On Wednesday we had a lunch date with Nick and Liz (NB Henry) currently moored at Llangollen. They'd chosen 'Sun Trevor' as they offer a free main meal within a few days of your birthday with a form printed off from the internet, so we had two free main meals. Eric had beef and ale pie which looked delicious and I had a surf and turf....very nice too. Of course we had to sample the dessert menu....delicious lemon meringue pie and icecream. We left the pub rather full after a very nice afternoon,
On Thursday Ben and I had a walk on the Mosses which surprisingly wasn't too wet along the trails. Ben loves being off his lead but from March 1st it's not allowed. I'd left Eric having a birthday lie-in. By the time we got back he was up and the boat had been vacuumed which was good as it saved me a job. We had a birthday cake of course and some cards in the post as well as phone calls from family.
Today we've been to Market Drayton for a change of scenery and we sampled the excellent fish and chips in Morrisson's Cafe. Before we went I got jumped on by Ben the dog for a cwtch (welsh for cuddle) who realised he was going to be left as we were going out. He'd had a walk so I knew he'd be fine, and hoped he wouldn't bark. As we left we couldn't hear him!
When we got back Ben and I had a little walk then he had an afternoon nap! I expect Eric will have one too.
