    plus I think the resturants are at the opposite end either same deck or one above (?) so not far to stagger in heels

    I have the O2 sim, but it won't accept the code... think I may have to put some money on it!

    We had a frocky dinner tonight.

    Spanish olive and potato stew from Mr TS's 50th last year.

    And a chick pea, broad bean and pumpkin tagine, made last year too.

    Topped it off with a whoopsied mini naan bread.

    We will get to the bottom of the freezer before the month is out.

    Sometimes in the summer he makes mojitos with the fresh lime juice too.
