The Gorse Fox and Silver Vixen had a super evening with the neighbours, yesterday. We all went to the local Indian Restaurant, Zeera Lounge, and were very well looked after. The meal was a great success and the overall bill was extremely reasonable.
Today we had to head in to Chi. Thi Silver Vixen had a a check-up at the optician, and the Gorse Fox had bits of shopping to do. This proved to be very well-timed. AT Clarks, there was a 50% discount on several ranges of shoes - which just happened to coincide with the Gorse Fox's taste, and in Mark & Spencer there was 205 discount voucher that made serious inroads in the Gorse Fox's annual buying blitz. The only problem was that one of the items he picked up will need to be returned as it was sleeveless when he wanted short-sleeved.
Oh, yes, and why the wry smile? Well the Gorse Fox had to buy some more trousers. It seems he has lost a further couple of inches... and is now back into a 34in waist. That must be the first time in 20 years!
Meanwhile, a blog reader has expressed interest in the bike... so Gorse Fox is awaiting contact to see if we have a match.
