A very enjoyable day in York, today. We had a good look around the shops, then lunch at Pizza Express. No bargains for me, unfortunately, but we got 3 pair of trousers for R***, in last bit of the sale at M&S. Lunch was followed, by a walk around the city walls. It was quite exhausting in the heat. You are very exposed to the elements, on the walls, and the sun was very hot. Another stroll round the shopping area, then back home, with just a little stop at the Hare & Hounds pub, in Stutton. Now this used to be a great place to eat. However, the brewery, Samuel Smiths, seem to have imposed a set menu on all their pubs. As a consequence, the Hare & Hounds food is not as good as it used to be.
Eldest was working today. We have not really heard how it all went. He texted around lunchtime, but we’ve not heard anything since. He is either out spending his earnings, or else he is having an early night. I know which my money is on ! He does not seem to be online at the moment, and he has not answered the texts I have sent. I may be wrong ! He could be in bed. If the work has been a hard slog, then he could be tired. We may hear tomorrow.

I love York, there is always something new to see there !
Surprised at the sam smiths pub menu, There’s a sam smiths pub in my parents village in which i drink when home, good pint and cheap ! are they still doing their organic lager, it used to be like rocket fuel !
I think it is bar meals that are affected. They have a set menu, that seems to be the same wherever you go. However, the landlord can have specials, but I think that Hare & Hounds, try to attract resturant customers more than bar meals, so they only offer the set menu.
