... for £2 :) Doug had lamb and I had a steak! After our lovely meal we headed to the cinema paradiso to watch the hobbit part 3!

Dais came home and we had planned to take a picnic to the lake for dinner. We have food in our fridge that we'd been saving for a special occasion including some cheeses my mum brought us while she was here all that time ago! So we did cheese, crackers, bread, pâté ...
