Lesley was over from Australia so went for dinner with her, Barbara and John at the Park Gate Inn, then next day to Dobies garden centre.
Rick and Phil went to some manly ACWS conference, so Mary and I set off to go to Highgate cemetery. We had a good wander around the graveyard, although the woman at the entrance was possibly one of the most miserable I have met! On the way out it was someone else who was very helpful and pointed Mary in the way of a civil war grave – so we went back in. Had lunch at the Gatehouse, then drove to Camden market, but there was nowhere to park, so we went home via Bluewater. We had been discussing what to have for dinner, and then Mary made a remark about wanting lampshades – so I took her to the lighting department in John Lewis – where she looked at me rather oddly – appears she had said Lamb shanks!
