... back to the cottage to relax a while. Later we drove in to town again and enjoyed a great Valentine/Birthday meal at the Pomodoro Italian restaurant. The place was buzzing, with numerous waiters scurrying hither and thither. I had a 500 gramme T-bone steak. I've just finished reading a book about how bad steak is not just for oneself but for the health of the planet in general, so feeling thoroughly ashamed of myself. But it is my ...
