Date Night

With Chris been away on our actual wedding anniversary we decided to go out for a meal last night a bit like a Date Night.
Finally we found somewhere.  Pic from Google
There is a new(ish) Italian restaurant opened just up the road from our house and so despite Chris not liking Pasta, Pizza or cheese, we thought we`d try it. However it was fully booked.

So we walked the whole length of the High street stopping at all the pubs and eating houses and saying “You won`t like that” or “I don`t like that” till we reached the last pub and went in anyway. Part of a `chain` it was another `cooking by numbers` type place but the food wasn`t too bad. It was half full with a mix of `lonely old men` and a few dubious rough looking types. Not a place to relax and enjoy yourself! We ate and left, a nice walk home but not what I`d planned.

'Trip Advisor review


Somehow I doubt if this is true,but worth sharing anyway.
Not my pic.

'Trip Advisor review: Deserted Cabin, Tennessee – 1 night's stay 31/10/1981
(ashboomstick81)

Having booked in for an overnight stay we were appalled by the lack of facilities waiting for us – no TV or radio or other basic entertainments, and only one book which turned out to be this gross orange thing written in some foreign language or something. Plus some crazy dude had already read the book and left a tape there for us of him reading it! Also, terrible neighbourhood as immediately after we played the tape the cabin was attacked by strange people dressed as demons! We fled through the forest only to be set upon by a bunch of rednecks hiding in the forest who tried to make out that the 'trees' were attacking us. All in all the worst place we've ever stayed in. Great views though. (1 out of 5).'

Why You Should Have A Plan.

You go to the trouble of having decking built around a tree.

Then get the tree cut down!

Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour Visit 14-02-17

“Never write anything on line when, drunk, tired or angry” (That`s why I waited 6 weeks to write this)
At the Harry Potter Studio.
This had been on my to-do list for ages, so whilst we were `down south` babysitting our grandchildren for half term, on a `free day` we went.
All I can say is that I was Disappointed

At the Harry Potter Studio.
It did what it said on the tin. A tour of a film studio, sharing behind the scenes, props and setting of the Harry Potter films in a cold, clinical way with no love, passion or feeling. If you, like me were hoping for magic, forget it. Instead go to your local Goth Club on an average night.

Here are some pictures I took.
