We weren’t sure how to set the oven to turn itself off, so Margaret and Daniel were on cake-watch to ensure the cake didn’t burn, although when I later found out I’d miscalculated the degrees when exchanging Celsius for Fahrenheit it’s amazing it wasn’t as dry as a leather slipper. It had a chewy exterior, but overall the taste was good enough when masked with a little butter, but then again what isn’t better with that addition, apart from arteries?
We met Peter at Boston Pizza after Daniel and Margaret looked up the address and found out it wasn’t in the shopping centre we thought, but somewhere three tourists would easily get lost finding if ignorantly searching
Following our meeting we followed suit and got lost in Square One as we tried to navigate our way around the many shops, but we eventually managed to find our way back to the main entrance, stopping off for a quick scoop of Rolo ice-cream to keep us going through the short wait for Daniel to kindly collect us; the server commented on how much she liked my accent, and whilst I deferred the compliment with the fact that my cousin Margaret likes to mock the way I pronounce 'bucket’ and ‘Douglas’ it was nice to hear that she thought it was ‘elegant,’ but I swiftly moved on to enjoy my ice-cream to escape any unnecessary compliment.
The five of us manipulated our way into the Audi to drive over to a nearby area called Oakville, where we had dinner at a lovely restaurant opposite the local library and arts centre; we sat outside directly in the line of the setting sun, so sunglasses were prevalent until nine when it finally dimmed to a manageable brightness. I had wild boar gnocchi, which was delicious, and I like to think made tastier by thought of the wild boar Tatum Channing killed in the film ‘The Eagle’ last night.
A cosy arrangement of Margaret, Mum, and me in the back of the Quattro led for a warm ride home before we all collapsed with smuggled Dairy Milk chocolate and watched the Royals’ visit to Canada.
