Sunday in the Midlands

Posted on 2009/12/25 16:26:21 (December 2009).

[Sunday 20th December 2009]
Another day in the Midlands today.

Again in the afternoon Chie and I ventured out by ourselves. This time we decided to get the bus to Derby to have a wander round there. We had a nose around the market hall, the cathedral, and the undoubted highlight for me - Derby's oldest pub, Ye Olde Dolphin Inne. Cracking pub this - four separate little rooms, each with low hanging beams and a blazing fire. Food was pretty good too - Chie had a giant yorkshire pudding and I had a vegetarian shepherd's pie.

After the Dolphin we went for a look around the new Westfield shopping centre, which was bland and homogenous and just like every other shopping centre. Still, at least the Dolphin had been a success.

Back at Mum's house in the evening we had an early Christmas dinner, including a very festive nut roast, which was very nice.
