Today was our 10th wedding anniversary-this pretty much doubles the previous set record so as you can imagine was quite a landmark for us, one in need of celebrating. Both of us booked the day off work and had a word with him on high to fix some fantastic weather, and wow what a day. We set off to Hythe in Kent and had a train ride on a little train over Romney Marshes. On return we pottered around the town looking for some where to eat. We were just about to head back to the Nepalese restaurant when we turned and saw an eatery called ‘Wells’ and right away we knew this is where we had to eat. You see 10 years ago I became a ‘Wells’! Think it was fate. We sat in the garden me in the shade like a fat cat squinting and hubby in the shade, me drinking cider, hubby coke as was driving. Food was nice but not as on menu I ordered Coq au vin, this was billed as coming with a red wine sauce, sautéed potatoes and butternut squash, however came in sauce that was red but no wine, new potatoes and beans and carrots! Oh well it was cooked nicely!
It was during this trip out that Carla text me to say that ‘twitter’ was awash with tweets re the VLM and people receiving their yes/no packs, I instantly felt sick and the desire to rush home and check post. I lurched from panic that I might have a place, to hope that I had a place! Then that very lucky Carla text me to say that she would be running her first VLM in 2012! OMG!
Some of you might have heard of the child’s song ‘Alice the camel had ***** humps’ well I have renamed it to ‘Shaz the runner has two humps’ one hump still for not getting place in RPHM and the second? Well I’ll let you guess!!!
