orange daps

orange dapsWe've had a very productive day today - a big box of stuff to the charity shop (did you know that the Sue Ryder people can claim Gift Aid on items as well as on cash donations? Well they can - 28p for every pound; so we signed up for it.)

Then we moseyed around Welshpool for a bit, which involved B buying a book and me buying a pair of orange daps *. See my orange daps! They are orange! And they have little flowers on the toes!

And then ... we had lunch. Lunch! It was a date! We had lunch together! In the same place! People brought it to us! We sat at a table! Together! In the same country! The same dining area!

It was a very nice lunch and if you are ever passing through Welshpool I would thoroughly recommend The Royal Oak Hotel, especially the goats cheese ciabatta thingies. And B says that they serve a nice pint of Bateman's XB.

And then, we came home.

Now, we are doing the expenses so that I can do the VAT return in the week. We are doing it with not terribly good grace, only helped along with tea and strawberry cream cake. I am blogging in a brief hiatus whilst B tries to remember what he claimed for in the LAST expenses run three months ago.

Hence this is quite a long post.


* Which I believe is Somerset for 'plimsolls'. At least, I didn't know they were called anything BUT daps until I left home.

  1. ...and they're that pleasant, understated orange rather than the all-too-common knock-your-eyes-out dayglo orange.
    But are they comfy?

  4. COOL shoes.. :-)

    I've got used to calling them sneakers, and seeing them called daps again made me laugh out loud.. I guess I have to prepare myself for England again, I'm home in 2 weeks for a visit. Yay!

    Must also remember not to say 'pants' when I mean 'trousers' and stuff like that.
