Well the last few weeks have seen quite a few changes, our son Josh has gone to University (proud mummy moment) and our youngest Jessica has turned 15 today – just where has the time gone?! Queen of the pub Polly was twelve at the weekend, along with Autumn who was 3. The years gather momentum as we get older, I’m sure of it.
Another change has been the weather, autumn is finally here. Our walks along the river are misty, wet, muddy, fallen leaf & conker gathering fun. During our meanders through the local fields my mind turns to the kind of warming comfort foods I’d like to tuck into on an autumnal day. The result is this weeks Specials Menu. So here we are folks, for your eyes only 😉
