You can also see the sparkles in my hair

And that horrendous bruise on my arm?
It's not. It's just a shadow for once.

Merry Christmas one and all.
Peas be with you!!

I love it. And you look lovely in this picture, very nice!

Went to see The Woman in Black with Mum today.
Details in Post Whore thread.

We didn't plan it for Valentine's Day, but we joked it was our date once we realised.
Mum and Dad don't make a big deal out of the old VD, because their Wedding Anniversary is on the 17th and that's always meant more to them.

They saw it on stage, and I've read the book, so we weren't really surprised by the story. Although Mum was caught out by some of the "jumps"!

Beforehand we went to the JD Wetherspoons very close by, The White Stag. It's right across from our new theatre (I'll have to take a photo for you) and just behind the cinema, so it's perfectly situated for trade. As usual it was hard to find an empty table - they either had people sat at them or were used as a repository for dirty glasses/ dishes. I swear the chain keeps its prices down by being under-staffed.

The barmaid serving me was exceptionally rude to some old wifies calling for service from the other side of the bar. They were in the right IMHO, because they'd been waiting longer than me. But this is a pub that allocates staff to certain areas of the bar, and they were really quite rude to her first.

Anyway, meant I got served quickly.

Mum had a panini with Wiltshire Ham and Cheddar. I had a Reggae Reggae (type of spicy sauce) wrap. We shared a portion of chips between us. I hadn't reaslied mine came with sliced tomato, so had to hoik it all out.

It was a lovely and friendly session before the film.

My second date this week!
I ordered a pizza a couple of months ago from Pizza Hut and complained via email about the quality.
I received a £5 gift card a few weeks later - long after I expected a response.

So, with it being half-term, I went to Pizza Hut with Mum and Dad and my gift card.
They have an Early Bird Special which is a pizza, unlimited salad, garlic bread (or potato wedges) and a soft drink, all for six quid.
We had the same deal in Cardiff and again with my bro in London.

This time we chose to have two between three, which was perfect, we all finished what we had and having skipped lunch (the deal is 15.00-17.00) we have now also skipped tea!
Again, good conversation, good laughs and a lovely time out. The total bill was £13.50 after my gift card, but that's because Dad and I had a beer. I paid for my beer, but Mum put the money forward as a tip, which was fine by me.

Garlic bread and half my portion of salad.

Jalapenoes were a free addition to the limited options for pizza toppings, so I added them to the pepperoni pizza.
Then picked them all off for Mum's sake.
The other one we had was chicken & red onion. That one was a bit tasteless actually. I've had it with jalapenoes before...

I caught Mum & Dad out a bit with this photo.
OMG Dad looks gaunt

He doesn't really look that different. And most importantly he looks just as happy.

Is there a reason you and your mom wear your hair the same style? It looks cute, but for some reason I don't remember too many moms and daughters doing that.

Mum's and my hairstyles are always in a state of flux.
If they look similar now it is simply coincidence.
Mine really needs cutting, I'm just waiting til payday, whereas Mum had hers cut on the day the photo was taken (Great Aunt Emma's funeral today, so she wants to look her best).

Her hair is much thicker than mine and needs a lot of taming.
Mine is the opposite - I haven't had it this long in a while because it's so flyaway and does my head in.

He's lost about 3 stone since then.
Maybe I see it because I'm his daughter and I've never known him so skinny.

Went out for lunch - alone - the other day.
Kinda payday/ end of term/ Easter treat.
Went to the Slug & Lettuce as Wetherspoons was more than usually full.

Decided to try their Philly Steak Sandwich and Chips.
Now I knew it would be nothing like a Philly Cheesesteak! But both the connection and the description drew me to it.

Description: A 6oz flat-iron steak, served in ciabatta, with BBQ sauce, melted Cheddar, lettuce and sautéed red and spring onions – served with chips and coleslaw (asked for no coleslaw, that was about the only thing they got right).

Everything else was NO. No no no no.
The steak shown in the menu photo was a single piece of meat. Mine came in strips, which were very chewy and had gristle and fat on them.
The cheese was not lovely melted cheese, but a few grains of something solid. I say something as they had not melted in any way despite being in contact with hot steak.

The chips! About half of the cup of chips was edible. The rest are what we would have called scraps back when we went to the chipshop. They used to sell these over-fried pieces of potato off with the remnants of batter from the fish. Mucho cheapo.

It arrived.
No concerns, I was only taking photos to show you.
Although I realise the steak has been chopped at this point.

Luckily, meal out with the 'rents on Good Friday went much better.
Their choice and their treat.
I'd offered to pitch in for a family trip to the Dairy Maid a week earlier. The day I ended up at the Slug & Lettuce. But they were already bound there before I finished school and were reluctant to change their plans - Dads has a better appetite at lunchtime sez Mum (not sure this is true)

Anyway, they offered me a Good Friday lunch and I accepted.
They went for a meal from the Two For £8.49 menu - two plates of fish & chips. Same as hey had the week before, and I suspect a few more times before that given the barstaff knew what they were going to order

I went for something from the Favourites Menu - the smaller Chicken New Yorker option, which was plenty big enough. I have a better appetite at about 10.15 (break time, when I am always ravenous!).

And yes, we were all happy with our choices. As when we've been there before - simple food, cooked as expected, friendly staff, no drama.

Partly demolished main courses.

Chocolate Brownie Sundae for dessert.
I got it free as I am signed up to for Hungry Horse emails.
This is the first one I haven't finished, but then given the last two freebies were Jack Daniels and Southern Comfort...

Dad and I made an attempt. But as written above, neither of us are used to a main meal at lunchtime, let alone a main meal with dessert.

Mum was tempted but declined as Good Friday is a day of fasting and abstinence (Dad is immune because of his age). I didn't realise how odd my family's interpretation of this was until I encountered people fasting for Ramadan. Basically, in my house, fasting meant sticking to three meals a day, no snacks and no dessert. Hang on - that's every day? Also we had a soup starter before our main meal to compensate, as soup counted as a drink.

Never mind.
Here is the all conquering Sundae.
