Old Papers and Eating Out

Posted on 2005/06/10 09:37:36 (June 2005).

[Thursday 9th June]
Stayed in during the daytime, and spent some of the day with Vera sorting through some of her old boxes of miscellaneous stuff. Without realising it, she's kept a set of copies of The Daily Telegraph, going back as far as the 1930s, from important events in history - King Edward's abdication, President Kennedy's assasination, the day Winston Churchill died and so on. Very interesting.
In the evening we went out with Robin for a meal at a place on the road between Abergavenny and Crickhowell - the Riverside Restaurant or something. The food was very nice - and it was such a joy to go to a restaurant where vegetarians were well catered for, after all the struggling with eating out in Japan! I started with a spinach mousse, had a leek and mushroom lasage for my main course, and then a chocolate terrine to follow. All very reasonably priced too. I'm very pleased my first experience of eating out since returning to the UK has not been a disappointment!
