We were planning to go to Ely, a nearby cathedral town, today but we kinda looked at each other this morning and decided that we should make it a take-it-easy day instead. None of us had slept really well, so we thought staying put would do more to get rid of our colds than catching a bus, a train and doing a lot of walking. Watching the St. Neots world go by on the River Ouse and reading pretty much occupied the morning.
Bonnie and I went out early afternoon to pick up some groceries for dinner tonight – Jackie and the boys were coming over to dine with us – but we got sidetracked along the way and stopped at the Bohemia Brasserie’s outdoor tables for a bite to eat.
When we got home, we got busy make pork chops in a mushroom sauce for dinner. Our company showed up right on time at 5:00. It was such a beautiful day that we opened the sliding glass doors to the conservatory and sat out on the patio.
Oliver and I had a good time attracting a whole gaggle of geese, ducks and swans with some bread (I know that we shouldn’t do it, but we’ve seen our neighbours doing the same thing).
The kids were great and we had a good time with them through dinner. They left about 7:00.
The rest of the evening was spent on the computers/tablets and watching a couple of movies. One recommendation: don’t watch ‘The Ridiculous Six’, with Adam Sandler.
