Meal with Ian and Mags

I met Ian and Mags at Babe Blooz, Market Harborough tonight as part of our normal three-monthly catch-up. Because Ann is still between jobs (but that'll change on the 10 August), she came along too! – Nice!

We hadn't been there for around 6 years and we were wondering what it would be like as it's been a while and it's now under new management. Ian arrived just after us, and Mags got there around 10 minutes later.

The place was almost empty when we got inside and things didn't get much busier. We decided to opt for the set meal for four – and it didn't disappoint – it was superb - and the service was excellent too.

We spent chatting about this-and-that..work…family…and Ann's new job. Ian is changing his too – returning to HR at the University. Time flew by as it always does, and 90 quid later, it was time to head for home.

When we left around 9.15, the place was almost deserted, but another two couples arrived just as we left bringing the total up to a massive 6!

We had a straightforward drive home (Ann drove as I'd had two pints of Cobra!) and we were in by 9.45.

It's been great to catch-up and we're going to do the same in September – somewhere in Stratford-upon-Avon.
