|This is pretty much as good as it gets, I'm pretty pleased actually the dishes are done after dinner as well as before!|
(Oops... you can see my bottle of gin on the window ledge- I truly don't drink that much!)
|If you look closely here you can see the broccoli that Chicky Babe forgot to add to the soup. I didn't notice this until I cropped the photo for this post.|

Finally we came across this little place. They advertised freshly baked pastries etc along with all day breakfasts, so I assumed they should be able to fry an egg - that they couldn't poach one should have alerted me to possible disappointment. I asked if they could fry my eggs separately from Tim's sausages and bacon as I was allergic to it, and could I please have soft yolks.
My eggs came dripping in sausage grease without any utensils and as hard and rubbery as you could get. The waitress said they were not touching as they cooked...then when I said that the preservative in the fat that spread around the pan was enough to make me sick, she said that perhaps they had been cooked separately...they were not in the same pan... perhaps they might have been in the same pan but they definitely weren't touching. Yes she had cooked them herself and after further questioning and reiteration that it would make me ill to eat contaminated eggs she offered to cook some more and as I was by this time feeling VERY hungry I accepted. The tea looked very funky with it's unusual tea infuser. But it was tepid by the time I got it. The second lot of eggs were edible -as my Grandmother used to say 'hunger is a great sauce'.Although we were not very lucky with regard to breakfast we were rewarded with a full rainbow that followed us almost all the way home.Hopefully it bodes well for the lotto ticket I purchased.

Today I had lunch with the girls at Hubble's Yard Cafe. Our table was in the back room and the sunshine was streaming into the room through the lovely old lead light window.

But I fear at the moment it looks more like those seen on TV news shows of neglected houses!
