an evening stroll

I was out of the house yesterday morning at 6.15, and did a 2.5 mile round trip walking to the baths, and 20 lengths of the pool. Then, at lunch time, we went and delivered the purple bike to its new home, stopping at B&Q to buy a new terracotta pot for Jane’s triffid, and imdulging ourselves in a truly naughty bacon, egg and mushroom bap from the van in the car park.

So why I felt a bit restless after supper, I have no idea, but I did, so I suggested to Pete that we went for a walk. It was a beautiful evening, and we did about 4 miles, along the old railway line to Anlaby Road, then back through West Park, stopping for a gin and tonic at Pave on Princes Ave; this bar is about 5 minutes from the house, and we’ve never been in it!

And while they did a very acceptable Bombay Sapphire with lime(!), at £6.30 for that and a pint, I’m not sure we’ll be doing it again either 🙂 But it was nice to sit outside, watching the world go by.

Home then for a nice cup of tea and a netbook catchup before bed. Made a really nice change.
