[Saturday 13th November]
Barry had stayed over Friday night following the pub crawl, so in the morning, before Barry headed off home we went out for breakfast. Had a full English at the little cafe/eatery place in the village. Chie had stayed with a friend the previous evening (at least partly to avoid being around me when drunk/hungover!), and came back in the afternoon. For various reasons I'd started to feel a bit fed up around midday, so when Chie phoned to say she was on her way back, she suggested I go for a walk and I could meet her somewhere. I was very keen on this idea, so I set out on a good, solid walk, about an hour and a half, down to Theale, where Chie met me in the car. I drove us back home from there, and we did a quick spot of shopping in the village, then stayed in the rest of the day. I made a kind of stew thing, with these "soya chunks" I'd had lurking around in my cupboard for ages, cooked in a red wine sauce with shallots, mushrooms etc. It actually came out rather well, even though I do say so myself.
