Another cooler night after a lot of rain yesterday. At times it poured! It did clear later on, which was nice, but we could do with some more; the ground is so very dry and even the soaking yesterday will not have penetrated very deeply.
Lunch was lovely. I departed from my usual habit of having a small plate menu and had a Caesar salad with chicken. It was lovely but way, way too much. I must have left about a third, which went very much against the grain as it was waste, but I couldn't manage any more. They are very obliging there so next time I fancy something off the small plate menu I must ask for a small plate version. Even if it means paying the same, at least there won't be the waste. And it was so very nice (and simple), I must make it at home. I just have to find how to make the dressing. Google, here I come!
Liz and I had a jolly good chat about all sorts of stuff. It's always nice to catch up with friends and Liz and I have worked as colleagues more or less since I first moved to the area. Our sons were both in the same class. I took over her role as SEN support teacher when she went full time. We ended up as co-year 1 teachers for a couple of years before she retired. It's great to stay in touch.
I don't think I have any plans for today. That's good, it frees me up to make some! Have a good one, everybody!
