It was that time of the month again, yes the ladies that lunch met again. We returned to The Blacksmiths Arms again as we all really enjoyed the food and atmosphere last time we were there. We were all on time with no mishaps but that didn’t last long as when carol was opening her presents the wrapping paper caught fire, I am chuckling to myself as I write this but it was really funny and then she pushed the fire over to Corinne. I really did try to get my camera out quick but failed. Carol was pleased with her presents so all good.
We decided on mains and a dessert, the desserts are so scrumptious here. The mains ranged from scampi, ham egg and chips, sausages and salmon and prawns with no complaints at all. The service is lovely with nothing too much trouble and piped music at just the correct volume for chatting.
Two ladies were missing today due to prior engagements but next month we have our christmas lunch so we will be the full group of nine. I have told them not to be ill! lol
Next was the decision of dessert, it took a while as there was so much choice, they also had a specials board. In the end we had the top four from the menu plus profiterols.
I think these desserts are in my top ten well the banoffee pie is that I had. Lots to talk about and catch up on, it was lovely to hear all the news.
Liz surprised us all with a present that I thought was so lovely and have put it in my garden already. The most beautiful poppy that will last forever. Thank you so much Liz.
