Pa made me smile today.
He asked me when I was off to Paris for the weekend.
On Friday I said...on the Eurostar.
He thought for a minute and said 'well just to let you know.......you won't get a decent breakfast there'
Why? said I....
He laughed to himself and said 'well last time I went, after I'd had a cup of coffee - not tea mind you but coffee - and some sort of roll, I was waiting for my breakfast......and I waited and waited and waited...until the dining room was almost empty, and someone told me that there was no proper breakfast.....imagine that....apparently what you get there is continental'.....
The 'last time he went there' was nearly 60 years ago.......a young northern married man who had never been abroad before and was with a Church group taking his young daughter to Lourdes.
