Dad’s 80th

To celebrate, we took him to one of the best restaurants in Shrewsbury, The Walrus. Which gets, ‘best in city’ accolade from restaurant guru.

I’d tend to agree with that.

We had a ‘taster menu’, which is smaller selections of the items from the A la Carte menu. You don’t get one full main course, but lots of little main courses, lots of little starters and lots of little puddings.

Was fine dining to be sure.

Jenny’s Wedding

My step-sister Jenny had her wedding and got married for a second time to her fiancé, John.

Located at the historical backdrop of Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, it was something out of the ordinary.

Everyone had a good time. Waiters didn’t serve enough water, and the toilets didn’t have toilet roll, but we can overlook that because it’s a castle eh?

Still the full breakfast was good.

Here’s some pictures.

Queens Jubilee

After the wedding, which they’d planned to have on the holiday Thursday created for the queens jubilee celebrations, (and saved a load of money on the venue), I had the rest of the weekend to spare, so took a visit to old Uni Friend Rob.

We spent the weekend eating and drinking around the establishments of Drayton.

  1. Love the photos. Glad you sorted out the overstay business, well done. It must be so lovely being on the water in this weather and the Oxford is so rural. See you very soon. xx
