Yesterday Ken and Sue (Cleddau) came past heading for Snarestone Wharf, within 2 hours they had returned and moored in front of FS. We came out to greet them but the greeting was short-lived as boy did it rain! It had us all scampering inside diving for cover. So we never did get to have a decent natter because shortly after the rain had stopped, our friends Lynda and Tony arrived.
It was not a good meal! Tony and Ian's fish and chips were fine but Lynda and I ordered Beef Lasagna, the warning from the waitress was not to touch the plate because it was hot...well that was the only thing that was! We both objected to eating a lukewarm meal so sent the two lasagna back. 10 minutes wait later and the lasagnas were returned, this time mine was fine but Lynda, instead of being given a beef lasagna ended up with a vegetarian! Another complaint, the waitress came and asked if she could look have a good look at it. Well…after a bit of poking with a fork, she still maintained it was beef, the fact it was heavy with peppers and other veg and no beef was found at all, didn't change her mind one bit! The only saving grace was the offer of a free pud! This was another pub scrubbed off our list, shame really because it really is a very convenient spot for meeting folk!
So this morning we got up late, thought we may have missed Ken and Sue but no, they were still moored. As soon as Ken appeared I poked my head out of the cratch, Ian got off the back and walked up to say hello. Well that catchup was long and we even got a present given to us by Ken. He made quite a few of these key ring fobs and I got to pick which one I wanted, The green and red did it for me (boat colours) and this will be a lovely way to secure the tiller pin. So thank you again Ken.
So now we await the grandchildren. Blogging will have to wait until our duties are done, and after all, the waking moments will be occupying one very lively 9-year-old and keeping the 14-year-old from morphing into a typical non-verbal, unresponsive teenager!
