Z feels cheerful

The day has gone very well.  A meeting – sorry, I do bang on about them rather – was constructive this morning, then I went to buy the chicken feed and a bale of hay before Ro and Dora arrived to take me out to lunch.  We went, at my suggestion, to a very good local pub and Ro nudged me when a couple arrived at a table across the way.  It was his former History teacher, also a former staff governor and, when they got up to leave, he looked across at us with a hint of uncertainty – it’s more than a decade since we last saw each other.  So I greeted him and we had a fairly long chat.  He’s a lovely man and was a superb teacher – Ro did a History degree on the strength of his teaching, not that he’s used it since (not that this means it was anything but valuable and worthwhile).

Roses came through for a drink in the evening, which turned into dinner, with the two of us pooling our food …. which sounds a bit odd.  She provided lamb steaks and leeks, I had corn on the cob, red peppers and runner beans, and an Aga to cook them on.  We have drunk wine in a quantity that may well give her a hangover in the morning.  I did suggest stopping and going on to soft drinks, but she was game to keep going.

Lovely friend Graham phoned from New Zealand this evening, which completed the day well.

      We shared a bottle, that was all – that is, all as far as you were concerned. I’d shared a bottle at lunchtime, too. I think I’d better give my liver a few days off.
