Well, we are back from The Three Crowns
K* drove us there and back. What a wonderful thing it is having a teenager who can drive.
M& had the duck again. We have been there a dozen or more times since we moved down here, and she has had the duck EVERY TIME. This time I had the duck too, for the first time, and I have to admit it is rather wonderful.
For dessert she had something involving apples and, apparently, hay, and I had something involving ice cream, cream, meringue, and ... well they used to call it Irish Mist and made it with Jamesons. Now they are calling it Scotch Mist and the spirit is unnamed but it tastes better than a cheap blend and there seems to be rather a lot of it in there.
Many thanks to everyone for the good wishes.
