Special Days

26/10/2010

When I was younger and single, my idea of a good trip to the pub was to arrive with friends at a country pub with good real ale and drink steadily, or more accurately, less and less steadily, from 8PM or so until the pub closed.  Nowadays, that doesn’t really appeal, partly because most of my friends are scattered far and wide and we all have lives and families of our own, partly because my job precludes it most days, but also because hangovers are no longer the minor headache inconveniences that I remember from my twenties, but full blown head-cracking, mind-numbing agony!

My favourite trips to the pub are like those we had today.  It was a rainy, grey day, so our plans for a day out in the Autumn sunshine were put on hold and we decided instead to go along to the pub in our neighbouring village of Farley, The Hook and Glove, for a pub lunch.  Nicki, Caitie and I arrived to find a small, quaint and sadly quiet pub with Wadworth 6X on tap – for me obviously – and a fine menu containing such great staples as local fresh cut ham, egg and chips; steak and ale pie (made with the deeply marvellous Summer Lightining ale from the local brewery) and fish pie and peas.  We had a lovely meal for three in a small pub with the wind and rain darkening the day outside and it reminded me yet again that this is what being a family is all about.  Do I miss the old drinking days?  Not ever.

Just A Catholic Dad 18 – Temporarily lost in the Cybervoid

21/10/2010

Thinking about it, that’s a good title for the next JACD…if I can somehow engineer the content to fit!  Sorry for no JACD 18 this week, but all my bumpers (and just about everything else) are lost in the cybervoid due to my Network Drive imploding!  I’m slowly retrieveng everything, but due to time I’m nor going to get the chance to record this week.  School vacation next week is also going to place a spanner in the works, so please bear with me.

In the meantime, if you have any feedback, I would dearly love to read/hear/eat it (prizes to the first who figures out how to do that one!).  Please leave a comment here or contact me at feedback@justacatholicdad.com.

God Bless

Sean & Caitie
