Last week I came down to Yorkshire to take care of my friend Colin, after his heart bypass. I can tell you he is doing really well. No-one would ever know, just to see him now!
Anyway, since I’ve been here we have had a couple of trips out, but most days we take it easy, me working on the computer, or reading, and Colin doing his Sudoku puzzles or reading too, or we might take a little walk. Of course we go along to Paddock Farm Garden Centre just along the road for lunch some days, and what terrific value for money that is! This was lunch the other day! Steak Pie with mashed potatoes and veg. Home made pie, masses of potatoes and three different veg, not to mention the extra jug of gravy that I might need! All for £6.25! I tell you this tearoom must be the best value for money tearoom in the country! Another day I asked for a bacon roll. “With chips and veg?” “No, just on its own is fine” “It’s included in the price!” I’m sure I paid just £2.60, and there must have been about 4 rashers of back bacon in the roll.
I read on the internet that after a heart bypass patients might feel tired, lose their appetite….. Not Colin! Well he was tired the first couple of days home , but his appetite is very healthy! He could eat all that pie and veg and demolish my carrots too, because I don’t like cooked carrots!
It’s a pleasure to visit this place.
Talk again soon.
