As I am battling a difficult head wind on the bike to work, L is heading off to Manchester for a shopping trip with Daughter. The weather could well be worse there, grim as f*** as they say up north.
We tackle the wind on foot at lunchtime as its pub day. Wednesday is the new Thursday. The pub is a lot quieter on Wednesday so we get food quicker and it even gets served with a smile. The barmaid is also a lot better on the eye than the chap on Thursdays. Sadly their 6 for 5 meal offer is over for now but should be back in January. Yay.
Dogging this evening and with L still on her way back from Manchester, I need to remember not to automatically head for the pub afterwards.
