Cousinly theatrics, burgers and shakes galore and a fond farewell

Cousinly? Is that even a word? Well no, but ‘ly’ is added onto words to make them descriptive, and seeing as the theatre show in question starred my cousin, I went with it. Cousinly. Forgive me. See my highlights of the week below, which included a great many burgers, milkshakes and more…

1 X doggy door installed. 1 X day of reminding Bertie how to push his way in and out, and all are happy chappies.

Friday, 29 May 2015: Farewell lunch at The Forester’s Arms (Forries) in Newlands

My Nutella shake, at the Forester's Arms in Newlands (Forries). My first visit, most pleasant with a roaring fire as the rain battered down outside. We were there for the most wonderful manager's farewell lunch.

The very interesting floor at Forries.

That’s all, folks. The weather’s icy, we’ve both been poorly so I predict lots of naps and reading by the fire this weekend. Keep warm! πŸ™‚
