Fish & Chips

I was sitting in the office yesterday when suddenly the aroma of Fish & Chips wafted under my nose. Now there is something about the smell of Fish & Chips from a Chip shop that worms its way into my stomach and says EAT ME!!

Regretabbly Fish & Chips is no longer as popular as it once was. In Britain today we're more interested in the latest ethnic trend. "OOH Tarquin there's a very nice Bolivian takeaway opened in Esher."

Anyway my colleague couldn't finish it and offered it around. Naturally I WANTED it but being the good boy I am I resisted, but it was interesting to see the person volunteering to finish it off was Moroccan and he said he loved Fish & Chips.

To me Fish & Chips is best eaten in the paper and the flavour is enhanced by sitting in a car or on a bench to eat it.

Alas I don't eat it much these days, my last time would have been at Hunstanton with Dave & Joy two years back or on a trip to see the Puffins at Bempton Cliffs. There is someting about sitting in your car looking out to see eating Fish & Chips.

Oooer Pete, I find that hard to believe - you've not eaten fish and chips for THAT long???? Blimey, I reckon I sit in the car and eat some with Emma at least once a month or maybe more...Sit on the harbour at New Quay mostly though if possible. Seen the dolphins twice recently too, lovely it is. *Reminds self must do blog sometime.....*

I love fish and chips... hate having to ask for them, though, so I only get them if someone else is ordering. :-)
