Brunch

 


I met my friend Cheryl for Brunch and a walk this morning. Both off our diets for one day 
We had the full breakfast at Bryn Williams with buckets of good conversation and strong coffee.

I’m having a quiet day tomorrow so it was a lovely way of bookending my holiday.


I’ve had a nice productive holiday.
Cheryl was impressed
I must have bored her with most of my list but she didn’t let on ..

A trip to London
A trip to Liverpool
1 art gallery visit
2 theatre visits
3 exhibition visits
1 stand up comedy night
1 evening with ( online)
2 evening meals out
2 cinema trips
I day sanding and decorating a bookcase
Afternoons at Aberfalls, Colwyn Bay, Chester and Llandudno
Brunch at Porth Eirias
An afternoon of very nice sex! Hey ho…
( that one pricked-up her ears)

I got home this afternoon to a jar of jam left anonymously which was nice 


I’m getting that strange feeling I used to get days before I went back to school at the end of summer holidays..but it’s ok…

  1. Anonymous gifts, how intriguing. I used to hate that "end of holidays, back to school/work" feeling. At least it soon passes, an hour back and you're looking forward to the next break! You've certainly made the most of this holiday and now have some lovely memories. xx

  2. What are those blackened things on the middle of your brunch plate? Are those mushrooms and spam?
    Glad you had such a nice break!

    I am seriously impressed with all of the interesting things you did, saw, and participated in, all packed into your holidays. Excellent planning, too.
    Yes, I also know that kind of deep dread of returning to school or work but it will be tolerable and helpful in filling the coffers to fund the next holiday, bathroom remodel, and other things to make life better.
    The magic kitchen wall giveth - homemade jam! What flavor is it?

    Hugs!

  5. Nice sex? I’m sure the amount but of effort he put in deserved better than nice - or I hope it did.

  7. John, glad you've had such a wonderful and much needed time away. Hmmmmm - & icing on the cake? Oh, by the way, your yesterday's item: I've always enjoyed Miriam via my "Brit Box" TV and had the opportunity to read several items from her book...looking forward to reading the entire book soon. Take care. Hugs.

    My first thought was that the pan or grill that cooked that breakfast needs a good cleaning!
    No wonder someone asked what are those "blackened things"

  17. Do you not recognise the handwriting on the jam jar label-perhaps it could be from Gentleman Farmer Ralphs wife-and I just wondered John whether you have a video to share of your fun week if you don't mind me being so bold x
