Candice: As I may have mentioned before I’ve been abit slack recently – due to the fact my work has got a tiny bit busy. This has caused an inability to think about more than one thing at a time, unusual for a woman I hear you cry, but true.
However, things seem to be calming down and thus I have managed to fit in some meetings with my writing partner in crime. We’ve found a new home too – Wellebourne Airfield. ‘Huh’, says you, but no we don’t stand in the middle of the field and duck, or discuss while wing walking! Its actually just 10 minutes from where I am working at the moment and has a cracking cafe that does a good line in jackets…. and cakes.
It also comes with the added bonus of an interesting character behind the counter.
Trip one two weeks ago and after being served we both sat down, looked at each other, and said “He’s got to go in the next book.” Why, I hear you cry, well it would be the great line in depreciating comments.
“Oh, you’ve finished have you.” “That will be £3 for the meal, oh you’ve noticed, you’ve read the board, damn really should take that down as dont want the customers to know how much its worth…” and we could go on. Imagine this said with a Basil Fawlty delivery and you are on mark.
To cap it all – last time we went we had both eaten lunch so it was straight to cake. I had the coffee and walnut, Phil the carrot. I don’t think mine touched the sides on the way down, partly due to hunger as well as quality of cake! However, after this influx of sugar we were off. The next thing we knew there were ideas left right and centre, and returning to the office was really an interruption. I wrote up some notes on email, Phil argued the toss over some points – it was like old times. Its a shame I can’t get him a job at our place, though we’d not get any work done!
So we are back off there on Thursday for more cakiness, lets hope it works its magic just as well.
