Good morning. I started this last night but then abandoned it and took the dog out instead. Yesterday I went to visit the rellies. Me and my sis Anna, and her hubby Bryn. We had lunch at the Riverside Inn at Branston, Burton on Trent. I can recommend this place for a meal, my sis uses it regularly. The food was very good, with a varied menu at prices to suit everyone. The lunchtime menu has a great choice at £4.99 for a main meal, with a choice for veggies. Bryn had a turkey dinner, Anna had fish in cheese sauce, and I had baked butternut squash in a sage and tomato sauce. We didn't bother with a starter or pudding, the meal itself was enough to fill us up. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and it wasn't too busy. The tables are spaced well enough apart that you are not sitting close to strangers. Anna paid for our meals, so it was a nice treat.
My 93 year old uncle Stan is doing great, it was lovely to have a chat with him and auntie Pat. They had family to visit last weekend and some more are coming this weekend. They tell me that they have their groceries delivered by Sainsburys now, it has been such a help to them. Pat orders it online and the drivers are always helpful and friendly, bringing it into the kitchen and unpacking it onto the kitchen table. With their mobility problems this is one instance where home deliveries work well. Even with their disabled badge they have difficulty finding a parking place close to the shops.I very quickly dashed into Tesco last night when passing. I knew there wouldn't be much left in the yellow stickers, but worth a look. A few things in the basket, brassica veg pack, salad leaves, pasta salad, fresh milk, total £1.68. I might go tonight, need to restock the fridge.
Thanks for popping in. I have things to do. Catch up soon. Toodle pip.
GRRRRR. I hate this centre justified text. I usually highlight each paragraph, then click on justify left, and it moves across. Sometimes it doesn't work. I want my words to start on the left hand side of the page. Bluddy frustrating, I'm going out before I blow a gasket.
