We seem to have done a lot of eating out recently. After the usual Friday gathering a couple of weeks ago it was decided to try the 'Blue Rooms' in Stone. Famed for its super pies, we were anticipating a treat. We were not dissapointed. I had the Feta, mushroom & Spinach, while the Captain tucked into a slice of the steak and Stilton. It was a great meal and I would recomend it.
On Monday, after a flurry of text messages, we drove down to Fradley to meet up with Della & Garry from NB Muleless, who are making their way northwards. No trip to Fradley Junction would be complete without a visit to the Swan, where we had a great afternoon with pints and food. For a change it was not busy and we exchanged all our news in a very relaxed atmosphere. Hope to catch up with you Guys again when you get nearer to Stafford.
Yesterday we had planned to go to the Three Crowns Pie night, just up the road from Aston Marina with Sue & Andy from NB Festina Lente, however, after a last minute change of plan, we drove to the 'Radford Inn' on the Staffs. & Worcs where they do a daily carvery for under a fiver. It was an excellent meal and super value.
You can gather from the above that we are enjoying our winter at Aston. There is great company and we have made lots of new friends, even if we have both put on a few extra pounds over the winter.
