    ... Stopped for a beer or two at the Spread Eagle, Mary have a brandy and ginger ale ( they don't say brandy and dry over here) for her sore throat. She has a voice like Marianne Faithful. The Spread Eagle is not like your typical English pub, it has high ceilings and modern furniture. I liked it. Being a Geelong supporter, happy to see Hawthorn lost, sorry to my good friends who are Hawthorn supporters, but I can't get over 2008! Tomorrow it's the museum and more country homes. ...

    ... I need to make my tomato diet restrictions card for the Hall, because tonight all they had was spaghetti and meatballs or rice with chili con carne. What is it with Pembroke and tomato sauce? I took the chili and rice, and it bothered me a bit but not too bad.

It was a pity only sparkling and flat water was offered on the table as the red in our glasses stood out a little. More visits to the bottle shop ensured our cups of tea throughout the ...

    ... we'll have a bright blue sky above us and an unnatural late September warmth. As I have recounted many times across the world, there is no better place to be than England when the weather is good but unfortunately it's not often good. If this prolonged, unseasonable summery spell continues I'll have to reappraise the ending. It may be autumn, but I have spring in my stride and I'm feeling downright cocky. Life is good walking like this and Debby, ...

    ... seats left next to each other. But it worked out ok. I just turned around in my seat when we wanted to talk, and during the performance we were both just watching anyway. It was very cool to see Richard Armitage, and he did a good job as John Proctor. Some of the other performances seemed a bit over-acted for my taste, but overall it was enjoyable. And either way, it was nice to have an evening off to just relax. The play was really long though - 3.5 ...
