The Fussy Eater was in tow.
Had the steak-and-Guinness pie and the chunky chips with gravy.
Had the sizzling mushrooms in a Thai-style sauce instead of the half-pint.
Skipped the whiskey bread pudding because the roads were bad (first snowfall of the year) and we didn't want to keep our friend waiting at the thee-a-tah.
Very happy now...life is better...
