Four hours later, after a scrumptious meal and plenty of booze, we finally waved them goodbye. I reckon the landlady was probably glad to see the back of us. The men were getting a tad noisy, well after 3 pints each it was never a wonder!
Thought we had got back in time for the Rugby but Wales and South Africa had already kicked off. Luckily the telly was tuned in on the omni rather then the large aerial. It would have meant getting it out of the top box, putting it together and then finding which direction to point it in. That would have eaten in Ian's Rugby time, not something he had wanted to do. (especially after the 3 pints) As for me, I'm watching Strictly tonight but am relegated to the bedroom and our tiny 12" TV. Dont mind at all as Ian has promised to keep me supplied with wine and the bed is a comfy viewing seat. And best of all, if I get cold I can snuggle under the duvet.
Seen on route, colours of the cut in Autumn as well as the wildlife.
