Monday 24th August 2015 - It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it...

A beastly raining raining and raining day.

He went and did the shopping and got soaked, I stayed in and tidied the table like mad

OK, so this is an old picture from last year, but it's the same
sort of thing that was facing me this morning
thinking that a music theory pupil was due this morning (wrong, she's due on Friday.) I'm at that stage of the school holiday when
some things are ready for next term
  • some things are nearly ready but can't be finished properly until after term starts
  • some things still need to be done but I don't want to do them (repairing a dozen samba mallets is high on this list)
  • some ideas are still floating about and so all the books and papers are scattered everywhere as I look things up and change my mind
Anyway, while I was flitting through a mixture of tidying, moving papers from place to place, and writing down things that I was nearly forgetting, he came back from the shopping and the morning finished.

Now, in view of the imminent arrival of some friends from far away, some research was required. We eyed up the corned beef slices in the fridge that we were supposed to be having for lunch, shut the door firmly and went out. The research is required to find a suitable establishment which will serve the food that we deem suitable, in surroundings that we deem appropriate, for a forthcoming celebration. Accordingly we set off for

Chequers Inn, Rowhook

Which would probably have looked like this if the sun was shining. Having checked out the menu in the only way we know how, we gave it a "thumbs up" and made the reservation for one of the requested dates.

We will research further possibilities, in order to find somewhere equally good for the other requested date. Yum yum!
