Tuesday

Nice morning coffee with friends in town.   Then it was home again and shortly afterwards friend S, who usually takes Tess for a walk on Wednesdays, called to say could she take her today instead as it was such a lovely day.   Off they went, T went too as his volunteer work today was not needed.   They walked Tess round the reservoir - off the lead - and she adored it.   Plenty of sniffs, wees and a couple of poos (too much info I suspect) later and they were back home for a cup of coffee.
In the meantime I had been out to lunch on our Tuesday fortnightly jaunt.   Today it was roast ham and pineapple with jacket potatoes followed by
ginger pudding and custard, a mince pie and coffee.

Since then I have packed a parcel, paid a bill, written this post, read posts on my side bar and now am ready to sit down and relax.   Until tomorrow.

I've noticed with your regular lunches that you never mention anything like a nice glass of wine or a G&T, just coffee, which fortunately I don't like, do you not drink the stronger stuff then.

Today it was swimming followed by Chinese buffet food for lunch. I had chicken, onions, broccoli, vermicelli, rice, and a beer. And now I'm going to have a beer followed by a chili con carne if I can catch the bartenders eye as I wait to meet my good lady who is detained elsewhere.

It sounds like a lovely day and I am happy to hear that Tess had a special walk to enjoy. We have had a snowy day here but it does make it look like Christmas.

That lunch sounds nice, and how good for Tess that she had such a great walk. Your mentioning of a parcel reminds me that I should get my parcel for the family in Yorkshire under way rather sooner than later.

Another delicious lunch and I'm glad you had a nice day weatherwise. It was a beautiful crisp morning down here but rather dreary again in the afternoon. It was happy feet day for me, as I had an appointment with the chiropodist.

Heather - happy feet day for me tomorrow. Lovely, isn't it?
Derek - the odd glass of wine but that's all. My tipple used to be Campari and soda but my medication suggests I keep off such stuff and I can't say I miss it. I am a coffee drinker
though, particularly Italian.

I'm so glad that I've never been a coffee drinker, it seems to be a legal addiction that has taken over the world. Wherever you go in public people seem to be holding cups of coffee, in Chichester there are apparently 14 coffee shops along the High Street. People seem unable to work unless they are fortified all day by constant cups of coffee. I'll stick to my glass of wine or bottle of beer each afternoon.

Glad to hear that Tess still gets her chance to go wild in the countryside. Lunch sounds good and I'm sure the rest of the day wouldn't have been so productive if you'd been drinking alcohol with your meal.

I am sure that even if one is a coffee drinker Derek there are many who can get from A to B without clutching a coffee cup although I agree with your point to a large extent. What always surprises me is first thing in the morning when I assume people have just had breakfast many are unable to make a train journey without a coffee as an accompaniment. I think it is just habit. Years ago people used to manage without. How did we ever survive!

Derek Faulkner said...

Of course you're right Rachel, it just seems to be off the scale these days and so that they can drink their coffee and have one hand free, they talk on the other ever present, the mobile phone, via microphone and ear plugs. Like you say, how did we survive without such things.

The Weaver of Grass said...

Derek and Rachel. I don't think my parents ever had a cup of 'real' coffee in their lives - if they had oneit would be Camp coffee made with milk on the odd occasion. In tea I take neither milk nor sugar and like it very weak = and the same with coffee. I try not to drink too much coffee - moderation is what I strive for (not always successfully). Also Rachel I do think many folk these days leave home without breakfast sadly - it's a habit that is growing.

Thanks everyone for the comments;

I love hearing of how you spend your days now, Pat, and your lovely lunches out. We love to have lunch or coffee out, and it needn't be costly, either, as we have found out.
Oh, Camp coffee! We always had a bottle of that at home when I was young, and remember my mother, this would be the early 1950s, attempting ot make coffee from ground coffee, not in a percolator but in a saucepan in milk. You never saw such a mess in all your life! But coffee was a foreign drink, tea was what they drank in Lancashire! Hot and strong!
