TRIP TO THAMES SCALLOPS FOR LUNCH

We have had a great day. We left home before 9 am. 1 hour 20 minutes to the retirement home where I visited my friend Enid. we spent over an hour chatting with my special friend who will have her 90th birthday next week.

In Thames we went to a different place for lunch. We had vouchers for the Junction Hotel, an historic hotel dating from Gold Rush days. They had a modern bar and diner. We were surprised to have such a good meal. John and I both had scallops wrapped in bacon with salad and caper flavoured crisps. The scallops were huge and juicy, 4 to a kebab stick, the garden salad was delicious and finished off with crunchy potato crisps which could only have been made in their own kitchen. The coffee was good too.

John saw the skin specialist, 40 minutes waiting then in and out. He couldn't have been more than 5 minutes and was told it was nothing to be concerned with but to check in with his GP, (General Practitioner or family doctor), in 6 months. The sore spot on his lip has completely healed after months. Wouldn't you know it! Still better to be safe than sorry especially as he was a fairly heavy smoker from 18-50 years old. Lip cancers can have a shocking outcome.

We did a little shopping spending a small fortune on essential supplements and groceries. I'd like to think that's all we'll spend for the next two weeks. I was able to get 1 litre of high quality coconut oil, expensive but a better buy than my usual shop. 

A beautiful drive back home, walking in the door in time to turn on the 6 o'clock TV news. I was so tired, maybe slightly car sick from our windy roads, that I couldn't eat anything. I've just had coffee and cream and I might have some plain yoghurt later.

Tomorrow is my 'almost' fast day.
