Recipe for a perfect day

So today pretty much constitutes a perfect day: Woke up, got some work done, Pete made me coffee, Dave my father in law made breakfast, we set off home fairly early on a beautiful sunny day. On the radio we listened to the Humphrey Littleton memorial concert and decided, using the sat nav to visit Cirencester on the way home. As opposed to actually visiting the town and it's many delis we lay in the sunshine on the grass of the amphitheatre, trying to work out what went where since English Heritage had omitted any information boards.

We then went to Waitrose, brought some yummy things for a picnic lunch and dinner, had said picnic overlooking very senic view in Birdlip...

...and decided to go to the cinema. We just made it in time for a showing at the junction 10 showcase, where we hadn't seen a film since I was a student in Staffs.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World is an awesome film, in case you were wondering.

Then we made it home, spent a bit of time being domestic, aand also followed up something we heard on lose ends so now we have tickets booked for C.W. Stoneking in Brum on Wed (

No I'm typing this in bed full of yummy feta and minted pea tarts, organic veg and lovely robust French red wine. To top it all off we'd only missed 10 mins of Miss Marple.
