Now,down to the important bit, what did we have to eat? We had bread and olive oil to start with. There's nothing like good bread. We then shared antipasto misto, a delicious conglomeration of Italian meats, including my favourite mortadella, rice salad, new potatoes, green beans, grilled peppers, aubergine and courgette, and huge olives.

Next we went to one of my favourite shops, I'm not getting paid for this, honestly, John Lewis' (or George Henry Lees - GHL - the old name of the shop before it moved to the Liverpool One development). Having sent the better half to occupy himself looking at the electricals, I set out on a leisurely walk around the ladies clothes - a delightful occupation. One of the advantages of a department store is that they have ranges from lots of different labels. Flowery summer frocks are on show at the moment, and as there were some such lovely fabrics, I thought I'd take a few snaps to share with you.
