This weekend has been full of pleasant suprises, not the big suprises like ‘I’ve won the lottery!’ or ‘we’re getting married!’ Small like ‘found a pound in these jeans’ suprises.
Yesterday I was meant to be working on a side project for our next games night with friends (more on that once the event has passed) but what started out as a bit of advice turned into cutting and shaping 95 45mm wooden squares.
The squares will eventually form part of my next main project, inventively called Project #3, I will share details of Projects #1 and #2 soon to try and keep some linear order to the story!
Yesterday invovled eight hours of cutting and shaping with an interlude of take away pizza that felt only like two hours. It amazing how time flies when you stop all thoughts and worries and concentrate on one task at a time.
Fortunately during the time of wood working I managed to walk away without any minor or major injuries!
Today, Mrs J and I met up with friends to celebrate a birthday, we all met at a pub that we have driven past without thought ever since I can remember. It’s in my opinion one of these places you drive past regular, notice its there but do not have a strong feeling of either ‘we must try there’ or ‘we are NOT going in there!’
We all go in, order our drinks and make our way over to the table. The menu is brought out and we all make the traditional Sunday choices, three lamb and three beef.
Very quickly the food is brought out and was absolutely delicious. There was plenty of veg and potatoes and the roast potatoes were delicious.
The conversation flowed as it normally does when we get together, the dinner was eaten, pudding ordered and huge desserts served.
When we asked for the bill it came back what you would probably expect to pay for a meal for two.
If you like a hearty roast I would recommend The Racing Greyhound in Ramsgate.
Right off to work on Project #3! Enjoy your Sunday.
