Two years ago when I was still in America, I wrote a post entitled The 10 Best Things About the UK and one of the things I said I was most looking forward to was Sunday lunch in the pub with friends.
That’s exactly what we did today. Ruth and I have been friends since we were both 19 and our love of food has not changed since that time.
The pub we chose is unusual in offering a vegetarian option for the Sunday roast – a delicious leek and mushroom roly poly. The dead animals others were eating can’t possible taste as good as this!
Here’s Ruth and Mark
And here are a couple of shots of the pub. It’s a beautiful old building with a warren of rooms, low ceilings, solid wood beams and open fires. Sorry the pictures are blurry – not sure what happened.
Amazing to look back on the original post I wrote and to think that it was over 18 months ago. Back then we had no idea how this move would work out, but now here we are, just a few weeks away from moving into a new house, and back into the swing of life here as if we’d never left. If you’re thinking about a move back and occasionally have the wobblies, just picture that first Sunday pub lunch with friends. Believe me, it makes all the stress and hassle worthwhile.
