Dinner was delicious, we had an entree of scallops, I had the duck (very rich) and Thomas had the backstrap lamb, dessert was sorbet and a creme brulee with chocolate. Expensive, but if we could afford it we'd definitely go back. The waitress was lovely and commented on my knitting and asked what I was making. At the end she asked if I'd finished and I had to say no, socks take a long time to knit! I think I got about 4 rows done, but as I said it's what I do to fill waiting times without getting twitchy, lol.
Today didn't start so well, George wasn't well this morning gastro bug, he's feeling much better now. He'll be staying home tomorrow though as one of the activities tomorrow is swimming and even if he's feeling ok he's not allowed in the pool for another 2 weeks after one of those episodes; that and I suspect he got it from there in the first place. Ian'll still be going though as he's fine.
I got some quilting done today, all the spokes on the quilt are now pieced and I set up on the floor to pin it all together
