I'm back

Well I headed off straight after breakfast and got home about 12:30.

The weather is lovely and I should have gone to Rye Meads with my camera but as it is I didn't!!

I took 6 books with me and read the lot!! I finished the last one yesterday evening.
They were
Bernard Cornwell - Sharpe's Fury ***
Bernard Cornwell - Sharpe's Battle ****

not much to say about Sharpe they are good reads. The type of reliable book I like (I'm reading one at the mo!)

Val McDermind - A Darker Domain - *** a good thriller but perhaps a bit predictable.

Stuart McBride - Dying Light - ***
Henning Mankell - Pyramid - ***

Patrick O'Brian - Master & Commander - * I wanted to like this but couldn't.

I stayed at the Lion Inn, Gwytherin. Despite the lack of phone, telly and internet I would stay there again. The food was ok, the owner friendly and it made a nice base. Good value. The Old Black Lion at Hay-on-Wye I've stayed at many times. Prices are moving up but the location is excellent (and I like the area) and the food is SUPERB. The Guinea Fowl Thursday is one of the best meals I've had in a fair while.

I beieve sir is cooking lamb so guess where I'm off to.
