Woke up around midday. Phillip was working on the church profile. Had toast and marmite for breakfast and a cup of tea. We were a little late getting to Emily’s and Phillip got a strawberry frappe from Costa.
Emily had had her hair plaited for her in a french braid, and was wearing a new white jumper with silver butterflies sparkling on it. Not her usual look and it suited her. We sat out in the garden with her. She wanted to try the drink so I got a little mug and a spoon as they didn’t have straws. She really liked it and asked Phillip to bring her one next time we visit. Phillip chatted to Anne about dogs being pack animals, smoking and the time his Mum visited him in hospital and fell down the stairs.
When she went in I got my joke book out and Phillip read from it, selecting the insults category by flipping at random through the book. When Gary was introduced he introduced Emily as a c*** which is the sort of thing they always do. Phillip said ‘I know that.’ Gary seemed to like it that Phillip was reading insult jokes because he tried telling his own jokes a few times in passing. Next Phillip chose battle of the sexes jokes and blonde jokes. He found them really funny when he was reading them, and Emily really enjoyed it too. I had a beer and Emily had the pear cider I brought her. I got it wrong, she is allowed to drink there. They just didn’t like it when she bought a lot, so she gave them to me that time. On her painkillers she could have one beer and they made sure it was only one. We left when it got chilly. I had a nice time.
Went for a walk in the park and took some photos. Phillip wanted to cook gammon, egg and chips so we stopped off at the shop. Watched a bit of Big Bang Theory until the kitchen was free. I played Bob Dylan songs whilst Phillip cooked. My favourite is Shelter From The Storm.
The food was nice. Washed up listening to The Doors. Phillip is looking forward to new Big Bang Theory tonight.
Here are my photos from the walk –
