These aren't exactly Sunday scenes but you might find some of them ... er ... interesting!
With stepdaughter Ros and partner, Frank, being home from the UK we tended to go out rather a lot. We're fanatics for avoiding cooking by eating out. The next three pictures were taken in the toilets at the Plough and Harrow. The Ladies. Apparently, and I only have the men's word for this, the wall in the Gents were full of pictures of women. More than this I can't say but the mind boggles when I try to imagine what sort of pictures they were... and in such a respectable restaurant as well! I made a point of visiting the Ladies to see what was going on in there. Do enlarge for a better view!
Moving swiftly on....
This was a Christmas tree made from an old magazine. I got the idea from Banker Chick and couldn't wait to have a go at making one. Did I say 'one'? I'm afraid I got carried away and made several. I could have sprayed them with glitter but didn't have time. Maybe next year....
Now this was novel. An ordinary cup of coffee, you might think ... but no. It was soup served in a novel way. We had Christmas lunch at Moor Hall (click to see pics of their dining rooms) and this novel touch was the soup course. Everyone was astonished 'cause we're all so used to traditional soup bowls and spoons. It's so unusual to say we had 'cuppa soup' for Christmas lunch.
A welcoming fire at another eating place, the Horse and Jockey.
and this is the menu at Moor Hall's New Year's Day Brunch. I have to confess I had most of the hot selection, including the pancakes.
