the 5th of November...
Back into work and school today after our half term break. We all got up early and were surprisingly wide awake and quite cheery - I think the clocks going back last weekend helped as it was quite light at 7am.
It has been a great autumny day. A frosty start (the car needed scraping - urgh) but then the most glorious sunshine for the rest of the day. The colours of the trees are really impressive when they are lit up by the sun.
MrG and I went out for lunch. MrG worked all weekend so we really felt we needed a treat - it certainly beat the usual homemade sandwiches! We went to The Plough at Lupton and had a really tasty lunch - a tapas of bruschetta with tomato and red onion, steak ciabatta, chargrilled chicken with pineapple dipping sauce, courgette fritters and hand-cut chips. Delicious. It was our first time at The Plough and I'm already looking forward to a return visit!
