Ginger Beer and the Deathly Hallows

April 12, 2012

If you have a bottle of ginger beer like this one then you are almost duty bound to do  something famous five -ish. Either that or you need some peace and quiet and some whisky.

It was a lovely day,  just right for going for a walk  – so Arlo and I collected Sally, Tom, Rachel and Lucy and set off for Longmarsh  (with the ginger beer, but sadly without Enid Blyton’s obligatory sandwiches and cake. Her sandwiches are usually ham though which we don’t eat). Generations ago Longmarsh used to be a salt marsh, then, at some point, I think it was a  rifle range and not so long ago it was a  landfill site. Now it is an important wildlife site with marshy land (good for getting muddy) and grassland and trees and it’s open space to walk around – or find sticks on, or chase people, or cast spells.  Some of us did all those things – others just walked and talked.

Having exhausted ourselves, eventually Arlo and I made our way back home to find we would be   minus the company of the beloved for the evening as he  was off having a good time with Grannie. We elected to have a film night and since Lucy and Arlo had spent a lot of the day casting spells, Arlo chose to watch the 2nd part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It’s quite scary! and surprisingly entertaining. And long.

The thing about a film night is that you have to eat in front of the telly – and not just popcorn either. So we had beanie burgers with cheese on top and a fresh egg, courtesy of the chickens on the allotment, and some lentils with peas and a leafy salad. And more ginger beer. The perfect end to a lovely day.
