What are you all drinking?
"We'll" read "you'll"
Hmm I didn't think there'd be much morning service in here. I suspect I'll have to speak to the Manager about getting something started. Have a good day at that thing wot pays for holidays
<licks penci, flips open notepadl and awaits breakfast orders>
I self-served. There's still some tea if you want
Is it still hot? I think I'll make some fresh
You know how I like mine .... weak but hot .... just like my men
Ooh err, missus!
No point hanging washing out today <sigh>.
is it too early for gin and a sleep?
Not in this pub!
<plumps up cushions on pub sofa and places gin on coffee table>
Thank you ST - you might want to stick some tissues there too to mop up the tears...or just wear a poncho, can't stop crying at the moment.
I can offer a barmaidenly shoulder to cry on, if it helps? Sorry you are down in the dumps - can we help?
The shoulder is always a good offer. Thanks ST - this has been a long time coming, ended my 4.5 year relationship last night. She's my best mate and we knew it was coming but it's never easy. Feeling very lost now...
Oh, that's sad.....will it be too difficult to stay friends, or is it a clean break in all respects? You've invested a lot of time in the relationship, so do give yourself time to grieve.
<passes tissues and gives big squeezy hug>
no...we are staying friends. we were friends before the relationship and we have too much together to not be friends, might take a while though. We co own a cat and he is awesome, we have so many friends together too. Just want it to go back to when it was good and we were happy as a couple. But I need my friend more. And there we go...floodgates again
You just let it all out - it's allowed, you know! I'm glad you're staying friends. They are much harder to come by than boyfriends/girlfriends, I have always thought, so when you find a good one, you hang on to them.
I should eat something...and have a shower. Too bloody tired and sad to think about eating. What I'd like to do is sleep...sleep for a very long time until things stop hurting. But seeing as that isn't an option, I'll make the bed. And try to remember the soup recipe for tonight.
howdy all good to see the pub back in action
I made a lovely soup yesterday (no modesty, me!) - butterbean, bacon and leek. It was vair yummy. Today's soup is lentil and carrot, with a hint of cumin and chilli.
tonights is known as veggie chicken soup...as in it makes you feel better. The irony is that my ex (ugh...hate saying that) made it for me when I was ill...and it's all I ever want if I'm feeling low and sad and miserable. I need to get bread though. Although I might just make some instead.
<wipes blackboard clean and writes this evening's menu>
Spicy lentil and carrot soupSlow-roasted garlic and lemon chicken with potatoes and parsnips
Maybe some chilled SB to go with that?
