much, but the forecast looks worse. As I write this it's still -1 degrees outside but we  now have freezing rain as well - lovely (not!)

The weather started to clear up and we had a good journey up there - one hour twenty minutes.

It was good to see Denis and Mae. We haven't been to theirs for quite a while.

Full roast for lunch - a nice piece of Lamb followed by Apple Crumble and Mae's unrivalled home-made Christmas Pudding. It was excellent food and well-worth the wait (we didn't eat until 2.15 and by that time we were both starving!!!)

Bev was there and introduced us to her work colleague - Di(ana).

We left about 3.45 and got home at 5.15. A good run back too. It gave me chance to push the Mondeo a bit - it was great round the twisty bends - and it still returned 39mpg.

imageAfter five years, we finally won something on the lottery! Three numbers, that's 10 quid - result!!

..and we nearly didn't bother to check the numbers!!!
